You have heard about near-death experiences, and how beautiful they are, but you do not need to wait for death of the body in order to glimpse the something more you so desperately crave. Nor do you have to take it on faith, for faith is a poor substitute for actuality.
I offer you Heaven now, not some kind of mock-up, not some kind of fantasy world, not some kind of carrot to keep you going, but the real thing. All is included within you. Heaven is already a part of you, only you have pooh-poohed it. You have shooed away acknowledgement of it for fear that you would be taken as a fool or that you would be a fool. But it is foolishness not to acknowledge the existence of Heaven, and, furthermore, its existence within you.
Heaven is where I am. When your heart is stirred with Me, you have a hint of Heaven. But mostly you have no clue let alone hope that Heaven is imminent for you. Yet Heaven is available now.
You know that Heaven is not a physical place. So what is it then? It is something that occurs to you. In that sense, it takes place. Nothing takes place outside you. You are the interpreter of what goes on around you. You take life in, the way you would operate a cake decorating tool that pulls up the icing and dispenses it in different shapes. Put in the Heaven shaper, and you have Heaven cut out for you.
No two people experience the same event exactly the same. Your reflection recreates the events. You hold the event in your hand, as it were, and you see a piece of coal or you see a diamond or any of the possibilities in between.
Life is what you say it is. Life is what your mind says it is. Its value is what you say it is. Your experience is your interpretation of your experience.
Turn your eye of thought ever so slightly. This is an almost imperceptible switch in the angle you see from.
If you do not like all the events in your life right now, put in a different lens and start to see from a different angle. Remember, this is not tricking yourself. If you have been seeing less than Heaven, that was a trick. It was THE trick of your mind.
What have you set yourself up to see?
Have you been the fall guy for your thoughts?
You revolve the world. You spin it on one finger of thought. Now take Heaven in your other hand, and hold it in your palm.
Enter Heaven now. Nothing has to happen for Heaven to occur to you right now but for you to turn your attention there and look for it. In so doing, you raise your consciousness.
You have had clues to Heaven all along. You have seen it. You have experienced it. But you have not dwelt on it. Dwell on it a while.
Just as when you are hungry, your mind creates an apple. Before you get up and go to the refrigerator for it, you can just taste it and feel its juice running down your chin. Yummmmmm!
Just so, manifest Heaven first in your mind. Begin to taste it. Conceive of it. Conceive of life on earth with such inexpressible joy and wonder that you can hardly contain yourself. Consider what different thoughts you will have, and what your thoughts will ordain.
You haven't been anticipating Heaven, have you? Why not?
Now is time for you to start savoring Heaven. Heaven is imminent. Get your juices flowing for Heaven.
