In my last post [I Was Stuck in the Purgatory for 10 Years] I used the Purgatory to explain my path to a new stage of life. But what is the Purgatory?
Is the Purgatory an idea strictly reserved Catholics?
I decided to look up the Purgatory concept. I found that most beliefs have a concept much like the Purgatory. It is a process of purification.
In the old Egypt the pyramids had a chamber of purification and in Buddhism your whole life is a purification process.
In today’s society it is more and more common to search yourself and find peace. We write books and articles about how to become better individuals and how to be healthy and happy to spread the happiness we achieve.
I’m not to judge the Purgatory concept. I believe that it is up to you to decide what it means to you.
What do I make of the Purgatory?
Basically I see the Purgatory as a process of purification of both body and mind. It is a constant process we have to do to develop ourselves and to reach our life goals.
To get to another stage of my life I have to let go of the previous stage. I have to clean up my clutter and take my good experiences into the future.
There is a lesson to be learned at every stage of life and if we don’t learn that lesson we won’t be able to move on to the next stage.
What is the Purgatory to you? Is it a purification process that most people have?
Should we try to cleanse body and mind to become better individuals? What do you do?
Is self-development a process of purification?
