    I've not seen any proof for that yet, and who knows if I can come back to write about how I went there if I had gone.

    This question has a very simple answer, but it is often difficult to do.  The answer is simply to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

    Here are some verses that touch on the subject- I hope this helps

    Matthew 18:3
    And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

    Matthew 18:4
    Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    Matthew 19:14
    Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

    2 Corinthians 5:1
    [ Our Heavenly Dwelling ] Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands

    Philippians 3:20
    But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,

    Colossians 1:5
    the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel

    Romans 1:17
    For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."

    Ephesians 1:13
    And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,

    Acts 16:30-32
    He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"  They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household." Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. 3

    John 3:12
    I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?

    My Grandmother taught me that the key to enjoy the starcaise to heave is to follow the Golden Rule. Thus I often pause to think and reflect on what kind of human being I was today, yesterday, last week, last year. How do I want to be remembered when I leave this earth? Then I remember the things my family shared with me, for example:

    Do unto others as you want to be done unto you

    Be kind and loving not only to human kind, but to all creatures of the universe.

    Help those in need without expecting rewards.

    Be always prepare to meet with God, both physically and spiritually. The day to end our journey on earth will come and it is  often unnanounced.

    Then I think that in an effort to be prepared, I am also trying to be a good person, a good friend, brother, sister, relative, I am continuously striving to be the best that I can in good faith and the best of will.

    pbnj53 and AgingtoPerfection have answered this question correctly. In order to go to Heaven, you MUST trust in Christ ALONE for your salvation. It is the finished work of Jesus on the cross who died as the sacrifical Lamb for the sins of the whole world, that whosever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. You can not earn your way into Heaven. It is a free gift from God. To accept the free gift you need to trust in the Son.  1John5:11,12 , "And this is the testimony. God gives us eternal life and this life is in the Son. He who has the Son, has life. He who does not have the Son of God, does not have life."

    A quote from the Message:  Jesus said, unless a person submits to this original creation-the 'wind hovering over the water' creation, the invisible moving the visible, a baptism into a new life-it is not possible to enter God's kingdom.  When you look at  a new baby, it's just that: a body you can look at and touch.  But the person who takes shape within is formed by something you can't see or touch-the Spirit-and becomes a living Spirit.  So don't be so  surprised when I tell you that you have to be 'born from above'--out of this world, so to speak.
