Finding Heaven Here

Finding Heaven Here


CATEGORIZED IN

Have you heard the rumor? Jesus started it when he said, The father’s kingdom is spread out upon the earth and people do not see it. Joseph Campbell, the renowned scholar of religion and mythology, put it this way, This is it. This is Eden! Most recently, bestselling Power of Now mystic, Eckhart Tolle, hinted at the rumor’s spiritual meaning, saying: A new heaven is the emergence of a transformed state of human consciousness.

It’s here now and waiting for you! Finding Heaven Here explores the universal mystical awareness of Heaven on Earth. With a lively blend of first-hand descriptions, workshop-tested experiential exercises, a simple map of the religious psyche, and the remarkable testimony of mystics from across traditions, Dr. Robinson invites the reader on an astonishing journey from the problem-ridden World of Man to the actual paradise of Heaven on Earth all around us.

• Mathew Fox: A welcome contribution to the radical but universal spiritual teaching that the sacred marriage of heaven and earth is possible.
• Andrew Harvey: Finding out that this world is Heaven is crucial for human survival. John Robinson’s passionate and finely researched book will inspire seekers to open their enlightened eyes and see the world as it is.
• John Mabry: Finding Heaven Here is a crash-course in spiritual transformation. Required reading for anyone on a serious spiritual path.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

A remarkable and practical book that has the capacity to transform teh reader's perception and understanding. ....This is not just a lecture on heaven, but an invitation to readers to open the door for themselves. ~ David Lorimer, Network Review

John incorporates many very practical exercises to enable the reader to find their way forward, opening their hearts and minds, moving beyond being trapped by their own thoughts. A book to be read by all those seeking a spiritual path forward into this New Age. ~ Tony Neate, Buttercup Newsletter

Finding Heaven Here is a timely book that reminds us that no matter what is happening in our life, we can find peace and joy. I very much enjoyed Finding Heaven Here. I began reading with a very dark feeling hanging over me but now understand where that heaviness comes from. Moreover, I was able to easily adapt the exercises provided to match my interpretation of the divine. ~ Dr Tami Brady, TCM Reviews

John Robinson's passionate and finely researched book will inspire seekers to open their enlightened eyes and see the world as it is, and start working in Sacred Activism to preserve it. ~ Andrew Harvey, Powell's Books

This book is a crash-course in spiritual transformation. In clear, compassionate terms, Dr. Robinson reveals the "secret" at the heart of all mystical traditions, and provides simple, practical exercises to bring it home to each and every reader. Required reading for anyone on a serious spiritual path. A wonderfully focused book and a welcome contribution to the radical but universal spiritual teaching that the sacred marriage of heaven and earth is possible. Welcome too are the rich citations from mystics the world over as well as a spiritual practice that assists one to ground and experience this fundamental realization. ~ New Consciousness Review

The book offers the equivalent of a home study course in mysticism. Dr Robinson provides the reader with dozens of spiritual exercises that help to clear away the obstacles that prevent us from experiencing the wonder of life and the presence of the Divine. He answers common questions at the end of the book which help to clarify how we can improve the quality of our life by spending time meditating on the higher realms of consciousness. ~ Wendy Stokes, Eternal Spirit

There is extensive research into mythical and mystical traditions, for which there is an excellent appendix of categorised source material. This I personally found helpful, as I was inspired to explore certain aspects in more depth. This is a workbook, and requires practice and patience to achieve results. However, it is inspiring in that it reminds us that throughout the ages we have been given insights and reminders of our true nature, if only we can get out of our own way. ~ Sandra Marrison, Paradigm Shift Magazine

“Finding out that this world is Heaven is crucial for human survival. Otherwise in the frenzy of dissociation, our shadow games will annihilate the planet. John Robinson’s passionate and finely researched book will inspire seekers to open their enlightened eyes and see the world as it is, and start working in Sacred Activism to preserve it.” ~ Andrew Harvey, Author of Son of Man, The Direct Path, The Essential Mystics

"FINDING HEAVEN HERE is a crash-course in spiritual transformation. In clear, compassionate terms, Dr. Robinson reveals the "secret" at the heart of all mystical traditions, and provides simple, practical exercises to bring it home to each and every reader. Required reading for anyone on a serious spiritual path." ----Rev. John R. Mabry, PhD, ~ John Mabry, Author of The Way of Thomas and Faith Styles

A wonderfully focused book and a welcome contribution to the radical but universal spiritual teaching that the sacred marriage of heaven and earth is possible. Welcome too are the rich citations from mystics the world over as well as a spiritual practice that assists one to ground and experience this fundamental realization. Heaven is earth and earth is heaven in spite of ourselves! ~ Matthew Fox, Author of 26 books on Mysticisim and Creation Spirituality

“The indigenous world embraces what the modern world has not yet grasped; heaven and hell, the extremities of our potential, exist in each moment, in the space between heartbeats, ready to take root in the fertile ground of intention and action. Finding Heaven Here, then, one heartbeat away, is a response to the persistent drum call to cultivate and perpetuate sacred reality, here on earth.” ~ Malidoma Some, Author of \"Of Water and Spirit\", \"Ritual Healing and Community\" and \"Healing Wisdom of Africa\"

"John Robinson's elegant and moving examination of the universal human longing for 'heaven on earth' is a stirring demonstration of one of the most important precepts of interfaith ministry and theology: 'always in addition to, never instead of.' " ~ Jeremy Taylor, author of “Dream Work,” “When People Fly and Water Runs Uphill,” and “The Living Labyrinth”

This book can be of great benefit to people of all traditions as they seek to understand the mystical experience and how to find it within one's ordinary life. A strength of the book is that Dr. Robinson offers practical exercises and ideas which can help the reader realize the Sacred in the present moment. The book has good news: the healthy mystic within you is close to the surface, and with some encouragement and direction can break through into your experience, blessing your entire life. - , ~ Reverend James Robinson, Minister - Rosslyn Hill Unitarian Chapel, London, United Kingdom
