A white feather is said to indicate the presence of an angel. The recent presence. Should there be proof to the contrary I would like to see it. Whether you believe in angels or whether you don’t is not really what matters, the importance of believing in something is what is helpful to your cause – i.e. your life. If you are still of the opinion that those who choose to believe in a ‘greater’ something are delusional, you should perhaps ask them about their illusions. If they have none – if they do not subscribe to illusion in the first place – then it is not possible for them to be delusional about a ‘greater’ something or any ‘other’ something, either, when all is considered.
An angel’s reputation is for ‘watching over’. For protecting. It is not a reputation that an angel takes lightly. That is for a good reason. Where protection is necessary, angels have their purpose. If there should be a person on this planet that does not need protection from time to time, that would surprise me. It would probably also delight me. It is occasionally vital to feel delighted. It is also occasionally vital to feel safe.
There is a good reason, too, to have guardians for what is commonly referred to on Earth as ‘Hell’. Hell has some very valuable assets. Should people be disinclined to believe that that is the case, they should visit it. They may be pleasantly surprised by what they find behind its doors. Mind you, not just anyone can walk through its doors. As for ‘Heaven’, there is a passcode for Hell. Naturally if you fail to fit the passcode, you cannot gain entry and you are automatically redirected back to Heaven. Nevermind. When given the choice, that is where most chose to go.
