Heaven Where We Are
Christ Jesus said, "The kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matt. 4:17; But in spite of his assurance many earnest Christians have believed that the kingdom of heaven is an undiscovered place where it is possible they may go after their earthly existence has come to an end; others, somewhat more enlightened, have concluded that it is not a place, but they are at a loss to explain what it is or how one may enter it.
Jesus used parable after parable to bring to his followers the understanding of what constitutes the kingdom of heaven. Three of these parables are recorded in the thirteenth chapter of Matthew. They describe the man who bought a field containing treasure, the merchantman who by selling all he had was able to buy a pearl of great price, and the man who separated the tares from the wheat in time of harvest.
Christian Science interprets the words and works of Jesus in a manner that enables those who accept its teachings to emulate him in daily life. This Science explains that heaven is a spiritually mental state which man enjoys as the reflection of God, the one Mind. Mrs. Eddy's definition of "heaven," given in Science and Health, reads, "Harmony; the reign of Spirit; government by divine Principle; spirituality; bliss; the atmosphere of Soul." Science and Health, p. 587;
