Religion imagines a better reality to come later – after death or some sort of apocalyptic end to our current world. Many people are anxiously awaiting the passing of this world in order to get to Heaven, the perfect place and paradise.
However, our world first appeared as a paradise in the Book of Genesis.
Why do we not see that the state of our world currently has been created and conditioned by our way of understanding, acting and being? It’s convenient to expect God to swoop in and clean up or set ablaze the mess that we made. That’s not going to happen. God has done everything God is going to do, which includes you being a bona fide human manifestation of God’s essence and nature.
Think of the impact Jesus had as one person and a 30-year life on earth. And yet Jesus said we would do greater things than he did.
The big miracle is not escaping this earth; it’s transforming it.
