Not a place, but a condition

the-kingdom-of-god-is-within-you

“I took the long way around to learn that spiritual masters were not talking in metaphor, but meant literally what they were saying when they told us that he kingdom of God lies within us. The place of our Source and fulfillment an bliss is only found within. Heaven is not a place, but a condition.

“Egocentricity, self-absorption, selfishness? Some will say so. . .It is self-absorption, but the Self that is centered upon in this context doesn’t exclude or stand apart from any other. It includes everyone and everything everywhere, for it is not the self of the isolated ego.”                    –George Fowler, Dance of a Fallen Monk
