To Be Like You

BY Eric Sander Kingston
Bringing Heaven to Earth

One day, in the here and now, a small child stood gazing into a great field of illumination. All around the child rainbows and butterflies appeared dancing in a Divine universal opera. The child smiled in soft delight, for they could see how all things were one and unified in this heavenly field of luminous light.  

Suddenly, an angel appeared before the child and gently smiled. Together, the child and the angel ran, danced, and played among the many-colored flowers and green hills in this field. In a boundless joy, they laughed and sang in unified innocence and the child wondered what created this realm of pure beauty. 

In great harmony, they played. Then the angel slowly turned to the child and softly said, “It is time.” The child said, “For what?” The angel replied, “For you to go down to Earth, for this is heaven and you only are a pure soul. I have run, danced, and played with you in this peace-filled field of transcendence so that you may see what is possible for your great mission upon the grand garden called Earth.”

The child paused and slowly looked up into the wide eyes of the angel, beholding its own reflection. The child smiled and understood, like a rising light blossoming in the fields of their heart, the possibility of greatness that every soul possessed within.  

Then, the angel gazed gently into the child’s eyes and beheld its own self, and the angel could see the soul of this child could now understand what it needed to accomplish upon the grand garden the Heavens call Earth. The child took the angel’s hand and they both stared out into the magnificent experience in this field of transcendence and smiled.  

They stood very quietly for a moment until the child spoke softly to the angel, the field and all the Heavens of its soul’s mission…

“I truly see,” said the child, “That the many-colored flowers in this field of transcendence, are in truth one, and yet each variety contributes to the wholeness of this field. Take away one color and the rainbows and peace of the field would be diminished. Displace one green hill and the unified energy of the field would be lessened. Ignore the beauty and diversity of the flowers and the love within would wither. 

Wherever there is the appearance of hate
I will manifest the feeling of love

Wherever there is the decision for war
I will channel the choice to live in peace

Wherever there is the illusion of duality
I will assist others in creating an Earth-garden of unity”

“Now, you understand,” said the gentle angel, “What created this field of transcendence, and what creates all fields of transcendence: The harmonious ways of Unity, Peace and Eternal Love. It is your mission to help humanity bring Heaven down to Earth. To remind those below not what should be but what could be, if only they would choose to see their world the way you see heaven now – through the eyes of the soul that always shines brightly in unity, peace, and love. Because when you get right down to the heart of it, that’s all the Universe truly is.

Now go,
and uplift and connect them all,
and maybe, just maybe,
the Heavens and the angels will one day seek
to be
like you.”

Take 5 Deep Breaths

1. Feel your body.

2. Relax your shoulders.

3. Choose a word that makes you feel peaceful, such as om, peace, or love.

4. Inhale slowly while mentally saying the word you chose. Pause before starting the exhalation.

5. Exhale slowly while mentally saying 1 with the first breath. Exhale saying 2 with the second breath, up to 5 or more.

Feel Your Body

Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes. (Resist any temptation to analyze or think.)
