Sky Muffins

(Before It's News)

“Do you believe in sky muffins?” I asked a friend recently.

“What are sky muffins?” he asked.

“Sky muffins are muffins that fall out of the sky,” I explained matter-of-factly, as if it were a regular atmospheric phenomenon like rain or snow.

“Oh, then I guess I don’t,” he said flatly, as if muffins falling from the sky sounded suspiciously like a “heavenly” event and must be banished from his mind immediately.  It’s this ferocious denial of all that exists beyond science, beyond reason, which seems to define so much of modern thinking … often to the detriment of the thinkers.  Minds are snapped shut at the mere mention of anything that sounds even vaguely mystical, religious, or otherworldly, designating these realms to the hangers-on of supposedly dead philosophies.  While all the deniers drown in so-called “Reality,” however, there are still many whose heads are tilted towards the Heavens.

 I am one such person.  Therefore, I decided to follow (in my mind) the image of sky muffins falling out of the sky.  I decided that the sky muffins are baked by Heavenly bakers, with secret ingredients that cannot be found on Earth.  These ingredients are known to produce miraculous effects, so the muffins themselves are an episode in straying miracles… miracles in dough which are dropped out of Heaven and fall to the Earth.  

I can almost see the Sky Muffins, falling gently from the sky, and I lift up my arms to catch as many as I can.
