“God is supremely present, with total attention and total love. The more like God we are, the more ‘in Heaven’ we are. The alternative to Heaven is not earth. Heaven and earth are not exclusive alternatives, not opposites. The alternative to Heaven is Hell. Hell is absence, the refusal of I-thou presence, of consciousness and love.”
– Peter Kreeft, “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Heaven”
Heaven is here, now, living in God’s presence. Heaven or Hell is a matter of how we use our attention, where we focus, and how we are present. It’s a glass half empty/glass half full kind of choice — how you look at things. Or how you look away.
