My friend then asked but why wouldn't you want to continue to experience life and all the fun. I explained to him that it's not the materialistic things that makes you happy in your soul. You don't need vacations, nice cars or nice clothes to give your soul a complete fulfillment of bliss. Once you are a spirit you are experiencing happiness all the time without having to need anything. You are a being of love, and your journey will continue but without all the suffering and need of earthy possessions.
Love and Light to you all :)
