Eben-Alexander

Love is, without a doubt, the basis of everything. Not some abstract, hard-to-fathom kind of love but the day-to-day kind that everyone knows-the kind of love we feel when we look at our spouse and our children, or even our animals. In its purest and most powerful form, this love is not jealous or selfish, but unconditional

Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander

Check back tomorrow for my review of this novel!

We can only see what our brain’s filter allows through. The brain– in particular its left-side linguistic/logical part, that which generates our sense of rationality and the feeling of being a sharply defined ego or self– is a barrier to our higher knowledge and experience.
—  Eben Alexander
we see the universe as a place full of separate objects (tables and chairs, people and planets) that occasionally interact with each other, but that nonetheless remain essentially separate. on the subatomic level, however, this universe of separate objects turns out to be a complete illusion. in the realm of the super-super-small, every object in the physical universe is intimately connected with every other object. in fact, there are really no ‘objects’ in the world at all, only vibrations of energy, and relationships.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

Poem by David M. Romano in 1993

I read this in “Proof of Heaven” by Eben Alexander.

By David Romano
(copyrighted 1993)

When tomorrow starts without me
And I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today;
While thinking of the many things
We didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me …
As much as I love you;
And each time that you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand.

She said my place was ready
In heaven far above;
And that I’d have to leave behind,
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye;
For all my life, I’d always thought
I didn’t want to die.

I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do;
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad;
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday
Just even for awhile,
I’d say goodbye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized
That this could never be;
For emptiness and memories
Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things
I might miss come tomorrow;
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through heaven’s gates
I felt so much at home;
When God looked down and smiled at me
From His great golden throne.

He said, “This is eternity
And all I’ve promised you;
Today your life on earth is past,
But here it all starts anew.”

“I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last;
And since each day’s the same day,
There’s no longing for the past.”

“But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true;
Though at times you did do things,
You knew you shouldn’t do.”

“But you have been forgiven
And now at last you’re free;
So won’t you take my hand

And share my life with me?”
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart …
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here … in your heart.

Heaven isn’t an abstraction; it isn’t a dreamscape cooked up from empty, wishful thinking. It is a place as real as the room or the airplane or the beach or the library where you are right now. It has objects in it. Trees, fields, people, animals—even…actual cities. But the rules of how things work there—the laws of heaven’s physics, if you will—are different from ours. The one rule we need to remember from here, however, is that we end up, in the end, where we belong, and we are led by the amount of love we have in us, for love is the essence of heaven.
