5 Powerful Benefits of Constantly Reminding Yourself That Anyone’s Death is Around the Corner

Published

on

Many Great Thinkers reveal that the best way to enjoy every moment of your life is to remind yourself that you might die any-f*?king-time.

I used to think this advice was stupid until I lost my beloved best friend: Fred Jesse.  Through his death, I realized that death is real and it can happen anytime. Fred didn’t know he will die. We had a drink the last time we met, and he was sure that we’ll meet again. It never occurred to both of us that his death was around the corner.

Fred died a few months later on a grizzly road accident. He was the first closest person I lost. When I heard the news of his death, it was hard to believe because I never thought that Fred might die anytime soon.

His death made me realize that no one knows when they will die because we can die at any moment.

Fred’s death made me to constantly think about my mortality, and I realized the following benefits of becoming aware that you, your friends or relatives might die at any moment.

  1. You Won’t Care about Other People’s Opinions

Will you care about other people’s thoughts if you know that you’ll be dead in a few weeks? I guess no. No matter how good or bad people think or talk about you, their opinions and thoughts won’t matter if you realize that you are going to die.

Furthermore, will you care about someone’s opinion about you if you realize that the person might die anytime soon? What if you worry about what a certain person thinks about you, and then s/he dies a week later. Will it be wrong to say that all your worry was time and energy wasted?

With this in mind, it is true that being aware of our impending deaths enables us to stop caring about people’s thoughts or opinions because they won’t matter when we die.

  1. You will Live in the Present Moment

Thinking about my death made me teach myself how to live in the present moment and stop worrying about a future which might never come. I realized that all I have is the present moment, and therefore, I must stop being anxious about an unguaranteed future. It also dawned on me that all of us could enjoy every moment if we realized that it might be the last.

‘Every moment is a once in a lifetime moment. And maybe it’s the last. Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock.’ – Jonas Salzebeger

  1. You will Ensure That You Maintain Good Relationships with Your Closest Friends and Relatives

Realizing that, you, your friends or relatives might die at any moment will force you to maintain a good relationship with them because you won’t want your loved ones to die with unsolved issues between you and them. For this reason, knowing that death is unpredictable will make you to always ensure that you are at peace with everyone you love.

We refuse to solve issues with our friends/relatives because we think they’ll live forever. We fail to realize that we might never get a chance to forgive them or ask them for forgiveness because death might grab any one of us anytime.

  1. You Will Quit Postponing

When you become death-conscious, you will quit postponing important things because you will realize that you might fail to live the next day to do these things.

You will stop postponing the day you’ll start traveling around the world, when you’ll send flowers to your parents, when you’ll build a business to sustain your kids when you die, when you’ll start doing what you love, when you’ll start saving money for your loved ones, and many other important things you always want to do but often postpone.

  1. You Will be Thankful

Death consciousness makes you thankful because you realize that life is precious and not everyone manages to live as long as you, your friends and relatives have lived.

When I think about death I always remember that most of my best friends are orphans. Therefore, I become thankful for the fact that my parents are still alive. Thinking about death also makes me thankful for the fact that my friends and sisters are alive because not everybody has all their family members/friends alive.

Do you remember the woman who lost her entire family in a car accident in 2016? I guess either all or some of your family members are alive. Therefore, stop fretting about trivial issues and be thankful you still have a chance to experience the physical universe with them. At least you have a shoulder to cry on. Some people don’t have.

Concluding Remarks

We always think we are immortal and for this reason, we take our precious lives and those of our friends or relatives for granted. We never appreciate their presence because we think they’ll live forever. Besides this, we love worrying about the future without thinking that we might fail to exist in it because life is short and death is unpredictable.

We don’t realize that we only have one chance to experience the beauty of the physical universe, and that life is too short to hold grudges, to worry, to postpone, to hate, to care about people’s opinions, and to do what we hate.

‘When we realize the shortness of life, we begin to see the importance of making every moment count.’ – Dillion Burroughs: American Author.

Five Things That Make Your Belief in God Useless

Published

on

N/B – I use the term, ‘God,’ and I also use the terms, ‘his’ and ‘him’ to refer to God, because they are the most common terms used in reference to The Creator/Infinite Intelligence/Source Energy

 

Today, many people claim that they believe in this powerful spirit we call God. However, a close observation on how these folks live shows that their belief in God is useless.

Are you a believer? Today I will enlighten you by providing you with five things that make your belief in God useless.

  1. Excessively Worrying About Your Problems

It’s useless to believe in God and still worry about your problems excessively. Believing in God and still worrying shows that your faith in The Creator is weak.

If you believe in God you must deeply know that this powerful loving Spirit is willing and has the ability to solve your problems when requested to do so.

  1. Selfishness

You only get into alignment with The Creator’s power when you become a giver because he designed life to thrive through giving. Plants give us oxygen and food, animals give plants carbon-dioxide, the sun gives us energy, and the list of giving is endless. No matter how hard you pray, praise, and believe in God, you will suffer if you are a selfish person: people will hate you, and you will never be happy or satisfied. For this reason, your belief in God will be useless.

