1-2. Heaven surrounds, supports and sustains you. Always. You are never alone. You are forever loved. Be not afraid.
Heaven is not some faraway place, high up in the clouds, floating above all of the muck and mire that we behold as we look out upon our fragmented and conflicted society. Heaven is not isolated from us. It does not exist in a place that is inaccessible, unknowable or cut off from our normal, everyday experience of reality. It is not a destination. In fact, it is not even a place at all. That you will return to Heaven upon your mortal death is absolutely guaranteed. There is no other state of mind to return to after your Soul has alighted from your body. However you need not wait to return to Heaven until the moment in time when your Soul floats away from your body. All of the Gifts of God remain forever. They can be accessed at any time and in any place. There are no limits on these Gifts. They do not exist here but not there, in this time but not another, or for some Souls but not others. Heaven is not a destination but rather a Union with the infinitely expansive and completely Perfect Mind of God. This union exists throughout all of time and space. It was forged before time began and it will continue to exist after time has run its course and is no longer needed. Because this Union of you, the Created, and our fantastically benevolent Creator, you are forever enshrined in the Mind of God. You cannot break this connection. You cannot be separate from it. You cannot flee from this perfect joining of an Infinite Spirit with your own equally infinite but Created Spirit. There is but one distinction between your mind, which is in fact a universe unto itself, and the Mind of God, which is as well a Universe. The Mind of God was not created. It simply is. It has no genesis, no origin, no moment of birth from the formless void. God’s Mind has always been and it will always be. Your mind was created before time. But it did have a birth. In that birth, God Created your Soul and Gifted you with all of the attributes that are a part of God’s Nature. Expansiveness, curiosity, strength, certainty and infinite compassion are just some of the aspects of God’s Nature. As such, they are also permanent and irrevocable aspects of your nature. You can imagine any world you should wish to see. Within your mind is an entire Universe, all for you to explore. There are no limits on what you can imagine. You can create, just as you were Created, absolutely anything you should wish to be true for you. But you cannot create a world, in true Reality, that holds precepts that are opposed to your True Nature. Try as you might, your dreams of separation from all other living beings and indeed from God’s Kingdom of Peace will forever remain as dreams. The degree to which you believe these dreams to be true will directly influence your view of yourself and the physical world that you believe is manifested in your perception. But certain Laws still remain in effect, being established before your Creation. These Laws do not bind you. They do not restrict you. They do not limit in any way what you can see, create or manifest in your life. These Laws serve only to ensure that you do not have the power to create a world, in Truth, that functions in opposition to the Will of God. One of these Laws is that you remain, no matter how much you might fervently believe that you are not, constantly and consistently within the spiritual framework and effect of Heaven. Heaven is within you. It is also surrounding you. There is nowhere in the mind-boggling vastness of the Universe that you can travel to that will not be a part of Heaven. You have Free Will. It was your penultimate Gift during your creation, a creation that took place outside of time, instantly and without any effort. Your Free Will can allow you to spend incredibly long periods of time dwelling in your dreams of separation and isolation from the Kingdom of God. The physical universe has been in existence now for many billions of years. This period of time is vast indeed, but not infinite. However in contrast to an average human lifespan, this period of time is quite large indeed. The physical universe will continue for many billions of years to come. This outrageously vast amount of time is necessary to allow all Souls to dwell in their own minds for the exact amount of time they will need to explore all of the vast reaches of their own, personal universes. All will return to God, in their own time and at their own pace. There is no other Path to walk, no other place to return to and no other agenda that will have any effect on your total spiritual Awakening. However the time you require to search all of the vast reaches of your personal universe does not have to be as long as you might imagine it requires of you. This time can be reduced massively. In fact it can be shorted to an instant of time so brief that it is nearly equivalent to no time at all. But this choice, a choice between what has always been Real and what you wish to perceive as real for you, forever remains firmly in your hands only. No one can or will make this choice for you. No one can force you to make this choice until the exact moment when you are ready to make it. God will not make it for you. God will wait until you are ready. There can be no other way. Because you are forever Safe within the Mind of God, you have never been and can never be alone. Such concepts of isolation are strongly associated with your feelings of separation. This is understandable. All that you will see as you look out upon this material world will lead you to believe you are separate. You will see bodies. These bodies clearly are not your body. They are separate. You will see an enormous variety of many different things, all of which to your perception and our traditional understanding of the physical universe, have a life and existence that is not in any way connected to your own. This perception, of a world with so many distinct pieces, is very common and quite understandable from the ego’s point of view. You will not find within the ego’s thought schema any reason to believe that this separation is not real. But it remains forever untrue. God would never create a Soul that would be able to fully wrest itself away from the Love of God and cast itself down in to a world where it would truly be in isolation from all of the rest of Creation. Such would be cruelty indeed. There is no aspect of the Mind of God into which any thought of cruelty or malice enters. All thoughts that are not in alignment with the perfect Love that God has for all the Created Children will never arise within the perfect Mind of God. They are incongruous with God’s Nature and as such they simply do not exist. Your imagined isolation from Heaven, which is the realm of the Mind of God and in which you sleep, dreaming of being just a body, can lead to great fear. This is absolutely understandable and should never be seen as a failure on your part. You cannot fail. All thoughts of guilt and sin exist from this false concept. There is no failure. You can error, but your errors will forever remain just that – a misperception of Truth. The immense, overwhelming and crushingly horrendous fear that this misperception brings, this idea that Heaven does not already exist within your heart, can lead to a myriad of thoughts of attack against all who you perceive to be threatening to you. This too is completely understandable from the perspective of eternal isolation from all else that lives. But you need not believe this to be true for you. There is another way. With deep reflection and when a willingness to open your mind to all possibilities is chosen by you, you will begin to feel the Truth of the existence of Heaven within your heart. It has always been there. It will never leave, never change and it will never fail to hold its perfect Light of Love safe for your inevitable return. Looking outwards with the body’s eyes, you will not find it. It cannot be seen as it is not a physical place. It is an energy field in which the Mind of God is remembered. This field is always ready for you to return.
