If you had 24 hours to live .......

Can you imagine getting the news that you only had 24 hours to live??? What would you do, who would you tell ‘I LOVE YOU’ to and what would you eat??

Typically life is not kind enough to give us any type of warning as to when our time is up here on this Earth. So, the best thing to do is to live each day as if it were your last. Think about what you did today, what you wanted to do, who you got angry at, who you said ‘I LOVE YOU’ to, who you forgave, who you helped…..would you be satisfied with your day if it were your last?? For many, the answer will be no.

I think that the challenge is to now figure out how you can live your best life. How you can live your life without regrets. Not worrying what anyone else thinks or says about you. Life is way to short and you only get one shot!!!

Life Questions ..........

Let me ask you a question.....Would you live your life differently if you knew that there was no such thing as Heaven and Hell? Would you live your life differently if you knew that the idea of God was the figment of someones imagination in order to keep society in line?

Church and religion have now become very big business. It almost takes away from the true meaning of religion. When trying to determine your purpose in life, one typically aligns that purpose with goals and ideas of success. One also considers how they are going to reach their goals and the level of success that they are hoping to achieve. But, if you are trying to walk the straight and narrow to obtain your definition of success and you know that many have not walked the straight and narrow to achieve their it OK to question the theory of God and the idea that just because you act in a moral and ethical way that God will reward you with the success that you would like to achieve and that God would reward you with the ability to live out what you feel is your purpose in life. Does God owe you the success that you think that you deserve?

Are we really suppose to believe that God, as kind as he or she is, would want so much suffering to take place? Are we to believe that faith is the only answer when there is not answer?

Maybe, just maybe, the answer is to create your own any means necessary.

Now, I am not one that is going to take a chance on the idea that the theory of God is a hoax, but there is nothing wrong with being a little inquisitive when it comes to things such as your soul and eternal life.
