The Pearl of Great Price
January 4, 2017

       Message Where Are You Planted 2       

When Jesus was trying to describe Heaven
to his disciples he said it was like
the most perfect and expensive pearl
which a merchant valued so much
that he sold everything he had to purchase it.
 
Don’t reduce Heaven to something
you might enjoy after you die.
Heaven is happening right now.

It’s the Divine Presence everywhere unfolding
as absolute peace of mind,
faithfulness, boundless compassion,
wisdom, generosity and transcendent Joy.
It’s a state of consciousness to aspire to
in this lifetime.
 
Angels are Realized Souls walking the earth.
There are buddhas among us.
Make that your highest aspiration.
To embody your Divinity is the pearl of great price,
and nothing you chase after is more valuable than that.
