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?

Enjoy Every Moment
Feeling emotionally raw at the moment, having just returned from a day of honoring my friend Delane Lipka. I had written about another extraordinary day in a previous Beliefnet article called In the Garden of Eden that described a gathering of kindred spirits that had been organized by Delane. For d

Cardia-versary
This morning marks 3 months since I experienced the kind of pain that cracks you open and has you revealing the emotional viscera that had long lay dormant. Literally at this moment, I was captured by the symptoms of a heart attack- searing heart burn pain, jaw tightness and wringing wet sweats. I s

Cosmic Coincidence
My definition of cosmic coincidence are those events that have me shaking my head in bewildered awe, asking "What are the chances that such a thing could happen?"  My answer is always the same. "100%, since it occurred." It is that encounter with just the right person, hearing a song on the radio r

Transformation Takes Determination
As I was on my daily walk today, decked out in my navy blue t-shirt with the word TRANSFORM scripted on the front of it, it occurred to me that if I want to transform any aspect of my life, there are several essential ingredients. 1-Quoting Joe Jackson "You can't get what you want, til you know
