The Accountant Angels

Talking about Angels and Heaven, I clearly recall that when I was but a child… I liked to imagine Heaven with its respective Angels

While we, the humble, sinful mortals, would be held on trial for every single moment of our fragile life, each one of us in particular. Nonetheless, we all would potentially deserve, or not, that grand prize, the ultimate goal, that much-coveted immense carrot, the same one that is permanently just a bit out of our grasp: the prize of the Eternal Salvation.

I imagined those millions of Accountant Angels, everywhere, and every conceivable place, at the same time, untiringly active, inside those paradisaical and majestic towers of heavenly offices.

Each single one of them, attired in a shiny white tunic and without a body below the waist. Lacking their inferior extremities, namely their legs and feet, I visualized them swiftly floating, and busily drifting, in and out of the offices, and of course, crowned with a halo of white light, delicately suspended above their angelic little heads.

These splendid beings of light, manifested themselves radiant and beaming… For they were scattered in the reign of The Eternal. They lived a happy and carefree immortal life, completely beyond of Good and Evil. Thus, each Angel would perpetually be monitoring their endless video screens, undyingly attentive, with that clarity and pureness, only achieved when one lacks the gift of a navel.
