At the Chapel…
We affirm that Heaven and Hell are two states of living here and now. That these are not two places “somewhere” but are the result of living in the now’ heaven when we are living within the proper framework, and hell when we live not in harmony with the Universal Laws.
Some quotes about heaven & hell…
- Luke 17:21, “the Kingdom of Heaven is within you.”
- Mark Twain
- “I understand that when you go to Heaven you will study and progress, you study and progress and study and progress and if that isn’t Hell I don’t know what would be”.
- “You go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company.”
- Paulo Coelho
- “Life moves very fast. It rushes from Heaven to Hell in a matter of seconds.”
- John Milton
- “The mind is a universe and can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”
- “To different minds, the same world is a hell, and a heaven.”
What are Universal Laws?
- Non interference, no distractions, moderation.
- Love, karma, progression, change
- Like attracts like, reincarnation, evolution from simple to complex to simple
- The innate order of the universe
Heaven and Hell are a choice… Our choice.
- Your decision, it’s your choice
- attitude, control, acceptance, attachment, resistance, love
- Hell — no peace, not in harmony, suffering
- a mind and emotions running amuck, out of control
- nothing can be seen or heard through the thunder of the mind
- Heaven — harmony, peace, happy
- a mind in control, emotions in control
- a mountain lake, reflecting it’s surroundings.
When one is in control, they are in control.
- Horoscope, email, text (or not.)
