On Religion and Metaphysics

The Buddha teased his disciples over metaphysics. I laughed. Buddhism is the dharma and meditation, and nothing more.

"Jesus wept." I laughed. Metaphysics is simply beyond it.

Who cares about silly details like that? IS THERE BEER AND SEX IN HEAVEN?

Whether there is beer and sex in the clouds is still metaphysics.

What about humour? - do silly souls get to laugh at themselves?

Mark Twain said that there was no humour in heaven because there was no suffering in heaven, and I believe him.

Metaphysics is mere speculation and nothing more.
