How to Gain Eternal Life

Most of us have become so busy in working hard to fulfil our materialistic desires that we have forgotten the ultimate truth of life, which is that we are not going to remain in this world forever. God clearly tells us in his books that every living being in the universe has to taste death sometime. It is said that the eternal life is going to start after death, but the question is, have we done enough preparation for that life? Most of us are in such a massive debt of sins that we owe to God and those around us, that we are not able to find the solution. However, there is no need to lose hope, and all we need to do is correct our paths from this moment onwards.

    Have faith

    No matter what religion you belong to, you must have a strong faith in your God. However, it is very important that your faith is not completely blind. You should study about your religion as well as the other religions of the world, and after appropriate research; you should decide to adopt a religion. A faithful person believes that everything that happens in this world is the will of God. This faith will help you a great deal in difficult situations, because you will consider it all to be a test.

    Having enhanced your level of faith, you should develop a realisation within yourself about your bad deeds of the past. Once you are able to develop that realisation, chances are high that God will forgive you for your sins and you would be able to have an eternal life.
