What do you need to let go of…so you can truly live?

“As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'”
Jesus gave this instruction to his apostles as he sent them out.
This was the message he told them to deliver as they cured people of afflictions and basically restored them to wholeness.
Note that he didn’t order them to go out to deliver to people a set of rules to follow so that they could be rewarded some day with a trip to heaven.
“The kingdom of heaven” is not only some place we hope to reach one day; it is what Jesus told his followers to help bring about in the here and now.
As St. Catherine of Siena said, It’s heaven all the way to heaven.
When we “die” to our ego’s plans…our true selves begin to rise.
It’s then that we can become instruments of God’s love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and compassion. And that’s when the kingdom of heaven will be at hand!
How will the kingdom of heaven begin to manifest this day…through you?
