heaven is here

Paul at People for Others says:

 

Joan Chittister reminds us of something important:
“To be enlightened is to know that heaven is not “coming.”
Heaven is here. We have simply not been able to realize that yet because,
like King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail, we look in all the wrong places,
worship all the wrong idols, get fixated on all the wrong notions of God.
We are always on our way to somewhere else when this place,
the place in which I stand, wherever it is, is the place of my procession into God,
the site of my union with the Life that gives Life.”

If only I could remember that more often.
