Let me ask though. How do you think this paradise will be? Coronas on the beach with sunshine every day?
I mean what is paradise that we could know that isn’t worldy? Is it not just a reflection of our inability to perceive paradise and communally construct it here that we reserve it for some fictional after life?
I mean. If there was a paradise. Their’d be no need to eat or excrete. The temperature would be just cool enough that we never get warm nor cold. We wouldn’t sweat. Everything would be balanced. We’d all be staring at purple grass and frolicking with the polycorns. I mean when does that snap and people just try killing each other to see what happens.
Hah. Silly nonsense.
Traditionally you cross the pearly gates and enter a city where everyone lives and you get to listen to jesus forever as your immature soul slowly gleams more and more of his infinite wisdom and you asymptote to having perfect peace within the self and with the world. Well the collective world of “good” souls that make it beyond the gate.
Exclusivity is inherently not a jesus thing.
Buddhism will get you on the right track for that in the real world.
Or you can just find a beach and have a few coronas on a sunny day and say you’ve known paradise.
Either way it’s gonna be borning, drugless, sexless, and probably non-lingual existence. Meh, transcient nonsense.
sorry I had a coffee this morning
