PONDER on THIS for Friday, October 15th, 2010 by Betsy Otter Thompson in WALKING THROUGH ILLUSION

“Why are people convinced that their beliefs are so important? Do they assume that those beliefs will get them into heaven? And if those beliefs aren’t making them happy now, why do they think they will sometime later? My beliefs have gone through several radical changes – from a complete and absolute faith in the Church, to agnosticism, to a belief that love is the only power worthy of recognition. And frankly, none of the above made a particle of difference in terms of how my life was going. Life went according to what I accorded others. And you know what? I strongly suspect that, when I leave here, future happiness will have the same criterion.”

Betsy Otter Thompson, in “Walking Through Illusion”
