New Heaven, New Earth

Today while driving, I was struck with the phrase out of the Bible concerning a New Heaven and a New Earth. If we could interpret Heaven as a beautiful state of mind and we believe that as we change our own mind we change our conditions, then we can see why a new experience of Heaven will bring about a new experience of Earth (or our conditions). Thus we seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all else is added to us.

The more I practice my “New Thought” religion, the more all the ancient wisdom teachings make sense.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
