Eternity – what does it mean to us as we live our daily lives?
Our karma focuses our attention minute by minute but what if we could see our lives in terms of eternity?
These words published in a tiny book of daily readings or prayers spoke to me more intensely this week about what it means to live our lives from the viewpoint of eternity. I also wrote about it in this weeks The Seven Letters.
“Influence. January 10
When you come to Me, and I give you that Eternal Life I give to all who believe in Me, it alters your whole existence, the words you speak, the influences you have.
These are all eternal. They must be. They spring from the life within you, My Life, Eternal Life, so that they too live for ever. Now you see how vast, how stupendous, is the work of any soul that has Eternal life. The words, the influence, go on down the ages for ever. Now you see how vast, how stupendous, is the work of any soul that has Eternal life. The words, the influence, go on down the ages for ever.
You must ponder on these truths I give you. They are not surface facts, but the secrets of My Kingdom, the hidden pearls of rare price.
Meditate upon them. Work at them in your minds and hearts.”
