The Kingdom of Heaven
What does that look like to you? What are your hopes? What are your expectations ?

There are many different perspectives on exactly what the Kingdom is. Is it future for you? Why?

Can it be achieved now? Why or why not ?

The servants of the Most Merciful walk upon the earth easily; and when the ignorant address them harshly they say words of peace.

When the heart is pure, there is no difficulty, whatsoever. Why should one be afraid of any one if there be no evil thought in us?

Of what worth is creation ~ if it doesn’t put a sparkle in your eye ~ and a song in your heart?

Re: The Kingdom of Heaven
According to Jesus in the bible:

And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Re: The Kingdom of Heaven
I created a thread like this once.

There was no interest, as usual.

I think about it all the time, but just to fill it up with stuff.

I consider it inevitable, because God did not create in vain.

When I consider so much of what goes on, so much of what most people do, etc., I think it will be a sparsely populated place.

I've only known a handful of people I want to see in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Most people will have to get there on their own, or they will need to hold on hard to Jesus' coattails.

I wish I could say better.

A good source material, Christian source material, is a classic monastic text called "The Cloud of Unknowing".

Which is basically christian "zen". So, here's a Zen quote that is pretty straightfoward, saying essentially the same thing as that Christian text:


Withdraw now from
the invisible pounding and weaving
of your ingrained ideas.
Attain fulfillment and illuminate thoroughly.
Light and shadow altogether forgotten.
Drop off your own skin,
and the sense-dusts will be fully purified.
The eye then readily discerns the Brightness.

Re: The Kingdom of Heaven
I have considered that my impression of human beings may be skewed by this being the "wicked generation" Jesus was talking about.

Jesus might have hated wicked people even more than I do.

He certainly sounded pissed when he said he would give them no miracles.

Jesus won't help them.

He demands absolute repentance from the Wicked Generation.

It means they will have to reach the Kingdom of Heaven only by their own efforts.

And they will surely be damned if they don't repent.

Older generations seemed better to me, and many of them probably were.

They were more deserving of miracles.

 Quoting: Tomeko


Dude the spirit world is earth too. I wouldnt say it was really "near" earth. Thats like saying its over there. Its right here. Its hard to recognize for the majority. And for me too!

But once you catch a glimpse of it. You can't Un catch a glimpse of it really.

It resides in people.

Can you imagine a world were everyone got along and shared everything they thought they had?

Ubuntu!

Its only in us to make that happen.

The spiritual manifestations are love for example. Or anger or jealousy.

Its not over there.
