The End Is NOT “The” End, Guaranteed

Have you ever thought about your own future?  Of course you have.

Have you ever noticed that most “religions” talk about a “Good” place, and a “Bad” place that each of us will go to, after “death”.   (…why do they call it death, when, either way, they say, you’ll live on?)

I’m contemplating how to say ONE thing (like…Love is the answer to every question…) … that would get people to seriously consider their own outlook on life…and “death”… and FUTURE.  What came up?   Never mind what Gods’ name is….nevermind what location, exactly, you will be going to.  It would seem that living a life based on caring and helpfulness would be better than ALL the other alternatives!   …then everybody comes out ahead.  Remember…the one belief, that most people have about life after …”passing”… it’s a continuation.

Well, if you’re not sure that Jesus, or Budda, or others, were on to something, THINK ABOUT THIS… “The End” IS NOT “THE” END!  Actually, there is NO end!   ….Now what?

(Another message from (a quite opinionated person, as a result of being …) a “near” death survivor.)

Trump Wins, and How We Know It

OK.  Maybe you’ve heard the one about a guy saying that the Iran hostages would be held 444 days, weeks after they were taken….it WAS 444 days.

Then there’s the one about a guy telling friends that he would die when he was 34, in the month of April or May, when he would have a child 3 1/2-5 years old (not 3, not 4, three and a half).  No, he didn’t die….but his only child was paralyzed…the operation planned in April, done in May, resulting in paralysis!  He was 34 years old.  She was one week away from 3 1/2!

This same fella claimed to have chosen correctly concerning every Presidential election for over 40 years, making every choice at least six months ahead.  He has had witnesses to proclamations, such as, Reagan and Clinton having second terms…both times it was before they were elected the first time!!  The same with Bush, only he came with a caveat….”we will regret it!”.

Today’s Proclamation……Trump will win the election.  It’s not much of a call at this point….the republicans are stepping up their evil ways, now, blocking a legitimate candidate for the Supreme Court, etc, etc, etc..  Nevermind the country’s business that NEEDS done.  THIS IS WHAT MADE TRUMP POSSIBLE!  IDIOTS! 

 

 

 

Do I HAVE TO Do Good, Too?

Please remember, this series contains reports of the experiences of a person who has had a so-called “near death experience”.   Many, many of the things “seen/discovered” during that time go against even his own beliefs!  These are simply the reports (“to the whole world”) that were  promised (to Someone you don’t lie to)!!  Bear with me….

Many folks believe that “by Grace Ye are Saved, not by Works” means that Grace is all that’s required in order to receive  “the good” afterlife.  A person could have done any ole thing they want to, for a lifetime, as long as they BELIEVE.  Then again, out of the other side of their mouths they speak of a “Judgment Day”…..?  You know, JUDGMENT DAY!  It’s where your GOODNESS is counted up….to see if you qualify for the Good Treatment.  Then there’s this, “Faith without works is dead”.  Which one is true?

What does the “near” death experience tell us?

That “life review” experienced during the…death and return….was DEADLY SERIOUS.  Every lie was the biggest lie ever told!  Every deceit WAS a lie.  Every…taking advantage…was taking advantage against YOURSELF.  Naturally it is!  We are all “one”.  Don’t ask for an explanation…..there are no words….BIG enough!  But it’s true, from my understanding.  As for “by Grace”…..this is hard to put into words…words alone leave so many misunderstandings in their wake.

When suddenly in “the waiting place”, it was obvious that this condition COULD go on for EVER….since you’re apart from time.  Just as the fear was about to take over, the realization came that all one needs do is call The Saviors name, and believe the offer of salvation, as fact.

Putting these two experiences together…..as “evidence”…..

Knowing that every lie is the biggest lie ever told, and every hurting thing comes back to hurt YOU (magnified) are enough reasons to begin giving up those things completely.  Then comes peace…NOT necessarily an easy life, but peace, nevertheless.

If a person believes, they want to understand.  When that person UNDERSTANDS, they will WANT TO do good (to/for/with others).  If NOT……… Well, if they don’t measure up, they won’t get in.  Remember, it isn’t…bliss/”heaven” …if the riff-raff gets in.

(You don’t do good for “brownie points”.  Those acts likely don’t even count!  Maybe…..in secret is best…..)

You Want Justice…..Whose Justice?

What is the best way for a “near death” survivor to suggest, to understand justice?  Always take the “other side” of a subject, first.

(I just thought of something…it’s been decades, and I’m still correlating “the experience”…)  By doing this there would BE NO surprise, at the “life review”, upon learning that, during the review, YOU ALSO suffer, exactly as that “other guy” you’re dealing with “suffers”!!  If you always take/look at the “other side” first, desiring JUSTICE, BOTH sides can be proud, not…down…times two!

Example?  Who hasn’t called someone “stupid” during childhood?  OK.  Now, at the life review, you may EXPECT a boot to the head for calling them stupid.  So what, it’s just another boot to the head.  Only THIS time it includes a bonus!  You get to FEEL what THEY felt at that moment!  Maybe for a VEEEEERRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY long time.  Oh joy!  (Once again, we’ve done it to ourselves………(!))  You better hope that what you did to them wasn’t something like………(intentional) burning, or……harming a loved one.  ….Every single act (AND thought)!!  IEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

How to Stop the Escalation

Who hasn’t run into a situation where there are several people having a conversation.  They may be talking about…….politics, or how to raise children, or some such.The conversation becomes “heated”, verging on argument.  Most folks that find themselves in this position have come to the point where, knowing minds probably won’t be changed, today, they work on winding down the situation, agreeing to disagree (and, probably go home and apply a little of what they heard!).  What is the alternative?

