A New Religion in a Book

Some folks believe
Most anything
That's written in a
Book.
Even if it's
Written by
A chef who cannot
Cook!

You can write
Of crazy things
Like gods up in the
Sky.
And folks will say
It must be true
'Cause books just never
Lie.

So, I am going to
Write a book
And I'll let you know right
Now:
I'm going to make a
Bundle
Let me show you
How.

I'll start a new
Religion
One with a brand-new
Look.
And like the other
Testaments
I'll write it in a
Book.

I'll make it really
Easy
I won't have any
Rules.
Just send me
Ten percent
Of all your money and your
Jewels.

The best part is my book
Will describe a
Palatial
Paradise.
And how a million
Buckaroos
Reserves
Eternity's
Surprise.

When you die.

I guess the important point it's not religion, "names",fanaticism...What is important is to be a good man and try to do the best thing in your day.
How to know that you are a good man?
Well, sometimes I use to ask it to myself.
It's not easy, it's a daily exercise.There are many question...
Are you patience enough, how much love have you cultivate in your heart?Can you feel beauty and love around you, can you see the light that exist for instance inside a single flower,and can you be thankful for it's beauty and perfume?Can you help someone even if this helps is a positive word?
Can you forgive yourself because you are not perfect, none is perfect, we are all in this journey to learn, and forgive others is so difficult,at least you have tried, just an effort, a start?So...you also can forgive yourself.
Some are learning faster than others but all are students in this life.
And so on...and so on...
Respect to yourself, respect to others ...you can try to bring peace and build the paradise inside your heart already in this life.

:) have a beautiful day there!
and please forgive this long comment!
