I’m not offended at all, nor do I regard your comments as an attack; they represent commonly held views of the human race at large.
Trying to keep an open mind reading your posts there. Yeah overall it sounds great but I just can't see how you could acquire any of this knowledge
at all. Nobody knows what's on the other side, there just no way of knowing anything about before and after life unless you look into the bible and
god theories which are all things created on earth by living people that like us, had no way of knowing before and after life.
Of course some people know what’s on the other side, it’s just that most people don’t want to look.
Mainstream religions tend to rely on texts laid down thousands of years ago, in obsolete language styles. Mainstream Science is perfectly geared up to
prove that there is no life after death, which they do frequently. Governments are very happy that you don’t get to find out what goes on, they want
your money, and they want you to be a wage slave.
One of the most open-minded scientists on this subject was Sir Oliver Lodge, inventor of the automobile spark-plug amongst other things. He lost his
son in the First World War, and it hurt him deeply. While he was alive he made strenuous efforts to find a way of communicating with his son Raymond,
and achieved that.
As a scientist, in the Afterlife, Spirit World, or Heaven (call it what you will), he wrote three books on life and death issues, which he channeled
through a partnership with Raymond Smith, who lives in Spain, near to Gibratar. These books are now out of print, but they were scientific statements
of life, and life after death.
As a young adult, I would have laughed at what I have written recently; ‘God’, ha ha, old man with a beard; when you are dead, you are dead and so
on. I understand that place, it was my place and it was comfortable. But, I had questions, and nobody could answer them. Is there a God; what is the
Universe contained in, is it like a big fish tank; what happens if the Sun goes out, and lots more besides.
We were nominally a Christian family, but not practicing. I got sent to Sunday school, so that Mum & Dad got a couple of hours in bed. Sunday school
was ‘dead’; it was ‘Simon says stick your hands in the air’ stuff. They couldn’t answer questions, and just said things like Jesus tells us
that…………”. Well, with all due respect, he didn’t speak to me.
In my mid-twenties I injured my back, and short of an operation, nobody could sort it out, until a co-worker told me he could heal it naturally, by
placing his hands on my back. ‘Oh Yeah’, I thought. But it’s any port in a storm, so he came round to my house on several evenings, when Mum and
Dad were there; and do you know what, he was as good as his word, he fixed it!!
Now that got my attention, and one evening he sat down with me and Mum, (I’m an only child) and said to her that she miscarried a female child. I
waited for her to say ‘no’, but she didn’t; she just looked at me and said, “Don’t tell your Father”! Well, how did he know? That’s
about the time I started to investigate things about death and the spirit world, and at every stage I have had proof of what was said being true.
I won’t accept rubbish though. I had two uncles who lived near a river. A medium said “I’m getting a man who lived near a river, he’s an
uncle”. Great, I could test him out, so I asked him if he lived in an apartment or house. “A house” came the reply, and I then knew which one,
but I hadn’t finished yet. I asked if the uncle had a garden and he replied “Yes”. Getting warmer; did he have any flower beds? “Yes he did,
and one bed full of roses”. Getting hotter; so I asked what shape that bed was, “In the shape of a star, and immaculately presented”. Bingo,
he’d got it!!
Then came the next part where he gave me some very personal information, which not another person knew about, and that was my first real proof that
the mind/soul/spirit complex survives death in another dimension. Over the years I’ve had stacks of proof, spoken to five relatives who are
‘dead’ and communicate with my own spirit guides whenever I wish.
A scientist wouldn’t believe me, a priest would want me to confess, a doctor would certify me, and most other people wouldn’t believe me. What I
have written here is fairly elementary stuff, but having a peek through the hole in the wall which separates the 3rd dimensional world in which we
live, with the multi-dimensional one on the other side, is feasible. It goes on every day, right round the world; it’s nothing remarkable; very
normal and not a bit unusual.
Incidentally, I’m not trying to convince you of anything. We are all free to think what we wish, thank God for that; but you said that it is
impossible to see what goes on in the afterlife, except when you are dead. I must respectfully differ with you, because it is possible, if you have
the motive, and want to go to the trouble of finding out how.
