A New Thought about Heaven
November 1, 2017

Heaven is a state of consciousness
that can be attained by anyone
regardless of outer circumstances.
It has nothing whatsoever to do with
health, wealth, or happiness
as material mind understands them.
Heaven is its own reward.
It cannot be earned –
it can only be awakened to.
Heaven is conscious union with the Divine.
Heaven on the earth plane does not necessarily mean
the end of physical suffering (although it can result in that).
To be in Heaven is to love everyone equally;
to crave nothing, while gratefully receiving everything;
and to feel the Divine with every breath you take
and every step you make.
The Good News is this: Heaven is your Destiny
 – no matter how many lifetimes it takes.
