Do I work in Heaven if yes, that is not heaven for me.

Updated on June 28, 2009

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.

      Of course, we would not be in heaven or any other place, without expecting to preform our duties and tasks. You are a very smart person, to realize such a thing. May God be with you.
