Jeroen Jeroen woke up with this one idea for a cartón. He wanted to draw something completely different: something much more simple and basic, to put all the focus on the message itself.
He thought it would be just one-off. It wasn’t. He thought up another one, and another, and another...
Jeroen & Monica “Once you’ve had a taste of heaven, everything else in life becomes tasteless. Once you’ve had a taste of heaven, everything else in life becomes even more tasteful.”
Taste of Heaven: An Awakening to Divine Love is the chronicle of a married woman’s journey into spirituality, beginning after the birth of her second child. Having searched her entire life for truth, love, and God, she finds them all at once when she experiences a glimpse of Lord Shiva in her husband on Shivratri, the day of special worship of Lord Shiva.
Having witnessed that God lives in her husband and learning that He also lives in all others, including herself, she can feel the pain of others as her own and looks at another as her own self, an expression of divinity disguised in a material form.
Understanding that she was asleep all her life until that moment, she has been awakened to divine love, a type of love she could never have imagined or dreamt of. This love has made her whole and complete, transforming her former childhood fear of God into love―divine love.
Now feeling surrounded by the love of God and experiencing it in every moment of her day-to-day life, she realizes that God is everywhere. There is no longer anywhere to go or anything to do to be closer to God. She no longer rushes to temples, churches, or mosques for what seemed like an endless search for God. She learns that all places are holy, so she also no longer feels the need to go on sacred pilgrimages. She discovers the joy and bliss in this newly found simplicity of her life, which is the foundation for her spirituality, the new spiritual path she has chosen to follow. She truly embraces the meaning behind the words “the whole world is God’s cathedral.”
