I have a hard time imagining what the afterlife will "feel" like in a consciousness/realization aspect. I just can't picture the feeling, or the experience of waking up on the mansion worlds. Will it feel how it does here on Urantia? Will we be self-aware? I'd like to hear how you would picture it and how the experience would feel.

Waking up on the mansion world must be fantastic, so much so that I often think of these moments.
Just woke up, we will remember most of the events we have lived on Earth, but all the events connected to our spiritual life, everything else forget it.

The material mind is, I think, the source of fear and anxiety. I think much of the difference in our experience lies in that change and that wonder, delight, and joy will not find this obstacle or mind poison (as the UB calls it) such an influence.

(532.7) 47:3.1 On the mansion worlds the resurrected mortal survivors resume their lives just where they left off when overtaken by death. When you go from Urantia to the first mansion world, you will notice considerable change, but if you had come from a more normal and progressive sphere of time, you would hardly notice the difference except for the fact that you were in possession of a different body; the tabernacle of flesh and blood has been left behind on the world of nativity.

(533.5) 47:3.7 On mansion world number one (or another in case of advanced status) you will resume your intellectual training and spiritual development at the exact level whereon they were interrupted by death. Between the time of planetary death or translation and resurrection on the mansion world, mortal man gains absolutely nothing aside from experiencing the fact of survival. You begin over there right where you leave off down here.

(535.1) 47:4.5 Your Adjuster memory remains fully intact as you ascend the morontia life. Those mental associations that were purely animalistic and wholly material naturally perished with the physical brain, but everything in your mental life which was worth while, and which had survival value, was counterparted by the Adjuster and is retained as a part of personal memory all the way through the ascendant career. You will be conscious of all your worth-while experiences as you advance from one mansion world to another and from one section of the universe to another — even to Paradise.

(535.2) 47:4.6 Though you have morontia bodies, you continue, through all seven of these worlds, to eat, drink, and rest. You partake of the morontia order of food, a kingdom of living energy unknown on the material worlds. Both food and water are fully utilized in the morontia body; there is no residual waste. Pause to consider: Mansonia number one is a very material sphere, presenting the early beginnings of the morontia regime. You are still a near human and not far removed from the limited viewpoints of mortal life, but each world discloses definite progress. From sphere to sphere you grow less material, more intellectual, and slightly more spiritual. The spiritual progress is greatest on the last three of these seven progressive worlds.

Great fun and adventure ahead!!

There's a very interesting article in the Fellowship Herald titled, The Journey Following Mortal Death, By William S. “Bill” Sadler, Jr., Mansion Worlds. The link is http://urantia-book.org/archive/newslet ... ld2014.pdf Scroll down for the article.
