…but.

I’m at the Life Review.  (You’ll get your chance.)  In mere MOMENTS, every single act, and thought I EVER did and had was all around me, as if happening for the first time!  And yet, the entire thing happened so FAST, it was over before my brain could register it.  But I remembered it all!

As if that wasn’t strange enough, I saw things as if I was on the receiving end of things I had said and done.  To me it seemed like the effects were amplified somewhat.  It’s that or…some of the things I had said…cut to the bone?  Or were those “recipients” just (too) “sensative”?  …No, that was not the answer.

I would come to a place, in this…thought stealing review, that I would feel I needed to…defend my actions.  Over and over I would begin by saying, “yeah, but”…and that would be the end of the moment, moving on to the next.  After this had occured several times, I realized that my “yeah, but” “explanation” carried no weight.  It wasn’t that it was a “lie”, more like…you should have known better, AND WOULD HAVE, if truly coming from a place of love!

There it is…the “afterlife’s” standards for admission, and now you know, when your turn comes, that “but.” is always the end of the sentence.

 

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.

What, Again, is Life About?

A lot of folks seem to think, as I once did, that life is a test.  That may be the wrong way to look at it.

Opportunity, that is what life is.  OK, it’s an opportunity….for what?  Is it just an opportunity for God to get all bug-eyed, watching us flounder, counting each transgression (like Scrooge would count his pence), waiting for the day of the big filet?  Eh?

Who’s heard of, “you can’t earn your way to Heaven”, you?  It’s because there’s…”purchasing” involved, where “a savings account”  is a more appropriate description…..less entitlement, more…seeking….and “saving”….. all things good, and proper, with Love…and, therefore, the approval of the powers that be, besides a just reward.  We need to be good/do good because we want to, not because it “pays”.  That kind of “pay” does not convert to Heavens currency!

Remember the story, something about, burning off the chaff from a harvest….  I’m guessing that is more than a fair description.  God hates sin, right?  Then why would He want to look at it?!  Burn it off, look at what’s left.  For some folks, that doesn’t leave much.  It would not be cool for God to ask for his magnifying glass, to see what’s left over from the burn, when looking me over, I know that much.

For some, God will look at the pile…it’s so big….and bright (because of the blazing light, coming from Him, reflecting off the “gold” (“savings”) pile).  Yes, that is what I want…..  A big smile on the face of the Almighty.

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!

Is Life Just “a Test”?

Life is not test. For years it seemed like it was.  What the death experience showed was that we can’t “earn” our way to Heaven.

Like an investor who sees an opportunity that he missed, who says he would have done this, or would have done that, if he’d have been there……it needs to be SEEN what he would have done!  Are we choosing to be helpful and loving (simply because it’s the right thing to do), or do we fall short, doing things for show, or maybe “brownie points”?  After all, this is Heaven we’re talking about.  If the riff raff gets in, heaven ceases to be Heaven.

Everyone claims to love justice, but do they treat people justly? Everyone would like to think they love “love”, and are loving…….this life is where that can be shown to be true.

On the playground, the trouble-making kid thinks that all the playground monitors are focused on catching a trouble-maker. The rest of the kids know the monitors are there to keep kids safe, and aren’t there for the sole purpose of watching a, so-called, trouble-maker.  It’s all a matter of how you look at it.  Life is not a test. This is…….the opportunity of a lifetime.

Remember, it’s not that “God” is waiting for us to falter, so He can kick us when we’re down (forever).  Perfect and Simple justice would dictate that we get the opportunity to kick ourselves!

The Poor Have it MADE?

Perhaps you have read the part that describes how life is only ten minutes long.  What could you “put up with”, for ten minutes, knowing that a blissful existence is the reward for success DURING those ten minutes.  Even being “poor”, which pays better, so to speak, would be survivable!

There are people who have very little use for so-called “wealth”.  (I know one particularly well.)

