Heaven Is Not A Place - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Heaven is not a place
It is a happening.
It happens in you and me.

The inner beauty
And the serenity
In moments of true love
are its own reward.

In selfless love, heaven happens.
Heaven has no borders,
No distinctions, and
Monopoly of none.

Heaven transcends all religions.

    hi, tony! this morning the thought came to read a poem of yours. i picked this one right off and resonated with it. similarly in the christian tradition, jesus says in john chapter 17 that to know God is eternal life. back just a few chapters from there he repeats to his disciples the first and greatest command- to love- commitment to which brings God near. and from the opening words in genesis we understand that place, along with time and thing-ness or materiality are part of the creation- which are temporal not eternal. blessed are you, blessed all of us who understand and live this! -glen kappy (Report) Reply

    Word. There is only one above and one below. In the end, it would be nice if we could all at least agree on that. Nicely put. (Report) Reply
