Living forever


About Living forever

The religious go to heaven and the non-religious go to hell. True or false? What does the Bible have to say about this?

According to Pope Francis, atheists can go to heaven  and the Bible seems to agree. Jesus told the parable of the Good Samaritan to explain to his disciples what loving one’s neighbour is all about. Interestingly enough in this parable the two religious people didn’t perform so well.

Last week I wrote a post about Mother Teresa being declared a saint by the Catholic Church. I mentioned how this made me think about the legacy that I’m leaving behind. I changed the banner on this blog to reflect my thoughts.

Will all of us live forever?

I say yes. Believing in Jesus and following his teachings comes with a promise of afterlife. But what if we’re not religious, and we don’t believe in heaven and/or hell?

All of us, after passing on, will live on in the hearts and memories of the people that knew us. Even a one-day-old baby will make an impression on the people around him/her.

What legacy will we leave behind? Writing a book is one of many ways to leave behind a legacy. But regardless if we write a book or not, every single day we continuously make impressions on others and affect the lives of those around us. And this is true also for people who do not do much of anything at all. Be that by choice or because of illness.
Inaction can have as much, if not a greater impact than action.

Do you know the saying that people may not remember what you said or did; but they will remember how you made them feel, a long time after you’re gone?

Jesus the Greatest Teacher that ever lived.

Jesus was the greatest teacher that ever lived for sure. His teachings live on in the hearts of billions of people today and this is millennia after his Crucifixion. Religious and non-religious people alike admire his humility, strength, compassion and try to live according to his morals and teachings. Jesus disciples saw Jesus ascend up into heaven.
But if you’re non-religious and have difficulties believing this, there is no denying the fact that Jesus is living on forever in the hearts and minds of the majority of humanity.

So is there an afterlife?

My Bible tells me yes and I believe this. But let’s assume for a moment that you’re not religious and you do not believe in an afterlife. Your words and actions and the impressions you make on the people around you will live on long after you’ve passed on.
Food for thought, I think.

When it looked like I was going to die, at some stage I was desperate to just get my paperwork and ‘smalls drawer’ in order. I did not want to be remembered as someone who left a chaotic mess behind.

I was not able to get up and sort these things myself and had to rely on others to do so for me. This taught me to deal with ‘things’ as they come up because I learned that ‘later’ may never come.

During and after my long illness I looked for and found role models and mentors, people that have gone before and I can look up to and follow. Jesus and Mother Teresa are two obvious role models that are perfect traveling companions for my spiritual journey.

For my book publishing journey I’ve found other mentors and I will share some of their websites and services with you in a future blog post.

Do you know your life’s purpose?

The other day I stumbled across a book called ‘Destination Unknown’ by John H Clark III. I do not agree with the title of the book, because as mentioned earlier I believe that my destination is known. I acknowledge however that for many people this is not the case. And I agree with John that; no matter what the beliefs, there is a sense that contemplating the great unknown—what happens when we die—creates more meaning to the days we have left on this earth.

I understand where Missy Walters is coming from. She is one of the contributors from John’s book and she mentions,

one-reason-i-hesitate

quote by Missy Walters in Destination Unknown by John H Clark III

I have not read the whole book and may not agree with the majority of views but it is not about that. It is about human beings expressing their views on life after death and we’re all entitled to have our view on this without dogma getting in the way.
I post the description to John’s book below because it is an interesting exercise to read what other people’s beliefs are.

John H. Clark III wrote a book called ‘Destination Unknown.’ Below is the description of his Amazon product page.

Begin Amazon description

Do You Know Your Life’s Purpose?

Are you looking for more meaning in your life? Are you tired of just getting through each day instead of feeling a sense of purpose and direction? Sometimes the answer to a question is best explored in reverse. In order to find more purpose in life, perhaps we need to go to the end—death—and work backwards from there. Is it possible that contemplating death can lead to more meaning in life?

Is There Such a Thing as Life After Death?

