After reading your OP it seems you have written it with reincarnation in mind.
i used to think we all were a soul that resides in a human body and subject to karmic laws which would determine whether we would go to heaven or hell
after we die.
But i started see that this is not the case, the karmic wheel turns during our life, every action causes a reaction, that is the essence of karma and
it plays out right here right now during our time on earth.
We can indeed describe life on earth as a living hell since most of the population is concerned with the world around him and tries to alter it or use
it to his benefit.
History is filled with bloodshed, the road to a living hell geplaveid with the best intentions.
But that image of hell is how it is perceived and interpreted, obviously not a funny place to be or go too, so be good, do good.
And while we pretend to do good, live by the socalled word of god in order to go to heaven, we kill, suppress, convict and punish.
Our eyes are aimed at the world, we try to alter it, bring it in accordance with how we think it should be.
And since there are so many people, groups, religions, sects, states, nationalities, races, continents, there are many ideas of how it should be which
are in conflict with one another.
Out of these conflicts violence is born, hence our history is filled with bloodshed.
Every fragment (people/groups ect..) works for it self, there is question of self interest in every fragment.
So also economically we compete, some live in material wealth, many live in poverty.
We have turned living into a endless battle with great suffering.
But that to me is not hell, those who see through this utter meaningless way of living, the rotten society humanity has created, they will eventually
Those who do will notice a first glimpse of what the hell is, a dark hidden icy place full of mirrors.
Mythological; Somewhere deep down that darkness the hall of hell is found, Hell the goddess of the underworld.
Some describe her with a great powerful sword, with that sword the earthly ties are cut through and a process of healing can begin.
The proverbial death is the end of the ego, but not the end of the individual which is indivisible part of humanity, whole and therefore holy.
This is where we for the first time start to realize what it means to be a responsible human being, what love truly is, not aimed at something or
someone and therefore excluding the rest.
