I was thinking about this the other day. What can you take with you when you die? The old adage of "You can't take it with you" is true - and has been tested and proven every time someone has passed on. I found there are three things you CAN take with you when you go to the next place.
With each on of these there is a flip side. You can have relationships that bring you closer to positive spirituality or have destructive relationships that inflict harm to your spiritual welfare. You can fill you head with knowledge that will edify others or you can learn about horrible things that have no practical application. You can also make choices that lead you to a life of service, charity and hope or you can choose to be in despair, selfishness and cruelty. You decide what you bring with you. You should always be mindful of what is in your spirit when you cross to the other side. Has your life been a life of hedonistic frenzy - going from one stimulation to the next, stepping on people to get there and entrusting your emotional welfare in things? Or have you spent your life force in the service of other people, most of whom you do not know? Do you watch movies that are filled with negative energy or endear yourself to material that is spiritually uplifting and sharable? Are the people you 'hang with' prompt you to break the law, treat others with cruelty or do you choose people in your life that treat people as treasures and keep their word?
It is up to you. There are few excuses when you enter into the great beyond and your relationships, knowledge and choices conflict with the positive forces there. Conversely, How great is your joy when you meet others that are like you in making positive decisions!
