“Love a man even in his sin for that love is a likeness of the divine love, and is the summit of love on Earth.” – Fyodor Dostoyevski
We are happy to have this chance to share our thoughts with you. It is our greatest and most sincere hope that after you have finished reading these words, that you may in some way be a better person. Our vision for this work is there will be many who read these words and maybe the world will be a better place.
As we are becoming better people we sometimes underestimate the value of this becoming. The realization that creating Heaven on Earth is possible is a realization that takes a certain amount of thought. Sometimes it seems that the human race makes the life experience too complex and cannot see the simple truth within.
Is Heaven on Earth possible? The simple act of asking the question opens up our minds to all kinds of images of what Heaven on Earth would look like. The imagining of possible Earthly realities is extremely worthwhile. The simple act of going to a place in our minds where we consciously think about what some would call utopia begins the journey.
We have all been in conversations where perhaps someone inserts their thoughts and another will say: “let’s not go there.” With regard to humanity’s creation of a Heaven on Earth we are now going to “go there.” In this conversation we will attempt to communicate in such a way that there will be no doubt about the absolute possibility of creating an Earth reality based on infinite love.
Let us now just take a little time to consider the possibilities. First we need to ask ourselves if creating Heaven on Earth is worth any effort. From the wide range of our accomplishments as humans we have learned that certain goals are worth striving for. Consider the effort children exert when as boys and girls they are learning to ride their bikes. These children just know that what they are doing will result in their reaching a goal that will allow them to experience joy.
Consider the serious efforts of men and women who enter war zones trying to bring about peace. These men and women know that what they are doing will result in reaching a goal that will allow the people of the conflict zone to once again experience joy. Consider what drives the child to learn to ride their bike and what drives the man or woman as a peacemaker. Think about all the actions that we as humans take that lie in between the child learning to ride their bike and the peacemakers risking their lives to end war.
What is common to all the actions we as humans take? It is the instinctual belief that the actions will increase joy. Of course this begs some questions. For example: “what about those who take the actions which result in harm being done to others?” We have all listened to interviews where the host asks a question and the guest replies: “that is a good question.” Here you are the host, I am the guest and you have just asked me: “what about those who take the actions which result in harm being done to others?”
We are only a few steps into this journey and let us look at the questions that have already been asked. “Is Heaven on Earth possible?” “What about those who take the actions which result in harm being done to others?” It seems that we will be experiencing one heck of a journey. So let us begin. Let us attempt to deal with the actions of human beings that result in harm being done to fellow human beings. If we can come to a point where we understand why humans hurt their fellow humans, we will have the beginning established.
Let us first look at common hurtful actions. The most common hurtful actions are those which involve harmful speech. Now we must ask ourselves: “why would someone say something hurtful to another?” Perhaps the person who said the words has not come to realize that the person who they just hurt with words is a sacred being as we all are. Now you the host will ask me the guest to: “prove to me that we are all sacred beings.” With the asking of this question you are expressing your doubts that all humans are sacred; that everything we can see is sacred.
Perhaps we need to discover where spiritual truth is found. Is it possible that all of our current and historical assumptions about where we find spiritual truth in need of examination? The current state of humanity is one where most people think that the answers to their spiritual questions are found externally. What is the possibility that our answers to spiritual questions are inside of us?
His disciples said: “Teach us concerning the place where thou art, for it is necessary for us to seek after it.” Jesus said to them: “He that hath ears, let him hear. There is a light within a man of light, and it gives light to the whole world. If it does not give light, there is darkness.”
There is light within a man of light. Within is defined as 1: In or into the interior: inside. 2: In one’s inner thought, disposition, or character. So, after thinking on what Jesus said, we may give credence to the idea that our answers are inside all of us. Would the person who hurt the other have done so if that person were aware that inside of them resided God, the sacred and love? The answer is an obvious no. If the person was aware that God was inside of them, they would use speech that is helpful to others all the time..
Simple logic tells us that if God and love resides in all people, all life and all things, then all people, all life and all things are sacred.
