My soul can find no stairway to Heaven unless it be through Earth’s loveliness.  Michelangelo

As you develop your meditation skills through regular practice, you get to the point when some steps to a clearer connection are no longer necessary to reach those higher states of awareness. Whereas once you had to close your eyes to shut out distractions, you can now keep your eyes wide open to tap into the awareness beyond form and see as Spirit sees.

Since form follows consciousness and heaven is a state of consciousness, it seems logical that heaven can find its way into your awareness demonstrating as your life now. You don’t have to wait for some far-off distant time or place to be in heaven. Why would you need to close your eyes to enter heaven if you realize you’re already in the midst of it? You can choose to be in heaven or you can choose to point out all the ways you are not. Either way, the choice is yours.

Spiritual Contemplation: Look at all the conversations you have that take you out of the experience of heaven on earth. Where can you shift your perspective to see you are in heaven now?

Affirmation: I am in Heaven now!
