There is a unique story in each of us. Where that story begins, how it unfolds and how it will end are vital parts of our considerations. We are usually pretty clear about how it is currently unfolding but the other two ends of the spectrum are often clouded or confused by conflicting religious beliefs and mythology. The objective of this series, "Pleasure and Pain", is to shed some light on the process by which we grow in spirit. After almost 50 years of working as a psychologist, visiting over 36 countries and working with thousands of people who have told me their story, I can see some patterns to our spiritual growth. I can also see good reasons to put aside many religious teachings and more clearly focus on the nature of the human spirit. This means that instead of looking at "Original Sin" we need to focus on our "Original Blessings" and recognize that we are eternal beings. But the Gift of Eternal Life involves both pleasure and pain. For various reasons, some of us enjoy more of the first and suffer less of the second. For other people the reverse is true. In this book we identify some of the underlying reasons and explore some ways to make a positive difference.

According to Christian doctrine, what happens to those who have died? While traditionally it has been said that one group of people spends eternity in heavenly happiness while another group experiences conscious, unending torment in hell, there are other Christians who believe in alternativesthat hell is simply a separation from God, that the lost are simply annihilated and not subject to torment, or that actually, in the end, all will be reconciled to God and live in heavenly glory. The Gift of God Is Eternal Life explores a five-century journey that traces the development and dispersal of the doctrines of universalism and conditional immorality in a compelling narrative collection of short stories. Beginning from when these doctrines were merely whispered about or published anonymously to the days when traveling evangelists preached them in the new and growing American republic, these engaging vignettes show how this once intense debate between Christians has evolved into modern times where such ideas can be freely discussedeven in mainstream television and evangelism. Do infants who die prior to an age of accountability receive salvation, and are those who have never heard the Christian message simply doomed? What about loved ones who die without having embraced the Christian gospelor those who believe in less-traditional Christian dogmas and institutions? The Gift of God Is Eternal Life can help both believers and nonbelievers understand the implications of these theological perspectivesnot just in an afterlife, but in their own lives here and now.

The Key That Unlocks the Gift is a chronicled journey, not about what was lost, but what was found. What does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul? God has blessed us with life and wishes that we live abundantly. He blesses us with relationships, jobs, and finances; many times those things become our idols and our gods. Many times, when we began to worship the created thing more than the Creator, God will reposition those things away from us to get our focus back on Him. In a time of seeming loss, it is important to remember that God sent His Son, Jesus, to die so that we might have eternal life (the eternal gain). Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." If the gift is eternal life through Christ, what is the key that unlocks the gift? A personal relationship with God (through Jesus Christ) is the key that unlocks the gift of eternal life through salvation. And our relationship with people and how we relate to the things that He blessed us with is a reflection of our relationship with God. God values your soul more than any person or possession He will bless you with. God will never take anything from you without a plan to bless you with more in this lifetime. So, here's my journey of seemingly losing what I treasured the most, only to find a greater treasure that would change my life and all my relationships completely forever.

“Death is not the end. Death can never be the end. Death is the road. Life is the traveler. The Soul is the Guide” ~ Sri ChinmoyWe fear death because we don't know it. Imagine death a gift - a blessed state, free from the illusion of mortality, where the dead rejoice in sublime reunion with the Divine source, which created them. So to kill loses its ghastly power, as the temporal world is revealed to be the only hell and the departed come to know it as a dream from which they have finally been awakened.
