    "Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
    That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
    And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
    I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me." John 17:20-23

    Heaven I think is a place where we live in each other.

    But that needs to be here and now, does it not? Instead it seems that most people are already in a hell of their own making.

    Hell is total separation, do not scientists today say that one day the whole universe will separate atom by atom?

    And those today on planet Earth who don't know God at all, are they not separated from Him? When we meet the Master, we enter heaven for the first time, first heaven. As we grow toward God, if we do, there is second and eventually third heaven also. This is what is to be happening here and now. Too many people worrying about tomorrow when heaven is to be today right here and right now or likely not at all.

    I think that a heaven people make of their own will be pale in comparison.

    We can only even imagine it as God improves our vision. For now we still at best see as through a glass darkly. But the face to face is coming for those who make it when they make it.

    Which would mean we shouldn't be fundamentally inclined.

    And you don't even have to bend your knees to pray. Just talk out from your heart, because God sees the heart.

    Without a vision my friend, we also simply perish. If we pursue rightly the bit of light God lets us see, we will make it because He will provide always the means. People will miss the Way because they did not care. People will lose their way because they became weary in well doing and let go of the Master hand.

    We are born again of His Spirit so that explains "I in you"....

    Is there some sort of communication traveling between our spirits?

    its the only way we can communicate with Him....he is spirit and we must worship Him in spirit and in truth...the carnal mind is enmity against God and cannot know the mind of God.

    prolly better to contemplate that as the ultimate recombining, and "separate" as what we have now?

    Revelation 20:11 KJV
    And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