  1. You Have not Aligned with his Power

Your belief in God is useless if you are not connected with him. Studying spirituality and ancient books has made me realize that there is a way you can connect with Infinite Intelligence/God.

This connection changes your life instantly because it enables you to do magnificent things as The Creator starts expressing himself through you. It is believed that the first men and women were highly intelligent and they could build magnificent buildings such as the pyramids because they were connected with God’s power.

For this reason, make your belief in The Creator useful by aligning with his power because regardless of how hard you pray, trust, or praise God, he will only be able to work with you if you are connected with his power.

  1. You don’t Understand how The Creator works

There is a way The Creator works, and you can know it through studying the universe and nature. Your belief in God is useless if you don’t understand how The Creator works because you won’t know how to relate to him or fall in alignment with his infinite power.

Many spiritual teachers claim that your prayers can only work when you understand The Creator because you will know how to approach ‘him.’ Besides this, they teach that you can only have strong faith in The Creator if you know how he works.

Most of us believe in God just because we were told to do so. We have never taken our time to study how God works, and for this reason, we never truly believe in him hence making our prayers ineffective.

  1. You Fear Going Broke

We mostly fear going broke because we don’t know how we’ll survive when we are broke. If you believe in God and you fear going broke, your belief is useless because you don’t trust that The Creator will take care of you when you have nothing. A true believer never fears going broke because he knows that his ‘Loving Father’ will provide for him when he’s broke

Conclusion

Let’s be real folks, most of us claim to believe in God but our actions betray us. We believe in something we don’t really know about, and for this reason, we are always unsure of our relationship with God.

To truly believe in God you must seek to know how he works so that you fully know him. It’s easy to create a relationship with someone when you know him.

The Biggest Lie Ever: Money is the End-Goal

Published

on

Today, we’ve been made to believe that money is the end-goal because it can buy happiness and comfort. For this reason, people are working in jobs they hate, and some folks will do anything – even when it hurts their physical and mental health – to get money. But is money really the end-goal? Is it important than everything else? Let’s find out.

Ancient man never needed money because he knew that everything he wanted was provided by the universe for free. If he needed water, he fetched it from rivers, and if he needed food, he either plucked fruits from trees or hunted animals. After eating and drinking his fill, ancient man spent his day exploring the world, playing games, dancing, and praying. He never spent his day worrying about money, and for this reason, he had a beautiful life.

However, modern man is depressed because he has made money his end goal. He spends all his day slaving in a job for money, and he uses his free hours to worry about money, which he spends on things he doesn’t really need. Modern man fails to realize that even though money is important, it’s not the end goal.

If you make money your end-goal, you’ll always be depressed. Besides this, you might fail to get it because you’ll avoid working on the factors that attract money. However, if you focus on building your inner world/skills and stop stressing about money, you’ll attract it.

For instance, if you learn how to work hard, persist, develop discipline, and use your mind to attract whatever you want, you will attract money easily. Furthermore, if you focus on building exceptional skills, people will pay you lots of money for them.

However, you’ll die poor and miserable if you make money your end goal because you’ll be moving from one career to another hoping to make more money. You’ll always focus on the fastest ways to get money, and you’ll avoid taking your time and effort to find the slow but sure ways of getting money.  Besides this, you’ll make fake friends because you’ll use money as the determinant of whether someone can be your friend or not, and you’ll end up in a miserable relationship because you’ll choose your partner based on how much he or she earns.

The ultimate goal of life is not making money.  The primary goal of life is to strengthen our connection with Infinite Intelligence/God, build our inner lives, and understand the world. Ancient man built pyramids, performed miracles, understood the language of the stars, and did many things we can’t do today because he never made money the end-goal. He could see the future, talk to the dead, and perform white magic because he mainly focused on tapping into God’s intelligence and connecting with Mother Earth. Besides ancient man, the people who made the greatest discoveries never made money the end-goal. Instead, they focused on creating inventions that could help the world.

Don’t misunderstand me, I love money and I want more of it in my life because money will enable me to explore the world, buy ten million books, take care of extinct animals, and help the poor. However, money isn’t my end goal, and I don’t use it to determine who to make friends with. Money is just a tool for me. My primary goal is to establish a connection with Infinite Intelligence and fall into alignment with the Natural Law because I believe by doing so, I will live my life in a better dimension.

Which do you believe is a good goal? Establishing your connection with universal intelligence and downloading all the wisdom necessary for understanding the world and getting whatever you want, or becoming as rich as Rockefeller?

Anyway, money is the biggest lie ever because it has taken all our focus and prevented us from focusing on knowing who we really are, and what we can do. Maybe we can shapeshift, understand animal language, fly, and communicate directly with God/Universal Intelligence (Like Moses), but we fail to do so because we focus on becoming richer than our friends and neighbours. Silly Us. We are Fucked.
