Heaven on Earth

So one thing I reject about Abrahamic religion is the idea that the world is a terrible place and we have to work to earn a place in some afterlife heaven. I am a Religious Humanist and believe that this life is probably it, there is no afterlife. As a consequence I feel that we humans need to try and make this world and this life the best it can be.

Yes there is evil in the world, but also good. We should work to eliminate one and expand upon the othrr. Maybe we need to try and build a Heaven on Earth. What do various paganisms say about this if anything? Do we need an Othrrworld  or should we not be morally obligated to try and make this world the best it can be? Can we not make this world a Paradise or a Utopia?
