Just a Thought

The pity is that EVERY moment of mercy, compassion, forgiveness, love is a moment in heaven. It is not important how many moments we have spent in hell, heaven awaits right NOW.
Jesse Kornbluth-- Swami Uptown

Yeah, you bet I wish it were my thought but it is one I needed right now. I've had a whole lot of moments in hell recently-- it's ok, I have friends there, they help, a lot. But it's hard. The Swami pushed me right smack dab into heaven with these two sentences.

All I have to do is stay there.

Well, for a little while at least-- but that's not the hard part.

The hard part is knowing that I am never really gone from either place, neither Heaven nor Hell, needed in both, learning in both, loving in both. In which one my heart lives and takes refuge that-- ah-- that is my choice.

It's like the difference between a demon and an angel-- it's always our choice. Not theirs. Pity the angels. Pity all symbols we have invested with living power in our lives. The razor line between fiction and fact is paper thin and illusive.

What exactly do you think the being called God is? And who is Jehovah? Look for an upcoming blog on the formation of beings called egregores-- but we are not blameless for actions of these symbols we have named and called god. The reality of the creator/steward of this cosmos we can not begin to corrupt but reality is very very mutable and we are so easily fooled when they bring in the clones. especially if we have cloned them ourselves.

And, where, do you ask, does the Undertaker's Daughter live? Is she in Heaven, is she in Hell, she's certainly not the Scarlet Pimpernel? It depends which place needs the most love. Simple as that.

What a crock! Hard, horribly as hard as that. I wish you an easier vocation.

I don't recommend political blogs very often, but Jesse Kornbluth's is different-- and when his wife takes over for him, it sings like Bach's Sanctus.
