If thats the case well pick a belief system that will benefit you EVEN if there is no God/Source or hearafter.

Ive personally got a lot out of Ester Hicks teaching ( after a somewhat slow start). My rationale for studying her is that even if there is no source the teaching gives methods to move your thoughts and thus emotions to a better place.This improves life in the now IRRESPECTIVE of future results.

I win both ways.....i generally feel better about life now AND source will improve my future. If the latters not true ( and i believe it is) then im still better off.

There is actually only now anyway.The future NEVER exists,because when we get to it...its now.

So i do my damndest to enjoy now...cos nows where its at.

what if this is all there is?

Considering that there is only here and now, this is all there is.

perhaps this is "as good as it gets." what next?

As long as you're happy and feeling good in the eternal moment of now, does it really matter? An experience of feeling good now can only generate more good feelings in the same now moment, unless your mind gets in the way...

You're the boss, so what you say and what you desire next goes 100%. Depending on how much you've remembered, either:

a) do you best to believe without doubt
b) know beyond belief and without a shadow of doubt

That you are the creator of your reality and as such, whatever you say you know prefer must come about. Then sit back and allow it to happen. Resistance is futile (the 'Borg' knew this) 8-)

Of course, we can always make it more complicated if that's our desire, but it's really very simple...

To me, "As good as it gets" means that you are feeling love and happiness 24 hours a day seven days a week because you know that this is all there is. What comes next is helping your fellow humans feel bliss all day everyday.
Thank You.

do you feel this way, Brian? truthfully?

(07 Dec '10, 09:49) mr.g

I practice smiling moment to moment, I wake up thankful, and go to bed thankful.

(07 Dec '10, 10:15) Brian

I agree with Brian, happiness can be practised,or at least the thoughts that lead to it can.

(07 Dec '10, 16:27) Monty Riviera

What's so great about happiness and bliss? Isn't there something more true than fleeting emotions? Is there something true at all?

(09 Dec '10, 01:08) Hu Ra

I wonder the same thing.

(09 Dec '10, 03:23) mr.g

Never the less, this is "as good as it gets" right here right now. If you don't want the bliss you still have to Be the change you want to see in this world.

if this is all there is, if this is as good as it gets, then by definition, "what happens next" would have to be this.

Then, so be it! Who wants to know? Our journey will come to an end, sooner, or later, and when we get to that point, we will know, or will never know if this is all there is?

this doesn't seem true, because thoughts that i don't want intrude upon my focus and process of deliberate thinking.

(09 Dec '10, 03:26) mr.g

that happens to all of us and if truly not wanted you use your will to refocus

I don't think you can use the phrase 'This is as good as it gets' to a universe that is always expanding.

Our life on earth is geared so that we are always launching new desires, in most cases, the next one building on the previous one. That is the manifestation of the previous desire creates a whole new reality which forms the basis for new desires.

If this process is never ending, then we will never be fully satisfied and in my opinion that means that it always gets better and better as long as we make an effort to align with our desires.

can you demonstrate to me the proof of the statement "universe that is always expanding" ? what is it like for something to get better and better? does this apply to the seeming decay of the human body and the experiences that accompany the decay process?

(09 Dec '10, 03:29) mr.g

The proof that the universe is always expanding is all around you. All the new technology/advances and catastrophes on earth is evidence that the universe is constantly expanding as a result of new human desires/thoughts. The manifestation process is a skill that is developed over time by manifesting desire after desire. The more you practice the manifestation process, the better you get and the easier it becomes for you to get things you want even though you know that there is never going to be an end to desiring.

(09 Dec '10, 13:11) Pink Diamond

The seeming decay of the human body is a result of what we attract as a result of our resistance (negative emotions) which we keep accumulating over the years, making no effort to feel better. It is all fully reversible. Nothing is set in stone in this universe, it is only in our minds.
