Did you know the word "spirit" means "breath"?

Where Is Heaven?

“In the arena of knowing, there’s no make-believe. You experience.
It’s not a fantasyland… You are here to experience Heaven.”

A few quotes from Knowledge, The Essence of World Scriptures

The coming of God’s Kingdom
is not a matter of external observation.
People won’t be able to say,
“Look, here it is!” or, “Look, there it is!” because
the Kingdom of God is within, inside of you.
Luke 17

If those who lead you say,
“Behold, the Kingdom is in heaven,”
then the birds of the heaven will be before you.
If they say unto you,
“It is in the sea,”
then the fish will be before you.
But the Kingdom is within you, and it is outside of you.
The Gospel of Thomas

Open the eye of Truth,
Discover the spiritual path.
Put your feet in the way of God
and seek his celestial court.
Once you have glimpsed that glory
you will no longer be attracted
to the tinsel and glitter of this world.
Farid ud-Din Attar

Where are you looking to find me?
I am closer than you imagine.
I am neither in temple nor in mosque,
neither in synagogue nor cathedral,
neither in rites nor rituals,
neither in yoga nor austerities.
If you are a true seeker,
you will see me immediately.
You will meet me in an instant.
Kabir says,
God is the Breath of all breath.

In the city of God is a secret dwelling place —
the lotus of the heart.
Within this dwelling is a space
and within that space
is the fulfillment of all desires.
The secret within that space
should be longed for,
actualized and realized.
As great as the infinite space beyond
is the infinite space within —
the lotus of the heart.
Heaven and earth are contained in that inner space —
fire and air,
sun and moon,
lightning and stars —
Everything is contained in that inner space.
Chandogya Upanishad

Dance like Rumi, sing like Kabir

What was the true purpose of the masters of old? Were the saints, sages, mystics and masters merely here to model how to live a holy life? To tantalize us with their descriptions of the “other side”? Or were they revealing to their followers the holiest of holies, the exquisitely beautiful and powerful source of life and love itself, the kingdom of heaven already within, to be enjoyed any moment they chose?

What was it that made Rumi dance? What made Kabir laugh? What gave Jesus the love to say, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do,” even as he was hanging on a cross? What gave Socrates his wit and wisdom? What gave the Buddha so much joy?

What is the full potential of your life here and now in this moment and every moment? Can you too have a direct connection to the divine light and love that the masters knew? Can you too access the profound wisdom that gave them the ability to love as they did?

Knowledge of the Lord is your birthright. The pure in heart shall see God. Once you decide you sincerely want it, Knowledge is available to you. Read the book and allow your thirst to develop.

With the ability to see and hear and feel what the scriptures praise, your current religion may grow in even more meaning and depth for you. Knowledge will provide you with a lifetime of inspiration.
