Back in the day, someone asked Socrates where he would like to go. Socrates replied that he didn’t know for sure if there was a heaven or a hell and so he couldn’t choose between them.
What he reflected upon was this, stating that it was his only prayer: “Allow me to be alert wherever I am; for then whether I am in heaven or hell, it would be irrelevant; for when I am fully alert, hell disappears”.
Hell is the state of not being aware.
Hence, if one is fully aware, heaven appears.
Heaven is the state of being fully aware.
Such is the power of the mind, of thoughts, of inner states of being. A simple story with great implication.
May you always stay alert and ready to be in heaven. Keep the switch of awareness on.
Be where you want to be, by choosing carefully to stay aware.
One of the implications of this simple story is that if I choose to remain aware of who I am ~ the being of light, the eternal, unlimited soul, powerful and loving, the master almighty authority of this body then I will be in a state of truth and experience happiness!
Such is the power of truth. Hold fast to this truth. Choose your state of awareness. It is the most important choice you make each day. Remember as soon as you awake in the morning and for at least the first ten minutes of every day, that I the soul am a being of Light; I come from another world, a world of light, to bring light into this earthly world. As you meditate upon these thoughts, you will light up the way into your day.
Return to this thought often. Always remember who you are! It is the first lesson!
Aloha Lovely Soul,
Thank you so much for coming to visit me at Enlightened Answers.!
I really love it when souls find benefit in what I'm writing.
These writings are based on daily spiritual study and meditation which when applied in life create a truly valuable way of life for the present and future lives as well.
It has been such a wonder to be tucked away in the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for 27 years. The past 20 have been on the oldest and most serene island of the Hawaiian chain~the northern most island of Kauai.
Most people don't realize that Hawaii is made up of a chain of seven islands, sometimes related to the seven chakras of the human body. As Kauai sits at the top of the chain; it is often called the "crown" of the Hawaiian islands.
Who am I? I am a spiritual elder and practitioner of Raja Yoga Meditation. I am a healer of hearts because I have surrendered to the Almighty who has healed mine. I offer Spiritual Empowerment sessions that assist with building trust, faith, and strength in the Self.
For each of the past eight years, I've had the wonderful fortune to have traveled to northern India to the Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University on Mt. Abu, Rajasthan.
This wonderful place is also called Madhuban, which means Forest of Honey. It is a pilgrimage place dedicated to the Remembrance of God; a place to attend classes, a place to meditate by yourself or with many others; and a wonderful place to commune with like-hearted souls. It is an exceptional container reserved for souls who wish to live according to the highest codes of conduct. It is a place designed for souls to have a deep, rich, and loving meeting with the Supreme Soul. My annual journeys here have enriched my life immeasurably, beyond words.
Who am I? I am a peaceful soul who honors the peaceful soul of you. I am a lover of Truth and hope that you are able to glean deep soul answers in these writings which I , who once who was so lost and who is now found, shares with you.
Take the jewels that touch you, make them your own, and share them, for giving and receiving is a good part to play at this time of transformation of souls and of the earth.

Many Blessings from My Heart to Yours,
