Jesus says kingdom of God within you-within us-within everyone-within anyone.
How can the Kingdom of heaven be within you? How can the kingdom of heaven be contained inside a body? Jesus meant the Kingdom of heaven, same as kingdom of God. It\’s like an Ocean contained in a drop, which is unthinkable to human thinking.. Some of His statements seem to be conspicuous and human mind cannot understand because we cannot understand what the Spirit is.
Here Jesus points the way to hidden dimensions, not simply the conventional notion of Heaven.
The Spirit is non- mathematical and non-measurable, because of its being non-material. And our minds are used to think only in terms of measurements and calculations. Therefore, to our understanding a kingdom cannot be conceived to be contained within a person.
The Kingdom of heaven is not a country. It is not a physical empire. We call it the Spirit, and the Spirit can be contained everywhere. It does not require space to exist. Therefore, it can be wholly present even in the smallest of atoms. Thus, is the kingdom of heaven within you, the source of reality is inside you. It is your essence.
The Spirit has no past, no present and no future. And this is the Christ-Consciousness.
The kingdom of God cometh not with observation; neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, Lo there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20-21)
