When you are between lifetimes (the
Inter-Life), there are many destinations in the inner worlds that
you can choose to visit. These include some places that exist but
are widely known but are also widely misunderstood. Here is what
karma teaches about them:
In the inner worlds, there is a place -
created by common agreement - that looks and feels like the traditional
heaven. There are angels, clouds, harps, celestial music, individuals
apparently blissed out from a joy overload, and anything else that
anyone believes heaven to be. There is just one important difference:
if you choose to visit heaven in the inner
worlds, you just may be bored to tears.
Do people love Heaven?
They sure do... because the real heaven is
in the inner worlds. While you are in heaven, you can do, be, or have
anything you want to. You can relive any life. You experience anything
that you can imagine. You can be in your own universe and have it
exactly the way you want it to be. The only problem with heaven is...
is that it is all too easy. You learn nothing. You grow not at all.
You only delay your karma, you do not deny it. After awhile, the pull
of Soul will bring you back to Earth to learn and grow more through
How do people get into Heaven?
They learn to create it for themselves. There
are many happy people in the world today who live lives they totally
enjoy. Vibrant health, abundant wealth, satisfying relationships...
all these can create a heaven on Earth for those who believe it is
possible and who work to achieve it.
Can people live in Heaven permanently?
Absolutely. Feeling like you are in Heaven all
the time is your divine birthright. Karma exists to teach you how to
do this by showing you what is like and unlike love. When you can live
in a state of being and becoming love all the time, you will have
In the inner worlds, there is a place - created
by common agreement - that looks and feels like the traditional hell.
There are devils, pitch-forks, fire & brimstone, people apparently
writhing & screaming in pain, and anything else that anyone believes
hell to be. There is just one important difference:
if you choose to visit hell in the inner worlds,
you can choose to leave it at any time.
Do people suffer in Hell?
They sure do... because the real hell is right
here on Earth. If you do not believe me, ask the following people if
their life is a living hell. Ask those in war-torn areas, in poverty
stricken areas, or in places where people are murdered each and every
day. Ask those who do not have enough to eat or drink, who do not have
good clothes or shelter, or who suffer from excruciatingly painful
diseases. Ask those who have lost a loved one, lost a fortune, or lost
their physical, mental, or emotional health. These people are truly
living in hell.
How do people get put in Hell?
Although people can and do escape human
justice everyday, they can never escape divine justice. A protected
pedophile in one life becomes an abused prostitute in a future one.
A CEO who stole millions in one life becomes trapped in poverty with
no hope of help in a future one.
Can people get out of Hell?
Absolutely. Those who watch "My Name is Earl"
already know how. Make a list of everyone you have ever wronged. Do
what you can now to put right what you once did wrong. Then see what
you can do to make the world around you a better place... and just go
out and do it now!
In the inner worlds, there is a place - created
by common agreement - that looks and feels like the traditional
purgatory. There are dead babies, people apparently lost in darkness,
rain, and anything else that anyone believes purgatory to be. There
is just one important difference:
if you choose to visit purgatory in
the inner worlds, you can choose to leave it at any time for better
is one form of Purgatory. Dannion Brinkley
("Saved by the Light"), who recovered from being struck by lightning,
best described this process of reviewing an individual's life after
death: "As my body lay dead, I was
reliving every moment of my life, including my emotions, motivations,
and attitudes. The depth of emotion I experienced... was amazing.
Not only could I feel the way both I and the other person had felt
when an incident took place, I could also feel the feelings of the
next person they reacted to. I was in a chain reaction of emotion,
one that showed how deeply we affect one another."
Ever wanted to meet Jesus, Abraham, Buddha,
Krishna, Mohammed, Lao Tse, Confucius, or any other historical figure
that you are attracted to? Between lives (purgatory) is your chance.
Or have a fantasy that was never fulfilled in life? Here is the place
to realize it. In the inner worlds, all your dreams can come true even
if they could never be realized physically. Many times, Souls will elect
to "take some time off" from their journey of personal reincarnation
and have these kinds of "transpersonal" experiences in the inner realms.
Remedial Inner Education:
Sometimes everyone will agree that it is in the
individual's best interests to work through certain issues in the
schoolhouses of karma in the inner worlds before returning to a physical
body. This kind of "remedial inner education" is often very unpleasant
much like summer school where the person would rather be playing on
Earth instead of serving time in Heaven (or in what appears to them to
be Hell). Usually this kind of remedial education helps the person work
off intense karma (and is what Catholics call Purgatory).
Many find a belief in heaven to be helpful...
because it motivates them to live a good life so that they will merit a
wonderful, loving place on a cloud. Many find a belief in eternal hell
fires and bleak purgatory to be helpful... because it motivates them to
avoid damnation in those places by making the right life choices now.
Yet there are better and more empowering way to believe that will improve
your cycles of reincarnation by helping you to make better choices now.
Take Every Opportunity:
We have many opportunities to create, achieve,
and excel in life mastery. Yet these opportunities are not endless.
Life changes and what used to be becomes something else. So take every
chance to create, achieve, and excel at what you are dreaming
of... before time swallows them up forever.
Be Grateful for Every Experience:
When you are grateful for each and every
experience of your life, your karma will dissolve. You will be able
to enjoy the here and now so much more fully and deeply. Remember
that there will only be one you as you are now. So cherish every
moment of every experience of your life.
Love the Best You Can:
The greatest opportunity we have in life is to
love ourselves and all others around us. When we have and meet the
goal of loving ourselves and others as best we can, we will find the
greatest peace when we finally do end our cycles of reincarnation.
If you want to end your karma sooner, then love yourself, love others,
and love life the best you can.
