Even on a cloudy morning the view across Mill Hill from the Courthouse park is all you need. Why wish for a supernatural dimension when we've got this on our doorstep?
As an athiest I am occasionally asked how I can lead a purposeful life, usually with the implication that life without a God must be miserable and pointless. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Without divine supervision, we can be kind or selfless without the expectation of a reward. Without divine moral imperatives, we have to construct ethical codes ourselves, which are truly suited to today's problems.
But the best reward is giving up the idea of an afterlife. Once you've accepted that this life is all there is, then you can truly appreciate how short, fragile and unlikely it is.
So I'm going to sip my coffee under grey skies and make the most of the view knowing I'll meet get another shot at this. And I wouldn't want it any other way.
