H is for Heaven

my idea of Heaven

 

Heaven is not in the hereafter.

Heaven is in the here and now.

Right Here. Right Now.

 

if i walk mindfully, i can glimpse Heaven.

if i peel the potatoes knowing the Presence of God, i can glimpse Heaven.

if i wash up, just wash up, i can touch Heaven.

 

when i sit with my friend and we truly listen to one another, together we take a small step into the Kingdom of God.

if i can sit with my enemy and we can truly listen to one another, together we can take a great leap into Heaven.

 

Heaven is a place of inward stillness, where the Presence of God is known, where all are aware of the Love of God.

It is not a quiet place, It is not an empty place, and It is definitely not a lonely place. Everyone is there, even if many of them don’t know it yet.

if i can reach out to anyone and everyone i meet and show God’s Love for them, together we can take a small step towards Heaven.
