I know we have many faiths here but good is good by any means. Here's a quote I like to consider:
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth
and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
A beautiful quote of Matthew.
My personal interpretation is that it's about good deeds and living a good life, as all you take with you, are your memories. Unchangeable, nothing to
So the last sentence would mean to me, the treasure is the experience and if you go to heaven and not fully experienced, your heart will be down on
Earth. Like, rather going back to gather more experience than live with it for eternity. Missing life on Earth.
It basically says for me: Live in the moment, be helpful to others, share happyness and feather sadness. Instead of collecting material things that
only hold back from growth.
I hope you don't mind me sharing a text that cut's into this, highlighting the words that remembered my about that rhyme.
I am Pagan, and I'm proud,
I say it long, and sing it loud!
Don't think I am a stereotype,
Ignore all the fuss and the hype.
I'm a Healer and a Witch,
It doesn't mean that I'm a bitch.
I try to help, to ease pain,
I love to dance in wind and rain.
When you are troubled, come to me,
I'll try me best to help, no fee!
Don't judge me by fears of the past,
A witchy curse I will not cast.
I will not hide myself away,
I want to change what people say.
I am Pagan, and I am here,
Not someone for you to fear.
Take some time , get to know me,
I don't bite, and this you'll see.
