What Happens After Death?

God Exists

Is there a life after ‪#‎Death‬? Can you imagine of going to sleep and never ever waking up? What would happen after we die?

When you die, you are not going to be put into ever lasting nonexistence. Because that is not an experience. Lot of people are afraid that when they die, they are gonna be locked up in a dark room forever.

Try and imagine what will it be like to go to sleep and never wake up. Think about that. It is one of the greatest wonders of life. If you really think about it, you will question yourself, about what was it like to wake up after having never gone to sleep? And, this was when you were born.

See, you can’t have experience of nothing. So, after you are dead, the only thing that can happen is the same experience or the same sort of experience as when you were born.

In other words, we all know very well that after people die, other people are born. And, they are all you.

3 Reasons Why It’s Important To Learn From What Life Is Trying To Teach You

3 Reasons Why It’s Important To Learn From What Life Is Trying To Teach You

In a life, there are uncertainties. But, the one constant on which we can all depend is the hardships we will undoubtedly face.

There are ups; there are downs, and there are times when we will feel like the universe is against us. There will be curve-balls for which it will be impossible to prepare; situations that are out of our control and truths we must learn to accept.

However, there are situations in life that are absolutely in our control. Life is a long journey with many roads along the way, and it is up to us to learn the best ways to efficiently navigate our lives.

As we get older and face many more winters, we will develop a sense of how to trek our own personal path. People have different tricks of the trade as to how they confront life’s twist and turns, but as we age and live, we gain wisdom that allows us to keep moving forward.

Progress, no matter the increment, is positive and displays a willingness to learn and change with every bend in the road toward the destination.

When we fail to tend to the failures we face in life, this progress is curtailed, and as a result, we become stagnant. It is so easy to point a finger at any and every person for the problems we face.

However, if we stop and try to see what we’re not doing, it could open our eyes to the changes we must make in order to continue toward a better life.

This is why it is important to pay attention to what life is trying to teach us.

Turn problems into lessons

Have you ever seen someone repeatedly in the same compromising situation? Ironically enough, these are the same people who describe themselves as “stuck.”

If our parents can’t convince us, and if the severity of other people’s mishaps wont persuade us, life certainly won’t mind testing and retesting us until we learn the hard way.

Whether it’s failure to use contraception or infidelity in relationships, if we don’t see our consequences as reasons why we’re “stuck,” we will continue to be in a stuck state.

Some life struggles are indicators of a wrong approach, and it’s up to us to see these trials not as punishments, but as lessons warning us to adjust our approaches.


Dangers of not learning from our failures

When we fail to stand still and take notice of our current circumstances, we immediately put our futures in jeopardy. Pride is dangerous, and we hate admitting that we need to change. “My study habits are fine,” you say; yet, you repeatedly fail exams.

“I am a good driver; it’s not as many tickets as you think,” then you get your license suspended. “What, you mean I’m not good with my money? I take offense to that!” yet you’re living paycheck to paycheck.

We have to pay attention to our circumstances and learn from them, or else we will be forced to continually repeat the same hardships.


Progress when you do learn from your mistakes

Life is all about moving forward, and it would be a shame for us to get to a certain age without learning how to navigate problems we should have solved ages ago.

When we acknowledge our mistakes and take the necessary steps to avoid repeating them, we gain valuable knowledge that will better us in the future.

Why You Should Never Trust Someone Who’s Too Nice

Why You Should Never Trust Someone Who’s Too Nice

Personally, I would never trust anyone who’s overly nice. I don’t want to tell anyone what to do, or whom to trust, but that’s just how I feel. I mean, think about it. Is anybody ever really that nice or that happy without having ulterior motives?

There are times in life that are just genuinely sh*tty. If they don’t faze you, I start to question what you could possibly be hiding. And you know exactly the type of people I’m referring to.

You’ll be standing on a packed 7 train in the middle August, like a sweat-infused tin of sardines, with fluid from the air conditioning dripping on your forehead like new age Chinese water torture.

You can sense everyone standing in your vicinity rolling their eyes, except one middle-aged man, who’s inexplicably grinning from ear-to-ear. As if he’s amused.

Just visualize that. You can’t help but start to question his ulterior motives. Anger and aggression are essential human qualities, and while they might be a bitch to deal with when regarding your roommate or mother, they’re vital to the whole mind-body connection.

When you’re missing one of these traits, or are overly abundant in another, like kindness, the whole “recipe” becomes unbalanced. Think of someone who’s overly nice as, like, an overly sweet piece of cheesecake.

