Finding heaven here and now

Two preschoolers were talking, and one was vividly describing what she planned on doing and becoming when she grew up. Determined to impress her friend, she concluded with a flourish, "And someday I'm going to be an angel!" The other girl said, with a surprised look, "Why, I'm an angel now!" With childlike candor this youngster had touched upon a profound spiritual fact—she was accepting as immediate the perfection of her heavenly being.

Are you accepting heaven now? Are you basking in your divine perfection and infinite harmony? Or are you thinking you will reach harmony and perfection sometime in the future when something changes? You can stop dwelling in the mortal sense of being, waiting for a future heaven and harmony. You can rejoice because in reality you are perfect now. Start accepting heaven.
