Heaven is made of mini moments

My title today is inspired by Lucy’s post concerning the delights of almond croissants. But regular readers will have gathered by now something about my sentiments regarding time, eternity, joy and heaven. I don’t like to be too dogmatic about it; something of the writer’s ‘show, don’t tell’ ethic, perhaps? But almond croissants, along with spring flowers, slices of carrot, etc etc all make the point that heaven is not some distant concept above the bright blue sky; nor is it something we only know once we’re dead!
Heaven is all around us if only we have the eyes to see it. Stop dwelling on yesterday or worrying about tomorrow and live fully in the present moment. Mystics and spiritual seekers of many traditions have much the same to say. Past and future exist only in our minds. NOW is the only moment in time we can actually interact with; so make the most of it.
