Heaven Is Not A Place Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Heaven Is Not A Place

Rating: 4.8


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.

We've heard: heaven and are here on earth. But you are more accurate. They're right within us. 'It happens in you and me', as you said. Well writ.
