So, I just barely published the first article on what Zion looks like. I want to try to write down what it looks like to me.
As the scriptures have stated, it is a place where there is no poor, no in equality, and everyone is pure in heart. That means rather than being prideful and ego driven, we act with love. Every man esteems his neighbor as himself. (D&C 38:24-25) We see the divinity within each of us. There are no feelings or thoughts of us or anyone being inferior or superior. We reach out to serve others with love,kindness, and compassion. There is no false pretense or ulterior motive. There is complete trust among all people, no reason to doubt or mistrust another person.
Given that there is no poor, there is more than enough for everyone. We all gladly share all that we have, there is no fear of running out (or any fear of anything at all). There is no lack or neediness. All things required are present. There is complete confidence that there is endless supply available to all of us. There is no need to horde or take more than is required, it would be like trying to store up more air than we can breath in a day; what would be the point in that? We recognize that all that we have is a gift from God, he is the provider of all that is good.
The love of God is in the heart and mind of every person. We are truly of one heart and one mind. In 1 Nephi 11:22-23, in a discussion with an angel about the tree of life, Nephi says, “And I answered him, saying; Yea, it is the love of god, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things. And he spake unto me, saying; Yea, and the most joyous to the soul.” And so we are all filled with this love, and our lives are filled with joy beyond description. Jesus Christ is among us, and we live in his presence!
We all live in perfect health. There is no sickness, illness, or disease of any kind.
We are all creators of light and truth. We create what we envision. The elements and intelligences of creation honor our desires, because we are all pure in heart. There is no resistance in the flow in our lives.
I’m sure there is more, feel free to share any thoughts you have on this.
