Random Thought Spot #2: Is This World Paradise or a State of Exile?

Is this world paradise? Our one true home? Or is it itself a state of exile? Banishment from something else?

I would guess in this universe of shades and nuance it falls somewhere in between. A home away from home if you will. Half dust, half unutterable light.

We must not fall prey to our major monotheistic religions with their mythologies of the fall, of renunciation. Nor should we go the way of our materialists and atheists who in their finely-tuned prisons of logic have locked themselves into self-fulfilling prophecies of being heirs to nothingness.

Being here is a tenuous balancing act. I don’t want to fall from the ridge.
