I like the Tibetan Yogi monks way of explaining Heaven and Hell, with a sprinkle of physical science and metaphysical science in the mix.
If I understand correctly, the Tibetan Yogi monks believe that Hell is the physical representation of ones existence in which you experience the
sensations of pain, pleasure, sorrow, joy, hate and love for example.
Why this is Hell is because here, in the physical dimension composed of the chemical elements of nature, you are forced to experience the consequences
of chemical reactions such as if a person hits you in the face, your nervous system picks up the information of that physical reaction and signals to
your brain which translate that physical information to your consciousness which is not physical at all, that you experience the sensation of pain and
thus your brain produces the chemical elements required to communicate to your consciousness that your physical representation of being is being hurt
by a punch to the face.
Now here comes the part I like. In order to evolve your consciousness to the state in which you have reached such an awareness and understanding of
the physical world around you, one must reincarnate in this plane several times in different forms so that your consciousness can gain the experience
required to understand completely that your physical self is not the true manifestation of you. That is your consciousness and it is linked to the
physical dimension for the sole purpose of evolving your being into the state of complete consciousness of the physical so that you may be released
from "Hell" and ascend to a higher state of being in which you no longer have to endure physical sensations because then you are a free spirit. A
consciousness of invisible energy able to traverse the invisible web of supreme consciousness that is the Universe, or existence in itself.
And that my friend is Heaven and in it you are alive and conscious.
It gets even better though. In this physical dimension/Hell, your experience of it relies completely on how your consciousness responds to the
information that your brain in Hell communicates to your being.
The more you understand the science behind the reactions, the less it will effect your state of consciousness.
Of course you have to endure physical sensations such as pain and pleasure but how you interact with the physical world around you is completely up to
you and how much understanding of the physical world you have.
Negative energy flowing from your consciousness will cause the world around you to be interpreted in a negative way, however, if your state of mind is
positive.. Well, I don't have to explain further do I?
Hope this helps. I'm in a bit of a rush here at work but I hope you can make some sense out of it all.
Consciousness is the Universe. You are already in Heaven, but you must experience Hell first in order to be fully aware of the sensations of

Oh and by the way, since you without a doubt is Human which is both the best and worst level of reincarnation ones consciousness can experience
depending on how many of us choose to look at it this way, you have probably been a lower life form before, like a mosquito perhaps and you got
smacked and died minutes after hatching and that was it. Then you become a life form of higher consciousness so being Human is beautiful because now
you've reincarnated so many times that you understand most of the sensations of the physical dimension so, however you choose to apply that knowledge,
know that if you wish you can definitely get the most out of it.
And with that said, we should all acknowledge the nation of Tibet and its cultural heritage as a true wonder of the world and stand up for their
protection as a nation and the survival of their cultural heritage and teachings.
Their culture is dying and with them part of Humanity will too.
