When you recall the ancient phrase, “As Above So Below,” ponder this statement: “What is above really is below.” The true question is this: “Is there really an above and a below or Is it all ONE eternal infinite existence?”

Everything is all one thing, all together. There really is no separation. Separation is the ultimate illusion. As you know, when you observe the earth from so-called space, everything is ONE. There is no beginning and no end to creation. You can call it “the big bang,” but we all know that this is not the basis or foundation of creation. There is no separation. Heaven is earth and earth is heaven.

All of the ancient scriptures have tried in many different ways to convey the absolute illusion of separation in their writings. In the bible, in the Book of Genesis, it states: “And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven.” Nothing is separated…the only thing divided is the water. Everything else is one whole continuation of eternal and infinite existence.

When the disciples asked God to tell them when would heaven come, God told the disciples, “Do not look here or there. For heaven has already come, but you do not see it.” If you allow others to give you their interpretation of heaven and earth, you will remain lost in their translation of things. Your perception of reality will always be different from the reality of others. No two people will ever look at one thing and see the same thing. Just because the color is red does not mean two people will see the exact same shade of red. Life is designed this way on purpose. No two life paths will ever be the same. There may be similar life occurrences, but the life experience will always be different. We each have our own individual personalities, and they are as different and unique as our fingerprints.

Many are called to take the path to the discovery of infinite eternity; however, very few are chosen to actually see and experience such wonder. Why? Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Most people want to take a short cut, but there are no short cuts to eternal life. You either take the journey or you don’t. God states in the scriptures, “You must bear your own cross and follow Him or you cannot be His disciple.” This is the most important work one will ever do in their entire lifetime.

Many people give up the search once they enter the darkness, but it is only in the darkness that light can come. The darkness is the journey and the light is the reward; thus, you will then learn to actually see and know, “As Above So Below.” It is solely up to you to determine how long you choose to stay in the darkness. Many have never made it out.