What happens to us after we die? Do we see our loved ones who have passed? Do we enter a white tunnel of life? Do we go straight to Heaven or Hell? Or is there simply blackness? Since the dawn of time, human beings have been asking these very questions. The subjects of life, death, and purpose are arguably the most important we will ever encounter.

Questions of Death, Answers for Life

John Clark has tackled the weighty subject of life after death in his newest book, Destination Unknown. Through interviews with people all over the globe—Buddhists, atheists, Christians; men and women; young and old; school teachers, IT professionals, and military personnel—he has compiled a tapestry of views on death that are as diverse as the people themselves. Some believe in ghosts, spirits, and other dimensions. Some are sure they will meet God, be judged, and sent to Heaven or Hell. Some have had near death experiences. But no matter what the beliefs, there is a sense that contemplating the great unknown—what happens when we die—creates more meaning to the days we have left on this earth.

End Amazon description

Over the years I have studied and practiced different world religions and eventually embraced the Bible as God’s Holy Word and the authority in my life. As such I may share but can not endorse other views expressed on my blog.

What happened to me

My Story of Survival

BK COVER F My Story of Survival round 2 v4 72 900pxHIf you’ve read My Story of Survival, you know that I burned out pretty good and due to neglecting my health for a long time nearly ended up on the scrapheap. But GOD is good and heard my prayers and now I have all this bonus time available to write books.

I felt that I needed to tell what happened to me as a warning to other people not to neglect their health, because life is very precious and none of us is invincible.

When I started off writing the book I didn’t particularly enjoy what I was doing because, let’s face it, why write about illness once you are starting to feel better?

However, during the process of writing the book I got excited that little ol’ me would be able to help some people and possibly even prevent others from getting sick, just by telling my story.

This is indeed what happened, and I cannot even begin to tell you how happy that makes me. Here are a few reviews from the UK.

AMAZON UK REVIEWS

Format: Kindle Edition

I got hold of this book for a friend of mine that has the same type of problem as Mimi. I think the book is very useful for people discovering how your bodies react to food. I am sure this book will help my friend. I recommend this book to anyone who has any kind of physical or emotional eating disorder. I gave it 4 out of 5 because I would like it to be longer. I hope the author writes more.

Half way through and loving it. Well written, thoughtful. Funny and marvelous moments with the Lord raising up too 😀

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I love this book. It is based on author’s experience of food intolerances. I find it is full of great information and notes on healthy diet which can be beneficial for everyone.
.
 .

All the way from the other side of the planet people are reading what I am writing down and gaining some benefit. How cool is that?

For long periods of time I couldn’t even handle the flickering of a computer screen or the soft buzzing of a monitor. I wasn’t able to sit up or lift my hands for any length of time. Who would have thought that I be writing my own book?

What I never expected in a million years is that I would actually enjoy the whole process of becoming a published author. Because that is what I am now; a published author.

I am having so much FUN!!!

I am not only a published, but a bestselling author as well. In seven categories! I am not saying this to brag. I am telling you because I want to share how much fun it is to be able to share my story so that others can benefit.

I have not had this much FUN in a long long time and I just want to share!

Because I enjoyed the whole process so much I decided to partner with the Self-Publishing School which helped me publish my very first bestseller and want to let you know about the same opportunity as well.

FREE WEBINAR ON HOW TO BECOME A BESTSELLING AUTHOR

FREE VIDEO SERIES ON HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR OWN BOOK

SELFPUBLISHING SCHOOL

The School is having a special on at the moment and you can click here to receive a free video series on how to publish your own book.

This mini-course is broken down into 4 training videos and exercises that show you exactly how to cross off “write that book” from your bucket list — in just 30 minutes a day.

First it’ll show you the exact blueprint to go from blank page to bestselling author in just 90 days — even if you’re busy, bad at writing, or don’t know where to start.

The video then tells you how to build momentum and finally cross out “write a book” on your bucket list.

Bestselling Book Launch Blueprint

The video includes the Bestselling Book Launch Blueprint: How to turn your book into a bestseller, including Amazon’s “Rule of 3” Secret that maximizes sales.

