Heaven is a bit like Yorkshire.
In that, everyone wants to go there and each religion has its version of paradise.
They just have different routes of getting there.
For example, if you were going to the splendiferous Yorkshire Dales from London, you’d go straight up the M1.
Likewise, if you were heading over from Manchester, you’d nip over the Pennines on the eastbound M62.
But, if someone from London said to someone from Manchester, the best way to get to the Nirvana of the Yorkshire Moors, is to get on the M56 heading west, drive south down the M6 to London, then up the M1, (adding about 400 miles to the journey), you’d politely tell them that you knew a better way. A better way for you, that is.
Obviously, a Mancunian should be mindful of not advising a Londoner that the best way to the celestial magnificence of Whitby is to drive up the M6, then across on the M62. It’s just not in their best interests.
So, whether you’re heading to the Valhalla of Yorkshire from Cornwall or Cockermouth, it doesn’t matter which route you take, so long as you get here eventually. You’re sure to get a warm welcome.
The journey will have been worth it.
Oh, and by the way, I’m not religious, but I believe I’ll be going to the same place as you are. I just don’t know where that is. But I hope it’s like Yorkshire.
