I don’t know exactly what got me thinking about it, but I woke up considering the idea and possible reality of heaven.

To me, heaven boils down to one thing. The most basic, bedrock choice is already made. It’s the choice to live without the artificial separations we have on earth. Economic, religious, idealogical… anything that separates us and allows us to put ourselves above or below or even merely differentiate ourselves from each other.

It seems it’s basic human nature to find the divides. Even when we find our commonalities, it’s part and parcel of finding a difference with another group. I think that heaven is the resolution of that dichotomy. We won’t need to find our individuality by comparison. It will simply be. Once we’re beyond the differences, we can simply enjoy the infinite variety of the universe.

Tell me about it...
