Good morning Joseth, good morning Roy.
Heaven and hell are places in your heart, they are not actual places that you go to when you die. You will experience either of these places, if they are part of your mind set. Both are mythical occurrences of religious thought. The are as real as you think they are, and will be experienced both before and after your death. Whatever you belief before death you will experience after as your belief system is carried with you as you pass over. Both experiences are temporal and one’s experience changes as they realize they are creating it. It is the same before death, as after, we create our experiences and circumstances.
As you read this you are already experiencing the death of a former lifetime. Where you are now is the heaven or hell that you imagined from a former incarnation. The difference is simply a thought about what you are experiencing. How you were going to experience this lifetime was determined by yourself before you died last time. You are creating your death as you did your life and all its circumstances. Both life and death are continuous and within your choice of how they are to be experienced.
In your lifetimes, you pass through many doors, all created by yourself, urged forward by a desire to recreated yourself in a higher awareness through living and dying and choosing from and endless selection of possibilities. The farther your move towards awareness and enlightenment, the more possibilities exist for you and the more proactive you will be in choosing what you desire.
There is no one pulling the strings, or telling you what you are to choose. You were guaranteed absolute freedom or unconditional love to experience what you desire. Anything else would be conditional and would not work, individuality would be lost. All individualized peaces of the whole are guided by universal laws of nature, but how one experiences them is up to the individual.
Should you decide that you need to be punished in your next life, you will not be disappointed, you will find your hell. If on the other hand you decide that you wish to experience your heaven, that is what you will find the next time around. Both those experiences can be experienced now, with a change in thought. It is the nature of all living things to move towards the light, to move into a state of enlightenment or grace. There is hope for all of you, that your experiences are becoming more joyful as you continue on your path, as your enlightenment brings you only the happiness and joy that you seek. As you become more illuminated, you will make only choices that serve this purpose and all subsequent choices will have higher and higher purpose as you move towards perfection and oneness.
Even as you read this, begin to bring your level of consciousness to a higher level, by thinking only about ways to improve yourself. See the things in your life that bring you what you really desire. Be clear in your mind about what it is, and it will come to you with no effort. Your life is about purpose, your purpose, however you see yourself. Be the best that you can be, and keep moving, never give up or stop growing. Life is movement, stagnation is death, do not count yourself amongst the living dead.
