Where Is Heaven?

Where Is Heaven?

Many people think about death and have questions about it but there is no one who knows the answers to their questions. Each religion talks of a world beyond this world: in Buddhism, it is said the world of paradise, where Buddha resides, exists. In Christianity, it is said that heaven exists. However, no one knows which place is true.

In any case, heaven is a world that exists and hell is a world that does not exist. Man is born into the world with a limited amount of time. During his time in the world, he stands at a crossroads of living or dying. However, no one in the world truly realizes this. No one knows whether he will die or live, because man does not have true knowledge that comes from wisdom.

There have been billions of people on Earth who lived seventy to eighty years and passed away. While many people believe they moved on to another place, the only thing that is certain is that they have disappeared from this world.

The principle of the world is that you exist because the ground exists; the ground exists because the Earth or the foundation exists; the Earth, sun, moon and stars in the sky exist because the empty Universe exists. This is the origin or the original foundation. This original foundation is the master of the Universe and only this original foundation is Truth.

For us, people, our lives in this world are the same as dreaming a mere dream. From the perspective of the everlasting existence, Truth, which has existed since the beginning, we are dreaming a dream that lasts only for a split-second.

The original foundation or the place beyond material existence is Truth, the master of the Universe and the Creator. This existence is a non-material, immortal and living existence; it is the master of the world; it is the Jung and Shin of the Universe that is the master of the world; the Universe’s Soul and Spirit. The only eternal existence in the Universe is this existence. For man to live forever he must be reborn with the Soul and Spirit, or the body and mind, of this existence. Otherwise, there is no such thing as eternity in the world.

The human mind is the mind of sin and karma; a false mind world which has copied what belongs to the real world. What is in the world is true but man lives not in the world but inside his own mind which is like a video. This world is hell; an illusionary world. It is false and it does not exist in the real world. From the viewpoint of the real world, it does not exist. In other words, the illusionary world of the video does not exist in the world.

Since man does not live in the world and instead lives in his mind – a copy of the world that overlaps with the world – when he dies he simply disappears. However, when he erases his self-made mind world which is false, the original foundation remains.

If we think about it, the original foundation existed before you were born and it exists now. It will still exist even after you die. Unless you swap your mind to this existence of Truth, which is the origin, an eternal land does not exist. Doesn’t the Universe still exist even after both your mind world and yourself disappear? Material matter in the Universe exists because your mind exists; even after all material matter is erased, the sky still exists. When you become this empty sky and you are reborn from this sky, you will never die.

Only this place is the land without death and this land is a world where one lives forever. If man discards his mind world and his self living in it, he will have the mind of the origin and if his mind becomes this mind of the origin, his mind will become the mind of the world. Within this mind of the world, one’s true soul that is the substance of Truth must be reborn. Only then can his body and mind of the true soul live forever in this world even after the body disappears.

It is here that heaven exists. God or Buddha exists in the mind of a person who has become one with the mind of the world, and it is here that heaven also exists. He who has become this mind has the mind of the world. He will live forever in this land, in the world of the Soul and Spirit, where everything in this world is as it is.

Because it is said that we will live with this body in this land, some people and some religions believe that it is the physical body that will live forever. However it is Truth and the principle of nature that man’s physical body cannot live forever. As scientists have proven, even the stars in the sky, including the Earth, have life spans and can only live up to fifteen billion years. It is not the material form that lives, but the original foundation, the Soul and Spirit which is Truth, which will live forever here in this land of Truth. Such a place is heaven. To be reborn and to live in this heaven, one must discard his mind of sins and karma that has turned its back on the world. He must become the mind of the world and within that mind, the world and one’s self must be resurrected as the Soul and Spirit, in order to live in this land which is heaven.

From Despair To Hope

From Despair To Hope

There were people living in the world even a long time ago. The many people who lived in the world throughout the ages have all disappeared, silently and without a trace. While they lived, they were attached to the realities of their daily lives and they suffered because of their minds of possession, but despite all of their agonizing over the meaningless events of life, no trace of them remains. Ultimately, there is no meaning in human life.

The only way for man to live forever and escape from suffering and burden is to die while he is still living. Only then can he find his true self. His true self is God who remains when he is dead.

Even if all people and the world disappear, what remains is the existence without form, taste, scent, sight, hearing and feeling. That is, the existence – for which these minds have completely ceased – remains: the original foundation. If one is reborn from the original foundation, he and the world become eternal and never-dying immortals, and both the world and man live, for they become God that never dies.

Discarding falseness and becoming real is the only path to life. People want to become real but at the same time keep the falseness; there are not many people who know that they can only become real if they throw away what is false. They have such strong attachments to their falseness that they look for Truth within it. They do not know that Truth does not exist within falseness – that is how foolish people are. The right way, or the answer, is to discard falseness so that only Truth remains, and to be reborn as Truth.

The Reason Man Is Born Into This World

The Reason Man Is Born Into This World

An innumerable number of people have come and gone in this world, but no one knows where they came from or where they went. In any case, they have all disappeared from the world. From the Universe’s point of view, man disappears after a fleeting, meaningless life; there is little difference between a mayfly that passes away after a day and man who passes away after seventy to eighty years. Only man dies holding onto all the events and stories from his life. If he looks back on those stories after time has passed, he would realize that it is all meaningless.

When the Creator created man, he was made to resemble him. However, man made his own self-centered world by copying what is in the Creator’s world. He lost his original nature and began to lead a selfish life, but it enabled civilization to progress; man’s greed enabled the population of the world to multiply rapidly and without it, mankind would have died out naturally. The Creator will come to the world to save mankind at a time in the world when it is populated to capacity. Human life, like the life of a mayfly, is meaningless, yet at the same time it is the will of the Creator to “harvest” man when the human population is at its densest – that is, it is the Creator’s will to save people when there are as many people living in the world as possible. Now is the time of that harvest. We should live forever in the land of God by becoming one with the mind of God instead of dying meaninglessly with resentments and regrets. The reason and purpose man is born into the world is to live forever.

To all people, who disappear like smoke, without meaning: Just once, think deeply about yourself so that we may go together to live in the world that is eternally alive. There is no meaning in human life; nothing remains from it and everything from it disappears. Now is the time, now, when God, Buddha, great compassion and love come to the world and take man who would otherwise disappear to the living land of Truth; when man can have the mind of God and be reborn in the mind of God by cleansing his mind; when man can be saved. Is there anything in the world more important than this? This is the reason man comes into the world.
