Are You the Person You'd Like to Spend Eternity With?

Share it Please
Every Easter I take a moment to pause and think about what I am taking with me to the next life. If what goes with me is my consciousness, then have I stripped away as much pettiness from my mentality? Have forgiven and loved as much as this current form can?

Because, if I am accompanying myself to the next world, then this would be a good time to become the kind of person I would like to spend eternity with.

In his Easter Message, our Founder, Dr. Holmes said:

“I often wonder just what would happen to us if this were a firm conviction in our minds. Would we not be more tolerant of each other's mistakes? Would we not be more forgiving? And would we not all come to realize that this life, after all, is but a temporary thing in a vast and eternal expansion of the soul? What would be your reaction and mine if we knew the only thing we could take with us when we leave this world would be that which we really are? Would not our reactions be more kind and gentle? Would not our very possessions seem of less value? And should we not come finally to realize that the only things that are really worthwhile are those things which cannot change?” 

Happy Easter,

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
