If I ascend to heaven, You are there.
If I make my bed in Hell, You are there.
If God is present in both heaven and hell, does it make sense to prefer one over the other?
How do you understand “God,” “heaven,” and “hell”?
An invitation to engage with humanity’s Perennial Wisdom.
The Conversation is a “trialogue” between you and the posted teaching, between you and yourself as you seek to respond to the prompts accompanying each teaching, and between you and others who are moved to share their responses here. The Conversation is a way of internalizing Perennial Wisdom and allowing it to speak directly to you, and it is a way of connecting with others who are doing the same.
A new Conversation will begin each month. You are always welcome to join future Conversations.
Here are the rules for The Conversation:
- Be brief: say what you need to say, but not one word more.
- Be honest: say what must be said even if doing so is challenging.
- Be kind: say what you feel called to say with compassion for both yourself and, if you are commenting on the words of others, for those others who were bold enough to share their thoughts with you.
We hope you will find The Conversation stimulating, enlightening, thought-provoking, revealing, and maybe just a little challenging.
