If life was a dream, then dying must be the moment when you woke up. It was so simple it must be true. You died, the dream was over, you woke up. That's what people meant when they talked about going to heaven. It was like waking up.
About This Quote
When we die we do not wake up and find ourselves in a better place than we were in life. When we die we find ourselves in the same place we were when we died. We are brought back to earth to continue living our lives until the end of our days, when after death, life is over for us for good.
