There are very few things that you may take into the afterlife

There is so much more to this life than money, jobs, homes and personal luxuries. People focus so much on what they have and what they want that they lose sight of God’s INTENTION for your life.

You were not asked to come to earth to be millionaires and possess lavish wealth. You came here to grow as an individual and to tirelessly help others. Look around and take count of what you possess and speak about how this item or these possessions improve the spirituality of humanity.

You may feel more comfortable living in a large home near a waterfront but does this help relieve human suffering? No, at least not for anyone but you.

Imagine we are sitting around a camp fire. At this fire are your loved ones who have passed, your spirit guides, your angels and God. If WE all set about making a list of necessary items to supply the world with, what would be on that list? What do you possess that benefits all of mankind? Not much.

WE need to start thinking in terms of benefitting  all others when we write that list. World peace, an end to famine, the reversal of global warming, the cessation of strip mining, stopping the decimation of worldwide forests and ecosystems, curing cancer and diabetes…this list may go on for a long time. 

The focus of our human lives has to reflect why we came here in the first place. What did we decide, with the help of God, that we would accomplish in our time here on earth? Does our need for material success fit with this divine plan? Not likely, unless we give a large portion of our income to charity. We may donate to finding the cure for cancer or an alterative for fossil fuels. This would be an accomplishment in and of itself. However, we desire material wealth for a variety of other reasons.

If you take time, right now, to reexamine your goals, think of this one quote, “There are few things that you may take into the afterlife.” Mahah Win spoke this to me recently and it struck me fairly hard. I have printed it out and sits on my desk at work where I may see it a hundred times a day for five days a week.

Reexamine what it is that you want from your time here. As you write that list remember that it was written with the help of our God. What had the two of you decided you would accomplish when you came here for this life?

Go with God,
