The Heavenly Vision

I was not disobedient unto the Heavenly Vision.—Acts 26:19 There are few words that so thrill one with a sense of new and diviner possibilities, that are so deeply freighted with the positiveness of the higher life, as these. They comprehend all the greatness which results from the entire spiritualization…

Heaven in the Heart

The toil of life ceases when the heart is pure. When the mind is harmonized with the Divine Law the wheel of drudgery ceases to turn, and all work is transmuted into joyful activity. The pure-hearted are as the lilies of the field, which toil not, yet are fed and…

What Heaven is Like

What Heaven is like need not be described as a place, but wherever goodness is transformed to actual deed, (not in attending conventional meetings, or by being what is termed a religious person,) and wherever the execution of a noble thought takes place for another mortal's welfare, that is the…

We dream of Heav'n, and lo beneath the skies,Close-covering in loveliness the way,We come and go adreaming day by day,The mystery of Heav’n serenely liesUnfolded at the curtain of our eyes, Through circling centuries. Indeed we mayDiscover many things for which we prayFlung all around. Ideals immortalizeIn those beloved features…
