The Path To Heaven

We hear stories about Heaven and many times we listen to our religious leaders when they talk about how do we get there in the afterlife. Many of us believe what they hear in their churches: going to church every Sunday, doing good deeds, reading the Bible and we are done. We will be welcomed when our time will come; even we are doing all these things with only one thought in mind: to be able to go there. However, I would like us to reflect on this teaching. Let us imagine that we did hear nothing and we have been taught nothing. We only know that there is a Heaven and good people will be welcome. What does it make us good people? First of all, unless we become saints, it is impossible to be good at all times. We make mistakes, and in some situations, we are put in a position to chose between a mistake and a bigger mistake. This choice is not the tragedy, and that will not stop us from ascending to Heaven, because God is merciful within unlimited barriers. What do we have to do is to ask for that forgiveness from a lower to a higher stand: first forgive ourselves, then forgive others, after that invite others to forgive us, and in the end, we are ready to pray and ask God for the pass to Heaven.
One major thing that we have to understand within the process is to realize that we cannot do it without meaning, we have to use our hearts and not our minds that automatically create the spoken sentence “I am sorry.” We know when we forgive and ask for forgiveness, our hearts will let us know because the feeling is overwhelming.
What else should we do to find the way to the everlasting happiness? Well, we must pursue our purpose. In my previous article written about two years ago, I have mentioned what our mission is. Please re-read it here.
In short, we already know what our purpose is: to help one another, and help comes in an infinite number of ways. It could be physical help, mental support, or promoting values such as music and art to enrich the soul. That is the main reason that people who chose a job into serving others and do it from the bottom of the heart will gain the privilege much easier.
We should not exclude what our religion taught us, and we can always support the church and the community. That also helps for the unfortunate people, but we should stop doing that as a sufficient way to go to Heaven.
And we must understand that is no religion better than others and just because we are Muslims or Christians is no better than being Jewish or Hindu. Every single one of us has a decisive role in the triumph of humanity, and anyone can achieve Heaven. And the beauty of it is that it does not matter of your social status or cast or any of human-made achievement. Everything resumes to doings toward humanity, to create good Karma and use divine energy.

  1. Jesus Said the Pathway to Heaven is not saving the Earth or Making Heaven on Earth. Each human cam down from Heaven and the Path is Right Behavior, Righteousness.

    Teaching of Jesus is Action Verbs to the Individual Spirit.
    1. “Follow Me back to Heaven
    2. Unless you are born of flesh (in Flesh) and Born Again of Spirit You cannot SEE or Enter Heaven or the Kingdom of Gold.
    3. :Love On Another” because you are Light and Energy of Spirit that has no human/matter characteristics. Although our experience in Matter Consciousness differ experience and interactions, we are what we do in this Physical Material Temporary Time and Space. We are born of flesh with no Remembrances of past cycles. We came down from heaven and must find our spirit in the Flesh experience to return to Heaven. “Follow Me”

    John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

    Mark 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me”. Transcend the physical World to the World of Heaven (Spiritual Consciousness. In body that is Christ Consciousness to Resurrect, Samadhi and Nirvana.

    Spiritual Consciousness Expansion (awareness) of Being in the Matter World, but not of this World. Jesus came down from Heaven as an Avatar to Teach others to “Follow Him” back to Whence we Came.

    Churches are gathering of others following an Individual spiritual Path for Comradery and companionship. Not the Way, the Truth or the (eternal) life, not excess of living for mammon of the physical material world that cannot pass into the Spiritual World.

    Matthew 12:8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

    Matthew 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

    Matthew 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

    Absolutely no different than:

    Patanjali’s Eightfold Path of Yoga: (of Krishna and Buddha). Perfecting the Behavior of the body and mind to BECOME Spirit. “Follow Me” and John 4:24 GOD is “a” Spirit.
    1. Yama (moral conduct): noninjury to others, truthfulness, nonstealing, continence, and noncovetousness
    2. Niyama (religious observances): purity of body and mind, contentment in all circumstances, self-discipline, self-study (contemplation), and devotion to God and guru
    3. Asana: right posture
    4. Pranayama: control of prana, the subtle life currents in the body
    5. Pratyahara: interiorization through withdrawal of the senses from external objects
    6. Dharana: focused concentration; holding the mind to one thought or object
    7. Dhyana: meditation, absorption in the vast perception of God in one of His infinite aspects — Bliss, Peace, Cosmic Light, Cosmic Sound, Love, Wisdom, etc. — all-pervading throughout the whole universe
    8. Samadhi: superconscious experience of the oneness of the individualized soul with Cosmic Spirit
