Have you ever noticed that church steeples, temples, and pagodas all point up?
I suppose this has something to do with heaven being the sky.
This tiered worldview is now obsolete.
But we still have the structures pointing up.
Eastern pagodas have successive roofs representing higher and higher states of consciousness.
Western churches have towering steeples reaching for the heavens.
But to go up is to miss the point.
God dwells in the heart.
So to reach the divine we must go deeper within.
In the end life is not so much about the state of our minds as the condition of our hearts.
