“But life is short and truth works far and lives long: Let us speak the truth.”
Jesus said: “But the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the Earth, and men do not see it.” If one thinks about this deeply we may come to the point where asking the question: “Is Heaven on Earth possible?” needs to be reconsidered. It would seem that the question considered or posed has to deal with how humanity comes to see that: “the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the Earth…” The eyes of humanity must open and see Heaven all around them, everywhere.
What can we identify which has blinded humanity to the heaven all around us?
Perhaps there are a number of factors. If we take a broad look at human history, with all the events that have occurred, we will find that many amazing things have happened through the centuries. Let us take a few moments and appreciate everything that has happened leading up to this moment in history. Think of every action ever taken, by every single human being who has ever lived. The images that we create by thinking on these things are staggering.
Think about the entire history of the human race from the beginning of time until the present moment. We ask ourselves: What does it all mean? Is there a destination for the human race as time marches on? What is the reason for our existence? These are legitimate questions that we all are asking. Perhaps we come into life and, depending on our actions, when we “die” we go to either an eternal heaven or an eternal hell. Perhaps we reincarnate as many times as is necessary until we come to fully understand unconditional love, and we have become enlightened enough to get off the wheel of birth and rebirth. Perhaps when we “die” our consciousness is over and that is it.
The majority of people on Earth have come to accept the possibilities of a vast array of final destinations. Some call God the “Great Mystery.” It is certain that we will become aware of the truth as we all will be leaving this physical realm. We will all come to experience the passing of family and friends. When one considers how immense this life is, one is left simply awe-struck. Albert Einstein said: “We come to the point where we decide that either nothing is a miracle or everything is a miracle.” One who becomes aware of unconditional love at the same time becomes aware that everything is a miracle.
When one becomes aware of unconditional love and that everything is a miracle, then the actions of that person reflect that awareness. Can we imagine what the world would be like if the awareness that everything is a miracle and that everyone has unconditional love inside of them were widespread? Does it not seem that we as humanity should perhaps “go there”? Would it not be neat if all the satellite television companies on the planet offered a cable channel called “The Heaven on Earth” channel? Then we could see the “Unconditional Love” channel follow as well.
Now you, the host, are starting to think that the guest has really gone “out there”. What is this talk about a “Heaven on Earth” channel and an “Unconditional Love” channel? We believe that if every satellite television company on Earth actualized a “Heaven on Earth” channel that it would be the most popular, most watched broadcasting on the planet. There are many fine people on this planet who are attempting, and have succeeded, in creating places on the world-wide-web that deal with positive changes for humanity.
We should all be very thankful that these communication tools have become available to humanity. We are hopeful and look forward to a brighter future, because the people of the world are communicating in a good way. Think of all the good ideas, thoughts, good humor, and joy that people from everywhere on Earth are sharing with each other. The sharing of thoughts and ideas among the people of the world is resulting in great changes of a spiritual nature. One could see current events and come to the conclusion that an awareness of the real possibility of Heaven on Earth, and every human being’s possession of unconditional love, is growing exponentially.
As we look at the broad expanse of human history, we must know that this present generation is experiencing and creating something that is utterly magnificent. The present generation has gained access to communication technology that has opened the floodgates of important, world-changing information. Think of the course of history and realize that there has never been such an enormous sharing of ideas between men, women and children from all areas of Earth. Just as a family begins to talk about actions and situations, so we now see that the human family is talking about solutions to humanity’s historical problems.
Imagine all the interactions of a positive nature which are occurring between people in all the areas and countries on Earth. It makes one’s heart soar to realize all the love that is expressed in these communications. Imagine all the peace that is being shared. Imagine all the understanding that is being created. See in your mind’s eye and your soul where this massive, positive communication is leading humanity.
As this enormously loving, positive communication progresses, humanity is literally creating a Heaven on Earth.
