heaven

A Quote by Saint Seraphim of Sarov on god, faith, action, growth, healing, heaven, peace, spirit, kingdom, and sorrows

Bear sorrows for the sake of the Heavenly Kingdom.  Without sorrows there is no salvation.  On the other hand, the Kingdom of God awaits those who have patiently endured.  And all the glory of the world is nothing in comparison.  My joy!  I implore you to acquire a peaceful spirit.

A Quote by Saint Tikon of Zadonsk on god, christianity, heaven, heart, mercy, conscience, love, sin, compassion, and gratitude

It is demanded of us, Christians, that we receive these heavenly and most sweet tidings {the Gospel} gratefully as they are sent from Heaven, and that from a pure heart we always give thanks to God our Benefactor,  Who so freely had mercy on us, and that we show holy obedience and compliance in all thankfulness.  For conscience itself instructs and convinces us to be thankful to our Benefactor.  He loved us who are unworthy.  Let us also love Him Who is worthy of all love.  Love requires that we never offend the beloved.  God is offended by every sin.  Let us keep away from every sin and let us do His holy will that we may not offend Him as our compassionate Father and Benefactor.

A Quote by Blessed Theophylact on god, christianity, kingdom, heaven, happiness, life, souls, heart, choices, and faith

The kingdom of God is always present for him who desires and wills it.  When a man's disposition and way of life are like that of an angel, most assuredly this is the kingdom of God.  For God indeed is said to rule as King when nothing worldly meddles in the governing of our souls and when in every respect we live not in this world.  This manner of life we have within us, that is to say, we have within us when we desire and will of it.  We do not need to wait a long time, or until our departure from this life; instead, faith and a God-pleasing life, which accompanies faith, are very near us.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on divine, inspire, love, transformation, empowerment, peace, light, and heaven

We all have a divine mission on earth. Let that mission be to inspire love and embrace the light within. Let that mission be to have peace in our hearts as we create heaven on earth. Let that mission be to seek empowerment through transformation and to breathe joy into everything we do. If we allow these things to be our mission the golden light of the sun will shine on our souls and change our world forever.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on soul, humanity, light, spirit, destiny, earth, heaven, vision, miracle, and birth

My soul is dressed with beams of light that i may serve as a beacon to those in the shadows who are seeking vision and spirit. By bringing earth closer to heaven we can all give birth to the magnificence of our own being. Ours is a journey of compassion and transformation, by breathing in the moment we cultivate spiritual wellbeing and celebrate the miracle of life. Let your global soul create a new humanity.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on fear, god, and heaven

Live. If you live, God will live with you. If you refuse to run his risks, he’ll retreat to that distant heaven and be merely a subject for philosophical speculation. Everyone knows this, but no one takes the first step, perhaps for fear of being called insane.

A Quote by Ankit Shukla on love, night, heart, and heaven

In the silence of night I have often wished,
For just a few words of love from my love,
Grant this wish of mine o lord,
If you really are somewhere in the heavens above...

A Quote by Byron Katie on heaven, thoughts, awakening, enlightenment, belief, happiness, and stress

So, how do you get back to heaven? To begin with, just notice the thoughts that take you away from it. You don't have to believe everything your thoughts tell you. Just become familiar with the particular thoughts you use to deprive yourself of happiness. It may seem strange at first to get to know yourself in this way, but becoming familiar with your stressful thoughts will show you the way home to everything you need.
