Well, something wiped out the dinosaurs. I wonder if they were having this conversation.
I found LeoVirgo's remarks about the Buddha interesting. thie Buddha got to heaven but wouldn't stay until all souls could enter. That resonates
with me every time I hear the whole concept of the rapture discussed, or people ascending to a better world and leaving the others to rot, basically.
Who wouldn't want to go to a better place and be spared all the suffering when and if the crap hits the fan. If I could step through a portal to a
better place of course I would want to. I probably would, unfortunately. I'd be too scared not to. But would that be the right thing to do. I say
I'm a follower of the teachings and a believer in Jesus Christ. What would Jesus do? What did Jesus in fact do? He asked that if possible, he be
spared the suffering about to befall him. But he accepted that might not be the right thing to do and in the end he stuck around so all of us could
be saved. So would it be right to go to a better place without doing all I could to make things better in this crap hole for the people stuck here
who don't yet have the option open to leave. What if I'm not the one ready to take the option? What if I didn't do what was necessary for growth
or ascension or whatever? I'd hope a selfless person who knows and understands would stick around and help me out.
I end my ramble by marveling, as I often do, at the story I heard about September 11 and how some person who could have gotten to safety instead
stayed to be with someone stuck in a wheelchair so that person wouldn't die alone. I'd like to think they are both in a better place now.
I'm stuck here and I appreciate that. I'm trying to be a positive person so that at least the tiny part of this existence I impact is noticeably
less crappy. At least until I hit menopause. If I feel a sense of foreboding or change at all, I have assume it might be that.
