What would life in heaven be like? The Bible repeatedly assures its readers that heaven is where they want to go, but provides almost no information about what life would be like there.

I have to say I'm more than amused by the collection of answers received on what other people think they see in this image of clouds. I've heard it all.

I realize that some may see this as a sign, an act of God if you will. There will be others, those who will doubt. And that's okay. But one thing's for sure, and that's how remarkably clear this image in the sky really is.

As I was finishing my second dessert, Jesus rode up on a rainbow-colored horse and gazed down upon me. He looked like Kenny Loggins during his "Danger Zone" period, except with bluer eyes, and smiled the most compassionate smile I had ever seen.

It was one of those puff-piece New York Post assignments that landed in my lap once in a while back in the day, and that was fine by me -- no crime, no chalk outlines on the street, no survivors to interview.

Ever since I was a young girl, I knew that Ramadan was an extraordinary time of the year. It is a time when there was an abundance of everything in our lives -- food, family, friends, love, giving, forgiving and prayers.

I recognized all the Bible verses, the step-by-step, point-by-point sales pitch for an eternal destination. But now, I have no interest in buying what they're selling. If this is the way to Heaven, I'm not going.

Heaven and Hell Revised: Updates From the World of Spirit

Stafford Betty | Posted 08.19.2014 | Religion
Stafford Betty

It would be disingenuous of me to claim that I know for certain what happens when we die and what follows. Mediumistic communication is a slippery subject, and I am aware of its potential pitfalls. But I am also widely read in the area, and what I've tried to show here is the remarkable richness of the best of spirit literature.

We are all going to die. Everyone knows that. Having cancer just makes it a little bit more real. I am not a religious person. I know that the majority of the world population do believe in God, heaven and hell and/or some sort of afterlife. That's ok.

Maybe it's the altitude, but heli-skiing is like the best drug I have never taken, and it's certainly as addictive. I want to go back again and again. And it's probably the most dangerous and expensive drug I have ever tried, as well. This is not a sport for sane people.
