If we assume that heaven consists of people from a variety of nations on earth, how will we be able to communicate with each other after death?
The answer is that everyone freed from the corporeal shackles of a physical body will immediately enjoy a spiritual language in the next world. This spiritual language is universal and is intrinsic to all “tongues,” since inwardly everyone is a spirit.
While on earth we experience this language as mental thought. Thought is spiritual speech. For instance, when people of all nations and backgrounds think about a “tree” they will form similar mental concepts of a tree regardless of their native tongue. A photograph of a palm tree communicates the same essential meaning to all human minds.
In the spiritual world, our spiritual bodies have mouths and ears adapted to communicate these mental ideas as if they were the words of worldly speech but with a greater degree of perfection and articulation.
The reason for this increased articulation is that, as spiritual beings, we are not only closer to God and fundamental reality, but are closer to the particular things and principles from which our thoughts emerge and find form. In other words, a spirit speaks from an a priori reality, which consists of the minute elements and particulars that combine to make the general form of some idea-concept.
A spirit speaks from the deeper realm of causes while an earth-dweller speaks from external effects—in the same way that a mind’s thoughts both cause and descend (top-down causality) into the material world of physical/verbal language by terminating their influx into adapted organic structures.
Evidence for this deeper communication is that telepathy is a real phenomenon that takes place between two minds that resonate in the same key (love or passion). All thought generates wave-signals and these waves can be sensed by the highly sensitive, organic structures of the human brain. Since this type of communication deals with ideas, people with different languages from different parts of the world have the potential to communicate on a mental plane and have a similar understanding of the meanings of these mental images and ideas.
Science has yet to prove telepathy, but I believe it will be proven within this new century. (In fact, modern science has a hard time dealing with the mind/brain problem and understanding what consciousness is.) Consciousness and mind has its origins in the spiritual world and is what animates and thinks within the physical human brain.
The fact that we can be hypocritical and deceive others is proof that our intentions and thoughts are discrete or distinct from our physical actions and facial expressions.
All parts of our physical body have reference to some part of the physical brain. The various parts of the brain have reference to some mental function and disposition. All mental functions and dispositions have reference to some spiritual quality that exists outside of time and space.
In fact, heavenly communication far surpasses mere telepathy. Angels (evolved human spirits) have the acute faculty of apprehending an individual’s motives and intentions in all things communicated.
Everything is disclosed in the other world! So be watchful of the subtext in all the things you do and say.
