Our perception of our world and our existence determines which side of our brain is dominant.
If our life is focused on the physical, we will spend much of our life as followers. Many will focus on fashion trends, the neighbor’s new car, a mansion in an elite section of town, jewelry, the body of women, etc. It is a life lived based upon what you can see. This perception is very limited and is like a tight skin that limits our life and our opportunities. None of the things are transferable to Heaven.
If our life is focused upon the unseen – things which involve genuine love for others, our focus will be broad. Faith and love are both about living outside the body. In this realm we don’t worry about things. We put one foot in front of the other as we walk one step closer to Heaven. We look forward and outward – not focusing on just the path in front of us but taking in the full view. We don’t rehearse what we will say, but instead live in the moment and trust in God to find the words for us to speak. These things are transferable to heaven.
“No man can serve two masters: for he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not life more than meat, and the body than raiment.” (Matthew 6:24-25)
