Imagine the love that you have for whoever it is that you have loved most in this lifetime. Now think of extending that great love to every being, but magnified a hundredfold! That seems to be where we are heading, dear friends. We lost nothing - we gain everything!!
So you bring up an excellent point about whether there is attachment in the Summerlands. Can there be love without attachment? Difficult for us mere mortals to comprehend.
It would be nice if in the Hereafter we could just be ourselves. If God Who created us would love us just the way we are, just like an earthly parent loves their child unconditionally.

We are just ourselves whichever dimension we happen to be living in and are loved just as we are. What else could we be even if the overcoat we now wear is different from the old one we used to wear?
Hey guys, I'm back. Anyways I want to give you what I believe heaven will be if there is one. I believe heaven to be basically like a state of mind. It is beyond your wildest dreams that can come true, everything you ever want to happen can happen, earthly good things can be done but we wouldn't care too much about it, time wouldn't exist, we can create things, there is infinite love, I can travel the universe, and I can spend time with my loved ones when I want! I can travel back in time to observe, I can do simulations of "what if", I can help guide loved ones, etc. Infinite amount of things to do we'd never run out, never get bored, etc. If you prefer unconsciousness and eternal sleep, sure you can get that but you can also some how wake yourself up from eons of that nap. If you want to be reincarnated I guess you can, but why would you if this place is so great? You can learn lessons here and experience through others so I doubt you'd reincarnate unless you died a baby or lived a terrible life and were curious to see what it's like to feel. "Can't know joy without feeling pain". So after I know pain why would I want to go through it all again unless I'm a masochist? But here in heaven you can be a bird and see how it feels. You can be avatar haha... hell be whatever, I just want to be with my partner =( is all I want...to much to ask???
Main point is, in my heaven I can do what pleases me, see loved ones if i want, and most importantly of all I REMEMBER who I am...my husband will not be my daughter O.o.
Anyways there is a reason why I think this. There is a strong case of evidence of NDE (Near Death Experience) on "The Day I Died" documentary. Check it on Youtube. Pamela Reynolds was able to recall what the tools looked like even though she's never seen them. It amazed doctors but of course some scientists are skeptic and tried to debunk it but it is merely their theory of WHY she was able to recall what the tool looked like, after all the doctors were there and not them. Anyways I can't remember whether it was Through the worm hole's Near Death or The Day I died documentary, but a scientist tried to give a rational explanation of Pam Reynolds saying that perhaps smaller parts than what we can imagine are within the brain microtubules and disperse. This would be your conscious, soul, mind or whatever. Anyways, since our minds are very powerful (we imagine, dream, we think, we are infinite, we create our own realities) we can imagine what heaven is as to us...what we want it to be. Heaven will be a state of mind. Our consciousness continues and we can interact with other consciousnesses if we wish. If your mind is hell then you'll be in hell. Maybe someone can help you get out of it.
That would make sense why near death experiences are similar but different in perspective. That way everyone is happy! lol

Our struggles to grow may be 'low-level commands' needed in early development, eventually made redundant as our experiences raise the 'control level' to take over from the simple, hard-wired instructions?
The more and more I think about religion and faith, the more atheism sounds appealing and logical. The thought of not having to deal with life over and over, the thought with not having to forget who I am and make new loved ones, it just starting to sound more peaceful with just leaving the memories and love I have that existed. I wanna be me and only me.
