OK, most of us want to exit this hell-hole on Earth (although it could have been and can still be - paradise), had it been shared with the right people who knew how to manage and live within the laws of nature.
Also many of us have been controlling to other's as well as havd had BEEN controlled (which makes for a hellish existence).
So what do you imagine paradise to be like? Besides a beautiful place, what is the reality you wish to be in?
- One that is free from cruelty to animals?
- A place where we are all like-minded? (How can we get there if we keep arguing and trying to control other's? - something we must give up)
- A place where we don't have to 'work' in slavery?
Jesus did say to his disciples, 'today you will join me in paradise'. (http://bible.cc/luke/23-43.htm)
So it's a place that DOES exist. But how do we get there? While we can't really be 'rescued' from this hellish existence, and skip to paradise, we are here to learn to be Masters. I don't think it works that we skip Earth school and miss the important lessons we are here to learn.
One thing most humans desire is to be around like-minded people. It doesn't work to just wish people who arn't like us, off the Earth. The attitude is changed from within, and that is one of acceptance.
If we want to be in paradise, wouldn't it work in a way that we must first be strong (and Masters) of ourselves? Then we get to join other's who are strong and have also obtained Mastery?
Feel free to share what you envision paradise to be like - then we can form a clear picture and keep this picture in our minds - a destiny we wish to arrive in.
