If you want to know about Heaven, a boost to "stay in the race,"see below; it is something that has occupies my mind for some time
And if you want some scandalous confession to hold against me and mock me and dismiss me, here it is; I believe I may have mentioned this before.
After two years of sobriety, my pastor, who preternaturally liked me and treated me with some deference, suggested I meditate on life in Heaven. He provided many of the quotes you can find at: tps://www.openbible.info/topics/heaven
My sophomore year of sobriety was a swirling chaos of emotions and memories and wrongs committed. Anger was not far away. Jim Buck, my pastor, thought that his suggested meditation on life in Heaven might sooth and comfort me, help me get through this difficult time. It seemed right when he told me. And here is your ammo, if you so choose.
The first time I tried it, with pleasant music playing softly in the background, I lasted maybe 10 or 20 seconds. No pain, endless peace and joy--that is hell. It is becoming a puppy for God. How I felt at the time, after decades accustomed to conflict and strife and schemes for survival as the usual, such eternal peace was maddening. I liked the fight, or maybe, as said, just grew accustomed to it.
This was suggested in the fall of 1986. Since then I have tried this meditation, I don't know, maybe a hundred times: same results every time. To me, this disqualifies me for a pass through St. Peter's toll gate. It will be eternal damnation or annihilation: that debate is tied. So, you not only have some heavy ammo but also cause for celebration.

Rumi, I just found this. No one wants you to live in this Hell that you have created for yourself, absolutely no one! IMO No Christian will celebrate your damnation! Whatever you let in when you opened your mind to meditate on Heaven is not from Heaven! You are being deceived and only you can stop this if you will call out to Jesus to come into your heart! You are being prayed for, but you’re going to have to pray even more and STOP meditating!
You are wasting precious time ! Stop this nonsense before it’s too late! You’re going to play the victim one time too many!

Well put and I second that.
