Some people are happy inside the church, some are happier outside. Those who prefer to stay outside should write Nature with a capital N. They should bless and venerate the Nature that composed mankind. That would leave a thin wall between them and those who are inside and write God with a capital G. If you knock, it can be heard on both sides. The disagreement is about the spelling of a word -- Thor Heyerdahl

Bullshit. The capitol G people think the universe cares about them and has to torture them. They also think that it is somehow immoral to investigate the workings of nature. The disagreement is about whether a thought loop is a good way to interpret the universe.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of allnothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

When God was asked to name himself he said My name is I AM. SHee did not say I am this or that: God said My name is I AM. Am = is = exist. God's scientific name is: Existence.

And we are not, cannot be, seperate from Existence. We are existence existing and knowing it exists.

And existence is all there is.

Relax; you're soaking in it!

You are awash in the highest pitch of lovegift!

Welcome to the eternal happydance of the dance-happy atoms.

While you were sleeping, another day crept onto your unguarded property - so you have another day to maximize the good and minimize the bad.

Finnegans, begin again!

The purpose of life is to be happy. Winning the great game of life means using the limited wits we were given to maximize the good and minimize the bad.

Pursue your happiness with every nerve and every second...with all mindfire!

Pay justice is crucial to happiness and survival for humans and their planet.

If you don't love life, then this pay justice message is not for you.
