    In Ontario, if you die without a last will and testament and are survived by a spouse and children, your assets are divided as follows: the first $200,000 goes to your spouse with the remaining 1/3 balance to spouse and 2/3 of the balance to your children.

    Very sharp! I will thank you, my Green Knight, with two:

    -- “It is said that all voices are the voices of the Buddha. Is it true or not, master Tosu?”, asked the monk.
    -- “It is true”, related Tosu.
    -- “Master don’t fart around so loudly”, answered the monk and Tosu hit him on the spot.
    -- “It is said that rough words and gentle phrases return to the first principle. Is it true or not, master Tosu?”, went on the monk.
    -- “It is true”, said Tosu.
    -- “May I call you, Master, a donkey?”
    Tosu hit him again
    😵

    ...And the flip side:

    -- “The phenomenal body perishes. What is the Dharma-body that remains solid, master Dairyu?”, asked the monk.
    -- “The autumn foliage of the mountains spreads like brocade; the water in the valley remains blue as indigo”, replied Dairyu

    Hi

    You said what happens when YOU die, ok the you thats mentioned is a spiritual being, in a material body, having a human experience.

    So when your body dies (because the soul that you are, cant) and accordingto your karma, you will take another birth anywhere in this universe

    Religion or spiritual life is meant to raise your consciousness to the level of Love of God, which qualifies you to enter the spiritual world where you never experience birth or death again.

    The Vedanta teachings are a wonderfull place to start with your spiritual life.

    Google Srimad Bhagavatam by Srila Prabhupada

    There is a great release when you die and depending on what karma you have left will determine what sort of experiences (material and spiritual) you will have to go through to address your karma and move closer to nirvana.

    I don't know. But I think it's a distracting thought from what we should be doing alive and in the present.

    Yes, do your best whilst you live herenow and step in bravely to the places the circumstances lead you; with the ones you like you may discuss whatever you please; and treat politely and make happy whoever has a point different than yours;

    And may you avoid the petty quarrels for they are not compatible to your spirit

    When we die, we cease to exist (mentally). We generally either become worm-meat or ash depending on body disposal. Don’t like it but the truth is the truth.
    And would not want to delude myself (even if I could which I cannot ) into believing I will have an afterlife because I would regard that as intrinsically horrifically harmful no matter how pleasant the delusion!
