Eight days ago, I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance. An Emergency Room physician told me I nearly bought the farm.
But it was not to be. Not this time. Not this farmer.
Let me tell you a little something about dying and The Farm.
First and foremost – DYING IS COMPLETELY SAFE!
And The Farm is home to every human being that ever existed, and will ever exist.
Where does that leave Heaven and Hell. Nowhere . . .
The existence of Heaven was created for children to lessen their fear of death. It was sublime poetry meant to lift the soul and soothe the spirit. And like Santa Claus, most kids who made it to adulthood, understood that although its presence was a myth, it was a beautiful myth, worth passing down to their children and their children’s children.
But then religion changed everything.
Today, most folks need to believe in Hell, because it’s easier to create eternal punishment than it is to embrace the concept of forgiveness in the present moment.
