THERE IS NO ROAD TO PEACE - THERE IS NO PATH TO HEAVEN"
There is nothing we need to do to be at peace with each other. Peace is here now. There is nothing we have to do to reach heaven. Heaven is here now. There is no road to peace or pathway to heaven. There is no righteous behavior or sacrifice needed, or any proper way to behave to get there. We're All Already Here Now..
THERE IS A ROAD TO HELL - IT STARTS IN HEAVEN
It gets easier to hear that direct connection when you stop listening to a voice, that claims to represent the will of the universe, confirmed by applauding nehumans (not evolved humans), that has gone through a chain of command riddled with RCI (Rectal Cranial Inversion) telling you how to get to heaven when that's right where you're standing. Those paths only lead away.
Led by well meaning, dedicated and righteous nehumans, each with their minds deeply concerned about the care and well being of "their people" and a deep love for "their Great Almighty God", each with the deepest faith that with God and with justice and righteousness on their side against the evil enemy, God will prevail... and they are somewhat right. God, the Universe, Nature will prevail, but VERY WOUNDED and not quite the heaven it deserved to be if the caretakers had done a better job.
THE UNIVERSE PONDERS AS THE EARTH STARTS TO COOL..
NO PATH BACK
Now's the time to quit complaining and searching, and turn up the music, celebrate now, and let the trailblazers of hell walk on alone. When they turn around and look over their shoulders and don’t see anyone following, they'll be lost, we won't.
Here's another idea;
They will see us with the prize box and watch us untie the ribbon they've been playing with. We will slowly lift up the lid and peek in. The trailblazers of hell will convince their followers to continue on while they do a little scouting. Their curiosity will draw them directly to the box so they can be the first ones to see what's inside and increase the control they have over their followers. (Life, the ultimate prize, doesn't come in a box.) That's when we grab them, throw them into the empty box, tie the box up tightly with their sacred ribbon and toss it into Lake Washington.
If it sinks, they are guilty of the manufacturing and distribution of guilt. If it doesn't sink, we'll wait till it does. Patience is a virtue.
I'm open to other methods of conflict resolution but it
would be hard to find one more fun and entertaining, although the idea
of pouring them onto concrete blocks and using them as roadblocks to keep others from
going down their road has it's appeal. It also avoids the risk of polluting the
lake. When their followers come back lost and looking for their leader to give them
direction, we will have them sign an unbreakable agreement. If they buy the beer
today we will show them the way to their leader tomorrow. (Since it is
always now and tomorrow never happens and they've just
out searching for what they already have, I'm sure they'll be gullible enough to
sign it.) So now with free beer forever, we will have delivered a major upgrade
to heaven. Now Showing.. "Your Life on Earth".. Here Now!.. Don't
miss it! Keep Smiling and watch your reflection. It always
feels good to see happy faces.
