Wow. I am so glad that I posed this question - so much here to consider!

For a long time, I have felt that based on your personal convictions and beliefs, your soul/spirit acts accordingly. Some people choose to rest in heaven/summerland/etc., some people choose to come back to earth in physical form and have another go and others choose to return in spirit and act as a guide.

I think of the places the ancients believed our souls travelled to after death as like a really old nightclub - sort of like Studio 54. For thousands of years, the Elysian Fields, Valhalla, etc. were pretty happening, active places where the dead congregated. Currently, it seems that Christianity is the major paradigm, so the collective "believers" I think have created a "heaven" where their souls tend to congregate. And like Studio 54 - as interest in the Pagan religions increases, I feel that the old "places" are sort of reawakening (and also that many of the ancient Gods and Goddesses are being reawakened as well). Sort of a "please excuse our dust as we remodel".

Of course, I've pretty much operated within a paradigm of Karma and Reincarnation, even though it causes my personal experience to occasionally rub up uncomfortably with the Wiccan Rede and the 3 Fold Law. What Malkin says gives me a great deal of food for thought.
