My argument is that we don't nned to wait to experience a relationship with JAH and the spiritual realm. We can find the etrnal and infinite while in this place of linear time and limits. We can bridge the gap. To transcend the limits of the mind and body is to become more spiritual.
The potential is still here, the spirit created the universe and all life on earth, God is with us in time as well as in eternity. JAH lives and is in the land of the living here now as well as the life after this life.
To wait to meet god until the flesh rots is foolishness. We must seek friendship, sonship, daughtership... NOW!
For the afterlife is a continuum of the now life, to put hope there but not now is foolishness.
"Nature is like a canvas, a painting of countless options and possibilities. You don't really worship spirit, because you are also spirit, and spirits don't worship one another. What makes you different from spirit overall is that you are locked into temporality. You have a body, like a piece of cloth that is decayable. While you stay in it, it's hard for you to have the same abilities that spirit has without a body. It is also easy to make mistakes about what is real, and how to go about things effectively."

Meditation and prayer, chanting and finding unity with humanity and creation get us out of limited ego body identity and into the spirt of everlasting oneness. Umbuntu:I am because we are. We are star dust, we are eternal, spirit changes form, our form is not the same as when we were in our mothers womb or when we were children yet out spirit remains.
Its hard to be spiritual while in a body but it is possible. Its hard to see eternity in the palm of our hand and infinity in a grain of sand yet it is here. Heaven and Earth are one and we are the ones who must realize it and reveal it.
Hope in a future is like a harvest, we must plant and water now. Eternal life is here now in time and space.
We cannot think we will serve JAH and be with JAH in the hereafter if we do not strive to be with and serve now.
And the spirit manifest flesh and we behold JAH beauty full of grace and truth.
We dont have to die to go to heaven because JAH was born to bring heaven to us on earth.
