In the midst of regular duties, you are always afraid of death as if it is monstrous. Death is nothing but the end of your life. The eternal spirit leaves and takes shelter in another body. In this melee, don’t spoil the grandeur of your life, of course, maintaining the spirituality as far as possible. Irrespective of your age, you must owe everything to God, and then you will not bother about any sequence related to your life and death. Throughout the day, you think about various aspects of life. Those thoughts are related to profession and career; some others are about social. You are the only person, who can control these thoughts. No one else can do the same for you. Parents, teachers, good friends, and spiritual teachers can guide you to show the right direction, but they cannot force thoughts not to visit you. Now, if you have the ability to dig out more useful and prolific ideas in your life no matter whatever your chronological age is, you are creating a paradise. Whatever work you perform you remember God, you will get an excellent and illuminating experience. It is nothing less than an experience of heaven. Contrary to all these activities, when you attract unproductive and wishful thinking and most of the time you feel jealous of other prosperities, you create the experience of hell here only. Apparently, you may feel joyous because on your wishful thinking, by any chance, if someone who is known to you falls into problems, but it shows that you damage the real purpose of existence in life. The primary purpose of life is to love others unconditionally as far as possible. You have to extend love not only to family members but also to your neighbors, and the people come into contact every day. In short, who is responsible for creating the experience of hell and heaven in your life?
If you create worries, anxieties, fear, and unproductive issues, you compel to have a disturbed and ‘agitated’ mind. You are the torturing mind with ugly, impure and destructive thoughts. You won’t be in a position to receive the light of angels who are the spirits sent from heaven time to time to teach human beings to embrace the right kind of life. When the beauty, light, and spirituality of the heart come to the force, and you try to reveal and manifest them in the aspiring world, then you feel that you stay in heaven. One is not supposed to wait for his death and then to find hell or heaven. A general perception always pervades us that after death, God either punishes us by sending to hell or with a friendly face invites us to the spirit world. There is nothing like that. God never punishes us because we all are His beloved children. Why will He torture us? Based on your various deeds, thoughts, and your services to other human beings, you accumulate either joy or sorrow and time to time you to experience the feelings of the same on this earth only. After your death, if the accumulations of evil deeds are more; you will be sent back to the third dimension world again as your soul gets dirty with dust which needs to be purified. And you will have to perform the worldly life again. If you surrender the fruits of all your activities, accomplishment, accolade, and also pains and sorrow to Him and don’t curse on your ability, you will always remain in heaven in this very life. Each time, you think positive, you engage yourself in any helpful service, extend your cooperation to others, when they are clueless, and you create the path of a journey to heaven. When we are not in a position to experience the infinite, the immortal and the eternal, we take it granted that the opposite, the finite is hell. The bondage we face every day causing of sufferings, we have to consider the same as a passing phase like an overcast sky with a dark cloud. No sooner, the cloud disappears, the bright sun appears, and it will provide you light. The sequence of life runs in this fashion. The feeling of heaven and hell will always be there, but it all depends on you how you want to increase or decrease your accumulation of good or bad deeds. Because of your fear, doubts, negative behavior, anxieties limitations, lack of knowledge and skills, the bright inner sun off your good deeds is covered. You remain confined in the dark tunnel of ignorance and sitting in that tunnel created by you only, you feel dejected and experience the life as hell. But if you are steadfast in your determination, you can eliminate all the above elements of failure which will make the inner sun shine brightly. We are all God’s creation, and He loves us without any discrimination. By His blessings, there is no hell; there is only light. But you have to ascertain the truth, implement the same in your life taking various actions, and then you can visualize the view of life. If the truth about your negligence on all fronts comes out, then you invite the pain only, and avoidance of hell is not possible.
The truth is everywhere; you have to justify the same in the proper way. Only then, you will understand the true meaning of your existence. What is heaven? It is infinite light, peace, and bliss. When you sit for meditation or do prayers, you seek heaven. When your mind is calm, it provides you tranquility; your heart becomes all giving, and you attach to divine reality. Heaven is not a designated place. It is an inbuilt concept of consciousness. When you free your mind from the thoughts of improper activities and ignorance, you get the first-hand experience of heaven.
The aim of life is the conscious realization of God. All of us have an unconscious awareness of God. When you pray religiously and continuously as a seeker of God’s blessings, you increase your consciousness. At that time, you feel God’s presence everywhere. You can then fight off the evil forces which cloud your constructive thoughts and distract your attention from God’s presence and blessings. In the absence of God’s presence, you will have a hawking journey between earth and heaven. You have to transform earth into the sky, into a place of joy, solace, and bliss. The conception of heaven is something pure, sound and delightful and at the same time, immortal. But you must recognize the fact what that immortal means to us? What do you understand about the fact of transforming earth into heaven? It is the imperfect, negative and obstructive and obscure that exist within us will be turned into perfect and illuminating and provides enlightenment. So, on this earth itself, you can select the transformation of your life either as heaven or as hell. You are only responsible for this particular selection. So, choose accordingly.
