Religion appears to be so simple to understand. Avoid the evils of life, like greed, arrogance and self love, and you will have a great future. This future is not about carnal pleasures that many seek. It is a future of becoming spirited, and joyous. It is a mind that is content and happy. This future may be eternity in Heaven, or heaven on earth.
But unfortunately most people live for the moment and seek the carnal pleasures of life, like money, big houses, drugs, sex, and power. These pleasures are only temporary, and will not satisfy our quest for true joy. Don’t get me wrong, big houses and riches are not evil by themselves, but many gain these temporary possessions by utilizing greed, arrogance, and self love. These are the wrong tools in gaining our ethereal possessions. Unfortunately, many religions incorporate our carnal pleasures in describing the after life. They expose the after life as floors paved with gold, servants that work for us, and the gardens of plentiful fruits that wait to be harvested. But again, as proven on earth, physical possessions do not bring upon happiness. It is the mind that is void of greed, arrogance, and self love that brings upon our happiness. It is this mind that brings upon God’s blessings of heaven on earth.
