For this discourse, let us agree/submit that there IS a life in the hereafter and let us call it Heaven (H).
When souls arrive in (H) do they leave the Earthly beliefs and their bad actions behind?
All the politics, hatreds, prejudices, thievery, abuses, religious differences, and all so many more, Earthly human tendencies and other things that prey on our dispositions.
If so, how can this be so?
Will the Earthly person, all of a sudden, have a (H) soul that sees the light of all understanding? Or, does the final trip just erase those Earthly and human traits in the process of acceptance in (H)?
But, or, so again, how can a racist person full of prejudice, an abuser of any sorts, a thief of renown, or any person full of hatred of their fellow man, become, all of a sudden, a righteous person in (H)? How can this person mingle with those they hate in an environment of love, knowing that those around them are the people they despised and acted against on Earth?
I don’t know how this could be so, but still wonder what the ground rules are in (H) for existing there. I know someone who thinks everyone goes to (H), but I doubt if they know the rules either and how it works there.
The great mysteries of life are still there to be found eventually and it will be exciting to find out someday, but I am not in a hurry to learn them right now.
