Most of us think of Heaven as being this place way off in the cosmos: the place we go to when we die. It’s the position that I just can’t seem to get to, or the situation I keep trying to experience and every time I get there somehow it escapes me. This is how we think of Heaven.
But what if Heaven is right here, right now, wherever you are in this moment, if you can see it? What if that’s the case? What if all this running I’ve been doing, trying to find my total peace and total happiness in this situation, in that situation is actually causing me to run away from my total peace, total happiness, and unbelievable abundance? What if there are incredible things trying to occur in my life and I’m blocking them by the way I see and approach the world? What if there is much more going on behind the scenes in my life than I realize? And what if everything is constantly occurring to try to improve my vision, so I can understand the fact that I’m in Heaven right now?
What if I could be so in touch with the universe that I could get the answer to whatever I wanted to know about anything, at any given time? What if my being so connected supplied just the right set of circumstances coming my way to achieve all the things that would bring me into that heavenly position that I’ve so longed for? What if I am a mini replica of the universe and there are higher realms within me I can visit in meditation? What if all it takes is for me to actually tap into myself and go deep enough to see this magical kingdom that’s been waiting for me all the time?
What if this is what’s going on with all of us? We’re in Heaven and we just don’t know it. Happiness beyond our wildest dreams is waiting on us. What if everything that’s happening is trying to get us to realize it? What if all the events in our lives are occurring in order for us to see the eternal through each situation? What if once we begin to meditate deeply on a regular basis, we see the light coming to us through all the events in our lives causing us to thoroughly enjoy every moment? What if when this occurs, life seems to become more and more incredible as we go along with unbelievable opportunities constantly coming our way? What if this makes us realize that even when a ‘bad’ thing occurs, it’s actually a good thing in the making? What if that good thing in the making is so good that other things have to leave in order for us to get to it? What if when you see life this way this is how it works for you? Heaven your highest good is right here right now and everywhere you go. What if when you don’t see life this way then it doesn’t work like this at all?
