Paradise ro me would be just existing as part of a universal consciousness.....being a non physical observer of the natural beauty of the universe....

i like thinking about this.


there are many very friendly people in heaven and they do lots of things together. they listen to music dance and sometimes build things and place itself looks very beautiful too. everything feels nice and weather is always good and there are lots of flowers.

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library

--Jorge Luis Borges

With no gods, no religions, no worship.

I think there's a bit of Paradise in some of the places I walk, along rural paths and tracks in rural Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset. On balance though, Paradise has fallen out of reach. Perhaps we can recreate it, if we survive the next 1,000 years.

Library


They've got all that on wikipedia as well , perhaps such a well of information may provide the keys to heaven as it were

So far ,some form of natural beauty has linked all return posts by being a common denominator .

Got all what? An encyclopedia is but a small part of a library. It's not even an index to what a library offers.

Demonstrably not true.

Paradise, for me, would be where all the senses are combined with perfection-soothing the soul.

Something that allows frailty and aging. Something that allows entropy and decay. A place that has both risks and rewards. Decisions that have consequences. A realm where you are not exactly sure why you are there and unsure of where you came from. A mystery. An enigma. A creation filled with people who are not like myself, that offer new, original and unique thoughts and ideas.

A place that once the dream ends, the eternal soul is finally visible and everything makes sense. The terrible thought of actually appreciating the simulation comes to pass as you realize you are standing, applauding at the conclusion of the show.

Paradise. Here. Now. This reality where every second is a priceless gift.

Ooh! Your right I just looked up some images of New Zealand and it truly fits the description of Paradise.
The lush green grass with mountains behind still waters is a sight to behold.
Most of it looks pretty difficult or impossible to navigate though!

Paradise is the absence of the separate self.


The story of Adam and Eve is an allegory describing the loss of “paradise” through the arising of self-knowing. So, it seems, there is wholeness (paradise) and within that boundless, free-floating, causeless energy, something appears which experiences itself as being separate from that wholeness (paradise).

My Paradise is here on Earth Deep Within the Mandelbrot Set , it is Gods way of Saying " Hello , What Took You So Long to get Here ? "

Maybe You See Him too ?

Like many things English corrupts... So too the word paradise. A woman, after her groom to be has been tried and found worthy, discovers one more ultimate test. She will on the honeymoon expose her busom. If he looks at them he fails. Hence nothing more than a dog. However when she reveals them... She utters "Para Deux"... To which end, if he's not a horny turd gazing at boobs... He utters the magic words: "In Quod Confido". Translation: in whom I trust.
Then all is well. She wears her hair up at the moment. Which indicates "Higher Up". One more test. If God you trust, her hair comes down. Then you can both defile yourselves.

Please God... And The Woman He So Cleverly Devised For All Your Efforts. She Is Paradise. But ....
Para Deux means in English "For God!"

Or just buy one on the internet for a couple hundred.
