Let me tell you of an experience that happened to me. I had a dream one night that I was in heaven. As I looked around there were mountains, grass, golden sandy streets and a fountain with beautiful water in it. My best friend who died was sitting on the grass and I went to join her. We talked for a long time about me being pregnant and just generally catching up on old times. The thing that caught me the most about this place was the beauty that emanated from it. I cannot describe this beauty in human terms. The only thing I can say is that there was a peace that surpassed all understanding. Let me say that I didn’t want to leave this place, but I wanted to stay forever.
Then I heard a voice saying, “you have to go back, you have a husband and a baby” I begged not to go back, but to stay in this place forever and as I said that I started to cry. The next thing I knew was that I was sat bolt upright in my bed amazed by this whole experience. I also wondered if this had been a dream or not. When I described this place to my husband it was fresh in my mind, but the more time went on the more I lost the feelings I had felt there. The more I was aware of material feelings and soon lost the peace, beauty and tranquillity that I felt in this place. If this was heaven let me tell you that when you get there you will never want to return to this miserable, painful life of suffering.
Sure there are good things about this life, but there are a lot better things about the next one.
