    I have heard and been told about heaven so many times. That there is heaven is not my question, my question is where is heaven, and where is the way to it. I'm most interested in having the answer to this question because it is a very important one to me and to those I will be talking about heaven to.

    Please let someone who has the answers to the above questions help out. I will be most grateful to be equipped with this very useful knowledge.

    Thanks for your response.

      Hi Osa, I can't tell you exactly where heaven is but this will show you the way to it.

      Heaven is a different dimension which you can find with one pointed concentration.
      According to the sage Patanjali the founder of yoga -it takes 7 breaths of one pointed concentration to get enlightened or enter the kingdom of god or heaven.
      Its your home -the very source from where you and everything comes from.
      one needs to die to enter heaven- don't worry there is really no such thing as death as your energy or soul or spirit lives on.  smile

      Focus between your eyebrows and think of a distant star-point of light.Keep looking at it -concentrating on it .With practice with every inhalation you will go very very fast towards  the point of light-race in this tunnel.When you exhale you will race away from the point of light.
      You will realize that this point of light is your source.
      There will be many distractions initially -with time they drop and lastly  you may have a song or tune playing in your mind.

      It is scary as you are racing with great speed up and down the tunnel.Then comes a time what is called as let go.- give your self up.You then race upto the point of light which becomes huge like the moon seen from close up- you implode into this light and the next thing you know is you are surrounded by this brilliant white light- which has no beginning and no end -endless- a state of pure and absolute bliss- Heaven-God-One smile

      My friend Lonnie died for about four or five hours.  Then, he came back to life.  His description about heaven is that it is all around us.  He was fully aware of what was going on here on earth with all of his friends.  He could see them, he was aware of our prayers.  He knew specifics.  He met people who he did not know on earth, but had known his family and brought back messages.

      He saw the new Jerusalem AgingToPerfection spoke of.

      Acording to Lonnie, who has been there, Heaven is all around us.  When we pray "your will be done on earth as in Heaven"  heaven is much closer than we think and we can experience part of it now.

    First of all it depends on what you interpret heaven to be.  Everyone seems to have a different idea of what heaven is.

    Some people think it is a place where a man with a big white beard sites and angels fly around. 

    Some think it is a place where virgins live

    Some think it is a place where man becomes animals again and live in peace

    Some think it is a place of just white light

    Some think it's another earth without war, pain, death or sin.

    It really depends on the environment and culture you are born into and how the concept of heaven has been presented to you. 

    I believe that the concept has been percieved as a form of hope, a journey that we could be going onto after death.  As no one has been back after spending a length of time in what we know as death to explain where they have been and what they experienced, we will all be suspended in a variety of concepts, iidology and myths.

    A good dose of folklores, stories, written ancient words and religeous writings and teachings all add to the mystery and questions.

    So everyone might give you an idea on what they think heaven is based on their location, upbringing, beliefs, perception and influnences.

    The best way I could answer this for myself at least is that no man can truly teach me love, I have to personally experience love which is deep within. 

    God is Love, Love is God, God abids in a place we call Heaven. Where Godly love lives there you will find heaven.

    Heaven is a place where Christians go when they die.  It is totally existent, but cannot be reached unless you but your faith in the Lord.  Then, when you die, your soul will ascend to heaven where you and other Christians will live for the rest of eternity in peace and paradise.  However, if you are not a Christian, your soul will descend to Hell where you will be tormented for the rest of eternity.  Which one do you choose?  Heaven or Hell?  I have already put my trust on the Lord and have received him in my heart.  Thus, when I die, I know that I will go to heaven to be with the Lord forever and ever.

    John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life"

      Thanks for your resposes. But the basic question as to where heaven is and the way to it have not really been answered.

      I'll continue my search. Thanks all the same.

      Well I asked my boyfriend once, what he believed heaven was and he said, that in heaven he would be on a lake fishing with his dog in peace. 

      I asked my best friend once and she said a place where everyone she loved would be but that this doesn't necessarily include me.

      Other hubbers say that heaven is within.

      others say that heaven is above.

      others say that heaven is where the 144000 chosen people of God will go into Gods Heavenly home and the rest will live in a heaven on Earth, or Paradise Earth.

      Other say there isn't a heaven that when you die, you die.
      Other believe it is where the spirit leaves the body and rejoins the spirit in unity.

      None of the scenarios includes me as part of their idea of Heaven.  So, I believe that Heaven is whatever you want Heaven to be because I believe that God will give you whatever makes you the happiest and whatever it happens to be for you, will be heaven a personal gift from God. 

      Like when Jesus told the child that he was preparing a room for him in heaven.  It does sound like Heaven is whatever you wish it to be but you have to believe.  I suppose if you don't wish for any heaven like heaven, then you wont get your wish. 

      So my idea of heaven is to live in peace on Earth where I can hang with the animals and run around naked if I want to.  Where the sun will be perfectly warm and the snow wont be cold but just as beautiful. 

      I will live on a house at the edge of a cliff near the ocean surrounded by gardens and trees and people will just come and go as they please and when I feel like I can fly off into God's House (the Heavens, Heaven) and see whatever planet I feel like seeing, collect stars because they are pretty, and tell some jokes to God.

      I can stop by and visit the people I loved when ever I feel them call, maybe hang out with my boyfriend and his dog fishing or see my best friend and her family.  Whether or not I am apart of their heaven is up to them, but they can be apart of mine.  You dig?

      I mean it wouldn't be liking to God if you were forced to live in a heaven that was a land of milk and honey if you don't like milk or honey now would it?

    Heaven is in your mind, and how you respond to external stimuli and internal thoughts.
    If you harbour love, you will be showered with it,
    If you nurture hate you shall be burnt by it,
    If you value relationship you will be protected by it
    and if you live in harmony with nature and man, you shall find peace
    .If you look outside... you shall never find it;
    but if you introspect; you will certainly discover it,
    May you be successful in your great quest.

    Heaven is all in the minds of people who fear the fact that their life comes to an end when they die. That or children's minds.

      Right, you really must be a monkey then.........Explain the empty tomb of Jesus Christ, then,witnessed by atheists as well as believers at that time, if you think there's no hereafter or "purpose to this life". God bless you.
      Something to think about when you run out of bananas....

    In Revelations, the Bible talks about the very end when the New Jerusulem (God's holy city)  will come down from God out of Heaven, where God will then rein and rule in all His glory, and where the ones who have received Him as Lord will be able to enter into His gates.  He will be visible and we will see Him as He is for mortality will have put on immortality..

    In the Old Testament, in Ezekiel, is a most descriptive vision of God's Heavenly abode, although it doesn't give the whereabouts.  It's another dimension, so who can say where it is other than where God dwells, lives and rules.  There is much activity going on and having someone even attempt to describe the glory of God amid all His heavenly dwellings and created Heavenly beings is probably not fathonable to mortal man's imgination or mind's eye.  The mere descriptions defy any picture we might attempt to explain in human terms cannot be done, unless the Holy Spirit Himself gives us a mind's eye view.

    When you read the Bible, you find the different stages which lead to the final destination.

    Currently, the Bible says that if we are saved through knowing Jesus Christ as our Saviour, when we die..."to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord."  Ibelieve this is Heaven, for this is where the Lord God lives, and we will be with Him forever.

    If you don't read the Bible, one can only speculate, when in reality, it's all written down in vivid technicolor to those who care to know the awesome power of the One who created us mere mortals and died for us so that we might live!.
