Die to the World
We must die to the world in order to find eternal life.
Give up the chase of the material world, give up the sin, give up the purposelessness, the pointless pursuits which most are completely focused on. Be the one that gives up the world to find everything.
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven
- Mark 10:25
We must deny the world, deny the things that we think bring happiness and pleasure, only to find that which actually gives us everlasting joy and bliss - found in God.
Furthermore, we must die to ourselves. We must take up the Cross and follow Christ Himself to find a life that is forever. Your soul does not die. It will carry on after your physical death. Do that which is of the highest vibrational possibility of a human being: to Love - everyday of your life, and you will start to understand that you either go up or you go down after your death.
Heaven or Hell.
The fact is that there is nothing that this world can offer you that is True - the only Truth is found in Love, and while we can find this reality “in” a material world, we are talking about levels beyond the material that we cannot tangibly ponder.
So, it is of your benefit to die everyday to the world - to understand that the only things that truly matter are your loved ones and being a light in this world.
All else is water under the bridge, dust in the wind.
The only thing that is forever is your soul.
So - start working on that.
All else is vanity.
All else fades away.
But, you do not. The real you is forever.
Heaven is at hand. Act like it.