Sure, after your first bite, you think you’re indulging in the finest wedge of cake you’ve ever encountered. However, by about bite three, you realize the cake is TOO sweet and really just makes you nauseated. This same type of thing happens with people who are TOO nice.

After a while, sweetness gets old, and you want realness instead. While nice people are fantastic individuals, it doesn’t mean they’re always trustworthy. Confusing kindness for honesty can be a fatal error. I’ll explain.

You DEFINITELY shouldn’t trust anyone who’s overly nice regarding anything fashion. I’ll explain. It was the first day of 5th grade, and to be honest, I was just super stoked about starting middle school.

Middle school was big-doing, back in the day, take it from me. You went from tables in elementary school to desks, cubbies to lockers, cooties to making out with girls. To say the least, I was feeling myself.

I remember the scene perfectly. I ran into the kitchen and yelled, “HEY MA, HOW DO I LOOK?” She told me “like the most handsome boy I’ve ever seen,” and with that, I jumped on the bus, hoping for a magical start to my middle school career.

Literally speaking, though. That was the issue. It was during my big “Harry Potter” phase, which aptly preceded my “first rebellious phase,” and I was dressed like a student of Hogwarts Academy. OBVIOUSLY, my wizard looking ass got damn near laughed off the bus.

Truly, my mom was only trying to be nice though, by telling me I looked handsome as opposed to suggesting I go upstairs and put on a basketball jersey. However, if she didn’t worry so much about hurting my feelings – within the privacy of our own kitchen – she would’ve saved me years of humiliation among my peers.

My mother is a saint, but let’s be real, after that day I knew I couldn’t trust her fashion sense. Not in a bad way, just because I didn’t know if she was keeping it a stack with the boy. That’s the main take home point here.

In life, a lot of the times, hearing the truth sucks. Whether it be pertaining to the girlfriend or boyfriend that you’ve been suspecting is cheating or waiting for the results of some test you didn’t really prepare for. Hence, if you want the truth – try to avoid people who are considered “nice.”

To help put that in perspective, think of “kindness” and “honesty” as the second cousins of character traits. They’re kind of related, but technically have nothing to do with one another. And that’s the problem with a lot of nice people, they’re afraid to hurt others’ feelings.

Sure, MOST nice people will also be honest – simply because honesty is USUALLY a “nice” trait to exhibit. But not always.

A lot of nice people WON’T be honest in an attempt to uphold their kindness. However, I remind you, white lies are still lies. And they can end up causing a lot more issues than plain old honesty, and a touch of chutzpah.

If you want the truth, find an assh*le. They’ll always tell it straight.

My Life Experience from Nov-12-2012 to Sep-08-2014

I joined an organization on 12-11-12 (These numbers are now present in all my passwords and I’m gonna change all of ’em) and resigned on 08-09-2014. It was nice to work with these people.

Some of the one liners for me told by different people are as follows:

I told her that Darwin loved her and she told that she did not love Darwin back. I, then, told her that Darwin sat at the other building.

Do you enjoy stress? In what way has not having inner peace served you?

Your physical reality is just an illusion, but the experience of it is real. That is all is real. It is like a mirror. You know, you all know, if you have a glass mirror and you see your reflection in it and your reflection is frowning and you don’t go over to the mirror and try to change the reflection into a smile. You do not manipulate the physical reality because it is only a reflection. There is nothing there. But, you know that the moment you actually decide to smile, the reflection has no choice, but to smile back.

If you put your hand into the fire you will get burned. You can get burned, if you want to. It’s okay. If you, so happens, that you don’t want to get burned, you don’t put your hand in fire. So, in the same way, if you don’t want to be in a state of anxiety all the time, and, again I emphasize, if you like be anxious, it’s perfectly alright. You can go running around and play whatever you want just as long as you want to and as long as you think it’s fun. But, if there comes a time when you don’t think it’s fun, you don’t have to do it.

3 Necessary Keys To Unlocking Your Own Personal Sense Of Greatness

3 Necessary Keys To Unlocking Your Own Personal Sense Of GreatnessSome people are born with natural talent. Others must work day in and day out to attain theirs. But, no matter from which angle you look at it, you can’t be great at everything you do. However, you can absolutely bring greatness into your life. This leaves us with two questions: What is greatness? How can greatness be achieved?

From a young age, I was quite ambitious. My parents did the best they could with what they had, but I always strived for something more. I desired fame, glory and success.

So, it was quite the reality check when I discovered that I couldn’t simply walk into a company and snatch an executive’s job. At least I had an imagination.

My second reality check happened when I saw my colleagues, some of whom couldn’t hold an intellectual conversation, triple my income. With that, I decided to enslave myself to my work… Boom! For a whole week, I did better than 97 percent of the company.

