I notice that sometimes people misread the articles that I write in this blog. They think that it is a matter of accepting or rejecting what I say. But these words are meant to point to that which you experience even now and might have just overlooked. So I expect the readers of these words to be inner scientists, where their direct experience is the platform for their experiments. So don’t accept or reject these words. Rather verify them by your own experience; then you will know what they mean, not as some theory, but directly as your own experience.
For instance I often say that happiness comes from the place where you actually experience it, not from the things that you see. This does not mean that happiness is hard to experience, or easy to experience, or is steady, or comes and goes. Put all the conclusions that your mind can conjure up aside. No matter what you think caused your happiness, see if you can discover the place where you actually experience it. Hint: it is over here and not over there. Then you will be in a position to see if your happiness is really connected to the things that you get, the experiences that you have, or the goals that you achieve.

Once you get a feel for this type of experimentation you can take it one step further: what about when you don’t get what you want, or lose the things that were supposed to make you happy? While in the midst of sorrow, and suffering did the happiness or sense of peace really go away? Is the happiness that I point to really the opposite of sorrow? Or is it like the depths of the ocean, unaffected by the waves above? If when feeling suffering you wonder, “Where did my happiness go,” take a look and see if you can find that which is closer than the sorrow that you feel.
If you poke around a little and find the place that these words point to, you will know what Christ meant when he said, “The kingdom of heaven is within you.” These words will not just be a saying is some manuscript that you read because you're supposed to. Rather they will be the words of a living master pointing to you own experience.
The kingdom of heaven is at hand
Using experience as your guide, you will surely find the meaning of these words. The results of your experiments will be so satisfying that you will never revert to another method, as you attempt to understand philosophy and spirituality. And you will see that the kingdom of heaven is indeed at hand.
