Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth is not afraid

Neither grasping

Nor catty, nor chatty.

Heaven on Earth is peace.

Deep silence,

Utter love.

Within and

Without.

No grappling, guessing, or greed.

Heaven on Earth is

Peace.

 

Heaven on Earth is not in pain.

Pain is simply a reminder

Of something we need to change

Or remember.

 

Heaven on Earth is not lack.

It is an abundance of all that

We hold dear,

Although we may not yet know it.

It may be, however, that Heaven will bring

far less of some things, which no longer

serve us and so

They fall away

As we become ourselves enough.
