    Serpentina,

    I think it is more of than changing one's mind or having a different way of looking at things. I see Nirvana as a different state of existence.

    So, one should look at Paradise in the Bible in reference to it

    Except that is all allegory...never happened. No 7 days, no people made of clay or ribs...a creation story...one of many...but you knew that.

    From the New Testament wil...

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradise#New_Testament
    "The word is used three times in the New Testament writings:
    • Luke 23:43 – by Jesus on the cross, in response to the thief's request that Jesus remember him when he came into his kingdom.
    • 2 Cor.12:4 – in Paul's description of a man's description of a third heaven paradise, which may in fact be a vision Paul himself saw.
    • Rev.2:7 – in a reference to the Gen.2:8 paradise and the tree of life."
