A Safe Place Together
Not that many years ago, I once had a thought about where I would like to go
when I died. Heaven for us has many images. Some think of white clouds and
blue sky. Others think of white light and "views" from above back down to
earth. These views for some are thought to include a rich and wonderful
understanding of who we were in our living days.
For some reason, the scene I envision is different. And for reasons possibly
having more to do with psychology, my scene (in heaven) is in a room or cave
on some quiet planet which has a pretty view. It is safe. There is only a
table and a chair in the room. It is silly for me to think in terms of how I
would feel in this safe place, since in death I am pretty sure we have no
feelings. But it is entertaining to imagine having them "out there" too. If
it were possible, I believe they would encompass all that one feels in
complete solitude. The ability to fully appreciate the view itself would
comprise most if not all of that feeling of peace.
