Heaven on Earth 

We do not have to die
To arrive at the gates of Heaven. 
In fact, we have to be truly alive. 
The practice is to touch life deeply
So that the Kingdom of God becomes a reality. 
This is not a matter of devotion. 
It is a matter of practice. 
The Kingdom of God is available
HERE and NOW!

Heaven on Earth
I have had no “near death” experiences and I really don’t have a clue what heaven would look like. But for me heaven couldn’t wouldn’t be heaven without my beloved dogs and cats. In fact it couldn't wouldn’t be heaven without flying birds, squirrels, and butterflies. In fact it couldn’t wouldn’t be heaven without blue skies, puffy white clouds, occasional rains, and snow. It couldn’t wouldn’t be heaven without the moon and the stars at night; without the first sun rays of dawn, and crimson sunsets. How could heaven be beautiful without flowers? It couldn’t wouldn’t be heaven without trees, running streams, or ocean waves. It makes me think that Heaven on Earth may be closer than we think! Maybe heaven is in the present, the Here & Now!

7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
or let the fish in the sea inform you.
9 Which of all these does not know
that the hand of the LORD has done this?
10 In his hand is the life of every creature
and the breath of all mankind.
Job 12:7-10

By reading the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me. The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.
