Heaven and hell is right here

What if heaven and hell is nothing but a mind construct? What if they're both part of the human experience? What if we are so afraid to go to hell that we create hell right here? 

Some say religions are for people who don't want to go to hell and spirituality are for those who's already been. - Rob Bell 

This rings so true to me. I believe we can create heaven or hell right here. It's not about our circumstances, it's about how we perceive our circumstances. I gave up on religion partly because of the concept of hell. I don't think anyone deserves to go there, but I do believe that some people create it for themselves in this lifetime. For a while they drag others into their personal hell, but it's up to every individual whether they want to stay there or not. 

Heaven is right here. That's where I choose to live. 

With all my love,


Religion or nothing at all?

What do you believe? Sometimes I hear people talking as if there where only two options, either you join one religion and buy everything linked to it, or you don't believe at all. If those where the only two options, I would reluctantly join one of the major religions. But, it's not the only choices you have. I say choice because I truly believe it's a choice we make, cultivate everyday over time, and then, we realize we've built the trust we need to believe. 

The choice you always have is spirituality. No strings attached. A spirituality where you find the answers and guidance inside, not externally. There are plenty of knowledge, insight, inspiration and experience to get from others on the subject, but ultimately, your spirituality is your own. 

I believe religion steams from the same source as everything else, but it's formed by people who wanted a manual for life and by power structures that wanted to control. It's all the same. What if you where allowed to form your own spirituality, by listening in and by leaning to forums and conversations where you can ask the tough questions and get others perspective to inform and inspire you? What if you are always carried through life? What if there's a power greater, that give you all the power you need? 

With all my love,
