I just had a discussion of sorts at Huffington Post trying to defend reiki to one of those people who say they are scientific and therefore reject it, but do so without doing actually testing out their theory in any way, which I think is extremely UNscientific. Anyway, I've used up my own creativity and I opened an email from a woman named Sally Jordan Austin and thought it was a lovely thing to share this evening.
Heaven is an opening within your heart to receive love, it is noticing the pattern in the clouds even as they begin to dissolving with the warming sun.
Heaven is a smile upon a stranger's face or a sudden suprise of an unexpected experience of joy.
Heaven can be found in taking a moment to play that brings forth such a well of happiness within, that you naturally wish to extend to others. Heaven can be found by making the choice to see yourself and this world in a new way: to look for the best that has always been apparent, but may have been obscured by the clouds of one's mind.
In choosing to smile at life, heaven can be created as a way of being that opens the door of hopefulness to all that may be possible. Heaven can be noticing what's there, rather what is absent. Heaven can be a kiss of sunshine on the face of the day, that you thought only held rain.
Transformation of life can occur in a moment when we set aside our problems, embrace what is new and taste the warm waters upon which life rests. Heaven may exist on our doorstep and in our hearts, or in a change in our experience that flows from the synchronicity that is noticed, when we allow our life to sing with heaven's blessings.
