Choose to believe

I have been asked in the past the question which is also presented in the film Prometheus (Riddley Scott): "How do you know?" (As in "how do you know Heaven is beautiful?")

The answer for me and in the film: "I don't. But it's what I choose to believe." 

Currently I choose to believe in non-duality, the non-reality of this universe, and the reality of something outside it, because:
1) It's the closest thing I have found which matches what I find. 
2) It is the thing I've found which gives most hope of attaining the warmth and light I crave. 

And I believe that exists simply because I crave it. It's impossible to crave something which you have never had the least contact with or knowledge about.

"Heaven is real"

Neurosurgeon says he visited heaven during a long coma.
There was several stages to his visit. The last one was: '"an immense void, completely dark, infinite in size, yet also infinitely comforting." He believes this void was the home of God.'
