I wrote this post in 2014. I still like it. I comment on our collective misunderstanding of the afterlife. At least, I hope I have a clue.
My impression of this life is that we take it far too seriously. Too much guilt. Too much obedience. Too much remorse.
We characterize the afterlife as a place to rest. Rest from what? Too much caution and pessimism? I hope we are reminded to celebrate, not apologize or retreat.
