Welcome to Subscribers All over the World (and confession)

I lost the Heaven News that was all ready to send out. Alas, it’s all gone. One moment it was here, and then it was gone. I don’t know how I did that. Here are some of the countries I remember that new subscribers recently came from. This is about half of the number there actually were. Sorry. Australia Austria Finland France Germany

Italy Mauritius New Zealand Turkey

United Kingdom
Within the U.S., I remember we had quite a few new subscribers from Utah, Nevada, and Massachusetts and also at least one from each of another 37 or so states.   There were some other wonderful things that were lost, web sites that were including Heavenletters for the first time, for instance, and other items of note. All gone. If you will let me know about you again, we’ll get you into the next Heaven News. And I vow to back up everything next time. But there is no lack of news! Back to contents....

Heaven Comics

To get me happy again after the loss of Heaven News, let’s begin with a Heaven Comic by Yaco.

You can find more Heaven comics on the Heaven Community Forum, which is just being moved to the web site. The new URL for the forum will be announced shortly. Back to contents....

Congratulations to Heaven’s Publisher in Greece!

The Grant Priority of Greece has conferred on Panos Axiomakaros and his wife, Katia, the Dignity of Knights of the Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani. Beloved Panos is a well-known and well-respected publisher and panelist on National TV in Greece.
 Congratulations, Panos and Katia. Back to contents....

Extra Spam Protection

The good news is that Heaven will receive only 1% of the spam that has been getting through. Hurray! The bad news is that about 1% of legitimate emails will also be spammed, and I will never see them. This is another good reason to recommend that you post on the Heaven Forum and the Heaven blog www.godwriting.org. Your posts will appear and will not ever be lost. And I am happy for your beautiful emails to be available to all, and I will post responses as well as often as I possibly can. Back to contents....

New Heavenletter Website on Its Way!

An open letter from Santhan, Heaven’s Volunteer Creative Director:
Dear Heavenletter Friends, For quite some time now we have been involved in getting the pieces together into a communication tool/website. What we have, may go through many changes as we progress, which is part of the fun. Yet, even with whatever challenges that may pop up, I am as confident that the solutions we have will work, as I am confident in God, myself and you. We have been brought together to be a part of something awesome! Its awesomeness is about to reach much much further. About the archives...
It will be run on a searchable database. Heavenreaders will be able to search for Heavenletters by keywords. Each Heavenletter will have its usual title, number and published date. The system prevents duplicate titles. It will allow the person submitting the Heavenletter into the database to see if a similar title exists.
It also has a tagging system. Tagging allows us to associate tags (keywords/themes/topics) to a Heavenletter. This is a flexible, dynamic approach to associating Heavenletters with ideas. For example, let’s say I would like to read a Heavenletter on Friendship. I would be able to see a list of tags and select the tags, Friends or Friendship, which would then display all Heavenletters tagged with these tags. The tags will dynamically accumulate in the database and associate with the Heavenletters. There will be no risk of repeating the tag as a tag like Friendship can appear only once, but be associated with numerous Heavenletters. In the same way one Heavenletter can be associated to numerous tags. The tags can be based on actual words in the Heavenletter or on the theme of the Heavenletter or even a possible idea that the Heavenletter conveys. Volunteers would all be able to browse through the Heavenletters and add more tags or edit the tags if we saw a reason for it. The tagging system is a convenience for the reader as well as a tool that will be used in increasing the reach of Heavenletters. Annette,
Heaven’s archivist, will be happy to know that the new web site will provide you the Heavenletters in whatever format you wish to display them on the archive website. The archive website will have all the Heavenletters (questions to God also if you like) and an About Page. I can also provide you with a standards compliant accessible template to present the site with. The most important part here is that the work will not have to be repeated. We will work together in one central location that branches out...into different expressions if you like :) Khanyi will also gladly host the site, as it will require a few advanced server features that your host may not have. About quotes, haikus and poems...
All quotations, haikus and poems (qhp's) will be associated with the original Heavenletter/s. This means that a person submitting qhp's, will have to select the Heavenletter/s from which the qhp is created from. I always wondered where those beautiful quotes on the Heavenletters home page came from! Why is there no link to the Heavenletter from which it was taken? Well, with the new site this function is taken care of. This way the qhp will be an introduction to the Heavenletter it comes from. We have a feature to select a set of qhps that will appear on the home page and on various other parts of the site. Translations...
Translators can login and click on whatever content type (Heavenletters, pages, qhps, news items) and translate them from a drop down list of languages. Each language has its own home page eg. www.es.heavenletters.org for Spanish which automatically displays the Spanish language content. We can launch the other language home pages with just a list of Heavenletters that have been translate, but it feels much better to have translated the About Page, the faqs and the short story of Heavenletters before we launch a new language home page. As the site grows, we will welcome many more wonderful volunteers to assist in all areas.
There are too many other features of the site to mention in this already lengthy email. I have to leave to Uruguay within the next few days so I see the beta launch of the site happening only towards the end of next week. The forum has been moved over to the new site which will allow us to change things and test for bugs based on forum-users’ feedback. We are all integral parts of this project and I am super duper grateful and happy to be a part of this with you. Santhan


We are busy fixing up the design and testing on different web browsers and monitor sizes etc. An administrators’ interface will be up shortly that will allow us to collectively start submitting the Heavenletters to the database. The great team I work with here in Argentina will also help, and I am sure that there are more volunteers like Paula, Maria, Engin, Adrachin, Veronika, Margarita, Kirt and Annette who will help with this. We will have all of Heavenletters into the database in less than a week.
  I am very much drawn towards making this pink rose a more regular (and permanent) part of Heaven. (Godwriting too!). We have used it in various design elements of the new web site. The rose represents the blossoming Heart centre...which is very much the essence of Heavenletters and Godwriting.

Namaste, Santhan
May every website have the good fortune to have a magical angel team such as Heaven has. I am in awe and so very grateful to God for all of you. With blessings and love,
Gloria Back to contents....

God Quote:

“You are a flower that blossoms. And when you become seed again, you are still the flower. Inside you are the flower. The flowerness of you does not change. It is eternal. Eternity is all that there is, beloveds. Consciousness, Oneness, Eternity, Infinity, God are names for the same Reality of Reality. Welcome.”
