There is heaven and hell in all of us.
Aside from the popular belief that polar opposites are mortal enemies, we often forget that we are the fine line between everything. When people are out of balance we swing on opposite spectrums at the same time… as a whole. We are a massive contradiction! When in balance, however, we acknowledge that we are something more than the English language can define in one word. I’m sure there is a word for that. Maybe it’s been lost in translation, just like everything else that reminds us of how much power humans have.
So… Why do we all know about heaven and hell?
These very specific other-worldly realms have been instilled in us since the day that our guardians deemed us worthy of being a part of the societal construct. If you do this, you go here. If you do that, you go there. Up. Down. Never any other way. Who says it’s in the vicinity of north and south?
What if I told you heaven and hell are with us, always?
Why are you so concerned about a world you don’t technically exist in, yet you have little curiosity for the one you’re stuck in now? This does not make sense, my dude.
The fact is, you’re really concerned about your afterlife, because you’re already living it. That guilt you feel from doing wrong consumes your conscious state. You breathe, eat (or don’t eat), and dream guilt. That also goes for your sorrow, depression, unhappiness, self depreciation. The list goes on. You’re familiar with hell. After holding onto such lagging emotions, your world gets turned upside down. Everything around you somehow bothers you, and for some reason it all connects to you. Hell.
On the bright side, you have a choice to experience heaven too! The joys you feel from your latest promotion, a new house, or just a brand new day that somehow wants to smile on you, even for a moment! You hold onto these positive things such as bliss, abundance, power, self-confidence, even love for as long as you can; and life for a moment isn’t as bad as you’d thought. If you’re anything like the average human, even in the midst of happiness you’re wondering “alright…in what direction should I prepare for some garbage to happen?”
That’s unfortunate. Even when in heaven, you can’t imagine how it would be possible to exist in such a place. Where are you really living?
The point is, whether it’s heaven, hell, or another dimension, you’re already a part of that which your mind perceives.
Just because you put it on a pedestal far for your mind to comprehend what is right in front of you, doesn’t mean it isn’t really there. Take this moment out to think about all of the great ideas. You have put on a pedestal too far for your hands to reach.
Now take it off… Grasp it with your mind, and live the life you want.
It may be hard work; but that’s only because you’re a bit of heaven and hell, already. Don’t be afraid to explore what is already so natural inside of you.
