The People Who Love Hell Are in Heaven
In the grace and comfort of unity, a spiritual experience encounters a new heaven and a new earth where everything is united. The confusions on the physical plane, the duality of the sins and miseries of the mind are not remembered or renewed in the spiritual experience. In the present moment harmony we see the balance and unity of opposites because a center of heaven on earth has glory in our sorrows when we are at our lowest point we are also the most open to change and a new life. The beast in us can lay in peace with our innocence in our renewal where we become whole or holy. We just need a paradigm shift so the mind in not trapped in the brain and opens to the awareness of being a part of the unified force field where we interact with the universe. If we make this shift in consciousness our story becomes a love story and we stop blaming others for our misfortune as we reinterpret our memories, which in Christianity is the process of forgiveness. Science is helping us to reinterpret the universe by showing us that everything in the universe is connected without boundaries or restrictions; therefore, as we are a part of the universe we are totally responsible for our character and our choices. Ignore the criticisms and judgments of the mind and listen to the Divinity within because the mind is asking the questions, but it is the soul that answers them. We begin to see through the soul’s perspective when we realize our connection to the universe, open ourselves to love and let the soul show the way. We are in and a part of the infinite, but somehow we do the most difficult thing, which is to separate ourselves from infinity with our mind. The spirit is always there connected with everything in eternity; we just need to remove the obstructions that keep us from it. Jung called the harmonizing, the awareness of our unity with the infinite synchronicity. “Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.” (Carl Jung) God is in the present moment, but if you try to grasp or control this instant it is not there. The past, the present and the future are in the here and now along with God, they are not in the future. The problem is we are living in our mind in either the past or the future while eternity is happening right now. Christian Mysticism communicates to us that we can’t contain or restrict the present moment because it is infinity and we have free will, but there is a way to slow down, know and experience the harmony, synchronicity and peace in the present moment. God is always there, we are the ones that are sporadic, sometimes here and sometimes there in infinity in an ocean of pure consciousness while our individuality acts like a wave, connected and separate on the surface. The mind is in the space time continuum so it can imprison and constrict our identity by presenting us as a mind, brain and body, but we are not in them because they are within us. We just need to start identifying with the soul or wave that is connected to the ocean of pure consciousness to feel lighter and brighter, but the difficulty is in silencing the mind. Jesus said, “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” This provides us with a functional answer to the many problems of our present life because this call for love tells us that we are united and that no other person is separate or apart in God’s spiritual encounter. Recognizing that we are all one in God’s mindfulness gives us full protection in His unity by integrating our individual life with the world around us and providing a basic harmony and equilibrium in our hearts and minds. This quiets the mind because creation becomes a tapestry of loving relationships at different levels. The delight and mental high begins with loving who you are at this time no matter what you have done as we need to start at a level we are capable of accepting. It is not a matter of waiting until we have reached an elevated level or certain intensity because all states of love and unity are available right now. Love is timeless with all possibilities in the past and future existing now in the unity of this present moment so we can love the impurities we start with because they are the motivating factor to awaken the self. We are in the infinite and are not going to pass through infinity without making a mistake. The people who love hell are in heaven because in their peace they can deal with anything, are not afraid of anything and know that nothing happens by chance, but by choice. The mystics of every religion talk about this unity, the new physics is talking about it and the Christian mystics past and present are talking about it in the closet of the church. The problem is the church keeps it secret with a locked door that is hard to get in and out of. Thomas Carlyle, a Calvinist stated that the soul gives unity to what it looks at with love. The soul knows things the mind does not understand so no one can threaten, offend or upset us if we are standing inside it because it can go so high negativity can’t reach it. Christian Mysticism

