Most of us tend to think of the afterlife as a place that we visit after we die. Perhaps you imagine heaven as a beautiful city in the sky. Or, maybe, like many of our ancestors, you picture a void, a place of dark shadows and endless wandering.
The problem, of course, is that life after death, in a literal sense, is a matter of faith. Other than living a good life, as defined by our chosen religion, there is little that we can do to prepare for the afterlife.
