Ecclesiastes 3:21. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
Peter 2:4. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.
Is Heaven above and Hell below?
Some verses of the Bible seem to say so. In Jainism, there are many different realms of Hell.
But is Heaven above? And Hell below?
Literally, many of us have been brought up to believe this and while we may not entirely believe this as adults, it has become part of our programing.
When we are young, we remember what we learn. Like our A,B,C's, we have been programmed to believe that Heaven is above and Hell is below.
While I generally was brought up not believing in Heaven and Hell per say being brought up as a Jain which believes in reincarnation. I was however been brought up to believe Nirvana or Moksha is above and if we are not good, we are reborn.
Because of this above and below programming, we have lost our connection to our Mother, Mother Earth basically.
What is above? It is sky, Father Sky. Whether you are in north or south, east or west, equator or somewhere else, if you look above, you will see Father Sky, the Universe and where the Divine resides.
But what is below? If below is Hell, then Hell is earth.
And we all know Earth is not hell. But we have been programmed that Hell is below us. And thus we have lost our connection with Mother Earth.
Because of this lost of connection, we have lost a lot of gifts that have been intended for us.
We have to be connected to what is below us again, we have to be connected back to Mother Earth and also strengthen our connection with the Universe above us.
These alignment of above and below will align us to God and Mother Earth.
In thousands of years of misalignment with earth, we have lost the ability to listen to it, listen to the things on it and to love it. As such, we have been destroying it. We have been killing our Mother slowly, and literally making it the Hell we know about.
Our ancestors thousands of years ago were connected to Mother Earth and Father Sky together. They remained aligned and they could communicate to the angels and guardians above as well as communicate with the animals and plants and other beings that were all part of the Earth.
All we have done is slowly destroy it, through killing, through destroying and through our arrogance.
There is not Hell below us, we are creating the Hell ourselves.
Let's treat Our Mother here on Earth as well as we respect Our Father in Heaven, Sky, Universe.
It is never too late and you alone can make a difference. Just listen to earth, connect to the earth, listen to the trees and the leaves, listen to the fishes and the animals, listen to the grass and the weeds.
Connect back, use your divine soul's ability and connect back to both Mother and Father. We all have the same Mother and same Father. So, my brothers and sisters, let us cherish and connect back with both Mother and Father, seek their forgiveness, be thankful for all they have provided to us and give them love, infinite love.
Take care and be well.
