“There is no such thing as “getting to heaven.” There is only a knowing that you are already there. There is an accepting, an understanding, not a working for or a striving. You cannot go to where you already are. To do that, you would have to leave where you are, and that would defeat the whole purpose of the journey. The irony is that most people think they have to leave where they are to get to where they want to be. And so they leave heaven in order to get to heaven and go through hell.
Enlightenment is understanding that there is nowhere to go, nothing to do, and nobody you have to be except who you’re being right now. You are on a journey to nowhere. Heaven is nowhere. Let’s just put some space between the w and the h in that word and you’ll see that heaven is now…here.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, in “Conversations with God, Book 1”
