Feeling good about being on time short-circuits

feeling better in being timely

Feeling proud about being good under-cuts

feeling confident in being truthful

Self righteousness resulting from telling the truth

prevents self affirmation in being honest

Feeling shame about being naked limits

feeling pleasure even while clothed

Being ashamed of your body splits you

from wholeness of being embodied 

Finding vindication in getting even

closes the door to being hearted and caring

Finding security in being in control prevents

excitement inherent in letting go

Believing in immortality curtails the fun

of embracing mortality

Having forever deflates 

fullness of now

Imagining heaven after death

supplants faith necessary for present living,

that is, returning to Eden here

realizing joy before death
