marge, there is a better place. i'm quite () sure of it.

i've spent most of my life, of course with all due respect only slightly more than half of yours, trying to find out the answers to the same stuff as the rest of us. where are we from, why are we here, where do we go, etc.

in analyzing this to the point of insanity, all i can say is that all religions are writer's perceptions of how to explain our lives. what pervades, though, is that we all do have this life energy (whatever that is that makes us alive), and a basic sense of right and wrong. those things cannot be denied, no matter how you deconstruct them in order to figure them out.

so, with that in mind, started to learn about the teachings of various religions, and found striking commonalities. one of them is that god is everywhere, and in everything. again, looking at it backwards, that means we all are god, or have him in us somewhere.

so, i started to think that maybe all of our life energies put back together is god as a whole. that's why it is taught that god is omnipotent. that when we die, we understand everything, and can then forgive and love everything wholly. because we can see/experience things from every point of view.

reality is merely a series of perceptions. what we see and are in our everyday lives. so all of our perceptions mashed back together is the true reality. in other words, god.
i hope i haven't lost you.

in any case, i don't know if it's a better "place", but i do know that we all come back together. so you, whatever it is that makes you , will go back to being one with yours that you have lost, and will be with those that are to come.

inluding pets, btw.

like steamboater said, the best place anyone can be is back together with their family and loved ones. so don't lose faith. relish every day that you have with those here, because soon enough all of us will really be at the same table, having a laugh and telling gw to try an irish coffee, already.


edited to add: ok, so i sound like a nutcase. but YOU try to explain it better, in your own words. (not you, pre se marge, but yous in general )

go ahead. try.


see, now who's crazy.




i feel better.
u explain it just fine, made good sense to me

Thank you all for the love, concerns and Prayers through the rough last two years. I think it is time to let this sticky topic go now.

I haven't entered the room as it's pretty crowded, what with BT standing on Elfies shoulders in high-heels and all. Rather, Marge, you know me, and how I feel about you. But my best recipes, both sweet and savory, are on your table, and more importantly, my best support. You have a lot of good freinds around here. You are a rich woman indeed. You are loved, as are all of your family. My greates hope for you is that your daughter in law, and your grandchildren will always remain as close as you can, and will see each other often. Cyber family is great, but there's nothing like a hug from one you love, in the flesh.

Seeeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

This room has been pretty quiet lately so I guess it is time to move on..
I will see Elf next week and ask her to remove her heels just for you. we will drive down to visit with Barbara and James.
Life does go on..ready for it or not.
