Don’t tell me I’ll go to heaven when I die; if I lead a righteous life. I’m already there. We all are.

What? Yes, that’s right, you heard me.

I am a human ‘being’, not a human ‘doing’.

Sometimes I am a human ‘doing’.

But really.

What could be more heavenly than being defined at birth as a human – being… With nothing more required than that, if you choose… Just, ‘being’…

And don’t say, “An angel!” I would say, “A bird of some sort!”

P.S. Ever been annoyed at crows loudly scolding each other? Feed ’em! They’re hungry! Cat food works.

To be defined as a human ‘being’….

Nice. Life is good.

Pretty funny stuff. It sums up the fundamentalist viewpoint pretty well. It illustrates, for me, how endemic this kind of thinking is in our country – in our world, even? It’s kind of the mandate for institutionalized religion & spirituality, don’t you think? – to limit critical thinking, self-expression, etc.

Or substitute with the dogma of your choice.

Genesis 11:7  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
