Heaven On Earth

 

 

“Imagine, will you….Heaven On Earth For Real.”

These are the words that are on my friend Tambra Harck’s Facebook page. I think about it a lot since I believe that we create our own vision/version in our vivid imaginations. One of my favorite songs on the topic, sung by Mary Chapin Carpenter called In My Heaven offers a view that I would love to experience when my time comes. I have long been fascinated with what happens when we pass over from this realm to the next, wherever, whatever that is. The God of my understanding welcomes all, regardless of spiritual orientation or practice. There is no need to earn our place there, just as there was no need to earn our birth. Love is the law of the ‘land’ in my heaven. No violence, no harm to anyone or anything, nor justification for these acts. Free of hatred. No limits on love regardless of gender or sexual preference. Respect for the planet from which we came. Kindness prevails. We recognize that we are each a Divine creation, worthy of love simply by virtue of our Being-ness. Healing from toxicity of destructive beliefs. Living out our deepest heart’s longings and desires. Seeing through the lenses of learning, without judging the choices we made to get from where we were to where we are. A feeling of belonging to a tribe of kindred spirits. Knowing that love is never wasted. Forgiveness for choices made and actions taken unconsciously. Surrender to what is, rather than resisting it. Compassion for self and others. Trusting that all is well. I know that I need not wait to ‘leave the building’ in order to embrace this vision. I claim it as my here are now reality.

What is your idea of Heaven on Earth?

What's My Motivation?
In the car today, which is where I sometimes do some of my best thinking, I was considering why one of my intentions/goals is to interview Oprah and Ellen (not just be interviewed BY them). I attempted to justify my desire by saying that they are self made (with support) women, that they built thei

Betwixt and Between
I had an interesting series of events over the past few days after writing a blog entry for The Huffington Post. It was called Why I Am Proud To Be A Total B*TCH!  As I was typing the words, I had a bit of trepidation come up and a sense of uh oh, should I be writing these words and validating wha

Child's Play
I've been thinking a lot lately about my childhood experiences, almost in a life review format. Chalk it up to turning 56 in a few weeks. I grew up in a two parent household, with a younger sister born 2 1/2 years afterward,  so I had some time with them and with my grandmother as an 'only child'

Sleepiphany
This being a writer brings with it a penchant for word mash-ups and unique configurations. Many in my life share that talent. Yesterday while perusing Facebook, I noticed a term coined by a fellow wordsmith Shawn Allen. He was commenting on having taken a nap and then awakened with what he referred

Love Poems to God
Words come from a Divine Source, as far as I am concerned. since my writing (as if does for other wordsmiths) 'writes me'.  It flows through me and not from me. There are times when I have looked back at journal entries or articles I have penned over the years and think "Who wrote this?  I don't r
