Can there be a Heaven on Earth ?
Yes there can be a heaven on earth, just as there can also be a
Hell on earth.Everything needed by the earth for its growth and
development was put into it by God and human beings inhabiting
it are created or born with the abilities necessary for harnessing
its abundant resources.
In other words we have been given the power to rule over all that
exists on earth by God. This is a great responsibility.
It is therefore in the hands of man to shape the conditions in
which he lives on earth. He can shape these conditions into a
“Heaven on Earth” or a “Hell on Earth”; it is for him to decide
and this decision is reflected in his activities. Right now however,
judging from the activities of the majority, man has chosen to
In the Lord’s Prayer, the “Our Father”, a vow is made to God,
for “His Will to be done on earth as it is done in Heaven”, a
declaration which is also made by members of some other major
religions on Earth. If man had honoured this promise to keep the
Will of God in his daily activities, the World would have been a
much healthier place; a place where love abounds. All he had to
do was to live in love, peace and harmony with the people with
whom he interacts daily. It is not so difficult.
Yet he failed. He became a slave to sin, loving himself only and
carrying out every request of the tempter. He thus spread Evil
and eventually created an empire of Darkness…a hell on earth.
But it is possible to have a Heaven on Earth; a world free of all
the earthly vices; free of jealousy, envy, lust, hatred, avarice,
covetousness, laziness, gossip, suspicion and so many other
Man can bring about this. He has the power, but he must use it
rightly; he must work on himself. There is no other way. When
in each one there is true love for others and no desire to harm
them; not in his thoughts, words, or actions, then the vices
would die naturally and evil would cease. Then the kind of life
experienced in Heaven would have its semblance here on earth.
But if on the other there exist in each one such desires as can
only cause harm to others, evil would always abound and rather
than having a Heaven on earth, we would have a Hell on earth
Man must bear one thing in mind: If his activity is indicative of
a contributor to Hell on Earth, then he cannot be headed
anywhere else after his death but to that region whose life he
had copied while on Earth…HELL. If he cannot adapt to a life
Willed by God, a life in harmony with that in Heaven; if he cannot
adjust his being to a heaven on earth, then all that awaits him is
Eternal Damnation and not Eternal bliss in Heaven. But he
cannot cease to exist. He is Immortal and must therefore continue
to exist somewhere.
Out of the Grace of the Almighty, You have been given the power
to choose; the "freedom of choice". Heaven beckons on you and
you are given all the help you need to stride back Home to it. But
you must decide to stride on the path leading towards it. It is
The time is shorter than you think.
