No... this is not a religious discussion. What I mean is, what makes you feel you're in heaven? For me, it's marshmallows... I adore marshmallow, not toasted, just as they come, like white and pink pieces of fluffy cloud, caught in a plastic bag. Yummy! I like them in my hot chocolate too, and often buy the small ones to decorate cakes with. They sure make me feel like I'm in Heaven. I have to say that there are a few other heavenly things for me too, like Cadbury's Chocolate, an Aromatherapeutic Bath, Candy Floss, Being in Love, and Nature itself. So what does Heaven mean to you? What makes you feel as though you're in Heaven? What are the most Heavenly moments you could enjoy?

I have had many whims and fancies and fantasies over the years and have always been under the impression that it would be like heaven when it would come true, but many times, even after they did come true, the 'heaven-like feeling' just kept moving away like the horizon that keeps getting farther as we approach it. Looking back, I see several such instances. I had thought that I would be fabulously happy if I got this thing or the other in my life, but once that actually materialized, it was something else that I had to have, along with 'this'. The more I got, the more I had to have. Lord Buddha realized that desires were the cause of pain and went about preaching the path to eternal happiness and peace, but his teachings seem lost upon the common people, people like me. Your post seems to be in lighter vein, but I was in a rather introspective mood, so this rather morose sounding reply. Sorry! Peace and God bless, CV.

Yes, it was in a much lighter vein; more what do you like doing most that makes you feel as though you're in heaven, and more in the present time, but not to worry Vanilla. Your response was a great one, as usual. +

Yes, that's a wonderful thing to do. I sometimes stand on the South Downs and look out over the Weald, to the North Downs, with just the wind whistling past your ears, and so much peace and tranquility around you.

Cauliflower cheese without a doubt is the most heavenly food you could have in my mind - especially if it's done properly. Although strawberries and clotted cream or a 'cream tea' comes a close second but doesn't just hit the spot like cauliflower cheese! Strange... I'm hungry now - brightest blessings!

Heaven to me is where I wanna be...I want to walk in a gold path of heaven with my loved ones being there with me, enjoying each other's company and just live happy, ever after.

You don't think you're walking that golden path every day, in the golden rays of the sun? Think about it... you've found your heaven on earth. You sound quite content to me, anyway. :-) Brightest Blessings.

Being onstage singing. Yeah, it's just karaoke right now, but one day I will be professional! Also sitting down with a nice plate of sushi. I really enjoy drinking Schnapps too. For some reason it gives me that euphoric feeling. Oh and being at 500 posts!!! (This is #500!!!)

Seeing my kids with a care free smile on their face, watching my cat play, enjoying the wind blowing through my hair and the sand between my toes.

Awwwwwwww, yes... that sounds nice too. I love the sea breeze blowing through my hair and the sand between my toes. As for kids... I love them all, and seeing a smile on their faces is a bonus.

Have eaten marshmallows in the past and can only say that i am not to keen on them but a nice big bar of Cadburys fruit and nut chocolate of a bag or raisins now that is my kind of not allowed heaven. Have a nice day from Deeeky.

So, you could say you're a Cadbury's fruit and nut case, huh? he he he I like wholenut better, because the raisins in the fruit and nut go a bit too chewy for my liking. I guess from that, you could draw that I'm a Cadbury's nut!!! lol Brightest Blessings my dear friend.

Heaven for me is to be in my girlfriends arms and kising her... I love her a lot... it may also be having her head on my lap and stroking her beautifull hair while she rests. I love her a lot. So does she, so I can't imagine living my life without her. Right now because of her studies we aren't able to meet for months but still when she comes back I always make it to her and caress her and love her for what she is. I always like to make her feel as if she is special, actually she is quite special for me. I like to make her feel that no matter what happens I will stay with her in all circumstances. I think its getting a bit too emotional... anyways Take Care May GOD Bless YOU

I like marshmallow too...fluffy, mmmm, yummmy,mmmm, lovely. I also love my room with the royal purple and burgundy decor and my heated water bed. Best of all, after dinner when I'm sitting down to watch telly, I've just eaten my meal, have a nice coffee, the heater is on and I can sit back and relax with my dog and my cat curled up together at my feet. That does it for me.
