from the spirits of those who passed away,
mostly their loved ones
who now lie deep underground
in the World Of The Dead.
on their emotions and beliefs.
Even though they are dead,
those who are alive
are still emotionally attached and couldn't let go.
A lot of people think of the dead
as living in Paradise or some better place
that's why they readily think
they have the influence in the lives of the living.
And thinking that the dead
are already living in Paradise after death
is definitely wrong
unless they lived the righteous life
to make them go straight to Heaven.
But living a life of sin imprisons them
in the World Of The Dead maybe for a while.
No dead can go to Heaven
unless he is purged - cleansed and made pure
in the place called Purgatory.
Asking the dead for guidance or help
is like asking from a statue.
They can never do anything
for they no longer have life.
They can never move a muscle,
and there's no more intelligence left in them
to give advice or counsel.
They are now souls,
incapable of speaking words
as clearly as a living person can.
And if ever they speak,
they speak with muffled voice
that surely gives the creeps.
People never realized that the dead
can no longer take part in the world of the living
and can never answer people
who calls them for help.
It's very wrong to do this
and it's disturbing and horrible.
The dead deserves utmost respect
and never to be disturbed.
They are already at rest
and never to live again
unless they are reincarnated by God
to continue their development.
And now they lie in wait for the Judgment Day,
the day when time comes to a close
and the living and the dead
are judged according to their deeds.
Asking the dead to guide and help you
in any endeavor or undertaking
is a great insult to our Maker
whom we should call on always.
It's like stripping Him of His power
to help and to guide,
to save and to rescue,
to give Wisdom And Enlightenment, etc.
It's like saying that there's no God in this world
that's why they call on the dead
believing they have the power.
These people are clearly out of their minds
for they never thought of the living
and instead call on the dead.
even though are only humans and not gods,
can advice, guide, help, save, etc.
The dead can never do anything ever again,
not even tiny movements.
How can the dead offer any help
when they can't even help themselves
get out from their dark and lifeless world
right down below the earth?
And for them to help the living,
they should come back alive first of all.
