Title: Heaven

Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, he answered them, The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed; [ 21 ] nor will they say, `Lo, here it is!' or `There!' for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you. . . . the kingdom of God is within you.

Some of here have experienced the kingdom of heaven during meditation or as a result of devotion nature meditation and God's grace.

Despite our shortcomings, Our Indulgences...
Despite our Impatience with each other, or ignorance
There is a bond growing stronger and stronger. In the passing moments when we recognize the love that exudes from another, there is an opportunity to enter Heaven. Sometimes these moments are realized in ones Suffering, in our quieter moments or in the pain we feel when looking into our Beloved's eye's. Recognize the Love in each and every one of us. Look for their love and remember it above all else. Make an effort to disarm your grievances. See the aspects of God in each Being. See it in your Mother, your Father... Neighbor. In Friends, both present and gone. Your Wife, Husband or Children. Hold on to their Love... Let the shortcomings fall away. .. because when you Love the other, to Honor the God in Them, You are placed in Heaven on Earth. There is no greater joy.

Yea it takes quite a bit of courage to admit our own grievances and not blame others for them when they may in fact be a result of our own mental obstinacy and mindsets.  It also takes quite a lot of courage to stand up for true spiritual values when we recognize them and that they have been neglected.

Your statement leaves quite a long pause for reflection and a need for guidance on such matters! How can we make sure our actions are the result of wisdom and not of grievances?

I have had such moments of heaven in the midst of us. Yet they are fleeting. But we never forget such moments of love and we are cultivating and weeding our garden of love to manifest again.
