    What and where is Heaven?

    The Great Nazarene Teacher said that the kingdom of heaven is within you.

    From my limited understanding, Heaven is a spiritual condition -- one of wholeness or togetherness with God. It is also spiritual wakefulness. When the consciousness of spirit (our true selves) is active, bodily death no longer is an end to consciousness. This is the everlasting life of which Christianity's founder spoke.

    It also seems, from my own exegetical research, that the Garden of Eden was the Garden of Heaven -- purely and only a spiritual place. Such a "place" has no location in space and time, but is superior to all physicality.

    Heaven is also a place of perfection where generosity is not the opposite of selfishness, where confidence is not the opposite of doubt, where wisdom is not the opposite of stupidity and compassion is not the opposite of indifference. All of these negative traits do not exist there.

    Heaven is bliss grounded in the most perfect reality -- that of creation, where spirit, inspiration and forgiveness originate.

    if you are looking for a real scriptural answer,
    Gen 1:6-10

    6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters." 7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

    9 Then God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

    So heaven is all of the space from and including the surface of the earth and seas in all directions until we reach the waters above and below  (wherever they may be)
