HEAVEN AND HEAVEN, 2023
We have created the idea of polar opposites and paradoxes, we have allowed this idea for us to create darkness and light, up and down, positive and negative, black and white. We are constantly creating a physical reality to be a polarised reality experience where the two polarised opposites are always intertwined in one reality. Hence, every manifestation of consciousness will always have the idea of a reverse aspect because physical reality figuratively functions as a mirror, and therefore, any information, any communication will always have a reverse aspect or contrast. Where there is black there will always be white and where there is white there will always be also black. In short, we contain the whole of the dichotomy of the polarity of the apparent contrasts and opposites.
As a consequence of this simple idea, once we are talking about Heaven, the opposite, the idea of hell must appear, and because our mind has to allocate a space where everything can be found, the latter seems to be placed on Earth while Heaven seems to be located somewhere in the sky or in some sort of after "life".
Furthermore, because we believe that all things have an opposite, there seem to be alternatives to choose from for choice seems to be the only obvious escape from what appears as opposites, hence in this maddeningly complicated world Heaven appears to take the form of an option to be selected, or better a choice.
We have been taught that a good choice cannot be made until alternatives are accurately seen and understood. Yet, understanding, in this case, is simply the realisation, the remembering that there is no hell, for hell is only what the ego has made of the present and joyously forecasted it in the future.
Even if Heaven is a choice we consciously make, Heaven is the decision we must make for it is our only alternative to this bizarre world we have made. And we can very easily do this once we remember that there is a place in us where this polarised reality experience, we seem to live in is melted away, there is a place in us where perfect peace abides, there is a place in us where everything is possible, there is a place in us where there is only love.
