CNY native David Essel pens ways to experience heaven on earth in new book

Bridge Street

Best selling author and central New York native David Essel believes people are experiencing heaven on earth but could be missing it. In Essel’s new book, “How to experience Heaven on Earth a life-changing story for today. Tomorrow. Forever.” he gives examples of how a person will hit struggles and think, what’s the point of this. Then years later realize there was a purpose for the hard times and everything happens for a reason.

As a counselor, minister and master life coach Essel suggests slowing down to experience heaven on earth. In the book he gives the example of greeting someone you have not seen in a while. You both are smiling and laughing and according to Essel, experiencing heaven on earth. “Its’ the joy, the love,” he said.

Essel is hoping to open minds with his new book and not in an esoteric way.
