What is heaven. Where is it.

The kingdom of heaven is within you.
What does that mean ?.
God is within you.
What does that mean ?.

A random monk i heard about said heaven is a kind awareness.
Heaven is being aware of the kindness in the world around you.
Hell is being aware of unkindness in the world around you.

You become what you love said the Buddha.
Your behaviour slowly mimics what you love.
You also become what you hate.
Your behaviour slowly mimics what you hate.

Heaven and hell are states of your behaviour.
Your character is wet clay for your hands.
Nature rejoices in nature.
You make yourself into heaven or hell.
Make yourself into heaven and you are already there.
Make yourself into hell and you are already there.

It seems like something anyone can figure out.
And that is the truth. It is simple. We overlook how important
it is. Understanding that we become our good or bad thoughts. That there is no place to go too after you die.
It is who you are in this life. What you make yourself too be.
Every true saint, holy man, messiah told us.
Where too look.

Understanding the story of jesus helping the man on the road
Is something not 100 lifetimes of spiritual practise can teach you about what it means to be human.

The kingdom of heaven is within in you.
God is within you.
What is within you. Kindness ?.

In a world where skin deep is popular by need and the human urgre to connect with others is shaved of all meaning through empty apps, bitesized popularity posts, vacuous trends.
You are the blind. Live to work. Work or die. Live for the weekends. Another game, another movie, another celebrity, another story, another year, another life.
Yet behind all the materialism flung at your face decade after decade, the things and moments that matter to your existence are not buyable. They were filled with kindness.

The billions of souls who passed through history wanted meaning for their existence. Only found it in kindness.
To love and too be loved. There is no higher meaning.
It is infinite potential for growth.

" Death is swallowed up by victory "

Bless you if you read this.

Thank you for sharing <3. :confused:

Matthew 16:13-20
"Now when Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”

And they answered, “Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah, or [just] one of the prophets.”

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the Son of the living God.”

Then Jesus answered him, “Blessed [happy, spiritually secure, favored by God] are you, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood (mortal man) did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

And I say to you that you are Peter [Greek, Petros—a large piece of rock], and on this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades (death) will not overpower it [by preventing the resurrection of the Christ].

I will give you the keys (authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth will have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth will have [already] been loosed in heaven.”

Then He gave the disciples strict orders to tell no one that He was the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed)."

Luke 17:5-6
"The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”

And the Lord said, “If you had faith (trust and confidence in God) even [so small] like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree [which has very strong roots], ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea’; and [if the request was in agreement with the will of God] it would have obeyed you."

John 3:1-16
"Now there was a man from the Pharisees— the name for him was Nicodemus— a ruler of the Jews.

This one came to Him by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher. For no one is able to be doing these signs which You are doing unless God is with him”.

Jesus responded and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you— unless one is born again, he is not able to see the kingdom of God”.

Nicodemus says to Him, “How is a person able to be born while being an old-man? He is not able to enter a second time into the womb of his mother and be born, is he?”

Jesus responded, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of God.

The thing having been born of the flesh is flesh, and the thing having been born of the Spirit is spirit.

Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You all must be born again’— the wind blows where it wants, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know from where it comes, and where it is going. So is everyone having been born of the Spirit”.

Nicodemus responded and said to Him, “How are these things able to happen?”

Jesus responded and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and you do not understand these things?

Truly, truly, I say to you that we are speaking what we know, and we are testifying what we have seen, and you people are not receiving our testimony.

If I told you people earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

And no one has gone up into heaven except the One having come down from heaven— the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted-up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up in order that everyone putting-faith in Him may have eternal life.”

For God so loved the world that He gave His only-born Son, in order that everyone believing in Him may not perish, but may have eternal life. For God did not send-forth the Son into the world in order that He might judge the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him."

Gospel of Thomas
"3 Jesus says: "If those who seek to attract you say to you: 'See, the Kingdom is in heaven!' then the birds of heaven will be there before you. If they say to you: 'It is in the sea!' then the fish will be there before you. But the kingdom is within you and it is outside of you!

When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will know that it is you who are the children of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."

"50 Jesus says: "If they say to you, 'Where have you come from?' say to them, 'We have come from the Light, from the place where the Light came into being by itself, established [itself], and it revealed itself in their image.' If they say to you, 'Is it you?' say, 'We are its children, and we are the chosen of the living Father.'

If they ask you, 'What is the evidence of your Father in you?' say to them, 'It is motion and rest.'"
