A song recently released, called Heaven, makes me wonder. When people hear the word heaven where does their mind take them? The word heaven, according to Dictionary.com is the abode of God, the angels, and the spirits of the righteous after death; the place or state of existence of the blessed after the mortal life. What is your idea of heaven? Is heaven the magic of your mind or a true place? Does anyone really know? There are no facts to consider but there are millennium of ideas and thoughts that have been expressed.
I believe that heaven and the Garden of Eden are synonymous. They are a place we go when our thoughts and actions and will are aligned with God’s. I have had periods of heaven in my life and hope to continue to achieve higher forms of consciousness in my forward movement through my spiritual quest. As long as I awaken each day with humility and childlike wonder and awe I expect to lose my human anchor and become pure spirit and at one with God.
The biggest problem I find in having heaven beyond my reach is that I am a very impatient person. I experience heaven whenever I lose myself and find satisfaction through helping others. I experience heaven whenever I immerse myself in nature. I find heaven whenever I spend time with my friends or family. I know God wants me to be happy, joyous and free. When I am being the person God intended me to be I am in heaven. Whenever I turn my will over to him and accept life on life’s terms I am in heaven. If you want to know heaven remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
