This is a very good post.

Thank you for a wonderful post. Wonderful because I agree with most everything(if not all)you said? Not important :-)

At the end of the day...at the end of all the ways to ask a question, I remain grateful each and every time I run across someone who has the courage to address it.

A rose by any other name? It's the journey not the destination? No matter how we frame it...no matter at which stage of life we tackle it...I applaud you for reminding everyone to embrace the spirit of the question. Thank you!

As my simple way of giving back, I'd like to offer you (and all who read this) a free gift copy of my book. No strings attached...really! Just e-mail your request from my web site. Again, just my way of giving back (and keeping the conversation going.)

take care,

No Experts Needed: The Meaning of Life According to You!

Hi. I very much appreciate your post; especially about living in the moment. I have been surrounded by so many people, for so long, who believe they have a guardian angel and that they're headed for a great afterlife. Well, as you so clearly say, almost anything can happen to us from moment to moment. I see no proof that has the ring of truth for me that there will be an afterlife. I no longer believe any religion has a true transcendent link to a Devine being. I also believe that the judeo/christian tradition continues to slow the process of a new, emerging western culture. So many are so lonely and isolated. I think society could be structured so we are closer to one another and still have significant, negotiated relationships. For, example I think residual guilt still ruins a lot of "friends w/ benefits" relationships. What if committed couples engaged with other committed couples in ways they both agree on, Or they both engage a third, single individual. Can an emotional relationship remain faithful and perhaps even benefit from "couple dating." I don't know to be sure. But I don't think these kinds of possibilities will ever be given a fair evaluation by someone who has grown up with even a tacit tie to many religious traditions. Peace, Gus
