Wondering 'bout paradise ..

Is there really such a place as paradise? or should we consider paradise maybe to be a state in which we are for a few seconds of our lives? or should we contemplate what is meant by paradise in the sense of it meaning the complete opposite to it is currently known. (if that makes sense)

Well, I do believe in paradise because I don’t think this infamous always - found but never reached 'place' comes around that easily. You know that old withered thing in the corner of your room called a 'dictionary' says paradise is the Garden of Eden in religion, an abode of eternal peace e.g. heaven, a place of true beauty and a state of freedom and carelessness -why I question if we haven’t been getting the meaning of paradise to be a place.


Take this scenario - an overworked middle aged women finally gets the honeymoon she couldn’t afford when her and her husband first eloped, sitting on a beach much like the one above says 'ah this is paradise'... but when you think is it really paradise? When the honeymoon is over she will fly away from this 'paradise' and will return to the daily grind of work itself, bills will still come flooding in and money will still remain budgeted - so in this sense i find paradise to be a state that will not last but is here and right now in the moment.

Lovers paradise is a completely different thing however! Lovers paradise is something that brings us a warm fuzzy feeling inside where butterflies and rollercoaster dips and dives all roll into one massive feeling for someone that you arent sure likes you or not... you think probably not.

So why do we perceive paradise to be a place rather than a feeling? Personally i think paradise is a feeling of true ecstasy, think about this idea:

Paradise is always where we want to be, tomorrow - but we can never reach 'tomorrow' because the 'tomorrow' you wanted... is today!
