THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

“Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven” Lyrics by Loretta Lynn:

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Once upon a time there lived a man and his name was Isaac
He walked with God both day and night but he didn’t wanna die
He cried oh Lord please let me live death is close I know
God smiled down on Isaac and gave him fifteen years to go

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Lord I wanna go to heaven but I don’t wanna die
So I long for the day when I’ll have new birth still I love the livin’ here on earth
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

When Jesus lived here on this earth he knew his father’s plan
He knew that he must give his life to save the soul of men
When Judas had betrayed him his father heard him cry
He was brave until his death but he didn’t wanna die
Everybody wants to go to heaven…
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die

Loretta Lynn

COMMENT:

Dealing with the inevitability of personal death is the greatest issue facing every man and woman living in this world. The problem is that very few people look at this reality “with eyes wide open!” The pain for many is too great! So what do we do? We collect money and things and busy ourselves in mindless tasks so that they do not have to deal with this TRUTH. Is your wish to live due to the need for the enjoyment of material wealth or for spiritual growth?

We usually live in a dream state, unwilling to wake up and look in the mirror and face reality. Being on the move, always busy- no time for thinking or introspection – is not the way to find true happiness. KNOW THYSELF – One has to look deep inside, meditate and find the true meaning of why you are here on Earth – at this critical time. Find your divine purpose. Find out what is your role in being part of the solution rather than being part of the problem? Crass materialism will never bring happiness as you have to leave it all one day, if it does not disappear in an economic world wide depression before you die.

However, discovering that light within your soul and striving to be a connection to the Universal Energy Source would ensure your spiritual and emotional self-actualization. You would then realize that escapism from reality only pushes the pain of conscious life in the sub-conscious and is harmful to your health and sanity. Facing up to reality and accepting yourself and the short sojourn you have on Earth, and how you can be of service to mankind is the motto that you should have as you move through life realizing that selfishness and inflated egos are the enemies of spiritual development. Live each day to the fullest but always be AWARE of each life-sustaining breath you take.Make your life one of service to the Universal Goodness of Mankind.

World without end! – And all of us are an integral part of this truth.
