Heaven

We can’t know very much about heaven while we’re in this world. It is not because God doesn’t want us to know, but it’s because we’re so restricted by our own limitations here at this time. We can only understand the unknown in the light of the known. And the light of the known in this case is so weak and so pitiable and so inhibited. There’s no way by which we, in our present state, can begin to grasp the glorious expansiveness of infinity. We can only learn a new thing by connecting it to something we already know. So when we talk about the world beyond this one, we have a square peg, round hole type of problem.
