Birth and death - What happens after death?
According to Kundalini Yoga, the source of humans is bliss. That bliss manifests in the union between male and female. This is important to the survival of the species, not just humans but also for all creatures. A liquid called Vindh is released which enters the womb which is like a dark bag. If we are carrying valuables in a bag, we are very careful about it. Similarly, the child growing inside the dark womb should be protected. Whatever activities the mother does, a part of that load falls on the growing life inside the womb. Safety is the most important aspect. From this dark womb, the child emerges into the light. Brightness resides outside. The value of life is realized in that brightness.
Death is like going back into darkness, almost a reverse process of birth. Birth and death are like breathing. Just as breathing stops only when life energy leaves the body, the cycle of birth and death stops only after all desires are extinguished. Time also goes in a cyclical manner through the different Yugas - Satya, Treta, Dwapara, and Kali Yugas.
After death, our desires remain and the rest is darkness. Every desire we have, by Universal Law, has to be fulfilled one day. By harboring desires, we continue to experience the cycle of birth and death. Whatever thought is the dominant one, that will determine the next birth. Every morning is like a new birth and every night is like death. Our rewards and punishments are given right here.
God is like a watch battery. As long as the battery remains charged, the watch hands keep moving. Similarly, that power keeps life moving in our body, and it also keeps the wheel of time moving. We are released from that movement, an event called Moksha or salvation only when there are no more desires left.
Blessings to all
