I have been thinking lately whether it is possible to experience Heaven on Earth. Currently, people go about achieving it in a beat-around-the-bush way:
We tend to…
- dwell on and then battle the words people speak into our souls.
- use our careers, relationships & lifestyle to prove that we are different from the people we vow to never become (ehem mom & dad) or
- attack pain from a place of equal fear & hopelessness
Most people’s plan: build heaven by demolishing the hellish crap-storm in the way.
Why doesn’t this work? Focusing on what we don’t want gives us more of what we don’t want. Think of this crap pile analogy. Use your hands to remove the mess = get more messy. Use fire to burn away the mess = ignite a toxic explosion.
God’s plan: Listen to him. Hear him building. Follow the sound of his hammer, and hear where he wants us to strike our nail.Earth: a compilation of what people think, believe and create. Heaven: a compilation of what God thinks, believes and creates.
This week, listen. When we adopt God’s thoughts, we create something heavenly.
In the comments below this post (or on Facebook), tell me what you hear.
If you have spent 20+ years believing a crap-storm of worthlessness, powerlessness & injustice, its about time you gifted yourself 30 minutes of discussing the opposite, dare I say the truth.
