Not a black sheep.

the problem w ur question is that u cant really answer it sufficiently without much more information. do we know what heaven is like? do u have experience of god? have you done anything extraordinary with your experience? fact is most people lead boring lives, y do u think evil is such a sellout in the morning news? people are “evil” bc they came into the world as sheep, following other senseless boring sheep – tempting eventually the wolves to eat them, whenever they stray to far from the “good” shepherd. wolves are not “evil” actually they are just doing what comes natural to them. the “good” shepherd is really a sheep who has learned to think like a wolf. of course there is also the wolf disguised as sheep…

what we consider “evil” is a necessary state of mind for us to consider alternative options. we are usually so comfortable at home, with all the amenities we presume that we only really need, until reality check hits us because it bounced. we dont know what real evil is until we go out and start exploring, evil is not just all the things that could go wrong, its also that tiny feeling that were missing the mark: were not getting anywhere with what were doing, were not satisfied w just success, and were not giving up unless stars come falling from the sky. we are determined to live our lives right, just like the way it was before, just like everybody else – determination therefore is evil. u chose ur unswerving path towards destruction…

well your question is not just about judeo-christian gods being impossible, the trick is to include at least enough of some of the other attributes of god in order to begin to understand him, because no attribute exists by itself. in fact god is plural, but from our perspective he is one. lets take a detour and talk about trees… why is it possible for trees to grow up strong and stout? it is most likely bc as they grow up they also grow down? u understand what it means to have a strong foundation? so much evil exists bc god is reaching down for support. its not that hard to visualize heaven as a mind field of faster than light instantaneous desire happening all at once, at current state of being would not be able to handle a fraction of such infinite pleasure bearing down on us, therefore god is also a preserving force protecting our characters from erosion by the ravages of time…

what would a tree wish for, that was harboring the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil? how about a tree of life? Or a fake plastic christmas tree? wouldnt you rather desire to be useful if you had the ability to think? What is your intellect good for if it did not have a purpose? the trees wish could be simpleminded, but secure: the present may not be able to solve the problems of the past, but steady progress can pave the way to a greener future. the three main believers for unity interpret the meaning of such progress in their own way: jews choose to learn, christians choose to love, and moslems choose to surrender. if you want one god then unity is ur piece of cake, u must carry at least one of those three qualities. if u want no god, except perhaps urself, but of course u will never want to call urself god then buddhist philosophy is the knowledge that provides the cake… i could go on about old school hinduism and many gods… or some standard atheist perspective of bypassing god by failing to define an acceptable god at all, which causes them to give themselves a pat in the back for proving that somehow their idea of god is unacceptable.

believing is only a matter of choosing, it seems like you have so many choices, that you might even end up w the worst possible choice if you so choose not to choose. in reality you are still just a limited thinking sheep, and u can never go beyond that fence, if the master sheep has ever built his fences right. your limitations are there to protect you so thtat you can have as much freedom as you want in as far as youre capable of freedom. dont get me wrong, i do believe in god, but as far as i can tell i have avoided discussing more important attributes. i think our primary task in this world is to discover how to become a master sheep, before moving on to the next sublevel of sheepdom. bible stories are just the garments in which the living word of god is garbed, if the bible were written in modern times then it would have modern clothes. but people forget the body is much more important, and more importantly the soul, but to be truly complete u must also know the mind… that is a quote from http://meetingtent.com in my own words.

how do you do?

well thats the scary thing im doing quite alright.

isnt that good?

if you say so but i tremble at the fact that things are now improving at a steady pace.

where do you think that would lead?

as far as these things go that would really mean many things.
i dont think i can very much care for being a sir monster much longer.
being the subject of many sermons in the background, i think ive heard enough.

just what is it do you think you’ve heard enough of?

i know for a fact that im about to change.
i might even like what is it i might change into but it might even be something nice.

so whats wrong w changing into something nice for a change?

well actually i am flat broke and i might not be able to afford such nice things.

so are you more afraid of being broke or of being nice?

it seems that i am more afraid of being nice bc i have been broke already so many times before.

well what if you were already nice, looking back how do you think you’ll feel?

terrible, i suppose and somewhat resentful.

what would you be resentful of?

i think i would regret not being nearly so afraid.
i would want to somewhat be more prepared.
truth is,
i know i really want to know more
about being nice before actually being nice.

well what if you could imagine what its like and its actually not so scary.

well that wouldnt be nice…


The Last Hero

i may not know much but i do know this, for whatever its worth, i want to make a wish. i dont know where it leads – i dont know where it goes, i pray to god for not so many foes. by the point of my sword, from my head to my toe, i vanquish those woes that haunts me to contrary.

standing stationary across the crossroads sublime, i make my choices one step at a time. i wade through the muck, the filth, and the grime. sometimes i find i even get ahead of myself.

so help me through this problem of mine: how to give an ending befitting the crime? should the answer be so deep and profound? can i glean some wisdom from the shine in your eyes? or will you bypass and appraise me just fine?

and so with worthless revenge i embark on my quest, to take back some sanity from the grips of divine, so now for this i wait sullen in line. could it be i was waiting for you all of this time? sometimes the problems just come – despite of the cost, so no cause can be lost.

stranger tidings happen more than once in a while, without need to remember, without need to much linger. moments like these we treasure – til it doesn’t matter much anymore. however careful, however slight, however different and talented right – the oracle lies bare for our pleasure or despair. without such dilemmas we suffer “no fair!”

with slight misgivings henceforth therefore i attempt practical invisibility, the magic of the moment surprisingly unclear to me. i have thought before to escape from here, but never did i hope to get away happy. to escape the fear that rules me, madly driving crazy to a place i hold so dear.

so the crime of too much time typing ends thus: as the hero bites out a chunk of roast, a piece of reality for the rest of us who boast, he thinks about the monster inside – as real as the dreams that define him. though he cannot lose, he is not so sure. so many things can happen but one thing he cannot endure: death without a purpose is meaningless and life without meaning to find a purpose is already death.

the heroes destiny would have to begin with a choice: to go through heaven or hell and back again, to find a way for others to do so as well. though fate may come to those who wait the true hero decides which fate to take. the hero is here so near and yet far, as close as the eyes and ear, finding the ways and means to reach you even in your worst daydreams.

yet he is only as good as your faith. he can only act on your behalf for as long as you believe, otherwise you are the monster he must fight and die for. the least of all heroes can conquer the distance of space, but the hero who also conquers himself is legendary. you are the king, wear your own crown, but your kingdom is not yours without the hero to give you a choice. so now king, go find your hero to slay the monster – find your treasure and rescue your queen!
