I feel incredibly grateful to be part of a religion with very little formal scripture (but plenty of commentary) on what the afterlife looks like. I appreciate immensely that this religion focuses on this life. I do good deeds for the sake of this present world, not to prove my worth for an afterlife. I love my family for the sake of this life’s love, not to increase my chance of being judged to enter a heaven.
This might not be a groundbreaking post, but I’m just feeling grateful and wanted to share. I hope you too find light in this empty space of Judaism.
