A Metaphor From Jesus

Updated on October 3, 2015

As above, So below



Heaven and Hell are not places, they are states of being in your mind and in your life. Hell is the state of anger, rage, jealousy or depression that us human beings find ourselves drowning in from time to time. Heaven, on the other hand, feels like peace, happiness, contentment, gratitude and love. How do we get from one state to another? How do we get out of our personal Hells? Jesus tells us the answer. Every moment is a moment to resurrect yourself, to change your situation, to change your state of being. Every moment is a moment to change our attitude and gratitude. Asking our Heavenly Father, asking our God, to be there for us and guide us is the difference between Heaven and Hell. To change how we feel and how we treat ourselves, we must not rely on ourselves. We do not know the bigger picture. We do not know the answers to why we are here or why we are given life.


Take God into your heart and you you will find your way back to heaven. Allow God to enter your state of mind and state of being, and let there be room to hear and feel what God offers. Sometimes we don't know all the answers but often times we think we do. There is a bigger picture and a bigger calling if only God is allowed to enter our minds and heart. That feeling of fullness, that feeling of contentment are sources of God. No drink, or drug, or form of pleasure can provide that feeling of contentment and fullness. If it does, it is short-lived.


The cross of Jesus reminds us that we can all resurrect from hell into heaven. We can resurrect from a state of downward spiraling to a state of upliftment. This symbol reminds us that we are not alone. It remind us that we can turn to our Heavenly Father, we can turn to our God at any time. It also reminds us of the times we have turned to God and found our way back to light.
