“Our material things will not follow us to the other side so instead of striving to obtain all the best things, strive to be the best you, because when we walk in grace, we gain treasures in spirit, that will follow us forever.”
The energy spent on trying to become something through our things, is energy wasted and worth nothing in spirit; but the time and energy we spend striving to walk in the footsteps of the Divine, through actions of love, kindness, generosity and truth, allows us to store up our treasures in heaven to have eternally.
When we walk in our spirit physically, we are planning our future spiritually; and our actions will determine whether we receive a key to our storage of blessings, or a key for our return, to right the wrongs of our actions.
~ WOW ~
Sound advice for those who want peace in their lives 🙂
Thank you so much fred! this is classroom so we gain our treasures and rewards when we return home kind of like a report card.! Have a great weekend.
Thanks WOW. And you as well!
I was just thinking of one that I used to know who has grown old and is still acquiring and protecting possessions. I think the problem here is that he doesn’t know that an alternative exists. And he would not listen to the alternative because he is too invested in hanging on to the physical. This is the plight of man. All this suffering…but mostly we are afraid to let go. Suffering will be the teacher.
Gretchen you are sooooooo right, and for those who do not want to listen or desire to see things in a different way, they will have to find out on their own.
I have nominated you for the very Inspiring blogger award not finished yet
Thank you so much Melanie! You are so very kind, I appreciate your award so much, however I have no clue how to copy and link all the stuff that is required in these awards, but I truly cherish your kindness and am very grateful for your award.
your name is posted, so that is all I want- I actually received 5 awards in 2 days-what is that?-bad luck? so lots of people to spread it around.
wow good for you, but I totally understand what you are saying! lol I cannot keep up with the award thing I wish it was easier for me to operate and understand!
Reblogged this on A Sacred Journey.
For years I accumulated possessions, more recently I’ve realised that it’s unimportant, thank you for your wise words
I think it is ok to accumulate some things because we are suppose to enjoy our time here, but when our things become our time and our everything we are missing the boat. When we can let go we actually gain the most treasures that free us from our own warped thinking.
Thank you so much for reading and sharing your thoughts, I truly appreciate the visit.
Have a great weekend!
