The Kingdom of Heaven

From that time Jesus began to preach saying, “Change the way you think because the divine reality is right here.” (LLT)

Heaven isn’t a place.  Heaven is a divine reality.  The kingdom of heaven isn’t a reward.  It is our true reality.  The kingdom of God isn’t a place we go when we die.  It is the substance of who we are.

The Great Illusion

If we will look, we will see.  If we listen, we will hear… Deep within us all is the truth of what and who we are.  We are the divine extension into this perceived reality to experience the illusion of separation so we might know our oneness.  We created this illusion so we might discover…

Staying Connected to Love…

In the last few posts (and many more) I’ve talked about “experiencing” what we know conceptually.  In our innermost being, our true self, we are the divine and have the wisdom of the divine.  This wisdom or divine knowing, bubbles up from deep within.  Then we experience what we “know” to “know what we know.” …

It actually isn’t a Chinese proverb or some Confucius saying. (A point…

A New Year – A New Look

For me to be a saint means to be myself.  Therefore the problem of sanctity and salvation is in fact the problem of finding out who I am and of discovering my true self.  (Thomas Merton, “New Seeds of Contemplation) Alancetotheheart has been quite the journey.  I started this blog in June 2013 with the…

What Now? – becoming love

1Co 12:26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. (ESVST) I wasn’t a popular kid in school. I didn’t have a bunch of friends and at times none at all. When I did have a friend, especially a girlfriend, I was clingy and possessive and annoying. When you…

Mystic Portal

I love that title.  When God opens up a door for you it is like stepping into a brightly lit spring morning.  The refreshing clean air with all the aromas of new creation enters your lungs and fills you with anticipation and joy.  You aren’t sure why you are so expectant but if feels like…
