    Nope, but I have faith in the future and hope in humanity.


    "The concept of an afterlife is inhumane and immoral. Belief in the continuation of your "soul" or consciousness after death is wishful thinking. Belief in an afterlife devalues the one life that actually exists: this one."


    Cheers!

    Ode to Elvis

    when live sounded like evil
    I found freedom in your name

    freedom in the literacy of your art

    such presidence

    get's and got lost and found

    to those of perception
    that your greatness
    was an honor for
    behavioral literacy!!

    I will live believing that people care
    to make and get words smart

    me a poet in many names
    have loved your presidency.

    Any image of Heaven so far is a humanly described concept, and obviously your concept of an afterlife is inhumane and immoral. That is the picture you have received or made for yourself.
    I don't know what it will be like either, but I trust in God to deliver. It is not like buying a house and deciding whether you will buy it or not. Life after death is a gift, and you will accept it whether you want it or not.

    Have you thumbed through the pages of the "Book of Life" to see if your name is written therein?

    My Lord hasn't asked me to do that sorry. I'm a Christian, a follower of the Lord Jesus not a Desiderata follower.

    Jesus never forced his teachings on anyone.

    Vanity of Vanities

    What shall we do, you and I,
    when time no longer passes by?

    Chasing eternity for nobler things,
    songs of ascent, of which Solomon sings.
    Escaping the path, from which we are bound.
    Like the Scarab who dances round and round?

    What shall we do, you and I,
    when time no longer passes by?

    Timeless, shapeless, and seemingly callous,
    the Ticketmaster of Pullman’s Palace.
    The Humanae Jovita conductor roared,
    “Last call…all aboard!”

    Men of man’s childish prattle
    of rising dragons and fruitless battle.
    A basic substance so longed for
    but bound by perspectives of one or more.

    What shall we do, you and I,
    when time no longer passes by?

    Who in the dickens knows the intention of chimes?
    What can you bear again, again, and innumerable times?
    The distance we travel to the point of rest,
    a reciprocal balance for those who are blessed.

    Joie de vivre is in all things,
    yet hearts cry as the pendulum swings.
    Cyclical patterns for an ultimate aim.
    All hurried for what, more of the same?

    What shall we do, you and I,
    when time no longer passes by?

    Were you implying I had? I'm allowed to be zealous for my Lord. I don't want any to be left behind. I am standing up for humanity. Do you feel like this too?

    Teasing out a false beliefs.

    His disciples said to him, "When will the kingdom come?"
    "It will not come by watching for it. It will not be said, 'Look, here!' or 'Look, there!' Rather, the Father's kingdom is spread out upon the earth, and people don't see it."


    Me, left behind? Well, I gazed into the abyss, the abyss swallowed me whole. And then I knew ’twas I, who would not taste death.

    "Swallowed whole by an abyss", Christ where do these images come from? Magic mushrooms and LSD cause these sort of mind altering experiences. Were you doing drugs?

    I am spread upon the Earth, in a far flung land down under. OK
