Hell in Yareah


Hell = nothing.

When I listen to somebody pronouncing this dreadful word, I always thought in the author Miguel de Unamuno. He was looking for God (and its opposite) during his life. He was scared of his atheism because he wanted to have eternal life. Then, he wrote ‘I’m not scared of the pains of hell, I’m scared of losing my individual conscience and to be nothing.’

However, some people are already nothing. When we lose our illusions, when we start to vegetate only waiting to consume another day, working and obeying rules we don’t understand. Then, we are nothing and we feel like dying.



Hell is loneliness. An adult idea of Heavens says it is an eternal feeling of being in God presence. Therefore, we would be eternally in company, in a new way we wouldn’t do alone.

If we don’t deserve this company, we would be in Hell.

I ask: How many people are walking alone now in our streets? And what is worst: How many deserve their hell?


John Glass:

To me, hell is a collective situation. I don’t believe in individual salvations. Society save or condemn together because we built our world together.

I wouldn’t be happy knowing my neighbors are condemned for eternity.


Michael J Metcalf:

Well, I think hell is here (and it’s a sentence of the New Testament). Full of pains and sadness, the incomplete world is ours. It’s necessary to work hardly to build a better society, to improve our behavior and to be better partners, helping to each other.

From Enlightenment, we are improved our technique but how about our Ethic? This is our bigger problem.

We are busy making money and buying things, we are busy discussing silly opinions and improving our status, but what we need (urgently) is to improve our Ethic to go out of this hell of wars and fighting.
