Life:What’s it all About?

      Life:What’s it all about?

         Is there life after Death?

I suppose most of us have wondered what life is all about, is this all there is, is there life after death? Do we reincarnate or do we go to heaven and float around on a cloud all day.

I doubt there is a person alive who hasn’t asked those questions sometime in their lives.

The quest began for me at the ripe young age of 38, I had worked hard all my life,had three kids, a wife, and a house with a pool ,everything I owned was paid for, I was living the life of Riley.

One morning I woke up and thought, “Wow, that was easy, there must be more to life than this.” Those thoughts brought on a life long journey of discovery and insight. Within 3 years my life and beliefs had changed completely.

My marriage had been shaky for several years and as a result a divorce followed. I began to question why these things were happening to me, I wasn’t perfect but knew I was a pretty decent person with good values and common sense, there had to be more to it than it was just God’s will, or the luck of the draw.
I grew up on a farm and always thought it was an idealistic setting.However,because of  memories and “events” from my child hood and before, of things I couldn’t explain, I had always had a passing interest in the supernatural and things of an esoteric nature. Since organized religion wasn’t giving me the answers I needed , I began to turn else where.

Because of a work related injury, I had plenty of time to research the subject and began reading everything I could find on metaphysics. After a short time I began to understand how reincarnation was possible, it fit into what I was sensing and feeling. I just knew that after death we had to go some where and do something other than ride around on a cloud all day, (how boring is that?) If there was nothing after death,why would people go to college and embark on other learning adventures when they are well into old age, what would be the point?
Because I had sensed and seen objects and beings from other planets, I subconsciously “knew” there had to be life some where besides planet earth. It just didn’t make sense that earth was “all there is”.
The resulting “quest” has thus far taken me to the four corners of the earth, from Egypt to Australia and many lands in between. What I have learned has not only strengthened my belief in life after death and the existence of other life forms, but it also has strengthened my belief in many of organized religions philosophies and the reasoning behind them.
Not that I’m in a class with them, but many of the world’s great teachers and prophets such as Jesus followed the same path, and were taught many of the “secrets” of the universe. We should look to what they taught for salvation and not to the individual them self, everyone of us can do as they did.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist.

There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God!

This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception.

Available in both hard copy and ebook format.
