In the forest, in a secluded cottage all by myself. In order to learn, grow, and connect to nature and the Divine.
Somewhere in a warm, sunny climate, overlooking the ocean. Where I can reach people and civilization but they don't intrude on my little sanctuary. And room for a garden, and a dog - and my husband, of course.
In a large research library in a seaport. Intellectual stimulation to feed my insatiable curiosity combined with the sounds and smells of the sea to feed my soul is my idea of heaven! ;D
Heaven is where I hope to spend my life.
To me Heaven is a place where God dwells. On the other hand, in the other place or dimension there is the absence of God.
I see God as the mother ship. Before we come to Earth, we are with God, all enfolded, nurtured, protected. Also, we are connected to each other and Him. We are safe and at peace. For us to realize the magnitude and depth and magnificence of God's love, we must go to a physical place to grow, evolve, and test the power of that love. Once we have a deep realization of that love, and are able to follow God's will through faith, strength, and fortitude, we are prepared to return to the mother ship: the spiritual world.
Once there, armed with knowledge, understanding, unconditional love, we can grow further in God's loving light.
I envision Heaven as a place of loving spirits playing, dancing, singing, creating, communing, and experiencing the peace and joy that "passeth all understanding."
Perhaps what I've said will make more sense if I put it in a human context. So here goes. A good mother knows that she cannot hold her child to her bosom forever, nor should she. If she did, the child's growth would be emotionally, physically, and spiritually stunted. In other words, the child needs to venture out into the world to test all that good parents impart to a child.
Further, a mother knows that it would not be a healthy thing for the child to remain clasped to her bosom forever. The child needs to evolve, find her own path, and grow into a strong, loving, disciplined adult to live fruitfully in the physical world.
When the child is grown, she may return to her parents and further realize the wisdom and life tools that they have given to her. And her parents are able to dwell in the loving light of their child's appreciation, and their relationship as mature beings is able to deepen and bear marvelous fruit.
I believe that God wants that same relationship with us in the spiritual realm.
i would like to spend my life time in a private island near Andaman; that place is really sexy.!!!

One of the many stumbling blocks non-believers face in the path of christian doctrine is accepting the notion of a loving God, for how could such a God allow such terrible suffering down here on Earth? This is commonly known as the problem of evil and is usually answered by theologians with the...

Are you having a loving relationship with your parents?Do they hug you? Do you feel close to them or do you feel misunderstood? Is it a relationship based on distance, not saying what you really want to say? Or are you very lucky for the bond you have with them?
