Neither money, property nor prestige will follow you to the afterlife, but you can take riches in the form of love, says Chris Tong in Transcending Life and Death in God. His spirituality series for MightyWords continues with this essay on connecting with God to get honest about your life and death.
CAN'T Take It With You:
The ultimate key to freedom and happiness in life, in death, and beyond death, is not a matter of manipulating mind, body, or spirit; such techniques have limited potential by themselves. Instead, the ultimate key is based on linking up with the Divine Reality which is always present, and which transcends life and death, and, through that connection, allowing the Divine Reality Itself to set us free (Figure 1).
is not about changing ourselves or our situation. It is about Awakening
altogether from the dream of being a separate, limited self — who
is living, who is dying, who is suffering, who is stuck on the wheel
of re-birth. We can make all kinds of improvements while we are asleep,
to our dream character or our dream circumstance, but none of those
changes in the dream represents the same radical freedom as does Waking
Up from the dream. The great revelation of Enlightenment is that,
in Reality, there are no separate selves; there is only One Being,
the Divine Being. Divine Enlightment is to Wake Up out of the dream
of mortality as the One Divine Being, in Whose Consciouness
the realms of life and death are being dreamed spontaneously.
