Bringing Heaven Down to Earth. A famous statement.
From the perspective of duality, they are seen to be two different places, two different locations.
If we begin exploring metaphysics, we may learn about vibration and learn that what we call heaven may simply be a different vibrational frequency, perhaps a different state of consciousness. Thus the goal is to raise our vibrations or raise our level of consciousness. Perhaps we channel down higher vibrational energy, we do what we can to raise our own individual frequencies, or we raise the earth’s energy getting it higher and higher, closer to that which we envision to be heaven. Lots of different ways to play and love.
Yet there comes a time when, perhaps when the vibration gets high enough, I dunno.. not to sure about the metaphysical explanation here, but it is seen so clearly that there is no difference between heaven and earth, not even a vibrational difference. NONE. The two are one.
Heaven and earth. Not two, not two. As Jesus said, The Kingdom of God is at hand. It’s here! It’s here! (Turns out the guy was onto something…)
Byron Katie once brought up an amazing point. She asked what it would be like if you actually went “from earth to heaven” and took all your suffering ego-based thoughts with you. Would you even experience heaven at all or would you continue to experience only the product of your unquestioned thoughts?
The veil of separation makes it seem like heaven is somewhere else, somewhere other than LITERALLY RIGHT HERE AND NOW and so we go out seeking something, somewhere, wherever it is. Clearly if I’m not experiencing it then it must mean that it’s not here…
Instead of seeking something else somewhere, we can question our thoughts, explore our perceptions, look within. Do the spiritual work as suggested. As the distorting glasses are recognized and taken off, we see THIS MOMENT clearly as it IS, not as we *think* it is, but as it ACTUALLY is. BIG difference…
It’s not a mental seeing.
There is purity and there is distortion. The task is not to find something which is not here, but to clear ourselves of distortion, misunderstanding, false notions, and limited ideas.
Strip away and let go of all that leads to suffering, separation, and misunderstanding, and see what remains.
Pure. Natural. Radiant. Exquisite. Beyond All Words. Living as every word. Giving birth to all thought. The mother of all creation. The scent of a flower. The coo of a baby. The fart of that same baby. Everything. All of it.
The very light that spins all of existence into manifestation. Right here. Right here.
Our true home we never left, except for in our imaginations.
Is it a lucid dream? A dream without a dreamer. An experience without an experiencer.
An understanding of the great Unknown. The clear recognition that there’s nothing to know, only a pure being of that which you innately are.
The poetry of creation, the sounds of silence, the writings of no one, the laughter of the one.
