All I can say is what my witch teacher taught to me.
When we die, the body is disposed of, either by burial or cremation.
The body then returns to the earth. Insects, birds, animals, then live off the resulting plants, fed by our bodies. And so, in that sense, we live again.
It is a natural cycle of Life; birth, death, life.
There are many theories of what happens after we die. None of us for sure knows what will happen after we die, the most we know is that our body will be either buried or cremated. Apart from that, we know nothing else.

You don't need proof to have Faith. All you need is belief.
But a belief does not make it true!
Millions believe that Moses went up a mountain, and spoke with God.
How do we know this?
Because Moses said so. Not a single witness.
But that is supposed to have happened thousands of years ago. What do you think would happen if a modern man told the story a little differently, because he had "spoken with God" ?
He would be gently led to the nearest mental hospital.
So, there is no "proof" about Moses speaking with God. It is a matter of belief; of Faith.
Millions believe in an "after life"; many do not! Many believe in ghosts and spirits. Many do not!
It has been said many times on this site, you may believe anything you wish. And if your belief gives you comfort in this Vale Of Tears, then Amen to that!

it's a leaf of faith. nothing is certain in this life but a beginning and an end. [or, you know the circle of life] i like to believe in reincarnation. i like to believe that we die, and we can go to a place for a bit to see loved ones and those who have died then when we're ready return to earth. but it's more likely we die and that's it. i believe in spirits, and have encountered them, that's why i believe what i believe. but it all comes down to a leap of faith.
Death will always be one of the greatest mysteries of this earth, remember that magick is nothing miraculous, it does not hold the secrets of the universe. I can't wait to experience what it's like, I highly doubt that we simply cease to exist, think how strange that non-existence is!
