"This is really just a bad dream."
"Hi Ray, we're sending you back, aged 23, to do it all better the next time!"
"By the way, I've uninvented the cat, they do not exist, and never have existed."
I would hope he would say the same thing Superman did when I reached his fortress of Solitude . . . Or Batman's Bat cave.
So you're the guy who thought I was just a figment of the imagination...
Did you bring the shine
Your in a safe place now.
You were right, Z. I purposely hid my existence from those like you who recognize my countless failings. I crave the adulation of sheep, not the company of lions.
It'll be nice if he/she/it said nothing, and that you'd immediately know all truth and be in a peaceful loving state. I do my utmost to escape the noise by going into the countryside or woods. I certainly wouldn't want Heaven to be like the noisy chatty shopping mall I can only hack spending an hour in tops.
I hesitated a few days before actually answering this question. I didn’t want to just drop a one-liner or be flippant.
Hi, Tom---it’s good to see you again. Sorry to cut our daily talk short earlier today, but I knew you were scheduled to come home this afternoon so I knew we could talk now.
I know you were concerned about some of the people you dialogue
with on Blurtit. Some of them are over there (pointing). It turns out they were actually seeking Me all their lives, but just didn’t realize it; so of course they are here. That look on their faces is “pleasant surprise.” They are feasting on the fruit of the tree of knowledge (Adam and Even never realized that the fruit is only efficacious if it is eaten with My permission.) Hey, an apple a day keeps the devil away, right? (Sorry, but you remember that on earth I seldom revealed my sense of humor---you will find it a much more relaxed environment here.)
I know you are will also concerned about the ones you do not see. Hardness of heart is a truly devastating spiritual disease, but all are given the “final option.” It will be a while before you can totally understand my justice and mercy, so not until then will you know of them.
And of course your pets are here---all the good that I created on earth---and everywhere else--- you will find here. They are aware of your arrival and are excited to see you. You will find that you had more pets than you actually knew---some were sent to you only for one-time comfort and help.
In the meantime, stroll around where you will. Your mansion---which I have designed specifically for you---is ready when you are.
We'll talk again later.
My hope is to live forever here on the earth. Therefore, it is my endeavor to make a good name with God. At the end I want him to keep his promise that he will write in his “book of remembrance” the names of those who fear him, and he will grant me the prospect of everlasting life. (Malachi 3:16; Revelation 3:5; 20:12-15)
god is a particle not a person.
You are the god you seek.
