I know what some religions teach about heaven and hell. But everyone has different opinions.

What do you expect heaven to be like?
What will you expect to be doing into heaven?

I will start this thread with my feelings. To understand heaven I have first tried to understand my true self or soul. Many of us see our soul as our heart (feelings), the feelings that arise when we see beauty in art or in the joy at jokes etc. But when we are born, our brain is controlled by DNA to procreate to ensure survival of the fittest, it seeks beauty, strength and power as means to succeed in procreation. And from birth, the environment impacts the development of the pathways in the brain, allowing us to feel joy at positive outcomes and sadness at negative outcomes. So that substance of the brain must die when our body dies.

So I see my true self is something else. Something I have only seen fleeting glimpses whilst meditating. It is the witness that embodies nothing but emptiness. Some religions tell us that we will only be able to witness the Father from accepting the emptiness of the Son. So if GOD is a cosmic brain, perhaps we are just neurons, with no true self identity.

So if I die and attain heaven, I am not expecting my ego-brain to survive the death process. I am expecting that I will be forever be part of GOD. Seeing what GOD see's. Seeing what GOD wants. Seeing what GOD is. With no self identity at all. So it will be the final death of my false self. Being born again for one last time to witness the greater self. Not of myself. But one of everything, that exists.

Some religions (Hinduism, Judaism etc) teach that we have already reached that state if perfection. That souls go through numerous reincarnations (or dreams) until they awaken to their true selfless self. So I am not expecting to awaken, anytime soon.

Sweet dreams, everyone.

Meditate and you'll find it in the here and now. Heaven after death is a concept that causes people to not search for and find it right now.

Well the Bible gives the location in Genesis. It's right here, but we expect ourselves from Paradise with our divided mind.

I believe we live on earth what we create, as well as everywhere else. Upon death in this consciousness, we engage a perspective relevent to our existence which as far as I can define individuation...simply is different musings of the one consciousness.

I cant imagine, the universe supports the waste of energy supporting a "heaven, or hell." what a gigantic waste of resources, not too mention an absurdly infantile concept to be attributed an omnicient being...I mean seriously its laughable to think a being capable of creating literally EVERYTHING, cares to have designated tables in the highschool lunchroom.

Wasnt trying to offend anyone, just my take...Ive been attacked of late for asking questions by folks with different beliefs.

Star dust is the most logical conclusion yes.

But its not beyond science to affirm spirituality. It only requires an open mind. Take for example the case of Shanti Devi. A girl that was investigated by Mohandas Gandhi government because she claimed to know facts about her previous life. Many tried to denounce her but failed to find any holes in her story.

Off cause it be better to have first hand experience. You'd probably look good in hindu garb.

The last photon reflecting from my eye and shooting through the universe for the rest of eternity alone. Or maybe just a nice long sleep.

Yeah, I see you as more of a Sikh kinda guy. Turban, ceremonial dagger, fierce beard. Not too scary, but definitely not effeminate, or gay.

I really do not know what to expect.
I only hope to hear the word "Welcome".

If I would be so lucky.

If the Christians are right, it will be a God-awful totalitarian police state. Not interested.
