If God was writing this post, he’d give you tips for getting the most out of life. I’m pretty sure about this because I’ve read Dr. Eben Alexander’s book, “Proof of Heaven.”
In that book, God shows us what a sublime adventure we’re going to have after we die.
God would say, “Look, I’ve given you a beautiful earth on which to live if you’re not be too busy to see it, the challenges which put you into situations so you’ll learn and grow, and, people who will help you along the way.”
People who seem to have extra-ordinary success know the law of attraction and know that their thoughts do create the reality of their life.
The highest and best way to live is to take each moment in your life and to life it fully. If you do this, you won’t miss the small and wonderful things that come your way.
Choose to be happy. All the while, death is waiting. Dr. Alexander shows us that if we live every experience fully, then death takes nothing from us, although it does change everything.
Dr. Alexander, a brain surgeon, unexpectedly lay in a coma, not expected to live. His family gathered around his bedside, prayed, sang and talked to him. During his visit to the exquisite time beyond, as a professional physician he tried hard to remember his experiences in heaven.
(Fran, a lovely doctor who I met recently at Washington University, wrote her thesis on the importance and significance of family being with you during at such a time as Dr. Alexander’s. She actually has met the doctor/writer.)
When he slowly returned from the coma, his son gave him the best advice anyone can give a writer. “Dad,” he said, “Don’t tell me. Write it down.”
Enjoying life’s experiences, however good or bad, is the rational thing to do. You’re here. Be filled with joy and let things you dream come true. Victor Frankl was even able to do so in a Nazi death camp and lived to write about it in “Man’s Search for Meaning.”
If God were speaking, he’d say, “The greatest gift anyone can give me is to be pleased with my creation.”
I believe he likes to hang out with a person who does.
