Here's what heaven would be like to me:
First of all, there has to be the whole 'love one another, togetherness, unity, etc.' of all beings. Once that's in place, as unimaginably
beautiful as that would be, I would tend to get a little bored, since my mind never shuts off. So, what to do in heaven? The best analogy I can come
up with is a sand castle. Let's say you and a group of friends start building an elaborate sand castle, covered over with something to prevent
wind/rain from destroying it... you have the best time while doing it, employing creativity, good labor, and of course the company of your friends.
So, after many hours, eventually you all finish the sand castle. You all take a step back, and enjoy what you've accomplished, admiring the results
of your hard work and creativity. So, what happens next? After a week or so of admiring what you've all done, you remove the covering, and let the
rain completely destroy the castle. But why destroy what you all worked so hard to build? So you can re-experience the joy of being creative and
productive with your friends, which was really the point, to me.
Of course, this is just an analogy, and I would envision things of a similar concept, on a much greater scale. Also, to me, happiness in heaven would
have a lot to do with memory. What happens, when you're enjoying eternity, after you've read your favorite stories for the 1,000th time? What
happens when you know all there is to know? What happens when everything's been done to death? You go get your memory erased! Not everything
obviously, but I think it would be great to re-experience your favorite songs for the first time, read a favorite story for the first time, etc. I
know some will say that's the point of living out our lives here on earth, but I'd still like to remain in heaven, and know who I was and all that.
If reincarnation is true, get me off of this ride, I'm officially done with things in this realm.
To sum it up, I guess the point of my heaven would be all about the joy of creation/destruction, friendship, and discovery.
