If I don’t live for ever, if I don’t go to heaven when I die or wake up on the judgment day or if I don’t, at least, reincarnate, then life must be completely meaningless, materialistic and nonspiritual.

Life is short. I will never see something like this again. Death is not a mystery, life is. It is amazing! All the colors, all the birds, the wind and the sun and the moon, everything. I cant believe my eyes. I can’t believe that I am here. But I know very well that I will disappear in a few years and I will not come back and I will not go anywhere else. I will go to where I came from, nonexistence.

Then do you live in constant fear?

Is this statement sarcastic? Your options seem limited.

How do you "know very well" ? Is that what you are getting at? The difference between you and Eckhart is degree of experience. If he is able to live in peace knowing what he knows through his experience then no idea about beliefs will change that. It is like disputing about whether an apple is truly an apple. You don't have a belief about an apple, you know it is an apple.

You cannot dispute with my experience. You can try, but it won't change my state of awareness and peace. If someone feels too much peace are we to condemn them as well? "You shouldn't be so peaceful because I am not!"

But imagine, for a moment, even being OK with non-existence.
That is what is so cool! Living life no longer depends upon what comes with or after death?

When you live in the now there is no inner/outer life. "Your life" merges with the All. You can be inside looking out and outside looking in at the same time!
