In voodoo, death is an extension of life and not be feared

The 'spiritual realms' operate over and alongside the physical realms where God has absolute authority. It is a real world, invisible to the natural eye but visible to the eye of faith. The following paragraphs are an excerpt of Patrick Delices's memoir, a Pan-African Haitian scholar and political analyst. He wrote it on the sudden demise of Max Gesner Beauvoir on September 12, 2015.

Just a year ago, Professor Delices had met Max G. Beauvoir. Beauvoir was one of Voodoo's highest priests (Ati Houngan) and most venerated supreme servant (Supreme Servitur). Professor Delices was amazed at Beauvoir's wisdom because it surpassed every graduate course he had ever learned in universities. He had taught Professor Delices something which he never heard before-- the secret of life, not to fear the death. The wisdom of Max Beauvoir was supreme as his humility along with his humanity was sublime. In Haitian Voodoo, the ancestral-spiritual realm is understood to be Africa, where the humanity was born and where our souls, after death return to live. Haitian voodoo teaches that death is a process of reborn whereby the soul gets released from the body to bring out the God within us for the greater good of humanity. Life and death are complimentary forces that transform one into the other-- death is not a frightening thing; it is an extension of life. However, this thought differs from western philosophy which says that life and death are not same; they are separate entities where death is a fearful object which is never welcomed.

Day of the Dead Celebration in Haiti

The day of the dead might strike the ignorant as a macabre event, especially in Haiti where the November 1st and 2nd celebration is intricately linked with Vodou. But the practice, shared by other countries such as Mexico and Guatemala, with roots as far-reaching into history the Aztec civilization, though called by other names in different locales, is not so much a dark, pagan ritual as a joyous celebration of the life of lost ancestors.

Hundreds of practitioners of the Vodou and Christian persuasion flock cemeteries and light homemade candles, strew flowers, and offer food and alcohol to the spirits Ghede and Baron Samdi. And since Vodou's legalization in 2003, the ceremonies have become more accessible and certainly more attractive to tourists wanting to witness the cultural spectacle.

Christianity And Judaism, Where Do Dead People Go?

Christianity has various beliefs when it comes to life after death but one thing followers have in common is that they believe in the afterlife.

Catholics, Baptists, Protestants and other Christians have been taught differently about afterlife beliefs. However, the existence of heaven, hell and purgatory are very common.

Many Christians believe that the fate of the departed depends on how he lived his life on Earth. According to the Catholic Church's teachings, people who led a good life tend to go to Heaven, where they will be with God, angels, departed relatives, and fellow believers. Those who did bad things on Earth and did not repent them are expected to get punished in Hell. Bad people who hurt others while they were alive suffer from hellfire for eternity. Another Catholic belief is the existence of purgatory, which is located in the middle of Heaven and Hell. This is where people who failed to confess their sins usually go to. Some believe that spirits that were sent there can move on to Heaven in time.
