That's an interesting concept, and it sort of got me to thinking...
We are born with this amazing array of senses. The ability to see, to touch to feel, to taste, to hear etc.
And we are born into this amazing world, full of warm sunsets, breathtaking landscapes, succulent food and heart rending music, the ability to enjoy each others touch and so much more.
Why is that?
According to what MOST Christians believe, you need to live a frugal life of chaste obedience- and then you get into the REAL heaven; the place to finally start living.
But what if all those long dead visionaries got it wrong?
What if God put us on this planet with all these wondrous things to see and hear and feel and do, and gave us the ability to experience them. And then gave us free will to enjoy it... or not enjoy it.
And that maybe finding heaven wasn't all about loving thy neighbour and never having sex before marriage. But, in using our mind- a true miracle in itself- to find heaven ourselves.
And it has been here all along.
And the fact that those that do such horrific negative things tend to attract negativity to themselves and will often describe their life as "hell" seems to give the idea some merit.
Maybe heaven and hell DO actually exist. And our actions on this plane will make us enter heaven or hell, WHILE we are alive. Not once we die. Because it just seems sort of too late once we are in the ground.
And why grow such a lovely garden for us to play in and wire in such an amazing capacity to enjoy that garden- when its considered a sin to actually do most of the things that are so enjoyable when we are here?
This is something I only just came up with and Im sure it has its flaws. But as a germ of an idea, I like it.
Its also a prime example of why I joined this site. To communicate with like minded individuals and come up with some kind of answer to why I am here.
