Here is a short list of similar motifs concerning the Heaven state of mind:

Elysium (Elysian fields)
Paradise
Avalon
Arcadia
New Jerusalem
Shambhala
Xanadu
Utopia
Shangri-la
Valhalla
Asgard

This is a collection of names of what may be called the "Bliss" state of Buddhism, though not necessarily a Buddhist concept overall, since these names come from all over the World.

[en.m.wikipedia.org]

The Wikipedia list is the long list and I added it here to IMPLICATE all humans with the EXPECTATION of such "Places" in the Real World, that is, this Earth.

I have concluded that these are the Emblems of the IDEAL state of existence that nearly everyone has conjoined themselves to. It is no mistake, these Ideals are hardwired into our very makeup as conscious beings. It is, in fact ever so prevalent that one must conclude that THEY ARE REAL IDEALS in the Community of mankind.

Some call them myths, yet it is to be ascertained that even the antagonists have a place for THE IDEAL. It may be either religious, or rational, like the Atheists who proclaim their non-religious proclamations. It is UNAVOIDABLE and "curries" the particular human agenda with the BEST OF ALL WORLDS.

I was touched with an intuition that these Names all point to a COMMON mental State of PURE BLISS, and that it is communicable across the lines of differentiation, and that this common phenomena resides in our minds FOR A REASON.

What Reason, then? It has to do DIRECTLY with every attention and effort to BRING ABOUT A SAFE WORLD to live in. It is about a personal and communal re-engineering toward the form of civilization in order to exemplify our HIGHEST IDEALS in all that we are and do.
These Names all come from the same place within us, TRUTH AND LOVE.

That's it. And every person CAN BRING ABOUT A BEAUTIFUL WORLD, right where it begins: inside the minds and hearts of our own EXPECTATIONS AND PURSUITS for the FORMULA of well-being and social transformation. It is POSSIBLE, and all of these Names attribute our own EXPECTATIONS of that VERY REALITY.

Meditate on these Names and consider the Blessed State that not only belongs to us, but that these IDEALS come from every one who BELIEVES the Bliss, the Blessed and the Beauty that resides inside of our own consciousness.

I savour any comments...

You should dissolve all discrimination of individuality and absorb all things into a harmonious oneness.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.

Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
