ACCEPTING GOD'S GIFT OF LIFE
APPRECIATING THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF LIFE
Although our blessed, sweet Lord is all abundant and can create whatever He so desires, repeatedly, whenever He wants, we must still treat life as a beautiful and precious gift. Life is not to be wasted or abused, even if we know that God and Soul exist beyond this little lifetime, we must learn to treat life as a precious gift and to live it with care, respect, and love.
Spiritual knowledge of God and Soul is given to enhance our experience of life, to help us live less selfishly, to help us overcome the fear of life and death, and it is not an excuse to be wasteful, uncaring, selfish, and egotistical.
We must learn to live "God's play of life" and to be helpful, caring, supportive, loving and wise, so that we may be of service and benefit to the health, welfare, and happiness of all.
OVERCOMING ATHEISM and vice
Some are born with God and get off to a good start. They have good karma that they have earned in previous live. We marvel at their health, their gifts, their grace, their abilities and their light. To fall foul of jealousy in their presence shows that we must overcome this vice.
For others, it can take a long time to overcome atheism, negative karma, and all those unpleasant negative states (vicious) of heart and mind that keep us locked the darkness and misery of the fallen state.
It takes as long as it takes for us to begin to realize and perceive the spiritual dimension to life. We have much to learn, we need to overcome those seven primary deadly sins, realize soul and God, and purify our life so that we too can experience successful spiritual living - attaining all good qualities and realizing God.
Some say that life begins at 40. I firmly believe that life begins when we have overcome our spiritual ignorance and really begin to experience the sweetness, goodness, and purity of our soul, God, and the spiritual lifestyle.
Studying this work will help us realize how to do this.
ACCEPTANCE AND THANKSGIVING
What is their to be thankful for when we are in the darkness and misery of spiritual ignorance, living out of the "suitcase" of our conditioned personality, fearing and hating both life and death, full of atheism, selfish egotism, negative karma, and the poisonous experiences of vice?
It does not take long for the sincere seeker to find the good path. This work will assist you to find it and learn how to walk it. With a little daily study and practice we can understand and overcome all our atheism, doubt, negative karma, and vice. The entirety of this work has that one aim in heart and mind - to guide our soul to God Realization, happiness and successful spiritual living.
Accepting God's gift of life requires the soul to have gained freedom from the prison of atheism, selfish egotism, and vice, and thus to be in a position of heart and mind to actually feel thanksgiving to God. This takes time for the acceptance and thanksgiving must be genuine. We can start now by simply saying "hello" and "thanks" to God for the gift of life, knowing that we are on the good path, and that eventually we will be free from ignorance and vice.
To know that God's gift of the soul is an extensive gift that spans much more than one lifetime is a golden key to spiritual understanding. Of course, when we are unhappy and depressed, then the idea of another life may seem like an act of cruelty, but when we are happy then it seems naturally appealing.
As we become more intimate with God, then we naturally begin to feel God's peace and happiness, and God's good qualities begin to become are own. God "downloads" - transfers and infuses - these good qualities into our soul, banishing darkness and vice, and enriching our experiences.
As we become more intimate with God, establishing a good relationship with God, then we begin to experience and perceive "small signs", gifts from God that begin to fill our life.
These signs show that we are doing well and are truly on "the good path" of successful spiritual living.
When we really begin to realize God, then we naturally begin to accept God's great gift of life and soul, and then our thanksgiving becomes a natural part of our life.
