Where paradise lies has been questioned throughout history. Paradise as our age of innocence is real, but it is invisible, and it cannot be entered with a conscious mind. Paradise, like life itself, is in the midst of everything. It is located in the frame of your oblivious mind, in your childhood years, before you gain consciousness. Paradise exists without time and space, without obligations or responsibility.
It is in the Garden of Eden, where the human entity starts to evolve into the person you eventually become. While you are in the paradise of your childhood, you have no idea what you are or where you are.
You are an observer, testing your perceptions in this invisible Garden until the time comes when you become consistent with the word I as your Self. Every human being has been in the Garden of Eden, and every human being has had to leave it.
