    Your question immediately made me think of Plato's dialogue called "Apology."
    http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/apology.html
    At the end (in the paragraph that begins, "Let us reflect in another way..."), Socrates is describing what he thinks might happen after one dies, what happens to his/her spirit.

    Enjoy!

    That is a big question.... I think... your soul, being the center of your being, determines how you respond to all.... to people, to events, to everything. In that way you are one with all...and your soul is the whole world.
    Hope I made "sense" with that.

    P.S. In case you would like to read what Wikipedia has to say about "soul:"