With  topics that mean so much to a person, such as these, it is awful easy to go too far.  First, it becomes yelling.  Throw in a couple belly bumps.  Add a push, here and there.  What’s next?  Yep, somebody swings.  One swings, so the other takes a swing.  Throw in a bystander, or two, and we have a party, of the heinous variety.  Maybe, somebody dies.  So somebody else, from the opposing faction, has to die, right?  Where does this end?  DOES this end?

All this was able to be “easily” avoided by just winding down the situation, each person still feeling correct, but “living” with it, accepting things as they are, for now, but working for change.  Instead of focusing on who had received the last beating, or insult, or even death, there needs to be an agreement that the only way to stop this “thing” is to just STOP NOW.  It seems it’s the only way to prevent an (inevitable?) escalation, when discord begins.  If it NOW works for conversation, it can be made to apply to WAR!  If no one cares about the lives saved, think about the MONEY SAVED!  Everyones’ standard of living goes up, if there’s no war.  Hello?

Don’t Forget Me………….

The same old woman who told me she, “went to bed 49 (years old) and woke up 60”, in later years, said, “Don’t forget me.”, which was understood to mean, after she passes from this life.  With only half a life lived, it seemed odd to hear someone older say such a thing.  She had always been such a strong, proper woman, and here was this…emotion.

How do you explain to someone that you couldn’t POSSIBLY forget them, and, having common beliefs, it should be only a temporary parting?  At that moment, it was obvious that, even folks “ready” for the end of this life, are….apprehensive, even scared!  That has got to be…….an annoyance.

What if…….something “bad” happens to someone else, and, even though a person IS willing to help, maybe they don’t help because of some perceived threat of the end of their existence. Yeah…it’s like this…how many people are willing to take a homeless person….for supper (much less home)?  One percent of us?  Less?  There must be so very many situations with similar “concerns”.

Thankfully, most death “survivors” have no such dilemma. These individuals tend to think more like, what is the worst that could happen?   ……………………..Staying down here until you’re 110 years old would seem to make sense, as the worst, from that perspective.

Don’t forget me.

To begin with….do you know….say….every job your father has ever held, EVER.  How about….how long your grandfather held the job he had when your (parent) was born?  OK, try this, your great-grandfathers’ middle name?  Presumably this means you won’t know HIS fathers’ middle name either, huh?  Most people won’t.  One more….name any five of the laborers who helped build the Egyptian pyramids.  The point?  We will all be forgotten, in this life, it’s just a matter of how long it takes.  So….it’s certainly not worth worrying about.

From a death survivors’ point of view, most of the “stuff” we do is a waste.  When it comes to…how do I say this….big…to-do’s, like, death processions, and talking, in public, extra nice about the deceased…..it’s a grand WASTE.  That person is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO far away from here, AND, (whether they know it’s being done, or not) THEY DON’T CARE, one billionth of an iota…whatever that is.  Justice WILL happen, as they now have seen, and  life was just a wisp from a forgotten dream.  It wouldn’t be Heaven, if you’re watching what’s going on “down here”.  Right?  Am I right?

Don’t forget me?  Forget it!  We’ll meet again, in what seems to be mere moments.

The Truth about Lies…….Huh?

We all know about lies.  Lies are untruths that make you look like an idiot, when they’re discovered.  After that, it’s likely fewer people want to talk to you….what’s the point, what you’re saying is probably a lie!

There are many, situations where a  strategically placed lie…just makes life easier. They aren’t usually malicious.  Usually it’s just a little white lie that “saves” the day/moment.

Having had a death experience, this is what I have to report to you.  It’s a report of what I saw, and was told (about lies, in this case), not MY, personal mandate to civilized life all over the universe…..

Here it is…A HUGE lie is an abomination to God, and everyone that loves His ways.  Who’ll give me an “AMEN”!  A little lie is, then, of course…….an abomination to God, and everyone that loves His ways!!  Big lie, little lie, they are EXACTLY the same.

Liars are looking to buy an eternity of being lied to, it appears.  It’s a shame.  The thing is, was it really necessary to lie, every one of those times?  Now, think about this, then answer…..from what I’ve seen, once you are finished  living, and have “gone on”, life seems to have been very, very short…maybe just moments.  It has been suggested that, in a place that has NO TIME, life resembles ten minutes.

So the question becomes, do you think you could go 10 minutes without lying, in order to be acceptable in Heaven?  The alternative may be, being spit out like a mouthful of sewage, thrown out, into……….

Thoughts Equal Actions

As unfair as it seems to be, in the dreaded life review it was discovered that, thoughts ARE EQUAL to actions!  Oh boy, now we’re in trouble!

How can that be “fair”?  We can’t even pin down where thoughts come from!!  Maybe not, but, man, is it a great indicator of what we really believe!  Because we want to survive in good stead after this life is over, we make the decision to “do good”, when we “can”.  (Is this the answer your boss at work wants to hear?  Then, why would it work in Heaven??)

Love is the key, once again.   Never mind that you’re trying to “earn” your way to a good afterlife…those “earnings” don’t even count, if done for “points”!  Was a certain decision made in order to score points with “Mr. Big”, or because you can minimize suffering?  Is it for points, or because that could be YOUR child, sister, or brother?  Next time it could be YOU suffering.

While the final decision is being made, as to where we “go” after death, it WOULD be us suffering, from a lack of love…….in our own thoughts AND actions.  Remember, the answer WE gave, is the answer we’ll GET.  Perfect justice, baby!
