I want to challenge you, I want to tell you, I want to say to you that you need to start living in a way now that gets you ready for the life you’re going to live, and to do that you need to nourish yourself with food that comes from that next life. You need to nourish yourself with food that comes from the life that is to come. You need to convert your spiritual and your moral, and eventually even your physical, metabolisms to this new fuel called truth.
