Heaven Right Here

Went for a walk in the moonlight and starlight and immediately felt Moz with me. And a couple of musings passed through my thoughts: I don’t need to die to be with the people I love who have passed beyond my seeing them – because they’re already with me right now; I don’t need to die to have heaven – everything that will bring me joy on the “other side” is with me right here, in this moment. If I can’t find my joy here, I’m not going to find it “there,” either. If I can’t be grateful for now, what makes me think I’m going to be grateful for whatever comes after this?

“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
– Luke 17:21

  1. Good morning, Karen, did you get my email from a couple of days ago? Not a problem if you did receive and don’t have time to respond. As for me, you can’t die! Your ideas have helped me and helpful ideas are as grand as the full moon, that we both can glimpse, at different times, because we’re on other sides of the same country or its cloudy or I’m goofing off or asleep. And as you say, heaven is here.
