Alright, after some debate I've decided to put this topic here. The reason why there was some debate is because not all heavens include the involvement of angels.
What is heaven in your eyes?
In my eyes heaven is mass acceptance and mass peace. A plane in which everyone communicates on one level, making energies and personal opinions quickly dispersed and widely understood. There is no discrimination, or even regret of what came before. Despite that deeds that can be classified as wrong and harmful are always acknowledged for what they are and are never forgotten, used instead as a way to understand the motivation of ones self. Does this heaven exist? Yes, but it is mostly a vacation, no one really stays there.
That is just one place I would classify as heaven, I'll post another later.
*EDIT* xD LMAO!! IRONY! This is the 666th post in this forum. Of course I don't hold much credit in the number thing but... it's humorous all the same. xD

Hmm.. My vision of heaven is slightly stereotypical really, Crystal spires and gigantic sprawling cities and havens, the angels and spirits and other beings floating/flying/running/waiting for a ride if you will and so on, the higher you went, the less material looking things were and the more you saw the universe as a whole, like a giant magnifying glass. I remember a Demurge free heaven, friendly debates and so on, gatherings, reuniting families and so on. I remember "Elysian" fields, long sprawling fields with people resting or peacefully reading books of different sorts about. Rivers and sparkling oceans, and elementals within. I remember the birth of man sort of, not so much so i would do better simply to stick to the books until that particular memory decides to shoot out. hm...its more peaceful...and incorruptable than the other variants i've come across. Granted i also remember the whole Lucifer thing. That stepped on a lot of toes. But who knows what the reasoning behind that was if there was any, or if it was all planned out, for surely, for good to exist as a concept, so must evil and who but the highest of the angels to do so? something known about and planned for but not implied or set in motion by any higher force other than Lucifer himself...sort of a cosmic, "told you he'd do it...well then, do your thing"....im rambling, whatever, needless to say, that is what i remember of the heaven i seem to recall...
"Hatred is gained as much by good works as by evil."
"I'm not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it."
"Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions."
"The fact is that a man who wants to act virtuously in every way necessarily comes to grief among so many who are not virtuous."
My heaven is a very earthlike place in a lot of ways, except there is a sort of perfection and ease of operation there. Like Xav, I have noticed that the closer in towards the center you get the less solid, and concrete things get. My heaven is on the outskirts, near the border. It is beautiful, but very real feeling. It is a merciful heaven, or in many cases a recieving heaven, which means we have a lot of new people coming there, and a lot of people who just feel more comfortable in our relaxed and comforting atmosphere.
I picture the map of the mother's heavens, as being kind of hat shaped, and the mountain in the center is the most holy place, where people cannot hold a secret or private thought, and communication is completely telepathic. In that center you are neither over here, or over there, you just are, and there are no objects, or material forms to give you a frame of reference of where you are. I have heard it is a very odd feeling that some people just can't get accustomed to, so those people prefer areas on the edges of heaven. Even people who live more towards the center, like to go to my area for vacations. They enjoy the feel of sidewalk beneith their feet, and to experience earth like sensations, sights and sounds for a change.
I am a younger one of my sophian race, and part of a Sophian's job is to be a sort of hostess in their small portion of Sophia's heaven. We run our heavens according to our natures, and my nature is Mercy. I tend to offer security, comfort, and a chance to be creative. The whole place makes people feel at home, just by the nature of it. It offers a lot of comfort, and insures that people feel secure there.
Most people in my heaven work. They each have duties based on what they like to do. I am hostess, but I delegate a lot of decision making, and adminsitrative tasks. We also have archetects, and fashion designers, and bakers. People amuse themselves in their spare time with a lot of different activities, like going to amusment parks, and shopping in huge beautiful malls called agoras.
Heaven is vast, and My area is about 200 miles, by 200 miles, or it would be if if were physical, and it is just a very, very tiny fraction of the heavens of the mothers. There are other heavens also, but the heavens of the motehrs, are the ones I am most familiar with.

Forests, rivers, streams, sheltered lakes mountains. Vulpines, Humans and other creatures living together peacefully. Nature accepting back her children and her children protecting her. Open places, cities that are in harmony with the natural order of things and all beings are considdered equals. This is my heaven. It would be a nice place.
