What if........

What if you could get off this planet forever.  Would you go?  Maybe not.

 Tonight, A friend, whose opinion I respect, told me that such an attitude seemed sort of selfish.
 I can see now, with a clarity I've never before seen, that if given the chance, I'd rather come back and help, if given the assurances needed that to help would be my destiny.  I'd do that in the twinkling of an eye.

Buddhist call such a being a Bodhisattva.

Whatever it's called, it's certainly a chance to help.  To me that is the best existence.
