I don’t think heaven is some intangible, far-off place that we should focus so heavily on that we forget to enjoy our lives right now.
I think we can create heaven right here on earth, and I, like a lot of people, want to do everything I can to raise the collective vibration and make this world heavenly.
There are a few belief systems that resonate with me, and they all preach the idea that heaven can be found and/or created on earth.
Spiritualism, which I write about but don’t practice, endorses the idea that life is a journey filled with constant lessons. It also promotes the concept of consciousness living on after the body dies.
Most people who hear the term ‘spiritualism’ probably associate it with mediums and channeled messages that have to do with life after death, but there’s more to the religion than meets the eye.
It also promotes the idea that earth is a school that prepares us for the greater life we’ll experience when we die or spiritually evolve. Even though it doesn’t seem to specifically advocate creating heaven on earth, we can use its philosophy of love, service and inner work to change the world by changing ourselves.
There’s also Rastafari, which promotes the idea that heaven already exists in Africa and we’ll eventually return there when justice is served to the corrupt elite and the world can live in peace. I like to think heaven’s already on earth, but we clearly have some work to do before this world can be as heavenly as we want it to be.
Then there’s the ascension movement, which promotes the idea that we’re physically and spiritually evolving into a higher state of consciousness, which is usually referred to as the fifth dimension. A lot of seekers who embrace it believe we’ll use a higher consciousness to create heaven on earth.
These three beliefs all share a common theme, which is that hard work (along with love) will help us spiritually evolve and create heaven on our humble little planet.
In any belief, you’ll notice people who embrace their concepts over the inner and outer work they’re meant to inspire, and I don’t think we’re meant to focus on any one philosophy over the work that needs done to heal our world.
I’m sure there are other belief systems out there that advocate an earthly heaven, but in my opinion, beliefs aren’t as important as the love and spirituality they can lead us to embrace. I embrace the belief systems mentioned here to an extent, but I don’t fully embody their philosophies or strive to be a spokesperson for them.
I don’t want to be a spokesperson for any specific movement or belief, because I think they’re all meant to help us find a higher state of consciousness and use it to contribute to a spiritually driven society that’s free of the follies of our current culture.
Every belief system has its truths and untruths, and I appreciate any belief that encourages its followers to see that earthly heaven’s not only possible, but already here. I think the goal’s more important than the vehicle we use to get there, and no matter what beliefs lead us to create heaven on earth, our time has come to start creating it.
Like a lot of other seekers, my true religion is love. It’s more potent than any belief or philosophy – even the ones that inspire us to embrace unity and selflessness. Love is the ultimate path to heaven, and whether or not our attempts to create heaven on earth are successful, love will lead us to our destination.
It’s been said that raising our vibration is the best way to raise the vibration of the rest of the world, and when we can remain in a constant loving space, it’ll become easier for the rest of the world to look inside themselves and find the love that’s been missing.
Our society needs love and harmony right now, and I think these qualities are essential if we want to create anything that’s different from how we currently function. The world’s in need of the higher vibration we’ve come here to offer, so let’s keep this in mind when we’re having trouble uplifting ourselves.
I think it’ll be important to keep in mind that we’re here to have fun. Yes, we have a lot of work to do to heal our defunct society, but our work isn’t meant to drag on our spirituality or our sense of wellness. To the contrary – it’s meant to increase our wellness and our willingness to be creative.
A new world is dawning, but we have to welcome it with open arms and an open mind and heart. Only when we can be examples of lasting inner change and embrace things that nourish and expand our spirituality can we change the world, and with the number of people who’ve awakened so far, collectively healing the planet with our spirituality should be a breeze.
