Check out this funky, catchy song by blog member, Kryston Jones. I’m asking her if it can be one of the songs in consideration for the intro and outro of our radio show. What do you think, guys?
Now enjoy this three-part series on Heaven! It’s short, but sweet.
Me: Good morning.
Jamie: Good morning. Hello.
Erik: Hi, Mama.
Me: Hi, sweetie pie. What are you up to, no good?
Erik: Absolutely. If I were up to good, I wouldn’t be here.
Me: By the way, somebody told me that you were an astral incarnation. I totally don’t understand that. Do you spend most of your time in the astral plane—I didn’t even know there was one—you know, hanging out and helping people on Earth?
Erik: If you think about it, that’s another life in and of itself, so it’s one of our incarnations.
Me: Oh, so are you an astral incarnation?
Erik: We all are.
Me: Oh, I see. Okay. So what are you?
Jamie (laughing): I can’t do it the way he just did it.
Me (in a low sassy voice): Amazing. Like that?
Me: I can just see him doing that. So there’s no difference in where you are compared to where Aunt Denise is?
Me: Oh, okay.
Still clearly confused. Sigh.
Erik: That’s the astral plane, the Heaven plane, the multidimensional plane that’s different from the Earth plane. There are so many labels, it makes it confusing.
Me: Yeah, and I’m easily confused today. Oh, that reminds me.
I take a sip of coffee and this makes Jamie giggle. She sips her drink.
Me (holding up my travel mug): I love my new coffee cup. Contigo.
Jamie: Oh, that’s nice!
Erik: The advertisement was for free.
Me: There we go. It’s for free. I do not sponsor these coffee mug people. So, what kinds of things do you do in Heaven, Erik? Let’s talk about you and Heaven.
Erik: Besides gambling?
Me: Gambling? What are you talking about? For real?
Erik: What do I do in Heaven? I play cards, I gamble, and I ride fast motorcycles. What do you think I do in Heaven?
Me: I don’t know! I didn’t know you were a gambler.
Jamie cracks up, trying to talk.
Jamie: He’s setting off—I can’t do it.
She tries to compose herself.
Jamie: He says, “I also masturbate in Heaven.”
Me: Oh, no.
Jamie: That [visual] clip could be taken so many different ways!
Me: Oh, no!
Jamie: He’s just teasing.
Erik: I can do whatever I want here.
Me: Yeah, but what do you do, though?
Erik: You know when we sign up for a human life, we end up in a certain environment, right?
Me: Mm hm.
Erik: We’re kind of dense. Being human, we’re dense and get stuck to one place. You identify with your environment, your city, your state, your country. All of that influences who you are and where you go, really.
Erik: In Heaven, we don’t get to identify, “I’m on cloud number 7, and we have this kind of weather and this kind of identity and dut, dut, dut, dut, dut. It’s not like that. You get here; you’re you. So what do I like to do? I like to ride fast motorcycles. I can make that happen for me. I like to travel. I like to help people. I like the check the blog. I like to check on who’s looking at the blog. I like to haunt those people and make it real for them. That’s what I enjoy doing most of the time. And I don’t have a time constraint, either. We talk about this all the time. Time is not this linear spread. It’s kind of clumped and bumped all together, so what you think you can do in an hour, you know, you have this time limit and “Time’s up. Ding!” You can’t do it anymore. I don’t have that kind of constraint, so I can do whatever the hell I want in Heaven.
Jamie laughs at this last sentence.
Me (chuckling): That’s funny. Hey, that extra time would have come in handy with your tests in school, huh?
Erik: Big time. That’s so unfair that they still test children like that. It’s not right.
Me: I know. I’m against it!
Erik: That’s gotta go!
