HEAVEN AND HELL OR THE DIVINE JUSTICE ACCORDING TO SPIRITISM

Allan Kardec

11. Quite different is the position of the spirit who has become dematerialized during its earthly life, even in cases in which death occurred by the most painful maladies. The fluidic links which unite its body with its perispirit, being already weakened, break without any shock; the spirit’s confidence in the future, which it foresees in thought and sometimes even in reality, causes it to regard death as a deliverance and its suffering as a trial; hence there results for the spirit a calmness and resignation that soften the severest suffering. When death has taken place, the links that connected the spirit with its fleshly body being instantly broken, no painful reaction takes place in its consciousness; the spirit feels, on awakening in the spirit-world, free, lively, relieved of a heavy burden, and thoroughly happy in its complete deliverance from physical pain.
