Growing up my Mom would say with her thick Brooklyn accent while waving her right hand like a presentation “Armand, you see all of this, this is all an illusion”. She made this statement to help me understand there is more to our existence on earth than we think. “Heaven” is present at the same time we are present on this earthly plane. The illusion is that Heaven and Earth are separate. Heaven comingles and works on helping to guide us through our lives. We talk to “God”, our loved ones and guides to help us through. Side note Heaven is not up, down or sideways, its all around us, we coexist.
