Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

Since there is only one heaven, do you ever wonder

if teachers of all religions are close to all others?

It's one of those things that I often ponder

while even seeing them interacting like loving brothers.


Why not? They all teach about same love and peace

and they are nothing like all earthly preachers

promoting their religious identity with hate and caprice

while often calling one another godless creatures.


If god is one, why fuss over his many names,

and who cares about stories surrounding his landing

it's like putting the same picture in different frames

and hanging them on different walls of understanding.


Once mixed with human saliva all deities lose their true glory

for words sound so different in mouth and in heart

being either advertisements or a divine story

one to make us enlightened, the other to make us sound smart.


That's why I have no use for religious indoctrination

keeping an open mind about mysteries of being

thriving on my own spiritual liberation

and creating my own heaven with no sterile believing.
