Connecting or being reborn into the spiritual world of the unknown of enlightment that will guilde you for a peaceful life.
As one ponders the freedom of thought of happiness and spiritual happiness that dwells in a happy soul.

My question is, if someone says to you there are 2 part toward the life of a righteousness way of life , but the path of life leads only to one end of the life a righteousness person, yet he or she meets another person at the end of the 2 paths of life that can still enter the kingdom of God, what are your thoughts on this.

There is a big reason why I'm asking . I'll explain after I see some remarks.

thanks folks

There is no path to the kingdom of God - because God is always right here and right now.
God is seeing what is appearing now.

That is what I've always thought.
or felt.
The temple of God is at our door steps, why do most religions dont teach that.

Because they want you to submit to them, pay them tithe, and only they can be the conduit between yourself and the forgiveness of a god. The put the bogey man in your heart, and tell you that only they can save you, with the words as they hold them, of a god.

Pretty good con, really... fear the afterlife if you don't submit. So you willingly submit.

What do you mean by the spiritual world?

Are you referring to peace of mind?

Ummm...I'm always reminded how many times you find the phrase..."few there be that find it"...

Perhaps an admonishment on how the struggle is lifelong...and when you think you've somehow arrived...think again...

Are you asking that once an individual feels they've reached the end of their spiritual path that they then find love in the presence of another that surprised them there in the center of their compassion...?

Again I am reminded..."it is good to be in the light...yet how much better...to be a light within the light"...



I wonder if this is where your thoughts led you...

Righteousness is all about perspective. If you have a clean house its most likely because you exterminated insects & killed bacteria. Is destroying insects home in yours righteous? Is having a clean house? How is one to get to work or travel to help without using a gas powered car that suffocates the birds & bees. (Electric cars, not many people can afford them): Is it more righteous to work & establish a structure with society? Or is it more righteous to straight care for all animals? Supervised xperimentation is righteous as long as it cures. So is not torturing animals for cures. It is all about perspective. Main base though, face it, we are going to space.

Your question doesn't make any sense. So, are both paths towards the "righteousness way of life" supposed to be followed by righteous people or not? Are you suggesting that both the righteous and unrighteous are capable of entering the kingdom of God? If so, how is the unrighteous person following a "righteous way of life"?

Yes! We, everything, is God experiencing itself from different points of view.

Or, they know you are on a self destructive path and they actually give a damn about your fate.

Christianity teaches it.

One day the Pharisees asked Jesus, “When will the Kingdom of God begin?” Jesus replied, “The Kingdom of God isn’t ushered in with visible signs. 21 You won’t be able to say, ‘It has begun here in this place or there in that part of the country.’ For the Kingdom of God is within you.” - Luke 17:20-21 (The Living Bible).

When they say "spiritual world", I don't think they mean peace of mind.

Righteousness has nothing to do with value relativism.

Do you really think having a clean house, or not traveling in a car, is righteous?

Righteousness is the will to do the right thing according to God and your fellow man/woman (not animals, insects and bacteria).

Christianity reveals that none of us is righteous enough by our own efforts, that those that try and do the right thing, and those that don't, would have exactly the same fate when compared to the absolute standards of a pure and holy God.

It is only through God giving us concession, through God granting us forgiveness, that both the righteous and the unrighteous can attain heaven.

But God does want us to want to be righteous - to try and do better - to repent of our wrongful ways. He sees our inner being, so we can't trick Him. We must be truly wanting to do the right thing.

Your spirit is always connected to the source.

The light that pulses in your heart is the only light you have to make it grow or shrink and let it die.

Your spirit either gets stronger or you lose it and start to fade from the inside out.

How would having a very dirty house be justifiable or morally right? It can be I guess. Animals are all equal in their way, we are all needed for our momentary purpose for the ecosystem on a universal scale as an ant to an anteater. Automobiles are very harmful, not with just gases & the factories fumes it takes to make em but accidents or road squash. Technology is a dangerous game from a casket or the first sword to nuclear waste. It may be righteous to exterminate spiders or ants or it is even legal to kill verman, righteous does not seem to be the word for ending a life though. For food probs. not for a clean yard maybe.

The cleanliness of your house is not a moral issue. Usually, what drives that is more likely to be indicative of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Having a degree of cleanliness and tidiness has health advantages, but it isn't about moral right and wrong. It is something that is amoral.

Consider that someone whose house may be a bit messy could actually be doing good things for others instead. That would be morally right.

Or someone who obsessively keeps their house like a hospital due to OCD or for their personal pride? That would not be morally right.

What about people with psychological issues like the infamous 'cat ladies' who live in squalid conditions with more cats than can be adequately managed. Are they being morally right? Are they being morally wrong? Are they, instead, victims of their own ideation and blameless?

Are you the judge and do you determine the standard? If so, then what if others disagree? What of the situation where your circumstance required (say for survival) that you do something that you and others would otherwise classify as morally wrong?

This is the problem with value relativism. It fails in a rational sense. At some point, we have to choose an absolute standard external to the many grey area issues. That is why ancient codifications of law and conduct exist in the first place.

It is clear that there are many everyday things that are entirely amoral and that value relativism must itself defer to an absolute standard, for true justice to work.

What light pulses in my heart and how may I adjust its amplitude in a practical sense? Also, photons, as energy quanta, exist forever. It's in the math.

By classical definition, spirits are eternal, the spirit world not being affected by entropy like the physical realm.



You should write advertising, you have a flair for saying so little with so many words.
