Something to ponder....We have been otherworldly ever since we hit upon the devious trick of being religious, yes even “Christian”, at the expense of the earth.... Whenever life begins to become painful and oppressive, a person just leaps into the air with a bold kick and soars relieved and unencumbered into the air. A person leaps over the present, disdains the earth, is better than it, and has his easy eternal victories next to the temporal defeats.
