It's kinda embarrassing that I'm posting all these threads, and posting the most in threads... but whatever. I've got work to procrastinate from okay??!
So. It doesn't matter if you believe in Paradise, or if you don't, or if you think it's literal, or not. Forget all that noise.
I'm just curious what people's idea of Paradise would be like. Forget what the Bible, Quran, whatever says about, like, fruits and rivers and stuff. I mean the aspect of it where it's the best place ever. What, for you guys, is the best place ever? Imagine anything could happen. (Short of, you know, evil.) What would it be like?
For me, I'm imagining a place where there are forests without bugs (except small ants - I like those). Lots of weeping willows. There is a little brook, trickling away, narrrow enough that my fear of large bodies of water doesn't kick in. There are deer that I can pet with my hand and horses that I can ride on without it being hard for me. Within a short horse ride (over an endless amount of space) I can arrive in the same place in any of the 4 seasons. Which is super cool. There are birds and they aren't scary and they're blue and chirping happily. Azure skies, smooth rocks, green grass, bright yellow dandelions.. I'm talking the works. Every second is like living in a piece of poetry, it's all gorgeous.
But wait. That's not all!! Bears are declawed and they love me and I can hug them and feel their soft fur. There's a little kitty that I own, and I also have this lynx that I can ride around on, and a tiger.
I can ride away to my cute little cottage and there I have enormous piles of books - just endless - from my favourite authors. I can read a book and feel what the author is feeling. There is a giant book, entitled: Life: A Brief History all about humanity. It's got everything: anthropology, sociology, psychology, neuroscience, the works. I can piece it all together with my mind, and my mind is like 200000x smarter in Paradise. I read all the theories anyone's ever had, all the bright ideas and sparks, and I remember it all and I can analyse it so efficiently, and every time I do so I know I'm right, but there's more.. there's just an endless amount of stuff for me to know.
Then there's a book about the universe, and I can shut my eyes and travel inside any page and see stars and blazing white lights, but when I do this I'm with my family so that I don't get scared.
Then I go back home and I pet my kitty and bake food for people, and my house is always clean, and I talk to people about good things and we're all happy and good and moral, and everyone has this warmth inside of them.
What about you guys?
And loads of dusks and dawns.
And it will all be glorious and I can hear nature, but I feel the way I do during a glorious overture or something. Or when I read really awesome poetry. *
Also, in Heaven SDD is never rude to me and he believes that cheating on your wife is wrong.
:P Just kidding. * (Low blow?)
Also I will be formless. I mean, I'll have a form of some sort, but I won't care about my looks or my ego, it'll all be about the spirit and I'll be totally unconcerned with my body. (Bye bye blackheads.)
Although if I was concerned about my looks in Heaven, I'd want long eyelashes. One set of long eyelashes please God. *
I feel like I could've made my description of Heaven sooo much more poetic. Geesh, it kinda sounds so horrible right now. It's poetic in my head though XD
Also I'm just talking to myself now...
And lots & lots of carrot cake! And cupcakes! I wouldn't crave them though. I'd eat them, be happy, and not get fat. *
"Yes, I'll have the order of half a dozen cupcakes, please."
Sorry, couldn't resist. XD
Anyways, just poppin' in. I'll seriously try to catch up on posting tomorrow.
I'm off to bed now for real now.
*forces herself to shut off computer*
Being able to conjur total silence at any time without that annoying ear-ringing sound. Also just not having APD or misophonia in the first place. I'd always be able to concentrate. I would be smarter, but not too smart, just enough that every subject is within my grasp but still challenging. I'd have all the time I'd ever need to learn them all, too - and I wouldn't forget anything that I'd learned. I would have access to all the things I would obsess over here on Earth (all computer hardware and software, all lego sets, all literature ever, etc.) and could use it whenever I wanted without breaking it. There would be regular Nerf wars among all of my friends, because those are just awesome. Speaking of friends, we'd spend long hours bantering and collaborating on things and never have serious arguments. I could eat all manner of desserts without getting full (or fat).
Oh, and s.ex. Lots and lots of s.ex all the time.
Now I've got that "two tickets to Paradise" song in my head. Thanks, Dess. :P
Anyways, I'll post my paradise later, because I don't have time at the moment. *
"Oh, and s.ex. Lots and lots of s.ex all the time."
Pretty much sums up my position on it.
I would be able to have s.ex with any guy I'd want to, they'd all like me (but not in a creepy way), and I could have it any way I wanted it.
I'm not going to say anything more than that, 'cause honestly an in-depth description of my s.exual fantasies is appropriate.
Although it is called for, given the topic of the thread.
Also I'd be able to be anywhere I wanted to and have all the fwoosh fly around and do anything and every part of the economy and politics and stuff would be either non-existent or perfect.
I'd want to learn stuff for fun too. I don't want any of the knowledge I gain to be actually useful :)
And I can only feel pain when I want to. ;)
LOL, "an in-depth description of my s.exual fantasies is appropriate"
meant to say inappropriate :P
Wow, way to defile my thread -_- :P
And SDD, I didn't know you had tinnitus! That must suck. All those ear problems if you wanna go into music..
Wait, really? That's a disorder? I've never met anyone who hasn't had that happen, so I figured it was just a thing that affects everyone when they go from a noisy environment to a silent one.
Having a mind that could understand everything and the time to learn it all.
And lots of candy.
Me? I would like to be able to create my own worlds and paradises and discover new things. I would also want everyone to be loving and understanding, not self centered and bratty. I'd like to pick my creator's mind, a conversation which I think would never logically end as there's an infinite amount of knowledge (infinite amount of variety = infinite knowledge about infinite amount of variety...at the very least). And most of all, I'd just like to be at peace. No more tears, no more violence or bad thoughts or heartache. Just...beautiful peace. The feeling I get when I'm not really thinking about anything, just soaking in the moment and recording it without dissecting what it means. Just pure peace.
Definitely with the candy though. And endless conversations with other people.
I'm not sure. Tinnitus doesn't happen to everyone though. I mean, yeah, like after a concert it does, but if it's happening randomly you might want to get your dr. to check on it. *
I read up on it a bit more, and no, I don't have tinnitus. Instead I'm just a human. So I guess that's good to know.
Always good to know you're human (Y)
"Are we humaaaaan or are we daaaancers"
Paradise for me:
I would live in a big grassy field where there are big trees for shade and a slight breeze is always blowing. I would walk around barefoot in the grass and just lay there for hours without a troublesome thought.
All the people I love would be there. Including Jesus. I would get to talk to him, touch the wounds on his hands, and just prasie his name for eternity.
I'd get to explore other planets and meet new people (which I would actually enjoy doing opposed to now XD).
There would be lots of singing. All praises to God.
I could play piano, ukulele, guitar, whatever instrument I want.
I'd get to learn and create. I could write stories, poems, and songs. And draw, paint, and sculpt. I'd learn about Math and Science. Maybe I could even create my own language...
And of course I could learn more and more about the Bible and God's plan of redemption.
I could ride horses all the time. And I wouldn't fall or get scared. And the horses can gallop for hours without tiring.
There would be no sin. No one would want to sin or bring harm to others or to the things around them.
It would be peaceful and we can all feel God's presence there.
I can't wait. :)
God bless. ♥
