Recently, I was thinking more and more about when the bible talks about dying and going to heaven. I have come to the conclusion the following about modern interpretations of the meaning and my interpretation;
Heaven is not separate from this earth; as many interpret it to mean.
When the bible talks about dying, and the soul going to paradise, it is talking about a spiritual awakening, because a spiritual awakening is death; death of a mistaken identity. This is when the soul enters paradise. This is not separate from the earth.
One may undergo this transition within their current bodies.
Just thought I would post this because I think this is what the bible really means when it talks about entering paradise after death.
All the best,
