Are you preparing for Life?
It’s an important question to have clarity on, for people often allow their thought to be formed and molded by where they expect to end up.
Like taking a road-trip, we prepare for our pre-determined destination. If we are headed to the beach, we pack to be at the beach. If we are headed to a ski-resort, we pack to ski. Likewise, if one is clear in their mind that they are “headed toward Life,” they will think, act and prepare accordingly. Every day will be a new day, and life ever fresh, inspired and progressive.
To the contrary, if one sees death as an ending point, it can have a ruinous effect on that person’s health and happiness. They may experience decline, instead of improvement. Human thought prepares for where it expects to end.
The cure for decline toward death, is to grow toward Life. We should leave this earth in good health and with a happy outlook.
The very best of Life can be discovered now. It isn’t any better after death. Life is God, and God is fully present now. As we grow in spiritual understanding of what Life is now, as God, we experience joy, freedom, health, strength, purpose and worth.
Death is not the destination of man. Life is.
Head toward Life, and prove that you have everything you need now to be healthy, happy and well.
“Time-tables of birth and death are so many conspiracies against manhood and womanhood. Except for the error of measuring and limiting all that is good and beautiful, man would enjoy more than threescore years and ten and still maintain his vigor, freshness, and promise. Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness”
