Heaven noun /ˈhev.ən/

  • In some religions, the place, sometimes imagined to be in the sky, where God or the gods live and where good people are believed to go after they die, so that they can enjoy perfect happiness. 'Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.'

  • A situation that gives you great pleasure. 'Since we got married, we have been in seventh heaven.'

  • The sky. 'We stared up at the heavens trying to see the comet.'


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 world to be a polarised 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 the physical world figuratively functions as a mirror, and therefore, any information or 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 “human 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”.

Moreover, 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 yet, 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.

Why listen to temptation and linger in ego's thought system and basic doctrine "Seek but do not find” when Heaven can be chosen just as easily as hell and love will happily replace all fear? From all the choices you have tried to make, this one is the simplest, most complete, and most representative of all the others, the one that sets all decisions. If you could decide the rest, it would remain unresolved. But when you resolve this one, the others resolve with it for all decisions, but hide this one by taking different forms. Here is the last and only choice in which the truth is accepted or denied.

It is impossible to see two worlds that have no overlap of any kind. There are no half-measures. Accept a small part of hell as real, and what you will see is indeed hell, and it is this and only this you will see. Seek for one world, and the other will disappear. The one you see is pretty consistent from the point of view from which you see it because it comes from your emotions and reflects its source in everything you see. The real and the unreal are all there are to choose between, and nothing more than these.

Is this a real choice if we consider that we can either go to Heaven or go nowhere? Can one sound mind really choose between the desire for Heaven and the desire for hell? Even if Heaven had been a choice we could consciously make, Heaven is the decision we must make, for it is our only alternative to this bizarre world we have made.

At any moment, the deliverance of Heaven remains within our grasp to take the place of all that hell would present us. We should be glad that Heaven is not separate from us and, thus, was never lost. The changelessness of Heaven is in us, so deep inside, that nothing in this world but goes unseen and unnoticed.


Then, if Heaven is within us, how can we find it? We should look inside our minds, 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; there is a place in us where God is.

Heaven is not a place nor a condition. It is merely an awareness of perfect Oneness, and the knowledge that there is nothing else; nothing outside this Oneness, and nothing else within. Heaven is here. There is nowhere else. Heaven is now. There is no other time.
