What is your idea of heaven?

    This question can be answered in the broadest sense possible, everything from the religious aspect right down to your own personal view of what is heavenly.

      Hmm, a fun question. Heaven to me would be a peaceful meadow surrounded by tall trees. I'd sit on a fluffy blanket with some of my favorite food and drinks. It would always be just about sunset and I'd have nothing but time to relax, read, eat, drink, and observe nature.

      I can think of other heavenly things but that's what came into my head first.

      Heaven or hell is something created by us. You can work hard, love your family and help others and see heaven right before your eyes. Or you can be selfish, mean and cunning and create a hell out of your life. It is all in your hands.

        Mara is the demon of desire and we desire to see what we think reality is. It is but a dream within the dream of self and "I"

    A library of every book ever written and the time to read them all.

    A collection of every musical instrument ever created and the ability to play them all.

    That feeling of being in love with every fiber of your being.

    A place, or rather a state of mind, without stress or anxiety, and where everyone is contented with themselves.

      True, our ideas of heaven do tend to resemble the best Earth has to offer.  Paradise usually has trees, flowers and birdsong.  Much of that heaven though is now being turned into hell, as man destroys that which he finds most beautiful.

    A more peaceful bountiful earth.

    Heaven is where you want it to be and how you want it to be.

      I remember hedgehog flavoured crisps in the '80s, and they were disgusting.

    It's whatever it is. Or is not....

    If it exists, I'm pretty sure we'v got the wrong idea. If it doesn't, then any idea is wrong....