And then, the next week, I was back to average. It made me realize that there are some things in life (from jobs to relationships) that will only win you so much. You simply won’t be the best at some things and, at times, you will most definitely fail.

But, if you’re doing something for you, you will learn from your experiences and that is the mark of true success. Each and every person in the world has the ability to do more than what anyone else could ever imagine.

Although each person must find a personal sense of greatness, these three keys will help open the door in finding yours:

Persistence

Some days, you will want to quit. You will feel pain and decreased self-esteem. Those times in our lives can really suck. Those times can take so much out of you when you’re consistently working toward a goal and not reaching it, so instead of giving up, why not pause and celebrate your small successes?

Don’t let the difficult times guide your life. Be keen with your senses, listen to others and take what you learn to your future experiences. Never stop moving forward in your life.


Willingness To Fail

Why are you here? It took a long ride, full of trials and tribulations, for me to comprehend that I simply won’t be the best at everything I do. But, the fact that I can willingly give something my all — even if I know I may fail or be average — is notable.

Define what you are doing and why you’re doing it. Remind yourself of this every single day. Follow this by reassuring yourself that if you fail, you will continue to try. It may be uncomfortable and painful for you to deal with, but you can learn something, no matter whether you succeed or fail.

Our willingness to find greatness can never be greater than our willingness to fail. Don’t give up on yourself. If you quit, you’ll never know what could’ve been.


Vulnerability

Each time we go into an experience with our vulnerable selves, we leave the door open to opportunity. Be ready to give your all and accept even more in return. Closed minds create small results. Open minds create endless possibilities.

We convince ourselves that pain is so unbearable that we should never feel it. We protect ourselves from letting anything in — good or bad. I can’t tell you that everything in your life will feel good, but I can tell you that, in the long run, it will always be worth it.


Bring On The Greatness

Greatness is finding love within yourself and being able to pour your heart into something with acceptance that you may fail.

If your heart is in something for the wrong reason, you may never find fulfillment. I’ve learned that fame, glory and success are conditional side dishes to what I truly want: to feel whole.

So, do you dare to ask the universe for what you desire? You have a choice: pursue what you don’t want or work toward what you might love.

If you give something your all, you may fail catastrophically, but you also may open up your life to some magnitude of greatness. Bottom line: Be vulnerable, be persistent and be ready to fail.

Two Sides of F.E.A.R.: Forget Everything And Run Or Face Everything And Rise

Two Sides of F.E.A.R.: Forget Everything And Run Or Face Everything And Rise
We are animals – nothing more. Like all animals, we evolved over the years, adapting to our surroundings and circumstances. We developed skills and physical traits that would allow us to survive, to guarantee longevity for our species.

I understand that you believe yourself to be special – just about every human being does. And understandably so. What separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom is our cognitive abilities (although likely not quite as large a separation as you may think).

We don’t just think, we explore. We dissect, deduce, induce and imagine. We draw conclusions in ways that other animals cannot. We can foresee, with a level of certainty, certain future events. This allows us to make decisions that other animals could not possibly make.

Nevertheless, we are still only animals. This is something that too many seemingly forget or wish away. We still have many of those most basic instincts, instincts that all other animals share. The most basic of which is fear. Animals feel fear just as do we.

What differentiates the fear that we experience, however, is that extra ability of understanding – we understand the possible consequences of a fearful situation. This fact is both a blessing and a curse.

You see, while all animals (I’m using the word “all” liberally) have a switch that tells them to either run or fight – the famous “fight or flight” scenario – we as humans seem to have more control over which way that switch is flipped.

Initially, we will have a reaction to the fear-inducing circumstance, and that reaction will either be to run and hide or to stand up tall and fight.

Yet, after that initial reaction, we begin to understand that initial reaction. We begin to dissect our reaction and then decide whether or not to go ahead and continue in the direction our instincts told us to head.

Some will follow their initial reactions all the way. Others who initially felt fear and a need to run may decide to stay instead and fight. Others still, experiencing the initial reaction of fighting, may decide that it’s in their best interest to turn around and run for the hills.

The point is that, in the end, regardless of our fight or flight instincts, we as human beings decide how we react to fear – nature no longer decides for us.

Calling our reactions a part of the “fight or flight” scenarios no longer does us justice – especially when introducing more complex situations that don’t necessarily involve a risk to our lives.

Fear, in reality, induces one of two responses. We either have to Forget Everything And Run or we must Face Everything And Rise.

Simplifying our experiences to just fighting or running only touches on the surface. There is much more involved, or rather there is much more that needs to be involved when dealing with a frightening situation.

