I do not believe that heaven and hell are places we go to when we die, or that heaven is above us and hell is below us. I believe they are something that we experience while we are here, on earth.
Hell on earth is experienced when we are separate from God, and is born of the ego, manifesting as fear. It is the state of anger, chaos, resentment or jealousy.
Heaven on earth is experienced when we are One with God, and is born of the sacred self, manifesting as love. It is the state of compassion, peace, acceptance and joy.
Heaven on earth is indeed something we can experience here, right now, with a shift in consciousness. If we are awake to see it, it is right before our eyes in this very moment.
You may have actually experienced it several times before, but either did not recognize it for what it was, or you have forgotten. It’s time to remember.
Heaven on earth is the moment that takes your breath away – a beautiful sunset or sunrise, a magnificent landscape, a view of the mountains or the ocean shore, or the feeling of a child’s hand slipped into yours.
When you can still yourself, quiet your mind and open your heart, Heaven is right there – in you, around you, as you.
