What Is Everyday Life in Heaven Like?

What Do People Do in the Afterlife?

In heaven, we find ourselves living in environments that fit our moral character developed in Earth School. Dr. Robert Hare conveyed from spirit that one’s immediate place in the afterlife is determined by a sort of “moral specific gravity.” The moral specific gravity is evident in the person’s good works or lack of good works. The afterlife is made up of many planes, spheres, or realms. Someone with a low moral specific gravity will gravitate to a lower plane, but can still gradually evolve to a higher plane with the help of more enlightened spirits.[i]

Most people find themselves in the realm for people with a higher specific gravity that the Theosophists called “Summerland.” People who are loving and compassionate live in pleasant circumstances with others who are loving and compassionate. Their world is full of love and devoid of discord and loneliness. On the other hand, people who on earth were violent, cruel, and despicable find themselves with others who are violent, cruel, and despicable. Their surroundings match their mental and spiritual condition: they are darker, with unpleasant odors and regular unpleasant sounds coming from their bickering and fights. Living in darker, unpleasant circumstances is not the result of a judgment and certainly isn’t any form of a hell. The unfortunate people in these regions and those with them are creating the environment through their thoughts and dispositions.

Dr. Robert Hare, a renowned inventor and an emeritus professor of chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania medical school while on earth, conveyed from spirit that one’s immediate place in the life after this life is determined by a sort of “moral specific gravity.” The moral specific gravity is evident in the person’s good works or lack of good works. The afterlife is made up of many planes, spheres, or realms. Someone with a low moral specific gravity will gravitate to a lower plane, but can still gradually evolve to a higher plane with the help of more enlightened spirits.[ii]

Jasper Swain, receiving messages from his son after his death, explains his son’s description of the life conditions each person experiences in the life after this life.

While you are still on earth, your thought, your intentions, everything you do, gives your soul a certain rate of vibration. … When you die and manifest here, you would go straight to the part of our world that vibrates at [that rate].[iii]
Elizabeth Fry, who led the eighteenth-century reformation of UK prisons, explains that people coming into the life after this life find themselves in circumstances that fit their mental and spiritual status. You can hear Elizabeth Fry explain this more fully at www.earthschoolanswers.com/fry2/.
The average person certainly finds, coming here, a happy state of being and great opportunity for knowledge, experience and rest, if it’s necessary. There is no depression. The only depression, of course, that one would find is if a person coming here has a great deal that they have cause to regret in their make up and in their life. And in consequence, people do go through a state of readjustment, where they themselves assess themselves, for the first time probably, and they begin to feel they could have done so differently when on Earth and they could have helped so much more than they did. The very self-centered people find things very difficult at first. But, of course, we must remember and realize that everyone finds, eventually, that state of existence which one could call happiness. It’s something which is never denied, but everyone must earn it. And so everyone goes through changes and stages of evolution, until such time as they have reached a certain goal, if you like, and probably for a very long time … uh, they will stay in that environment until they feel the need or the urge to go further.[iv]
Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson in the life after this life, speaking through medium Anthony Borgia, explains that his spiritual development affected the living circumstances in his new life.
Both the house and the garden, he told me, were the harvest I had reaped for myself during my earth life. Having earned the right to possess them, I had built them with the aid of generous souls who spend their life in the spirit world performing such deeds of kindness and service to others. … Frequently this work is undertaken and carried out by those who, on earth, were expert in such things, and who also had a love for it.[v]
Dr. Franke, who was killed at Dachau death camp, spoke in a Leslie Flint session on April 6, 1964. He explains that the world in the life after this life is created for the individual by their thoughts. As a result, people create the world they expect to have without realizing it. You can listen to him speaking these words at www.earthschoolanswers.com/franke/.
But, it is so strange because it is as if the very thoughts of man can create for himself that which for him is the most best or most necessary. That is why when your friend here, he say to me, “describe your world” I know of course that it is expect for me to describe my world. I describe my world as I know it or try to describe it. But every man who come to you from this side would describe to you exactly what he has experienced. But what his experience may be, may be perhaps very different to another. And if you can realize that this world is a world where thoughts are so powerful, that a man can create for himself, even at first perhaps unknowingly, the kind of conditions which are best for him. It is as if it is a law, a natural law here, for man to enter into a condition or condition or state of being which is best suited for him. Of course I have explained a little of how some people’s minds are so confused and whose conditions of thought are so bad, that they need to be tended. And their thoughts needed to be changed, by the good thoughts and the real thoughts of people who have knowledge, and they are taken to certain places for this. But most people entering into this world for the first time, are usually of course met by their loved ones. They’re taken to the homes of their loved ones and they are treated like a lost soul that has been found. They are shown everything, but you must remember that even though you may show a soul from your world certain things, if it is not for them ready to see, they do not see in the same way. It is difficult to explain this, but a person cannot always understand something immediately.[vi]
