For those who believe in God or even who just believes in life, I’ve come to the belief(too many belief in this sentence) God/the Universe is not conspiring against me at worst it does not care for me/us, thus I try to live life in a manner that if not optimistic at least neutral.

Who wants to go to heaven?

Published by Paulo Coelho on February 16, 2009 in Stories

A priest – who saw the devil in the pleasures of life – went to the town tavern and asked everyone there to attend church that evening. Everyone obeyed. With the church filled to the last pew, the priest roared out:

– Stop all this drinking! All those who want to go to heaven, raise their right hand!

The entire congregation raised their hand – everyone but Manoel, who was held by all to be a dignified man who fulfilled all his duties.

Surprised, the priest asked:

– And you, Manoel, don’t you want to go to heaven when you die?

– Of course I do. But I still haven’t experienced the life that God has given me, and you want to take it away from me already!
