Is Heaven Really All Love And Light?

Is heaven really all love and light? Does it have “darkness” within it? Is it really the perfect spot after death?

I really want something to look forward to when I die. I definitely don’t want to feel like I have to worry about something, I believe heaven should be a good RESTING place, not a place that you have to worry about things. But I will accept heaven as is for what it really is, whichever way it may be.

  1. Hi Micle,

    I hope there’s a party when I get HOME. I think I’ll deserve one by then. As to ‘resting’.. yes, you can rest for as long as you want to, but after that, why not have some fun.

    Heaven is EVERYTHING, just like God (by whatever name) is EVERYTHING. Heaven is also balance, which is both light and darkness, but no one needs to fear death, because hell is a home for demons, not humans, in any state of mind, or nasty nature. We are all learning life lessons, and karma really is enough for the punishment we bring upon ourselves.

  2. I wish there was a like button on here.
    Just about everything Ama says, I agree with. That is a lot like I feel. The only difference, I’m not really sure it would be Heaven as the way the Bible tells us. I think there is a hereafter and hopefully we see all our loved ones again, but I’m still wondering about that too!

  3. I wish there was a like button here too, Nancy … you can like the message on facebook, I think. I send them over to the paranormalqa site over there, when I remember.

    Heaven is definitely not all clouds, angels with harps .. and how does the bible describe it? .. but .. you could have them too, if you wanted to. It is ALL things to ALL people, ALL at once. And magic happens, at the touch of wish .. which is why humanity gets bored so fast and decides to reincarnate for a bit of challenge .. LOL

    Just think of the fun we are going to have, at the party. :-)

  4. Hi Ama,
    I want a party after I die too :) right now, I’m doubting I will want to even come back and reincarnate so soon, even if I rest for a long time. Is it possible to stay in heaven forever after dying or do you have to reincarnate after resting? I don’t understand, what’s so fun about being alive now when there’s a place (heaven) where you can have anything you want and just relax?

  5. Hi Micle,

    How fast do you get bored? Humans were created to learn and grow. Sitting around in the sun doing nothing is nice for a week or two, but if you have a brain and any form of curiosity, eventually even the most sunny day, the best drinks and food, the most stimulating company, is going to lose its lustre and you’ll go seeking a bit of a challenge. It happens to us when we are in these bodies, and the same when we are ‘living’ in heaven. As much as I know I want a holiday after this lifetime, I also know I love the challenges of being human, and will probably be human again, somewhere along the line.

  6. Ama, I understand about being bored. I think I have been restless all my life. lol
    I use to believe in reincarnation a lot. Many times in my life I felt like I had been somewhere before this life.
    I use to think and feel like I was a Spanish girl living in early California. I even dreamed of the house I lived in. Very spacious with many doors leading outside. I learned later that all the early Spanish homes were built that way. The kitchens were outside in another building. Every room had a door that went outside to the court area [patio] All of this was in my dreams for a long time. I don’t think about it a lot anymore, or have had any recent experiences. I don’t dream about that anymore, but in my minds eye I can still see that house! :)

  7. I agree, Nancy, some of those memories can be pretty intense. I still remember being burned alive, and thrown into a volcano to appease the goddess Pele. Made for nightmares when I was a kid.

  8. I get bored really fast, honestly. What’s the point of having a “challenge” though? Is it just for the lessons and to pay back karma?

  9. It’s both, Micle. Everything we do, think, feel has a cause and an effect. How we react to the world creates energy, either positive or negative. We have to work at find peace, that quiet place, within ourselves .. it might only be fleeting, but its a neutral space from which to reflect. That’s why many people meditate .. to find the quiet.

  10. Hi Ama,

    So then, what would be a few lessons to learn? How many are there? Wouldn’t humanity run out of lessons to learn over time and we would be sitting around in heaven wondering what to do?

  11. A few lessons .. patience in the face of trouble, kindness in the face of cruelty, compassion in the face of hatred, love in the face of anger, honesty in the face of fear, courage in the face of death, trust in the face of betrayal, justice, honour .. balance in all things. And a million variations of all of them. How many? I don’t know Micle, as many as we choose for each lifetime. Some lessons are right in our faces, others are subtle and deeply felt.

    I like this quote:

    “Life is mostly froth and bubble,
    Two things stand like stone.
    Kindness in another’s trouble,
    Courage in your own.”

    ― Adam Lindsay Gordon

    Every theme has a multitude of sub-themes.

    We learn the lessons on this planet, and others. In heaven we take short holidays and then come back for more. In heaven we ‘are’ our true selves, our whole selves, not just the same aspects of the ‘self’ that experiences the human lifetime time and time again. Think of yourself as a vitally important drop of water in a great ocean that is also YOU, Micle ..

  12. Hi Ama,
    We must be quite something in heaven. Sounds nice.
    I thought that since everything is positive and restful in heaven that we don’t actually plan out the negative stuff in our lives. I thought that whatever we plan out before we are born is usually something positive. I hope that makes sense. If we plan out to be faced with anger, hatred, sadness, cruelty, and all that stuff, wouldn’t that make humans masochists since we get bored in heaven and want to go back to living life? I find that odd.

  13. Hi Micle,

    Human beings learn most and best through challenges, not by sitting around counting to flowers. Without challenge we become complacent, we stop caring, we stop trying .. we get bored, we get grumpy, we get angry ..

    Humans were created to be creators, to mimic God/Spirit, to take what ‘is’ and adapt it to make it better. We don’t do that unless we are pushed into it, by need or want ..

    And then there are the physical challenges, such as illnesses, mental or physical, and life lessons such as truth, courage, honesty, love, patience, kindness, gratitude .. what have you to be grateful for if all you do all day is sit and watch the flowers grow? No, we learn gratitude through the gift of love from others, even those who appear to hate us .. even if they only teach us how not to behave.

    Humans can choose to be masochists, sadists, murderers, etc .. or they can choose another path .. and when karma gets involved, anything is possible.

    And yes, we get bored in heaven, because there are no challenges there .. there is only Love, and while Love is ‘everything’ humans were created to be curios about all the aspects of being ourselves .. without that curiosity we would be empty vessels .. and nothing exists within a vacuum.

    Love & Peace

  14. In that case, how would karma influence a person to be, let’s say, a masochist? Do people choose in heaven to be a murderer before having that life? When it comes to karma and free will, it sounds really confusing. It’s also confusing thinking that in heaven you choose to balance karma with someone who murdered you in a past life by murdering them back in the next life.

  15. Does the path choose the walker, or the walker the path? Do we choose to be murderers or are we asked to murder someone to balance karma with them? You’ll have to ask someone next time you go ‘home’, because the answer is ‘yes’ but for very complicated reasons.

    And you don’t balance the karma of violent actions by repeating the action against your antagonist … you balance it by forgiving them, and they you. There’s nothing confusing about that. It is an act of will.

    Love & Peace
    Ama
