“The Kingdom of God does not come in such a way as to be seen. No one will say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’; because the Kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17: 20-21, Good News Translation)
The Kingdom of God isn’t a place or a plane of existence. It isn’t some bright hope for tomorrow or some attainment that comes when we leave this earth. The Kingdom—that heavenly, harmonious reality of Life—is within you.
And that means it is yours to claim and enjoy right here and now. But you are not the creator of this glorious ideal. You don’t have to design and build some perfect perspective and existence that shines with the glories of God and His goodness. It is God that caused this great domain and gave it to us. What is within us is this innate awareness of Love and Truth. It is the core of who we are, and when we honor it, when we yield to God’s Truth of Life, we indeed feel present in that magnificent realm of peace, joy, and power.
Stop waiting for the stars to align. Give up the sense that you have to endlessly strive to make a perfect life for yourself or for others. The Kingdom is complete and ready and yours. It is attained by conscious acceptance. It is a surrender to God as All, and to ourselves as dwelling in His Love and Life presently, permanently, and perfectly.
You have natural access to this harmonious feeling and knowing, this trustworthy presence, your true home. Let’s stop looking outside of ourselves for what is already ours within—so freeing, satisfying, and just right.
