The Afterlife is not what you think it is.
Most likely you will just be reborn on earth if you don't find your true purpose, most people after finding their true purpose though, find that it is here on earth.
Unless you're one of those sleezy monks in tibet who are all like>fugg dis earth mon im out and fugg trying to further evolution fugggg
Yes, that's how they sound. Don't ever become a monk it's the slothiest religion there is, I'd say you can and should learn to justify all your actions if you actually want to go where you want to go (nirvana/heaven) instead of hell on earth or what is worse, this can be easily done through the 7 cardinal sins/virtues, but those shouldn't be your alpha omega, you should just try to justify your actions and become pure both in mind and in will, noone will punish you for thinking sinfully, but only for acting sinfully.
It's more to train your brain into the train of thought that is purity.>To the pure, all things are
pure; to the base, all things are base.
And what I mean by this is, if you think earth is living hell, it is living hell, if you think it can only get worse, the law of murphy.
But if you think of the positivity in life and think of it as heaven, surely positivity will come to you. Albeit as much negativity will come your way, but look for the positivity in the negativity and you win.
The Kybalion is what I would recommend for you to read after you've 'perfected' gnosis, atleast the part in the Field Manual.
Or actually scratch that, this is a pretty good 'beginners library' But start with gnosis/meditation/Psychonautia as this is the fun part, and as soon as you're on the track with that, these texts will probably resonate more within you.https://www.mediafire.com/folder/5jbvucjd1cyq8/
