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.

    So very true..
    Heaven has a monopoly of none..it just exists within you it was simply fantastic. (Report) Reply

    This is simply beautiful. I particularly love the last statement: it's refreshing to here an interpretation of heaven that any religious denomination can relate to...reading this poem was heaven... (Report) Reply

    Yes, 'heaven' is a condition, sometimes we feel as though we are in heaven and somtimes not.....I don't think it is a place either...

    Ruthie - though it would be nice if it were..... (Report) Reply

    very very true..
    heaven is in our own actions. instead of searching for heaven above the skies,
    look for it in daily life in our own joyful actions of love.
    thank you for ur ideas and philosphy which is clearly seen in your other poems. thank you tony (Report) Reply

    Yes Tony, I fully agree
    Very poetically said
    reaching the core of our being
    Goodness is rewarded immediately
    with tremendous peace of mind and
    you are completely right
    this may a glimpse of how heaven feels. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem. What a great thought! I always keep wondering why people go in search of Heaven when

    It is a happening.
    It happens in you and me.

    The last line obviously is the icing on the cake! (Report) Reply
