Heaven on Earth

Updated: Sep 26, 2023

This post is short and heavenly …

The other day I was walking through Heathrow airport at chicken-thirty in the morning and I noticed how happy I was feeling. It didn’t seem to matter that I only had about three hours sleep before being picked up by a taxi at 3am. I felt great.

Everything in the airport seemed beautiful to me. The people at the check-in desk, the security team, my fellow passengers, the plants, even the pictures on the wall, EVERYTHING! It was like I was safely cocooned inside a happiness bubble. It felt like what I imagine heaven is like … full of love, peace and beauty!

The awesome thing is that this wasn’t just a one-time thing. I’ve been feeling this way ever since I finished reading the book ‘The Four Agreements’ by Don Miguel Ruiz. When I finished this book, I committed myself to living my life by these agreements:

  1. Be impeccable with your word.

  2. Don’t take anything personally.

  3. Don’t make assumptions.

  4. Always do your best.

Making good on these agreements can be difficult and is a work in progress, but since I’ve been trying, my life has felt down right heavenly.

I’m not convinced that there is a heaven to spend eternity, and I don’t want to wait until I’m dead to receive life’s rewards! I feel like I already hit the jack pot simply by being born, and I am committed to experiencing heaven on earth by living the hell out of life!

"Enjoy life. This is not a dress rehearsal." --Nietzsche
