1. a place regarded in various religions as the abode of God (or the gods) and the angels, and of the good after death, often traditionally depicted as being above the sky.
the sky, especially perceived as a vault in which the sun, moon, stars, and planets are situated.
As you see…there are two definitions for Heaven. Those that believe in the Christian God fully believe there is a Heaven (and Hell) that they will go to when they die. The thing is though, to me, a Pagan, we all believe in a Heaven type place, we just call it something different. Wiccans call it the Summerland. Here is a link explaining it.
Some people do not believe that we go anywhere and then there are those that believe we are reincarnated until we learn all there is to learn and also to be a better person than we were in the previous life. It is a nice thing to believe in. To believe we go to a place that is beautiful to live out eternity and that is ok for some people. I believe in reincarnation and then once we have learned everything/fixed mistakes/etc, then we shall go to the Summerland.
Either way, Heaven or Summerland, are both better to believe in then thinking we just get buried in the ground and rot away or get cremated and have our ashes scattered to the wind and that’s it.
