When I was younger, I had an incredibly spiritual experience after consuming an entire bottle of Robitussin (I do NOT recommend this, btw... it was extremely overwhelming and strange and unbalanced overall). As I fell asleep, my dreams in my subconscious mind continued to be influenced by this substance, though most of it had worn off already. Here's what happened.
I was floating around in space, not as a physical being but just naturally wandering/traversing the universe. A bright ball of white light with lines of light stretching out forever horizontally in each direction came into view before me. Then a giant, booming voice (which I immediately identified in my dream as the voice of God/Source) told me, "This is what ETERNITY looks like." After I woke up, this dream stuck with me... and it has stayed with me for YEARS, often coming up into the forefront of my thoughts for reevaluation, to be pondered once again with fresh perspective after broader life experience, gaining more wisdom, and receiving/uncovering more knowledge.
I used to think superficially, on the surface, that it was literally that light stretching out forever was what eternity looks like. However, after becoming aware of my spiritual awakening a year ago, this dream has pestered me again on several occasions, inviting me to take another look at what this voice may have actually meant for me to understand.
From my current perspective, it means that "eternity" is an umbrella term for everything in existence. The bright ball of light is a star consisting of the same materials as you and I, as earth, as plants, as everything ON earth, as everything in space including stars, black holes, meteors, space debris, you name it. Lately I have been pondering what the infinite life of an eternal energetic being (aka a SOUL) would possibly look like, and if everything is made up of the same energetic components on a molecular level, then WE, at some point in our future, could very well choose to become stars, planets, and other celestial beings if our souls so choose.
It doesn't make sense that a physical human body (aka a meat suit) would be the be all end all if the eternal soul (and thus eternal life) exists. That's like saying you, as a physical human who typically lives for 80 years or so, are only allowed to purchase ONE vehicle to drive around, but only for a total of 10 years.. a small portion of our actual lives. Well, to the soul - to the eternal energy being - this vessel that is the human body is a highly sophisticated, very well integrated and custom designed vehicle for us to drive around in for a mere fraction of our ETERNAL existence. As an ETERNAL being, it becomes difficult to shy away from human so-called "struggle" and so-called "hardship" if we understand that it ALL serves the absolute greatest good. Things that we see as detrimental and risky and dangerous from our limited human perspective become life's absolute greatest teachers from our soul's perspective.
