Are The Dead Still In Heaven?

Beyond Earth's Illusions

Are the dead still in heaven? Or do they return
To this earth or one like it or one alien
To this one altogether? Do they become bored
After eons of blissfully praising our Lord?
Are they crazy enough to go through this again?
Does this place for them generate cause for concern?

I know I’ll go to heaven despite my bad deeds.
One hellish life review I will have to go through
Until I find the pathway to God’s loving light.
Am I here to discover what is wrong from right?
Or am I to be guided in all that I do?
Sometimes I’m caught up in the spiritual weeds.

The nonphysical part of me projected here
In this physical body experiences
That which causes expansion in the here and now
But also through eternity. I can allow
My ongoing becoming. My life commences
When I see death as nothing so dark and austere.

Born again I am each time that I realize
That my life is eternal. I never lose sight
Of the sense of my being me no matter where
Or when I am occurring. This life is a prayer
Of thanksgiving and mercy. I remain contrite
Until this lesser part of me finally dies.

More Souls In Heaven

The Perpetual Spiritual Balance

Nearly eight billion people there currently are
On this little old planet. That seems quite a lot,
But the population is not at its highest.
There have been times before when the planet was blessed
With much more than this many. This means we are not
In a popular crisis. We’ve not grown that far.

But where do all the souls come from? This I must ask
From my unique perspective as one single clump
Of a lump with some consciousness. It’s not easy
To see past the illusion that registers me
As a part of this time space reality dump.
So to answer the question now becomes my task.

Consciousness is nonphysical right from the start
Which in fact is eternal. It is flexible
And fluid in expression. I am not assigned
To one piece of the puzzle though I am inclined
To believe I’m a separate humanhood full.
As I look at this closely it’s not very smart.

I am from the nonphysical energy stream
From which come multifaceted consciousnesses
All experiencing this dimension as one.
Eternal is the being who’s ever begun
With an infinite number of ways to express.
In terms of the nonphysical, life is a dream.

There Is Only Attraction

Opposites Ignored

When someone does something I believe isn’t right
It may feel like assertion. They did this to me.
Their action is deliberate. There is intent.
Would it be worth my while if I chose to resent
This person and respond in the highest degree
With some form of aggression? I’m not one to fight.

No such thing as assertion in this universe
Does exist because there is only attraction.
If something happens to me, I invited it
Through vibrational patterns I often transmit.
It is hard not to feel that some wrong has been done
But to cling tightly to it is truly a curse.

What this person is at best is a component
Who is fully cooperative with regard
To my subconscious conditioning through the years.
If I feel like a victim and have many fears
Then my vulnerability will make life hard.
Circumstances recurring will cause much lament.

My two points of attraction – the bad and the good –
Represent my emotional guidance system.
How I feel is an indicator of the way
I attract what I’m getting. So, I can obey
What the system is telling me. I can’t condemn
And rejoice at the same time. Indeed no one could.
