Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 10

THE PRECIOUS GIFT

Presently we alighted and began to walk across a field. A cool breeze wafted its way towards us and Janet breathed deeply.

“How delicious!” she cried. “Sample it, Bernard, and tell me what that fragrance is.”

I did so. The perfume was exquisite. After several seconds of delight I said I thought . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 10

HEART’S DESIRE

When the angel finished speaking, Janet and I seemed to see life with new eyes. “It does seem easy, after all,” I commented.

“Yes, but man will not find it so. The habits of years have to be overcome, the mind must be trained to dwell in charity. Then there are the other . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 9

HEAVEN ON EARTH

Our angel smiled at us. “Is it not good to see the eternal patience of Heaven’s realm?”

“Oh, it is,” Janet said fervently. “Each one is so happy, yet learning all the time.”

“And not hurried in any way,” I commented.

“It is just one vast scale of growing,” the angel agreed. . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 8

THE SHACK

We were both surprised and delighted at this, for the apparent absence of the King of Love had grieved us. Our angel, however, made us understand that He is there in every place and in every mansion of Heaven’s realm. He said that always He is seen, too, although the inhabitants often mistake . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 7

OVER THE MOUNTAINS

We walked across the plain, treading our way among the hurrying figures. Although they seemed so intent on their tasks, all their faces were happy. Some of them gave us a brief smile as they passed. The children were running about everywhere. Most of them were playing or exploring the hills and . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 6

THOUGHTS

“What an experience that was!” Janet exclaimed as we began to walk through the woods beyond the well.

“It amazed me to see how sure the little shopkeeper was, that the Heaven he sees and lives in is all,” I mused.

The angel gave me a swift glance, grave and searching. “Do you begin . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 5

AT THE WELL

Presently our new friend closed his shop door and we set off up the street. He walked between us, eager to show us everything. The angel followed a little way behind. It seemed strange that nobody noticed him as we passed.

Some of the people were standing at their shop doors and . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 4

THE SHOPKEEPER

Janet and I found ourselves walking across a field beside our guide. It looked quite ordinary – like any field on earth – and so we did not pause, but followed a narrow path which led between trees at the far end. This, we discovered, took us into a winding street. I was . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 3

WE BEGIN OUR JOURNEY

Very soon we had left the Plane Between and were soaring upward through the Void. After our recent experiences among the spheres, it seemed quite small! This, though, immediately made us smile, for in reality it is vast, but I think the strangeness of the glowing stars, the passing chariots of . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 2

INVITATION TO AN ANGEL

Janet and I sat on the verandah of our little house in the Plane Between. Just below us, the foaming waves crept up the golden sand, the sunlight leapt upon the crests of the waves and lay in splendour upon the jutting edges of rocks. Far out upon the horizon, clouds . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 1

THE MOUNTAIN OF WORSHIP

Although we travelled with the speed of light, it seemed a long time before we reached our destination. On the way, our angel talked to us and at last he said that we were to visit ‘by angels’ power’ the Mountain of Worship.

‘However, you have been there before,’ he added . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 15

THE PLACE OF VISION

Janet had been looking at the houses with interest as we went on our way. ‘I notice that every one is different,’ she said at last. ‘Why is that?’

‘It is for two reasons – and for both the classes of people. These babes have often longed for a house different . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 14

THE HEAVEN OF THE ‘BABES’

‘Where do we go now?’ I asked happily. We had had so many adventures that each destination was a new delight and I pressed against our angel gratefully. How patient he had been with us, teaching us deep mysteries, step by step, so that we could understand!

‘It is the . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 13

THE GARDEN OF BREATH

Far into the void we continued our adventurous way. Now we had a vast array of stars to look down upon. Some appeared mere specks in the darkness, others were nearer and their brilliance lit up the surroundings in a blinding radiance. Here and there we passed swift-moving chariots of angels, . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 12

THE PARADISE OF SAINTS

Presently were aware that our movement had ceased. Our angel was poised a little above the sphere, holding us to his sides. He gazed steadily into the great light without anything to veil his eyes and I thought that angels’ sight must be adapted for such radiance. True, our eyes were . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 11

THE FREEDOM OF THE STARS

When we came to ourselves in the Broad Field our angel was sitting beside us with his wings drawn around his head. We sat silent for we knew that he was in meditation. Janet and I had much to occupy our thoughts. We went over all our meetings with our . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 10

SECRET OF JOY

We were thrilled with our experiment and poured out all the details to our dear teacher. He listened attentively and when we had finished he asked us once more where we would like to go.

‘Why, may we travel again already?’ I asked in surprise.

‘You are going to travel a great . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 9

AN EXPERIMENT

‘Now WHERE would you like to travel?’ asked the angel.

‘Is it an unpleasant sensation at first?’ I asked, doubtfully.

‘Why, you have experienced it many, many times-without even knowing!’ our teacher assured us and so we fell to talking – Janet and I – deciding where we should go.

Suddenly I remembered . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 8

THE CAUSEWAY OF CONSCIOUSNESS

‘Just as you needed to concentrate upon the narrow pathway,’ our angel began, ‘so those who cross the Causeway need to concentrate upon their way. The Causeway of Consciousness is the link by which we pass from one plane to another as I have previously explained. Thus you could go from . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 7

THE NARROW WAY

After we had walked for a while we crossed a lawn set about with shapely bushes, having tapering tops and casting deep shadows on the ground. In the midst of this lawn was a well where we paused to drink of the water from its cool depths. As we rested on the . . . → Read More: One Step Higher: Part II: Chapter 6
