Do I work in Heaven if yes, that is not heaven for me.
Heaven is real
I have been looking for this heaven since I was in Sunday school when I was four years old. Oh I remember a great deal about what I was told about heaven and the other place. I always try to be "good" just so I could get to heaven and be and angel and live in bliss as it is described in scriptures from around the world. I honestly was looking for this heaven place on planet earth. I did not know better then, I did not know myself.
I believe heaven exists and it a a place where there is real freedom. The limiting human concept of heaven must be expanded to experience this realization. Jesus himself says "The kingdom of heaven is within you". I believe this because we are created in the image and likeness of God according to scripture. Not just Christian scripture, Hindu scripture, ancient Egyptian thought and other teaching I have received. Yes this heaven is inside you and me and all other living beings that want to accept this as truth.
I do not pose to be some big time great scholar, but I can tell you this, I am a happy being and no one can take that away from me, that is just how it is in my life. I have had my challenges, physical pain, set backs. I am not different from any other person. I just know that my spirit is eternal and I exist and will exist for ever in some form or fashion I am a loving being by nature so I have nothing to really worry about. Karma demands that for every action there is a series of reactions, so I consistently strive to do the best I can because that is all I can do in life.
Heaven, yes I am trying to build it here so when I move on it will be there due to my karma and God's mercy. My question was not if there is a heaven, it is who is going to tell me that I am in heaven. What am I going to do there, if I have to work i.e. do thing I do not want to do then that is not heaven, that is some one trying to trick me, I do not go for such nonsense.
Keep in mind there is a difference between believing and knowing.
Thank you for the question.
