There's a story of a rabbi who was allowed to enter the world-to-come. At first, he was disappointed because he had expected to find a grand place where the righteous lived in luxury, surrounded by wonders. All he found was people studying in a celestial yeshiva (school). So he asked, "Is that what they do here? Isn't that what they did during their life on earth?" And the answer came, "Yes. But now they understand what they study!"
