I am not at all concerned about the ‘next’ life. I am a little concerned that I am not concerned.
When I was a Christian Pastor it was not a concern. I cannot remember ever preaching the ‘Go to Heaven or Go to Hell’ sermon. Now that I am a Buddhist it is still not a concern.
Am I missing something? Or am I a naturally born dyed in the wool untrained and unenlightened Bodhisattva?
It just makes sense to me that worrying about this world and the beings in it is more important than worrying about getting into a better world after I die.
This story come in many flavours but the one I like goes like this…
3 youths decide to go a wandering. One day they find themselves up against a wall that stretches as far as they can see to the left right and up. Being naturally curious they begin to scale the wall.
