What A Fine Broad Kingdom....

In the world there are invisible ladders,leading step by step to the summit of heaven.There is a different ladder for every group, a different heaven for every path. Each one is ignorant of the other's condition in this wide kingdom which has no end or beginning.
This one is amazed at that one and wonders why he is happy,while that one is astonished at this one and asks why he is amazed.
God's earth is spacious.Every tree springs up from a certain soil.The leaves and boughs sing thanks to God:"What a fine, broad kingdom."
The nightingales hover around the fruiting blossom,calling, "Give us some of what you drink."
This discourse has no end.

    Its a long fight with no end, and its true that we all are ignorant, but the race will lead to hell not to heaven....
