Each of us has our own view of what heaven is. For most, this is related to the hell to be avoided. In an attempt to explain it, religions have created visual images that I don’t want to get into now because you do know them. You just have to look at what your images are.

To begin with, there is a misconception about the difference between heaven and earth. It is believed that one should do everything possible to get to heaven. However, if one looks at the body and its functions, one finds that it is impossible for the body to do this. And therefore not the mind either. Let me explain.

The concept of “sin”

As a human being, one is programmed to think in terms of good and evil. This leads to judgment based on an image. This picture leads to conflicts and wars because the picture is different for each of us. One of those concepts is sin.

What is Sin? What is the basis of it? Doesn’t it start from your own image of how it should be? And how others should conform to your image? What then happens: you lower your consciousness to a level that is limited by your program, but which in fact has no reliable objectifiable data.

The concept of “heaven”

If we omitted all images created by the “I, person,” we could effectively see what is seen in heaven. Everyone has looked at the open sky at one point or another. What stands out? Indeed: space… openness. And what if everything has to come from there? From this what we cannot reach by the mind? What we cannot grasp, catch, control, … the open mind.

Back to the body

The seventh layer of consciousness (cf the Froton Life Tool) reflects this freedom that you feel when observing the stars soberly. We find the activity of the neocortex there on a neurophysiological level.

The neocortex, the evolutionary newest part (neos is new) of the cerebral cortex, is involved in higher functions such as perception and abstract thinking. It also receives the feedback of conscious movement, language and reasoning that allows it to adapt (remodel). The neocortex consists of six different layers between which there are no clear boundaries. The absence of boundaries determines the absence of fragmented perception. This allows it to regulate the ability to put things into perspective. So it is the part of us that is closest to freedom. Given that freedom can be associated with the greatest possible potential of an individual we might ask ourselves whether it would not be the most efficient if we let our lives run from there. If we then look at the way in which the body is regulated, as also by the endocrine (hormonal) system, then we indeed see that – from our nature – we are initially regulated by the celestial spheres. The neocortex allows us to learn, change and remodel so that its evolution (towards higher consciousness) can be experienced through the peripheral nervous system. We call that enjoyment.


If we want to be “in tune” with ourselves and with the universe, then we have to let heaven descend on earth (via the green arrow on the Froton Life Tool) and not work the other way around (see red arrow). So the body is our valuable tool, our temple, for making the higher consciousness manifest on Earth by reflecting freedom into true joy, true love.

Love is the only real power. Everything else is allowing it or working against it.

Combining philosophy with neuroscientific principles and with a Master’s degree at the Brussels Faculty of Medicine, I have developed a vision to enable people to tackle problems while overcoming fear or judgment. I help strip away the excuses and convenient stories we tell ourselves to get through life. Replacing them by guiding to a deeper realistic sense, I bring evolution in the process towards a greater freedom. It’s an ability to show you how harmful it is to accept a particular state of mind as an established fact. My work involves emptying the mind of the obstacles that are getting in the way of fulfilment. How can I (Eddy Van Calster) help you or your company transform?
