With the approach of old age, men and women often discover truths in a philosophy or spiritual teaching that would have greatly helped them in conducting their lives, and they tell themselves that they have wasted their lives.
No, they must not say this.
Of course, it is better to see the light very early on to orient oneself in the right direction. But, even for someone who does not have long to live, it is not too late to learn the essential truths and to go deeply into themselves in order to leave the earth with a more enlightened consciousness.
If you have never learned to play a musical instrument, to pilot a helicopter, or even to sew and knit, you are not likely to begin when you are eighty-four. But it is never too late to understand the laws that govern the world of the soul and spirit.
Every effort you make in this direction will not only facilitate your entry into the light of the other world, but will allow you to prepare your next incarnation.
