    Last night i put on the tv and just managed to see a lady in a lifestyle programme say this...



    "Religion is for those who dont want to go to hell

    Spirituality is for those who have been there".

    ..............

    God Bless

    PS I place myself as amongst those who 'been to hell'.

    Hi Springwater. I like that quote. I'm with you on another thing.....been there, sometimes am still there, trying to crawl back out.

    Have to agree with you and I personally believe that Hell is on earth and not after we die. Spirituality means a lot. I've been to hell right here on earth-- some of the others of us have also. Spirituality gets me through but hell on earth is why many long to die to get the peace after dying.

    Im glad you like that saying..it struck a chord within me, as it did you.

    Julie thanks for your kind words. Although i dont know whether i deserve it completely..i do my share of raging at my brothers while i help out...but its an on going process of learning...to give freely..without any reservations...

    Gov't. and religion.... Jam you mentioned something about control and paying dues. Gov't. taxation is FORCED ,no choice. In religion thithing is voluntary, I attend a parish with almost 6,000 members. Only 819 contribute on a regular basis! Can't imagine what would happen if gov't had that low remittance on taxes!
