What do you believe will happen when you die?

I'll answer this!
I think three things happen when you die, because your self is made up of three components.
There's your body-
Which goes into the ground and is eaten by bugs and rots away to nourish and feed and grow in the earth, enriching the world, becoming a part of everything.
Then there's your consciousness-
Which goes... well, that goes where ever you believe it will go. People who believe in Heaven and Hell will be placed in one of the two, people who believe in nothingness will just blink out and dwell, unknowingly in the nothingness between this world and whatever happens next. And those that believe in reincarnation will follow their souls.
And finally there's the soul-
which has nothing to do with you at all. Your soul is what gives you life. It's what allows you to love, to feel connected to all things and to live your life and enjoy it. And it will go on forever. Your soul is only your own for at time. When you die it passes on to a new body, a new consciousness, seeking to do it's will, continue on and live forever on this plane.
Some souls try to find their mates, others just want to do good or bad things and still others just want to experience life in all it's richness and beauty.
That's my belief, at least. It may not be right, and who am I to say it is? But it's what I honestly and firmly believe and it's what feels like the truth for me so that's all that matters.