Christian Mysticism is not the end of our problems in life because they are openings for our soul to reveal an inner link with the spirit. The soul not only accepts waves from the physical world in the form of light and vibrations, but insights from the spirit. The physical body assembles our sense organs to put together perceptions from the material realm while the spiritual world forms the channel to communicate intuitions. The soul brings together both the body and the spirit by being open to the revelations involving the higher dimensions as well as the sensations that deal with the lower elements of the body. The body, soul and spirit are in unity and can be expressed in our existence as our consciousness. Therefore, developing the mindfulness and recognition of this unity enlarges and expands our consciousness so we can transcend the limits of our intellect. Our mind still submits information to our consciousness, which is greater than reason and intangible to our senses, but our being is magnified and improved because of it. Our consciousness is in contact with a vast amount of information that the intellect does not know that is very relevant for our survival and happiness. Being mindful of our consciousness is the first step towards self-mastery and bringing into our awareness that which is already a part of our self, resulting in a new aspect of our-self manifesting. We are not creating something out of nothing, but discovering how to merge and be involved with our body, mind, soul and spirit as a unit something that our mind and body were not familiar with and could not set in motion. Our insecurities are due in part to our ignorance and limited perception of this unity and it is exactly what we have perceived to be missing in our life, but this expanded spiritual intelligence is within us and has been there all the time. The body, mind, soul and spirit are working together as one and are leading us to the state of consciousness called The Kingdom of Heaven. This combination is a gestalt; as physical, biological, psychological and spiritual arrangement that unifies the parts to be more than and different from the combination of parts. We are many parts, we are every part together and we are one with a deeper conceptions and impressions of ourselves and the universe. We are powerful beyond comprehension and extremely susceptible at the same time so we have his uncanny ability to observe and consider rich, multiple meanings from a single line in the Bible. When we move in the different dimensions of our consciousness, we witness the Divinity within ourselves, in all things and in all people who have ever lived. In the spirit we know phenomena instantly through and through because it is not limited by the physical sphere of influence with restrictions and constructs. In this raised consciousness we are experiencing what Jesus described thousands of years ago, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2) Aware of the soul as a reliable source of life, we know God is within us and at the same time inside everyone and everything else even though our mind is conditioned to believe otherwise.

I feel in the heart of everyone, God comes, and God goes in the form of pure consciousness. It is not that the pure consciousness is not there, but the awareness is not there. When the heart and the mind become vast, deep and limitless, then Christ makes a heaven in that graceful heart, and pure consciousness and bliss prevails. The experience is recognized as love and peace. Christians and non-Christians have this experience. In the absence of this experience especially among my fellow Christians arrogance, separation and even hatred arises, divisions of every sort fragment the mind and heart. I feel it is the responsibility of our Christian leaders to educate others of this experience, but first they must find it in themselves. Many times it is the ones without the experience of silence that preach the loudest without knowing the inner meaning of the words.

Gratitude does not need anything on the part of the individual except innocence and simplicity. No effort is needed and it must devoid of any intellectual play or emotion. Gratitude is a surrender to God and is never on the level of thinking. If one doesn’t like the word God it is just being or surrender to the higher self. I feel we need to surrender the thinking to make a mood for gratitude or surrender the thinking level of gross consciousness to achieve the bliss and gratitude of a higher awareness. It seems gratitude and joy come together as a package and is a kind of spiritual practice that can be awakened. Christian Mysticism

Rom 12:2 Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect.
The Spirit is always there so we must transform and enlarge our personal consciousness and individual experience with the Holy Spirit. This is basic to every mode of spiritual discernment, and every quest.The more we are aware of Spirit working in and through everything, especially within ourselves, the more God’s presence can replace prior limitations and disharmonies with good. Our minds will act on the new ideas that are formed and form a new, more positive belief and attitude. This deep understanding sees the good of God everywhere and always present. This shift in attitude brings greater freedom; peace and joy so we need to give up the old worries, free ourselves and replace old ideas with the knowledge that everything we need is available. When we recognize Spirit and pull into life revelation, discernment and right choices are made.
Isn’t amazing how throughout the ages mystics of all stripes and religions have plugged into almost universal concepts of love, unity and oneness, compassion and justice for all, regardless of their culture or religion.

Christian religion seems to be the study of trees and counting the rings while Christian Mysticism is concerned with sending the roots deeper into the experience. I think one can study the orchard and expand one’s branches and roots at the same time, but the institutions seem more comfortable with the words and so they deny the experience.
In our endeavor to understand life we experiment externally, which is science in order to understand the laws of life internally, which is spirituality. As we see the universal laws unfold and how they apply to our mind, we understand our relationship to the whole. By being good we find out what makes us happy and by being bad we find sadness, therefore to be content and happy we must find the best way to live. To live a good life we must deliver an unconscious pattern into a conscious system, which is what spirituality does for us. It is just as important to understand our internal self, as it is to understand the external self in order to be healthy and happy. We need to learn to watch the inner reactions of the mind, the same way we observe events in the outer world for self-preservation; consequently, our mind becomes aware of itself.
I feel the Church needs to spend more time directing people to the interior life and not worry so much about the exterior facade that takes so much of the Church’s resources. Christian Mysticism

To the person engrossed in pure consciousness even pain is fruitful, for all things work together for the good of the whole even sin is a commitment to greater love because it humbles bringing out the best. It shows how the ego will act contrary to the will of God so a person will rise above sin by turning to pure consciousness, God acts as if the sin had never been committed. God’s consciousness is in the present so He would never let former sins count against a person. God accepts people not for what they have been, but for what they are now. Sin is just a way to bring man to a better knowledge of his love and make him more determined to struggle for pure consciousness.
