To experience heaven on earth one must be aligned with what makes this happen. This is a self created dilemma only because through the Conditioned Mind what makes heaven on earth possible is blocked.
There’s a certain way to live that allows one to experience heaven on earth and one must do the things that puts them in alignment with what will make this happen. If this way isn’t adhered to it will be difficult to experience heaven on earth and be an instrument of love. The doesn’t happen by doing good deeds, it happens by not doing good deeds and being guided by the love that’s in your heart. Doing endless goods deeds will not add one iota of love to the heart, but when things are done strictly of love, it doesn’t matter what’s done, the heart opens and love expands; this is truly heaven on earth being experienced through one’s being. This is not the conventional way of looking at life, but it’s the way I have found that works the best for putting me in alignment with love.
The major dilemma with this is through the Conditioned Mind one has learned to do things that are mostly productive to self. When this is done there’s not much time spent on thinking of others because one is to busy thinking about themselves. Most of one’s life is spent thinking of and finding ways to satisfy self and even if one is on a journey that affords them to help others, there has to be an awareness of the attachment to self so one can go beyond this and heaven on earth can be experienced. There’s a very fine line between the self serving mind and the love (heavenly) serving mind, with practice one will see the differences and stop doing the one that has no benefit. If all one does is think about doing things that are strictly a benefit self, there won’t be any room to think about others and the heart will remain closed. If this self serving mind is the one lived by, one will not be doing the things necessary that puts them in alignment with love and heaven on earth will not be experienced because the door to one’s heart will be closed.
