Since most churches and temples of the world are most of the time empty here is a suggestion to fill them: allow supermarkets to be built or get installed in them and soon they will be filled by buyers. Some buyers might even be inspired to pray and thank God for their blessings. The parishes would receive rent payments from the shopkeepers and the merchants using the church. It is true that Jesus threw the merchants out of the temple. Perhaps there was already a precedent at his time.

Chapter 7 - Return To Mother Earth
Cousin Marthe's adaptation to her new condition was slow at first. She suffered three more attacks and hospitalizations. But progressively she found her good old self again, and today one can hear her once again exclaim in a cascade of laughter: "Heart attack? What heart attack? I have seen much worse than that in my life. My heart will just be another anatomical curiosity for the students, since it is now equipped with a pacemaker. They are going to have some fun finding all the hardware located in me, I assure you! I have resumed my normal life and have erased the whole affair from my mind. The time is not yet ripe for the devil to catch me. Death may strike at any moment. We all have to go sooner or later. But I am going to resist it as long as I can. I am just not going to give in; no sir!" And I looked at her in utter amazement. Her aged, heavy, over-weight, battered, cut-up, patched-up body seems to have wings and to be animated by the spirit of a young girl who has just discovered the beauty and joys of life. Her blue, irradiating eyes are full of sunshine, flowers, and stars. She seems to have caught a piece of paradise on Earth, of cosmic origin, of the cause of eternal life and resurrection. If this can be true of an individual, it can also apply to humanity. Social groups are living entities. They require a brain, a heart, a nervous system, a will to live, an objective, a dream, an ideal. What we need most at this juncture of evolution is leaders with vision, with eyes full of peace, goodness, and a beautiful future. Humanity needs common goals, lofty goals, joie de vivre, and a strong belief in a peaceful, wonderful future. The worst we could ever do would be to let go, to despair, and to lose control over ourselves. We need a Cousin Marthe at the helm of each government and of the world. And they should all work for the achievement of paradise on Earth.

The horizon leans forward,
Offering you space to place new steps of change.
Here, on the pulse of this fine day
You may have the courage
To look up and out upon me,
the Rock, the River, the Tree,
~ Maya Angelou
