Heaven is called by many names, depending on your particular culture and the part of the world in which you originate. It is called The Field of Reeds or The Field of Aaru in Ancient Egyptian culture. It is called Shambhala in the Hindu and Buddhist cultures. It is called New Jerusalem among other names in Biblical Scriptures, and also Nirvana, Bliss and so on and so forth. No matter what name Heaven is called, everyone desires Heaven as their final destination when they die. The issue with that is this: Heaven is right here on Earth. It does not require that one must be buried six feet in the ground to experience or see it. At present, you cannot actually "see" Heaven in your personal fields of perception, even though it is all around you. This is because your frequency and your vibration are not high enough to enter a world so sacred and holy.

"The Kingdom of Heaven is within you," as the Scriptures states. You must seek the Kingdom of Heaven while you are still a living and breathing soul. God's purpose for your life is for you to reach the destination of Heaven while you are still living and breathing, this is why it is stated in the Scriptures that, "God is a LIVING God," and you must serve God as such. Heaven is not materialism, a large bank account, a large house, designer fashion and so on and so forth. Heaven must be found by seeking and searching within yourself with all your heart, without ceasing until you have reached your destination - while you are still living and breathing. The search for Heaven starts WITHIN. You cannot and will not get there no other way. The Scriptures tells you exactly that when it states, "He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber."

The doors to Heaven are wide open; however, very few will ever find it. The Scriptures tells you, "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." The search for Heaven is everyone's life work. It is the only work required of you by the One True God. When the Scriptures states, "that if any would not work, neither should he eat," it is referring to The Great Work. This is the inner work that everyone must accomplish if you wish to receive the Knowledge required to successfully complete the Spiritual Journey, which leads to Heaven. The doors to Heaven are indeed wide open only to those who are brave and courageous enough to take and complete the journey. Heaven, along with all the other names it is called, sits on the highest mountain. There is no mountain in existence that is higher than the mountain which Heaven sits atop. The climb to the top of Heaven's mountain is the most dangerous. Many give up and turn back mid-climb, others never take the first step because their loved ones cannot accompany them; and many have attempted the journey, but they did not survive.

Seeking Heaven is the most important and the most difficult work you will ever attempt in your whole entire lifetime. For those who are brave and courageous enough to take and complete the journey, even in the face of the darkest fear, the reward is incomprehensible.