Chandler also discusses case studies of bestselling authors and details the kind of royalty checks they have coming in every month.

I had already pretty much written my book when I signed up with SPS. Why would you need to do a course on publishing a book if you have already written one? You don’t have to. You can write to traditional publishers and I will pray with you that they’ll take you on as an author. You can publish as an Indie Publisher with Smashwords, Apple, Amazon, Lulu and a whole host of other publishers out there without having anyone help you. And I’ll wish you good luck and sincerely hope that it works out for you.

You can google anything nowadays and there are endless guides on how to publish your own book. As a matter of fact I just wrote my own official launch plan and you will get a free copy of this if you join my launch team.

What is so terrific about this School is that there is a proven Blueprint to follow and they help you from A to Z.  They even help you with what to write about if you would like to become a published author, but do not know what to write about.

I had already written around 12,000 words of my book when I signed up with SPS. I had already paid for another course when I signed up with SPS. But there was something about this enthusiastic young kid, Chandler Bolt, that appealed to me. And without overthinking it too much, I signed up because there is a solid money back guarantee.

Best Selling banner

I am so pleased I did. It is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most FUN experiences of my life that I’ve now published a book and have people read and appreciate this.
And as a bonus for my efforts, I’ve received a bestselling banner from Amazon. How cool is that!

AA AMAZON BESTSELLER SELFHELP

After three months, School is over. My book is now published, I get to keep the course and can repeat the process as often as I like. But I signed up to stay part of the group cause I am having too much FUN.

I wanted to let you know about this because, if you’re like me and always wanted to write and publish a book but didn’t know how-to, I’d love you to join me as a fellow student at SPS.

The course is FUN, the school is FUN, the TEAM is awesome and the students … each and every one of them hard working authors and/or authors to be.  I have never before read so many good books in my life and met so many FUN people. Such a treat. I love everything about it.

Quick Tour of why I like SPS

I’ll give you a quick tour of why I like SPS so much.

A day later on 17.12.2015, My Story of Survival lists number one under Amazon Best Sellers in Science and Math. My daughter says that this is out of 226,303 books. I don’t know if this is true. I didn’t check the numbers.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Less than ten days later on 26.10.2015 My Story of Survival ranks in another relevant category #1 Best Seller under Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Why is this so good? This is so good because all these categories are relevant to the content of my book and anyone who is suffering from any of these conditions would have come across my book if they were googling for this. That means that my wish and prayer of being able to help people, is being answered.

Chronic Pain

Amazon #1 Best Seller under Chronic Pain on 26.12.2015. And that just was like a huge band-aid on wounds for me and I couldn’t feel as much as a twinge of pain all day long on the 26th.

Viral Diseases

Amazon #1  Best Seller in Viral Diseases. Nothing wrong with going viral, is there?
So what if I didn’t agree with any of the labels I was given? The conditions attached to these labels still affect me one way or another and these labels are still being handed out to people today.

Thanks to Amazon, customers who are affected by similar labels can find My Story of Survival and hopefully benefit from reading it and join my pursuit for a clean bill of health.

AA AMAZON BESTSELLER SELFHELP VIRAL

I have only listed the #1 rankings. At various times My Story of Survival ranked also under Best sellers in the categories of Medical Books- Medicine, Diseases and Physical ailments and Nutrition. To be honest I couldn’t quite keep up with where my book was travelling.

Christian Books … Self-Help

On 29.12.2015 My Story of Survival received the Amazon Best Sellers badge in the category of Self-Help books.

I know that I had already mentioned that, but it is such a pretty banner I just couldn’t resist finishing on such a good note. Because that self-help was only possible for me due to the oodles of faith.

AA AMAZON BADGE SELFHELP RELIGION 29122015

Whilst Amazon is taking care of business I can continue writing my next book. Did you know that GOD hath made me to laugh? Now you know another reason why this is so!! All I got to say now is Praise the Lord for being so good to me!!
