Open+Letter+to+George+Carlin
by Ron Murdock -- Contributing Author [Email This Story]

"I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately." - George Carlin.

George, George, George. I almost went into shock when I read you had died. There comes a time when everyone passes on to whatever comes next after this plane of existence. I like to think you're still wowing them on some celestial stage. You were very astute on your observations on the human condition.

But I already want to level with something you said some time ago. You mentioned that if the earth was the only inhabited planet in the galaxies then the Universe aimed low and settled for less. It wasn't the Universe that did, it was us humans that kept aiming low and settling for less. I feel there is something out there that we can tap into and help us raise our sights.

You see, George, we're living on a planet just the right distance from the sun. Not too far nor too close to it. If utilized right, this planet of ours can supply our needs beyond our wildest dreams. But it seems the powers to be seem to have a tight grip on the distribution end of things.

While your comments on organized religion have been bang on the money on its rigid and formal way of doing things, a lot of us are bypassing the middleman - in this case priests - to go direct to the Source. One no longer has to be spiritually correct or fit into a pre made form of what a believer should or ought to be.

George. I know it's easy to get cynical or jaded about the human condition but if 7 billion of us connect with the Source, who knows what can happen.
