Eternity is not the hereafter.
It has nothing to do with time.
If we don’t understand that it is here and now,
We are unready for doing so anywhere.
In the fullness of time, we too will be able to grasp
That Eternity is in the here and now,
Wherever we may find ourselves;
That it is as much in the rhythms of the unfolding
Of our earthly lives and the world around us
As in our departure from them.
Heaven is not where we go at the end of every lifetime.
Although the spirit realm too is part of Eternity,
But so is every moment of each new day.
Heaven and hell are states of consciousness and
Not places that anyone ever went to.
