It is common among monotheistic religion believers to expect to be judged by a God after their death. This God is believed to be one who rules the heavenly world with an iron fist, ruling our fate and determining our destiny, independent of our own will.
I'm here to tell you that this isn't the case at all. God is a loving God who allows us to determine our fate forever! We will be where we choose to be and where we focus ourselves to be. If we feel punished it is only because we punish ourselves because we believe we are unworthy and deserving of punishment. The reality we experience is an outcome of our mental processes and the beliefs we hold about the world and our place in it, during this life and in the world to come.
Many humans project their fears onto God, who they view as a demanding tyrant, but by all accounts this view is wrong and he truly is the loving father that we would wish him to be.