Because so few people understand what implications the simplest of decisions have on their psyche, few bother to follow through properly.

If you decide to get yourself out of a dangerous or frightening situation, then you can’t simply run and hope for the best.

Your cognitive abilities are too highly developed to allow you to simply go on living like nothing happened – something did happen and the more difficult the decision to call it quits was, the more profound and lasting effect it will have on you.

If you’re going to run then you have to actively forget about the situation you were in. You can’t simply go on living your life the way you were living it before because it will all catch up with you sooner or later.

The only way to truly forget is to delve deeper into the problem, dissecting it to the point where you understand that the issue no longer requires or is deserving of your attention. Most will call this closure.

Deciding to run and call it quits, in any of the most important facets of life, is a difficult decision to make and an even more difficult decision to live with. If you react to your fear by running then don’t just brush the situation off, do your best to understand why the decision you made was the right one.

Get that much needed closure so that you can focus your thoughts on the present and future. If you now regret the decision to run then dissect the matter until you understand why it was a bad decision and why you will never make that same decision again. Once you understand, forget and move on.

On the other hand, if fear triggers the fighting response in you then be sure you know exactly what you are getting yourself into. If you decide to fight, then you have to fight to win. You have to face everything fighting against you and rise above it all. If you are going to fight then fight to kill.

Most people fail in life because they make decisions they cannot follow through with. They respond to fear, aggressively for example, but then fear the decision they made and end up failing miserably.

If you decide to fight then be sure that you are ready to fight. Be sure that you are willing to do what needs to be done no matter how difficult or scary it may be.

If you get in the ring then fight until you either rise above everything and everyone else or until you are torn to pieces. If you’re going to fight then fight until the end – fight to come out on top. You’re already lucky because you’re human. Make that mean something.

Being Selfish Isn’t Being Rude… It’s Putting Your Happiness First

Being Selfish Isn’t Being Rude… It’s Putting Your Happiness First

I used to think the key to happiness and success in life came from the art of giving and being selfless. After all, we live in a world where selfishness is common and selflessness barely exists.

I hated selfish people. I made it my day-to-day job to undo the bad I thought they did. What I didn’t realize, though, was how necessary it is to be selfish in this world. In fact, the key to happiness is indeed being selfish.

So, what does it mean to be selfish?

To be selfish means you exist without people or things or places. Being selfish means you have an identity that belongs to you and only you. It’s an identity that when removed from a person, place or thing is your own. It’s reliance of and on the self.

However, it cannot happen until you go out of your way to make sure you do things that are just for you.

Other people can’t make you happy and materials can’t make you happy. When they do, they’re only little adrenaline rushes. It’s something like a drug that gives you a high — but how long does the high last before you’re hit with the comedown that manages to last twice as long?

I used to be happy and sad and always at the same time. It was because I gave too much to and for other people. I was one in seven billion who became what everyone else wanted of me — except me. It was no wonder I felt alone at night; I didn’t know who I was until someone told me who he or she wanted me to be for the day.

So, I finally hit the brake pedal. I gave up on trying to make the world happy and decided to do things for myself. I realized I couldn’t save people, no matter how badly I had wanted to do so.

All I could do was save myself, and in doing so, maybe give someone else the chance to be the same type of happy. I would do it by revealing how the selfless person became selfish and found happiness. I mean, I gave and gave, but who was giving for me? Who sacrificed anything at all, for me? No one.

It didn’t mean they were bad people; it just meant they had something I didn’t. Something I saw as self worth and importance. Do for yourself and when you do for others, don’t sacrifice your identity.

So, I spent time alone. I read books, went to parks, found new bars and did things I loved without looking for someone else’s approval. I existed by myself, for myself. It made all of the difference.

We think people will like us more if we do everything they want; if we are everything they want. But in doing that, we become objects. People aren’t objects; they’re visions and stand for purposes.

How many friends do you really need? How many people do you need to call your best friend? I mean, how many can you have when you can barely keep up with the amount of people you’re trying to know?

I’ve learned that in your 20s, you must come first. Maybe that’s hard to grasp sometimes, but your life and future does not create itself in your teens. It happens more so in your 20s — the decade of figuring out who you are and what you want.

So, let go of things. Stop deciding an unknown future based on a temporary bliss and fleeting acceptance. Be selfish. Be you and who you want to be without the pressures of outside opinions.

What’s meant to be will always end up being. You can’t rush or slow it down; it will happen when and where it does, when it’s supposed to.

Be selfish and make decisions that will lead to your ultimate happiness. Give in to your wants. This is the only time we can really be selfish without restraint.
