Isn't this enough?
For those of us who enjoy the luxury of not living in an utter and complete hellhole, this finite time should be more than sufficient. It is, to my mind, grasping and greedy to seek solace in the beyond. We are already privileged with miracle enough. To those whose lot it is to suffer, I wish you the ability to enjoy what beauty you can find. But for those among us graced with the capacity for peace in our hearts and minds, this world, this wonder, is splendor beyond imagining.
