Where do you think is Heaven

Is Heaven Here

Heaven should not be thought of as a place you’ll
ultimately arrive at once you leave this earthly existence.

Rather, it seems to me, that you’d want to
experience Heaven right here on Earth.

Earth itself is crammed with Heaven.
 But do you see Heaven in your daily life?

Do you feel as if you’re in a Heavenly world?
If the answer is no, then you’re out of balance.

You’ve probably made your physical world
the primary focus of your life, 
with little or no attention given to the Heavenly
part of your earthly existence.

When you place the larger part of your life
 energy on the material world, you are
generally in a continual state of worry
about your “stuff,” and you feel like you
never get ahead in the game of life. 
Virtually all of your mental energy is
 focused on what you have and don’t have. 
You assess your worth based on such
 material issues as what kind of automobile you 
drive or how fashionably you’re dressed.
 You may even feel inferior because 
other people have more stuff!

This imbalance between spiritual and
 material world usually means that 
indebtedness is a way of life.

When you’re out of balance, with life heavily
weighted down on the material 
side of the scale, you pay a hefty price.

The most serious consequence is that you
 see yourself in a false manner.

Your true essence is spiritual, rather than
physical, but you’re unable to recognize this.

Your infinite self is never born and never dies.

When you tip the balance scales in favour of the material world, you’re identifying
with an unstable ally that’s forever changing.

Your body, your possessions, your achievements
 and your finances are all ephemeral.

Heaven is a state of mind, not a location,
 since Spirit is everywhere and in 
everything. You can begin equalizing
your material and spiritual life by making 
a conscious decision to look for the unfolding
of Spirit in everything and everyone you encounter.

I personally do this by making an effort to look upon
 my world as if I were observing it through
lenses that filter out the form and all of
 the material aspects of what I’m seeing,
and I can only view the spiritual energy
 that allows what I’m noticing to exist.

Try putting on these imaginary magical lenses
 and see how different everything appears.
