“If we really understood Heaven, we would be most
unhappy and unsatisfied with life on Earth.
We would rebel against our earthly limitations.
If we saw Heaven, we could not bear this earth.
That’s why Heaven is forever: we cannot bear to
leave it after we get there.”

Can you visualize a world with no more
death, no more pain, no more hunger,
no more fear, no more sorrow, no more
crying nor sickness, a world where
everything is a joy and a pleasure.
