I’ve always been interested in spiritual things. After the Nov. conference in AZ, I ordered some books based on the speakers I enjoyed most.
I must recommend Only Love is Real by Brian Weiss, MD. This one is for the romantics and also those who just love good stories about love
winning in spite of the trials of life, in spite of death in fact. Another good one of that nature is The Proposing Tree by James Twyman.
For the science-oriented, I recommend The Isaiah Effect or other books by Gregg Braden. They are very interesting and backed with research.
For all who wonder about loved ones who have crossed over (this is how new-agers define death),
I have to recommend “Parting Notes - A Connection with the Afterlife” by April Crawford. This is a book of letters describing the experience
of death by those who have already crossed over — written by means of the volunteered hand of psychic medium April.
It is quite fascinating to understand the viewpoint of death in this way. Each of the people in this book had a different experience.
They all lived and died in different ways, so accordingly, they had a different experience after they crossed. Everyone had a moment
after they died where they had to discover that they were actually dead. Their consciousness still felt the same.
I have been exposed to the new age viewpoint for a short while… since I was brought up under the Christian viewpoint and researched it
thoroughly for many years on my own as a teenager and young adult, it wasn’t easy to consider other views for a while, even though
I haven’t been involved in a church anymore since about 10 years ago.
So it is completely understandable to me if most people would dismiss this book of letters as just strange fiction. I would not have given it a chance years ago. To those raised as Christian, it would be perceived as a false religion.
Suppose reincarnation were true and we are all god(s). We judge our own lives after we die and make choices as to how to create a balance for the poorer choices we made in the life we just lived. The desire to remedy our wrongs is so strong that we need to come back into a new physical body and live another life to do it. Before we are born, we script certain choices and events into our lives… that is the best we can do knowing that we are going to forget that we even had previous lives and a great consciousness in-between. We are eternal. Religions are a way of trying to understand what we have forgotten. Atheism is denying there is a god which is very close to knowing that you are god yourself. You create it all, you balance it all. What happens if earth is destroyed and we cannot reincarnate? Then those who feel a huge burden to right their wrongs will be very troubled until the situation can be remedied so that they can reincarnate to have a chance to learn and do better.
It still isn’t a comfortable type of thought, because how do you know what kind of lives you will have in the future?
Even if you are living a decent life now, who knows? But yet, since everyone keeps evolving, you will have to keep interacting with some of
the same folks until all debts are equalled out and life is peaceful. I would say this is interesting, but not necessarily comforting.
There is so much yet that I don’t understand.
