The way to heaven under the sun

20 August 2014, 14:01 Onyeji Dominic

"My pals, I hope that you will not live under the bridge in heaven; your portion will not be an uncompleted building in heaven. This I pray in Jesus name; Amen!" Uduh Chinedum said to his close friends in jungle. If we ask me, I will tell us that what he said here is known to the wise as "downright" imagination. I mean he was not wrong because the words came directly from left side of his "left" mind. Just an ordinary imagination outside "upright" thinking!

Uduh Chinedum, if I may ask! Where did you see heaven? What is a bridge? If you ask me, I will say that I see heaven in your mind, and the way to it is known to the wise as uphill. It means that the bridge is a mountain which has no room, house or space under it for anybody to live or dwell. 

One may think that I am cracking jokes here. I mean jokes are very good. I love things like fun, jesting, comedy and joke but the truth remains that I am not a joker in anyway.

I knew what I meant each time I used the term "uphill". If one does not know, please, let one goes to the wise and pay heed. They will tell one that there are hills everywhere in fantasy, and there is fire on the top of every mountain. The hills have sensitive steps while the fire is refiner to the wise and consumer to fools in realms of jungle. The steps are known to the wise as the way to heaven in human mind or fantasy world. It means that every mountain has way to heaven under the Sun.

So, one should prepare adequately because the way is not easy like Prof. Enyiyere and some other Nigerian authors taught in their textbooks. My candid advice here is that students should shop reading any textbook with the following titles: Mathematics Made Easy, Economics Made Easy and Government Made Easy.

I have to say all these because I am still on the way to heaven. I know where I started, and I know what I have gone through. I am talking or writing out of experience in wisdom and great insight. What I know is that there is no easy way to heaven. One should prepare to pass through hell if one was not born on the top of mountain with silver spoon in one's mouth. It is known to the wise as uphill struggle, and they described it as "survival of the fittest".

In addition, let me remind us that there is a gate somewhere. It is called "Crossover Gate". The owner has empty container for each personality, soul or figure that wishes to pass, cross or enter.

There are fountains and taps here and there. The containers are in sizes which include mugs, tumblers, glasses, crocks, jugs and what have you. One is "strictly expected to fill one's container before one is allowed to cross over to the other side.

So, my advice is that one should stop dreaming about Biafra if one's container is not filled to the brim. This is because the gate of crossover is not opened for empty-headed fools and downright mediocrities in limbo of downhill.
