Chapter Two, Part One: What Is Logic And Reason?

“Thy will be done as it is in heaven.” These words seem like a contradiction to our ears.

Why is it so hard to imagine that a heaven on Earth might be practical? Why does it seem incongruous for something practical to have anything to do with love and kindness and harmony between people? Do we not feel torn between what we feel is good and right, on the one hand, and what we think is practical, sensible, and logical, on the other. Somehow we think that we must be either spiritual and idealistic or rational and practical. We can’t really be both! And that’s why heaven seems so impractical, and practical things seem so far removed from any ideal world which we can envision or imagine.
