after the body enclosing that spirit dies.
or Eternal Bliss....
Separated by a chasm terribly vast;
defying any attempt to transverse.
What reasonable person chooses eternal torment in an inescapable prison?
Particularly when mansions and gold or 72 virgins are on the table?
Zealots are grown in the same bullshit as everyone else; however, they believe themselves to be separate from the shit (or at least have the opportunity to be if only they do xyz).
Pascal's wager is a logic based response to the fear generated by belief in existence being ray based - a vector with a start point and no end or return to its source.
Religion teaches one direction, two destinations.
Birth is a lie we believe to forget our immortality.
Ray based eternity assumes that matter can be created,
just not destroyed.
Can god make a rock to big to lift?
Annihilation assumes that matter can both be created out of nothing and destroyed.
Otherwise it assumes that consciousness is nothing more than magic. Science being magic only to those lacking understanding.
Nothing truly is real or unreal. Moments are the ever persistent illusion of consciousness being aware of something outside the reference frame of self.

That moment - the one that keeps evaporating with each new line:
Lost forever, saved only by a memory - though not preserved.
Records nuanced, personally autographed.
Fixated on what never was,
But for a speck of imagined time.
flaunting it's power;
balanced by Nothing.

Not in Man.
Perhaps I'm confused...
I'm a man, should I not trust myself?
Never Trust Yourself!
Why, then should I trust you,
Expired credentials -
Threats veiled thinly,
donned as a disguise:
offered as proof.
Soul sleight of hand:
Who's best double-cross.
Form precedes message,
Buffeting against soul.
Until transparent -
The truth contained,
in every lie.
Trust only in what endures:
yet Something -
Echoes in the darkness.

I locked my side door this morning when I went to take a shower telling myself "I'm not paranoid, I just wouldn't want my dog to get out if someone opened the door trying to break in..." okay so I don't want my shit to get stolen as well if I'm being honest, but really - I'm not that attached to any material objects, it's mostly about the dog... a break in the observation of thought and then it hit me, I (and most of humanity) do not like sudden change. We want to slowly wade into the pool to acclimate instead of getting thrown in. Even slight changes in "one small area of life" have ripple effect into the rest of life and the universe. What you choose to focus on defines what you see - no brainer; however, most people don't realize that that applies to every action and choice they make whereby a different object of vision inherently brings about shifts in everything.
This leads back to the main goal of many humans: maintain the status quo. Keeping things the way they are is perceived as imperative to avoiding pain and suffering because we allow external things to define us as something quite set in stone. It's like our ego is a Jenga tower comprised of many things and relationships stacked upon each other, precariously balanced on the sole block at the bottom - your unwitting awareness. Each of the unexpected things that knock down our towers are Life shaking you awake to the reality - what and who you have believed yourself and life to be are all superfluous.
Losing is necessary for winning and both are matters of perspective. When you go with the flow, there is no losing or winning; only a permanent state of transfer. Being stripped of the illusory blanket of story you have wrapped yourself in, that list of set pieces and supporting actors you felt defined by - brings an awareness of your own awareness. No matter what happens and changes around you, you are still there, at the center. Accept this grounding awareness and you experience the river flowing around you, which also implies through you as you offer no resistance. A constant state of flow where there is no gain or loss simply experience of the ever present Now.
