Review ur life ! See if ur way of living has helped ! U cud even see if ur Sankeerthan and chanting God\\\'s name has really helped. The last phase of life is very important. Make it a revision and conclusion session ! On that depends ur next life !

Keep your mind free of Jealousy, Hatred, Enmity. Have pro-active nature and behavior to match your nature, Help the needy and weak to the extent possible. All this and many other such things will keep your mind in proper frame and that is what according to me is the real spiritual health.

Sir, the fact that you have attained this level of spritualty shows that you are already doing whta is required. Still there are some spritual endeavours that one can undertake. One such vrat which I can think of is Chandrayan Vrat. It does entail a high level of physical strain. I dont know much about it but I have heard that there are people who have authorised knowledge about it and this vrat should be done only under their guidance

Stop flattering gods. Stop all sankeertans and chanting god\'s name. God is not a megalomaniac like our politicians that he needs you to whine away his name all the time. Go do something that would be useful even according to god. Like keeping other persons around your age company and boosting their morale although they may not be as fit as you. I don\'t think god has sent you to earth just for you to chant his name.

Respected Sirjee, submit to Him, let him decide-
The soul of man is like water;
From Heaven it coeth
To Heaven it riseth
And then retuneth to earth,
Forever alternating.-GOETHE

By doing so you may derive mental peace but no guarantee for 5 yrs more.No relation between Kirtan and longivity.

Honsaji,
I am just treading behind you, 6 years younger. You are already spiritually grown and any further growth would be by imparting your wisdom to others. As Mr.Satish Kumar has pointed out, I don't think God needs any praise or sankeertan. These are adopted by those who would like to make money or become popular in the name of God. I wish you all the best and take care.
