religion and elevation levels

... as I try to make logical sense out of the material world,
first trained as a catholic, then expanding out to ideas from
the cold tibetan and warm krishna buddhist variations, it
has been a great awakening to see the basic view of reality
which underpins them all

... the idea of an invisible, eternal world, where good gods
and a good God, ultimately control all

... so we see a material world, which we call human existence,
but most sense there is something greater than this going on,
invisible to us, like hidden far away in some misty land beyond Time

... the near universal "belief in the invisible world" is
well established just by observation of human societies, they
all do it.... even pure voodoo is a belief in the invisible
world ... even hermits have little gods and goddesses they
talk to in their heads

... but back to elevation, it seems that the higher the
physical elevation of the society, the harsher the view
of life and the gods

... down in the warmth of india, it appears that religious
ceremonies are geared toward a celebration of life, and
just the happiness of pure existence
... that is sort of pro-reincarnation, since it gives the illusion
that being in the physical world is a good warm fuzzy thing

... but up in elevation, in the high himalayas, the religions
tend to be ratcheted toward getting the hell out of here, leaving
the cold time-limited thermodynamic atomic reality of the 3rd rock from the sun,
for a more pristine, eternal life in a higher universe, with a more
rarified air and pleasures
... that is sort of anti-reincarnation, since it portrays human
life as a crummy mortal blip on the screen of eternity, and
is something to be transcended

... what's the truth?

... I'm for getting my soul out of here, but I may be wrong.
... women tend to consider that selfish behavior, but I'm not
here to save souls, so what can I say?

... what is great, is that the cosmos gives us the choice, a free will

... its scarier than sh*t, when you really think about it
