You Don't Have to Die to Go to Heaven

By Derrick Sweet

My book, 'You Don't Have to Die to Go to Heaven,' explores how we often create a "living hell" in our lives by not being aware of our ongoing thoughts, beliefs, and expectations. It also reveals how we can create a heavenly existence, where we experience more inner peace, happiness, meaning and contribution simply by becoming mindful and aware of our ongoing thoughts, beliefs, habits and expectations. As we become aware we naturally become mindful of each thought's impact on our emotions, our expectations, our relationships with others and our relationship with life itself. Awareness, however, is not so common in our society.

Most people in the west today seem to be hurrying through life, rushing from one task to the next, worrying about tomorrow's uncertainties, complaining about this or that, reacting to life with little regard, if any, for the long term consequences of each choice we make. Yet each choice we make, consciously or not, defines our life. How we greet this moment has either a negative or positive impact on the next moment. The problem is that most people seem to be waiting for the next moment to be better than the moment they are in. As long as we continue to wait for life to happen, for some event to occur (win the lottery, loose weight, get married, get divorced, the weekend, vacation, retire, etc.), we continue to put off living life today. I believe Benjamin Franklin got it right when he said, "Most people die at 25 and aren't buried until they're 75." What Mr. Franklin meant, of course, was that by the time most people reach the age of 25 they have already become conditioned to wait for life to happen. We can only live in the present moment. As long as we continue to wait, our true potential to be happy, to live, to discover new possibilities, to grow, to create, to make a difference, and to become what we are capable of becoming... dies!

For thousands of years humanity has been searching for happiness, looking for the path to find meaning and purpose. Throughout history, in every era, philosophers have continued to search for directions for this state of mind called "heaven on earth." We all have experienced moments which could be defined as heaven on earth. Maybe you found heaven while enjoying a new and exciting sensation; a new taste, a wonderful aroma, an exhilarating touch. Or perhaps you found heaven on earth from a peaceful feeling experienced during a sunrise, or sunset. To some, the very idea of finding heaven on earth may seem more like a fantasy than a possibility; it might be more believable, perhaps, if it (heaven on earth) came in the form of a cure-all little blue pill.

You won't find any pills in this book or prescriptions for pills. What you will find are thought provoking ideas and formulas which have the potential to elevate your consciousness to a level which could allow you to rise above your self-imposed limitations into a brand new realm of possibilities... even the possibility of finding heaven on earth. Until we find our own heaven on earth, like lost sheep we will wander through our days with a nagging realization that something is missing. As long as this realization exists there will continue to be a gap between what we intuitively know could be and what actually is. The objective of this book is to remind you how to discover, embrace and develop what could be. This book was written to show you how to find your higher self. We all have one and it's only through our higher self that heaven on earth can be realized! This book was written to teach you where to look, what to do and how to do it! Follow the simple instructions I have prepared for you and you'll soon realize that it's true... you don't have to die to go to heaven!

Derrick's new book, 'You Don't Have to Die to Go to Heaven' (Warwick Publishing), is now available! It is a follow up to 'Get the Most Out of Life,' which offered 84 suggestions that you could practice on a daily basis to experience more laughter, happiness, contentment and connection. It was a good place for us to start on our journey of self discovery. In writing this new book I wanted to take some of the key concepts of 'Get the Most Out of Life' to a deeper level.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
