This is a question for everyone regardless of spiritual or religious beliefs. Let’s just say that you have been a very good boy or girl and you have been given a ticket to Heaven. There you have it; a guarantee that you will be moving there at one point. What do you think heaven would be like? What is your idea of Heaven? What do you think you would do all day?

I have no idea what it will be like and I don't stop to think about it much either. When the time comes I might find out. However I hope that whoever is there will wear a smile all day long and that no-one will want to cheat anyone else and have more than the next person. I hope all will share whatever they have and whatever they know and there will be nothing at all that could possibly cause ill-feelings. If it's not like that well... I don'r want to go there I would even give up my ticket to someone else

I am sure that no matter what Heaven is really like it will be a place of peace without egos and a lot of joy, that's the vision I will keep anyway. Thanks for taking the time to respond, appreciate it!

Hi Diana, and no body spam there I guess.lol. But I wonder why none has so far calculated our heaven of their wit. I am not hopeful either.

What a discussion! Great idea there! i would want heaven to be like my home for that is one place with all its shortcomings that I love coming back again and again. You must be frowning. But i have always wondered and tried to figure out the optimum beauty, comfort and bliss that heaven comes with. A complete serenity, full of solace,eternal love and compassion and glitters all over. I just love stars ans glitters and fairies.

For a moment I read the discussion in my mail box as: congratulations: You have won a Best Response! LOL! I have been to heaven last night. It was full with beautiful girls and all were giving me massage with minimal cloth on them. There was a guy who was serving me food on request and one guy was there to give me perfumes and all But again it was only a dream and not reality! I am sure that it was heaven!

Paula: yes, it was heaven my style. Your heaven could be different and yes indeed it was like a BR notification. Since you have started it you don't get a notification for it, isn't it? No need to say sorry because it is okay pal! Mys: Unless I get one girl in my life. I promise that she would be my first and last girl with whom I will marry!

There was once a man who was killed in a head-on collision with a semi-truck. His body was pretty much destroyed. So he went to heaven, And said that there were walls that went infinately left and right, and a pearlesent gate that went infinately up. And so the gates opened, and he was let into heaven. He said he was filled with an elation that was indescribable with "earthly" words. And that there were colors there that didn't exist on earth. And there was no sense of time there, so there was no bordom. And he said that as he was driving down the road, he saw the truck coming toward him, and then saw a bright light. And when the light dimmed, he was standing at the gates of heaven. He was only in heaven for 90 minuets before returning to earth. A couple of years later, he wrote a book called "90 Minutes in Heaven"

Hi, paula27661! I would take this invitation over a million dollars anytime!!! I would love to have won a ticket to heaven! What a smile I would have! I think that heaven would be smiling faces and beautiful places! Everyone would be so nice and calm and they would be compassionate. You can feel the love that they all would have for each other. There will be no sorrows, tears or fears and no unhappiness at all. My idea of heaven would be one that shines and has sun and no darkness. The trees and flowers are blooming. The waters are as clear as ice and cool. Everything is fresh and clean. I would just smile all day and tell others good things about Jesus. I would be happy with love for myself and for others. It will be a wonderful place that I would cherish and desire!

Can you imagine MyLotting from the After life? I wonder if they would have a special section for Heavenly discussions or something like that! Regardless of how you imagine it, Heaven is sure going to be a nice place! Thanks for your response!

That would be totally awesome! I've read the books "Heaven is so Real" by Chu Thomas and from C.S. Lewis' "The Last Battle" from the Chronicles of Narnia as well as "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" and for me they're trying to depict Heaven. They never really described it, but for me heaven is a reflection of the current world but a whole lot better, beyond compare. If I get to go there this minute, I'd look for my bestfriend Jesus! And seek answers to all my questions, thanking Him for everything He has done in my life, and am so grateful to have met Him on Earth and calling me as a child of the promise with Him as my inheritance, and be at His feet in worship of my King all day! I don't really have any idea what it looks like, all I know is that it's immeasurably beautiful!

Well let me see, you know most movies show the "all white" fluffy clouds, etc... I want to think that it would be like that, but that's probably not going to happen. I do think that it will be very peaceful and the best part will be that I can be with my mom who I just lost in October. To be with all those friends and family members that aren't with me anymore will be awesome.

The idea of meeting up with lost loved ones sounds beautiful doesn't it? All white and fluffy would be nice too. I'm sure your mum's spirit is here with you as well. Thanks for responding!

I know I already have that free ticket to heaven, and it is not because I am sin free, but to answer your question I believe what the Bible says and I expect God. That is all I need. Our spirits will be ther and of course there will be things to keep us busy spiritually, as we will returned to perfect bodies then we will have many things we want to do and everythng is a possibility. I could tell you what the Bible tell you about heaven, but there is not room here and you should read about it for yourself. It is awe inspiring

Lol. I don't believe in such thing like heaven. Its only an imagination of human mind. Do you think that we will neither go to heaven or hell if we do what is good or we do what is bad?

I can't answer that. My discussion is not about whether heaven exists or not but an exercise in using your imagination, if you could imagine a heaven what would it be like?

Heaven is the place we can get anything that we want.There are no command from GOD again,because we did his command when we lived before. So there are delicious food and fruit so much. Besides that, it prepares a lot of beautiful angels that we have never seen before.....

Hi Paula, well, I actually do not believe at all that there is any heaven, the men made abode. I have faintly figured out heaven to be a place where things are all good and less population and a lot of apple trees and angel are here and there but things never change as they do here on this earth. If I were to be there I would pray the supreme authority to release me from heaven as soon as possible. I want my earthly life with mylot friends much better. lol.

No one really knows what is heaven like as nobody has gone up there and come back to earth to tell the beauty of heaven. But it will be the final resting place for those who have worked for the good of the world and mankind go There the sun shines. I can visualize that heaven, a place where everyone is splendid and nobody boasts of his exploits. People live in simple gratitude. Everyone is perfectly modest and there is, of course, no struggle. Anyone can enter heaven if they respect the laws of the world. It is a superior world to the one where those go who have merely performed good actions.

Wow what a question...LOL. Well I definitely DON'T visualize heaven as a lofty,billowy, cloudy place with pearly gates.. I kind of see it almost as a "parallel" world to earth, but with some differences. The "otherword" or heaven would have the ideal climate all year long, neither too hot, nor cold. It would have lush green forests and gardens. The spirits/souls of everyone would be there, our ancestors, our families who have passed on. And yes it would be ALL souls, no matter what religion one had (might be a surprise for those who thought only they were going to heaven...LOL)... And of course, there would be one section where one does walk through a gate, and that would be the Rainbow Bridge area where one could visit and play with all ones former furbabies anytime one wanted to. I'm truly hoping that when it is all our time to pass into the next world that our "babies" are there..without them, heaven truly wouldn't be heaven now, would it?
@paula27661 (15900)

I agree. It would be no heaven without our furry babies! The way you describe your vision of Heaven is similar to how it is described in "A Soul's Journey" by Peter Richelieu, it's about a man who is visited by Acharya, an Indian mystic and taken out of the physical world onto the astral planes of the 'after life'; of course this guy got to come back and tell us about it! He described it as a beautiful parallel universe. It's the best vision of Heaven I can think of! I'm going to hold on to that... Thanks Pyewacket!
