Personal Religion

Somewhere along the way...

religion made a turn and so did you!

    As long as there are humans there will be religion because to be human is to search, to struggle, and to strive.  People have thought that the purpose of religion is to get rid of the human, get past it, go beyond it, and exchange it for something  better.  And there’s the rub—what they think is “better”!  Their substitutes for the human are such things as “eternal bliss” and “nirvana.”  The singular characteristic of these “states” is that they would rid us of the very things that make life worth living.  They would rid humanity of humanity.  In heaven it’s hard to be yourself!
