SOME SAY HEAVEN and hell are both right here on earth and you can certainly see why ... from the wars mankind perpetuates and has forced on innocents throughout the ages to the awe-inspiring beauty of the planet. And from the nurturing aspects of Mother Nature to her indifference when she casually shifts and an earthquake or tsunami causes enormous suffering.
When contemplating these opposing worlds represented by two words beginning with the letter "H", it is clear to see that existence is as rife with ups and downs as a seesaw in some bizarre playground. Most of us avoid the extremes and get stuck in the middle trying to stay on the upside.
While some fear fire and brimstone in the afterlife others envision angels and harps. But it is in the land of the living that good and evil really play themselves out. And while some folk have a knack for bringing hell down into heavenly places others do well at lifting heaven back up out of hell.
