I think it's part of the denial and bargaining stages of grief.

Don't assume everyone adheres to a religion with a "heaven" in it.

Do you realise that there is a contradiction in what you wrote? The "true satisfaction" you speak of is a form of reward, too. But I'd say there is nothing wrong with the selfishness to satisfy your innate sense of fairness or empathy by helping others.


Only in heaven, where we are one with God, can we truly love one another and become completely selfless. There we will achieve true happiness. Real joy comes in helping others, this is the final form of that.


In the heaven as you picture it, will there even be a need for help? And won't everyone refuse offers of help and offer theirs instead out of selflessness? And back to the comment you reacted to, what will people do all the time without anything to do, won't they become jaded and bored? And what about infinite time, with infinite memories of having done nothing? If you think about it, your image of heaven is actually horrible, like Chinese torture, worse than hell.

I'm not a very religious person at all and to get this of the way, if I offend you I apologize since I don't intend to. And I respect what your religion is, don't think I'm saying it's wrong, you have the right to believe in what you want to believe.

But I seriously doubt there is a heaven, hell, reincarnation, ect. Just think about it, a giant sphere floating.... With people living on it. That's pretty outrageous. And why so many religions? It mind boggles me. I just think we die and that's it. Nothing else. We just leave behind our body to decompose and turn into soil like other dead animals do.

Again, I hope I didn't offend anyone, religion is a touchy subject anyways.

I just hope when I die, I decompose in a potato farm so people can eat me.

to be honest, i don't believe in heaven. people often get scared at the idea of non-existence, but it really isn't scary. if you think about it, you will feel the same way you felt in the year 1764. you will feel nothing. it's not scary, the idea is actually kind of peaceful.


It is not the idea of non-existence that scares people....
It is the idea of ceasing to existence that scares people...

Heaven to me is place no human soul has been to yet and will continue to be that way for a long time. Because Judgement Day isn't here yet so therefore, not even "Mother Mary", however good she may have been, is there yet. People seem to have misunderstood this and say, "I'm sure she's/he's happy now. He's in heaven after all," and I find these statements quite disturbing.

But I do believe it's there. There's no need to argue over boredom and anxieties over death, because I believe that if you find yourself entering heaven, the needs of the flesh no longer accompanies our soul. I guess that's why they mention "eternal happiness," because what more could you want if "wanting" is not an option?
