"In Heaven we will be judged according to our level of holiness"

“Spirituality and spiritual entities are not inherently superior or better than material ones.

Good and evil can both be spiritual or physical.

Although some religious groups tend to equate spiritual with good, matter and body with evil, it is obviously untrue.

There can be ex­tremely evil spiritual worlds, from Nazi ideology to every­day cruelty.

Avarice and hatred are spiritual qualities, but surely not good ones.

The body, too, may become a vehicle for all kinds of evil, just because the spirit within it is evil.

However, it, too, can be, both in itself and as a tool, a means to very admirable things.

A great philosopher is not inherently superior to the long-distance runner, al­though societies may differ in favoring one or the other.

Likewise, in Heaven they will be judged according to their attitude to holiness, rather than according to their mental or physical prowess.”
