It’s Here Now, So Should You Be Too

“Every moment is utterly unique and will not beheaven on earth continued in eternity. This fact gives life its poignancy and should concentrate your attention on what you are experiencing now.I think that’s washed out a bit by the notion that everyone will be happy in heaven. You had b  etter be happy here, now. You’d better experience the eternal here and now. Being ‘happy with Him forever in heaven’ means that while you are here on earth, you should be happy: that is to say, your life should be identified with the divine power, the eternal power in all life. If you concentrate the symbol of heaven, the whole situation disintegrates. You think, for example, that eternity is there, and your life is here. You believe that God, the source of energy, is there, and you are here, and He may come into your life or He may not. No, no— that source of eternal energy is here, in you, now.  —Joseph Campbell
