Eighty years in the face of eternity is not such a big deal. From an eternal view, if the ultimate pleasure we're going after is transcendence - the eternal relationship with the Almighty Himself, then who would be luckier: Someone who lives an easy life with little connection to God, or someone who is born handicapped, and despite the challenges, develops a connection with God.
The second video depicts how a person's life "could have been..." if the right choices had been made, if the opportunities were seized, if the potential was actualized.
This video - the pain of squandered potential - is much more difficult to bear. The pain creates regret which removes the barriers and enables the soul to completely connect to God. It is for people who have done good but need to be purified. " Heaven is where the soul experiences the greatest possible pleasure - the feeling of closeness to God.
A handful of people are too evil for Gehenom, and they are punished eternally. Of course not all souls experience that to the same degree. Some tickets are front-row center; others are back in the bleachers.
Where your seat is located is based on the merit of your good deeds - e.g. A second factor in heaven is your understanding of the environment.
The creation of man testifies to the eternal life of the soul.
The Torah says, "And the Almighty formed the man of dust from the ground, and He blew into his nostrils the SOUL of life" (Genesis 2:7).On this verse, the Zohar states that "one who blows, blows from within himself," indicating that the soul is actually part of God's essence.Since God's essence is completely spiritual and non-physical, it is impossible that the soul should die.(The commentator Chizkuni says this why the verse calls it "soul of LIFE.") That's what King Solomon meant when he wrote, "The dust will return to the ground as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it." (Ecclesiastes 12:7) For anyone who believes in a just and caring God, the existence of an afterlife makes logical sense. There is obviously a place where good people receive reward and bad people get punished.Could it be this world is just a playground without consequences? Could he really "end it all" by just swallowing some poison? (see Maimonides' 13 Principles of Faith: com/jl/p/mp/) The question of "why do bad things happen to good people" has a lot to do with how we look at existence.The way we usually perceive things is like this: A "good life" means that I make a comfortable living, I enjoy good health, and then I die peacefully at age 80. Anything else is "bad." In a limited sense, that's true.