It’s funny (?) that, no matter how much money people make, it’s the people above them that are rich……hmmmm. They are looking in the wrong direction!  If we can’t look to the poor for that comparison, at least  look at the “average” poor…the WORLD average!  Now who’s “rich” (monetarily speaking)?

Another way to look at it…the tough way…the Just way….add up the GDP of the entire planet, and divide by the number of people!  THAT is how it’s done in Heaven….and that should be how we do it.  (We’d have to go more by “living conditions” than actual dollars…unless we levelled the playing field to start with….)  Looking at it that way, maybe we ourselves aren’t doing so bad, eh?

Really, the poor have it made, right.  Yes, and here’s why….

A kid who has NOTHING, not even shoes, gets GIVEN a ball.  It’s great!  It’s like….a miracle!  Now imagine  that kid is….crowned king of the world.  He controls everything.  He OWNS everything.  How blissful would that kid be, now?  Now, multiply that times 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000.  Now there’s a heavenly reward!  All for being poor (and still grateful), for ten minutes!

On the other hand, there’s the guy who had everything, well off.  He says we’ll always have the poor and hungry, but I really deserve another vacation.  He goes to the afterlife, and expects this best life to be deserving of continuation  (conditions, treatment, the works).  It doesn’t seem fair, once again, but this guy has had his.  You know, that kind of person that always puts themselves first, and, well…. we don’t like their kind, up Here.

Lastly, it all goes back to life being really only, like, 10 minutes long  (once we’re IN eternity, that’s what it will seem like).  With that in mind (always)…..what do you think most people would choose?

Which Religion is the RIGHT Religion?

This question has been pondered at one time or another, by most folks searching for the “truth”.   After all, who wants to have been serving the wrong purpose, all their lives?  (Not to mention that, having made such a big “mistake”, you’ll look like an idiot, when you’re standing before God!)  The Kid with a thousand questions was no different.

The answer  was rather surprising, and completely unexpected.   The answer is…….   No religion is the right religion.  Of all the religions in the world, NONE, ZERO are “just right”!  Many of them have the right idea, but have one, or more, fairly major flaws.   In this case, there were no names given, as to which is the “best/most correct/worthy”.

Flaws?  The biggest problem with religion is thinking that our own is the ONLY way to get to heaven!  This often leads to arguments, fights, and even wars.  It’s CRAZY!!  Assuming we can all agree that “love”, for everyone, in every situation, is the path to a blissful afterlife, why are believers driven APART, when it should draw us together!!?  I don’t get it……

As far as lifestyle goes, way too much importance, time, and, especially, money is wasted on buildings.  What can we say, standing before God, accounting for our actions, “but, we had such a nice building.”?!   Buildings, and “stuff”…like fancy clothes bought to wear to that building are a waste of resources.  Did people like Jesus, need a building, or fancy duds?  There are people starving to death!  Obviously, no one understands that…we are ALL ONE!  That person dying of starvation is your mom, dad, brother, or sister!  You might just as well kill them outright, and spare them some suffering!!  ……..I can’t talk about this more, now.  It’s tearing my guts out!

So, what makes a religion “worthy”?  You may have guessed, it’s…Love.  Not talking about it, not debating it…doing it.

How can there ever be lasting peace?

Where there is love and true justice, peace comes easy.

Think about the person you love the most in the whole world (maybe that is yourself). THAT is love, and everyone should be treated as if they ARE that favorite person. Does that seem not enough? Then treat everyone as if they are God.

As far as justice is concerned….good luck getting THAT in life!  But after life, justice is absolute…AB-SO-fricking-LUTE!!  It’s, also, PERFECT.  Explain perfect?  Whatever a person does to another person, they may as well be doing it to themselves!  The rolls are reversed, where there is perfect justice.  Example?  I scream at you, “You are so stupid, and I can prove it!”  Well, I just signed up to be screamed at, probably for eternity, and, all the while, during that time, realizing just exactly how stupid I truly was to have gotten myself here/there, by treating someone else so lousy!!  Perfect Justice.

So……you want peace, treat “yourself” (everyone!) well!
