Ancestral spirits/energies is something I Sight also. One thing for I though, is even though I seek the Truth to confirm the reality of things, I also have Faith, where when I Irits Sights something, I will accept it without physical proof if the Irits is strong enough. I have experienced over the years that it is usually to I benefit.
Even so, ancestral spirits/energies could be just as supernatural and unreal as the some of things the I them label as supernatural and unreal.
The energy doesn't die but just changes form argument isn't proof that a person's essence, spirit, soul, character, or whatever you want to call it, continues after a person's body dies. It is quite possible that all that a person is, is the workings of the brain in combination with the body, and when a person dies, their brain will continue to retain the information for a certain amount of time afterwards, until the brain can't hold it anymore. So a person's flesh decomposes through chemical reaction and becomes other chemicals compounds. Any energy that is released may be nothing more than the energy that is released by any natural chemical process and has nothing to do with our spirit, soul, etc.
Ancestral spirits/energies can not be proven any more than the existence of God.
Here is a Reasoning I made before.
There are too many things to think about in Life than to worry about what happens in death.
I don't have a view on death, I view is on Life. I sight Life as Itinuing from generation to generation as One Life.
The reason I sight Life as Itinuing from generation to generation is because I can see this. I know it is reality because I experience it and see it happen around I.
I don't think too much about death and the after life because I have no memory of experiencing death, and I haven't had a glimpse of the afterlife. I have only heard stories about it. What I know for sure is Life, so that is where I spend most of I thought.
If I were to focus on one of the theories of death, which theory should I believe? The theory that appeals most to I, or the theory that appeals to most? I choose to focus on Life and leave theories to others.
From I reading of the Bible, I can see that it says that when you die you are dead, you don't transition to some spiritual realm and you don't go up in the sky. Where the tree falls, there shall it lie until judgement takes it's course. When judgement day comes, the living and the dead will be judged according to their works, and the righteous will Rise unto Life IverLiving and the wicked will fall to the second and final death. Even though the Bible speaks of death like this, most christians and jews think that their dead family and friends are in heaven watching over them. I am I ancestors and I ancestors are I, and I am I descendants and I descendants are I.
I don't need to focus on death or afterlife to Live for Jah, I don't need to focus on death or afterlife to appreciLove Life. And I don't need the hope of the afterlife to make I feel better about the family or friends that die. I work to change I ways and Live unto the Most High God Jah RasTafarI, not for a reward now, or for a reward in the afterlife. I work so, because this is the trod of Man, and I accept who I am.
