God, says Spong, is ultimately one, and each of us is part of that oneness. This is how we live on after death: t in Heaven or Hell, but as part of the eternity that continues after we die beyond the barriers of time and space. Spong says the discovery of the eternal can be found within each of us as we go deeper into ourselves. By seeking it, by living each day to its fullest, we will come to understand how we live on after death.
