I do wonder why Christians and others hang their heads on this concept hoping for something better through a destruction process... makes no sense.
Then think of it as a transformation rather than a destruction then. It is all point of view. We are destroying our old selves every single instant and becoming something different in every subsequent instant. Yet we do no think of it as destruction, but as change, or growth. A seed must be destroyed in order for it to become a fruitful tree, yet it is not really a loss, but a fulfillment. The "destruction process" will be a falling away of the old world, and a transformation into a new world, where human beings will no longer suffer, and the soul will be in union with God. The path of the Christian believer is theosis, becoming god. It is also a transformation, which is a destruction of an old thing as it becomes a new thing. In Jesus, God became man, so that Man could become god.
