“Heaven is not a locality, but a divine state of Mind in which all the manifestations of Mind are harmonious and immortal, because sin is not there and man is found having no righteousness of his own, but in possession of ‘the mind of the Lord,’ as the Scripture says.” (Science and Health, page 291)
Heaven is not a location or a plane of existence beyond our reach today. Heaven is a state of thought. We achieve a taste of this paradise in each moment that we connect consciously with the divine Mind, God.
For heaven is creation as God conceived it. He is the One Mind and His ideas constitute the realm of reality. These thoughts are controlled by His wisdom and His Love and are without limits. We may believe that we are separate from this blissful state of being, but that is perception, not Truth.
If we yield up the ego that agrees to limits and listen to that consciousness that is universal Truth—one and pure and righteous—we perceive heaven. It isn’t in the material world to be found nor can it be lost in matter. It is sustained in that “mind of the Lord” that we possess. We have access to this heavenly perspective, because we are one with God, with Truth, with Life, and with Love.
Harmony and immortality are not behind some pearly gates. They are already in your thought to be realized. Trust those holy moments that you feel at times. These are more real and right and healing and true than the parade of earthly concepts that want to keep you anxious and small. Listen to the heart and soul that God gave you, the one that knows that peace is here and ours to realize, in this moment, on this day, in our expansive and awakened thinking!
