In The End What is the Sum Total?

Nothing in life comes without give and take, and sacrifice. All of life moves in a transition from birth to death. In between we give and we receive both pleasure and pain.  How we experience these things and how we use them in our life determines the karma we are either taking on or extinguishing in this life and all the lives to come.  Life has a perfect accounting system. Nothing goes unnoticed and everything gets balanced. The dramas and striving of life, with all its ups and downs, always brings us back to the status quo; where are you now? Who are you being and what is this all about?  The irony of life is that for all our outward striving and drama in the end the sum total always add up to zero. We take none of them with us when we depart this world. What we do take is the karma of our experiences. How we use these experiences defines our next reincarnate. If life hands you a difficult problem and you face it with compassion and understanding you create harmony and not discord. It is not the problem you take with you when you depart this world, but the virtue of compassion and this will assist you in this life and all the others lives to come.

To overcome the obstacles in life you need to learn how to Soul Walk. It is not a religious path, but it is a path of faith. It is about walking consciously with constant devotion towards making you a better person and the world a better place. It is about never forgetting the importance of health; body, mind and soul. It is an understanding that the path may take a few zigs and zags and a few divergences along the way. Just remember from here to there is never a straight line. You may lose your way, but if you come back to the source, your soul, clarity will be your guide and you will know who you are and exactly where you are going. Keep walking the path and in this you will be wise. Because in the end the sum total always equals zero.  You take none of this with you when you depart this world except the karma you have created.
