I'll try to explain...Imagine you have been in love for the longest time...
take a man and a woman...for some reason it is forbidden...maybe there is a boyfriend,
maybe no interest is being shown from them....but you long for this person...
a scent they may leave in a room, a memory of some glance your way sustains you till the next time you see her...then....one day...she allows you to come close...she accepts and
invites your touch ...just your touch...a finger on a hand, on a forearm...she moans a little...
because she has been waiting, also.

You swoon. Period.
You are filled with such an ecstatic thrill....you have no heart anymore because it has melted into warm butter over your entire being....your chest wants to explode and yet magically, somehow, you can maintain this overwhelming feeling that makes your knees weak.

Should I go on? When in Heaven or State of Awareness of His Divine Presence....
touching a gate latch with my thumb is like touching touching God Himself....or in human terms touching your beloved you have longed for for so long.

The surroundings I'm in are electrified...alive, breathing...distant mountains...the tree, the rocks...the Doors of Perception have been opened by sheer Grace.
There is an invisible breeze blowing from nowhere through everything i see...alive, pulsing with love like an ecstasy few
have known...atoms swirling around me...all conscious, all love.
The walls, the ceiling are no longer made of drywall...they are held together by sheer love
'looking like' walls....beaming love into me. I am aware of 'Him'...He has allowed me to see.

It is shocking how much this body can actually withstand of this almost unbearable Divine Love.❤️
Like I said, I love your posts. I don't think I'm the type of person who would experience God/heaven in this sort of "electrified" way. I'm not built like that (I won't discount the possibility, I just don't assume it will be the same for me). Which is why I enjoy hearing about it from your very unique and exuberant point of view. For me, it's more pragmatic and quiet. There have been breakthrough moments of insight and epiphany, but for the most part it has been a gradual awakening to and awareness of God's presence, accompanied by a change of perspective, and spiritual and mental healing.

Well, you asked what it was like to be in Heaven...not the silent, slow seeking of Heaven
or the sweet gradual awakenings preparing to accept the experience
of what I would call the Biiss that Heaven is.

I can write articles on the subject on the practical, gradual awakening to and the awareness of God's Divine Presence.
I can talk about discipline, pitfalls, diet, the adjustment of core belief systems that lay in the unconscious
mind limiting us like paperchains, better times to meditate...
even breathing and yoga techniques that can aid a person
like tilling and preparing the soil for Divine Insights, Visitations...for God to
visit you inside intimately, while turning your exterior world into a Magical Kingdom for your eyes.
Just sayin'...I stayed on answering the question.

I wasn’t taking issue with your post, Miss H. I was just saying my experience is different, which is why I love hearing about yours.

I know you weren't ...it was like we were talking about 2 diff things, tho. My quiet waiting for slow awakenings
and epiphanies is the same as anybody's... or sitting preparing a place for the Holy Spirit within.
[Talking to Mystic here, also...hi]

Gary Renard asked his Advanced Spirit Guides (dunno what to call them) what Heaven was like in the book "The Disappearance of the Universe"...one said it was like taking your best org**m times 10,000 .....that never ends.
Gary in his usual way said, "Now you've got my attention."
Saying this from memory.
I could talk about that, also, from my experience...head to toe...oh my...haha...no drugs.

These moments of Grace with profound changes in perception are amazingly wonderful and life changing. Wow.
They can chhange an agnostic in a blink of an eye.
Staying for looong periods ...months, years in these states of transcendence takes prep....and, always Grace! Praise God.
Ya know what can take us out of months of being in this blissful Heaven 24/7? Illness...wow can we ever come down to earth, so to speak!! It's actually shocking. Years of mental focus helps with that....

I know I went off topic maybe..I do that.

Sometimes i imagine what kind of Grace was on those people to willingly , smilingly go into a lion's arena
for Roman enjoyment,...now that was solid, unshakeable faith...eh?
They were transported to "a Place"....the Zone! !

I was thinking we were talking about the same thing, just different ways of experiencing it. But you would know better than I.

(Are you saying you are physically ill at the moment? I wasn’t sure why you were bringing up illness.)

You are talking about the same thing - experiencing God, Pleroo. Each of us who seek sincerely for answers can do so through devout prayer, some through meditation, some through simply being quiet and experiencing nature, and, regrettably, some through drugs and other mind-altering chemicals. I say regrettably for the latter because although it will give you access, it will be an undisciplined and chaotic access that can be quite devastating as the drugs simultaneously release unfettered (and uncontrollable) access to our unconscious - the source of dreams AND NIGHTMARES. The lack of sober conscious control under those conditions can be devastating.

Nope, not ill ...but...talk to others, if they are in a 'place' for months or years...there is nothing that can bring one out of some Heavenly place faster than illness! Wow.

Drugs...they can get you high....high enough to see over the fence...but then you
must come (fall) down.
There is a door through the fence
...it's a low door, you must bow your head to get through to stay.

A little story I was taught by an Indian teacher.
