Natural disasters, wars, terorist autrocities, genecide,
Murders, rape, torture, abuse, it all happens to individuals, whatever the scale.

Where is hell? Where is heaven? Why do so many people believe these are places we go to when we die?
Lead a good life.. you go to Heaven?
Lead a bad life you go to Hell?

Might I dare suggest:
Lead a good life you MAKE Heaven!
Lead a bad life you MAKE Hell!

But it's not as easy as that, is it? Being good doesn't exclude you from the hell brought on by natural disasters, illness or others.

I know the answer, pretend everything is for a purpose and accept it, turn the other cheek, thank God he stole my daughter, and allowed my disabled child to live a reasonaly happy life.

Well you've got this far, and for somebody who usually says you can find happiness and have fun anyhow I guess a few are wondering where this is leading to. Have I decided to take up 'religion bashing' to excse the fact I can find no answers?

Truth is, it isn't going anywhere, I don't think a lot will change or has changed. It just makes me realise when I think things are at their worst, others are worse off than me!

Heaven and Hell are both on earth and in the afterlife, I know, I've got the teeshirt! Treasure every moment, live for the present... it will always be the present and things won't change a lot when you're dead. And yes, it is all in the mind (or soul or whatever you wish to call it).

Have Fun,

This rant was written to get a load of my chest, not to take a load of anybody's mind. I do not have all the answers, I am happy for those who think they do.

Thanks for your comments,

Que Sera Sera
