Part in Heaven. Now and Always.

Part of you.  Part of me.  That part is in heaven. Now and always.

Many days cloud that simple truth.  And many days, if even for a blessed moment, reveal it.

From the author Thomas Merton…

March 19, 1958: “In Louisville, at the corner of Fourth and Walnut, in the center of the shopping district, I was suddenly overwhelmed with the realization that I loved all these people, that they were mine and I theirs, that we could not be alien to one another even though we were total strangers. It was like waking from a dream of separateness … I have the immense joy of being man, a member of a race in which God Himself became incarnate….”

Emanuel Swedenborg captured the big picture simply and well. “The spiritual world is right where we are, not distanced from us in the least…. as far as the deeper levels of our minds are concerned we are all in that world, surrounded by angels.”  (Divine Love and Wisdom, 92)

We may not often see it.  Often hidden in fog.  But at other times … there.

  2. I precisely had to thank you so much once again. I do not know what I would’ve worked on in the absence of these ways shown by you over my subject. It actually was an absolute frustrating issue for me personally, but looking at a professional strategy you dealt with the issue made me to leap over delight. I’m thankful for your help and then believe you know what a powerful job you were putting in educating men and women through your blog post. I am sure you have never come across all of us.
