There is an apocryphal story of a man who went to heaven and not long thereafter committed suicide. At first the absolute perfection of heaven was intoxicating. He made a hole-in-one with every golf swing, won every card game and tripled his money on every stock trade. This perfection soon became a curse; he became so oppressively bored, he could no longer take it. Even the people in heaven became difficult to deal with they were all “so perfect.” Perhaps this is why Billy Joel sings, “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints…” Even in heaven you need a little contrast, also known as polarity.
