For over fifty years, the author has communicated with people from the next world. Guides and teachers from spirit have taught him what life is like in the spirit world, and through their teaching, he has gathered the knowledge contained in this book. Some of the spiritual teachings he has received from many different teachers, from both earth and spirit, include the following: There is no death. We create our own reality by the thoughts we think. We are always linked to the divine essence called God. We are infinite beings manifesting temporarily in this dimension. We create time to enable us to experience the life we have chosen for this incarnation. We are here on earth to bring the great power of love as it is in heaven. There is nothing but love and acceptance in the spirit world. Good and evil are value judgments based on what is acceptable or unacceptable to the observer. There is no judgment or punishment in the spirit world except that which is self-created. We have to live with who we are, and self-punishment will bring growth through experience. This book is not only about the spirit world. From these teachings we can have a hopeful frame of reference to aid in this life by removing the fears of loneliness and death. We are never totally alone in the next world, and there is no death.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

There is considerable evidence that human life began on another plane of consciousness. Mankind is a recent arrival on the earth, but evidence of other life forms show that the earth was here and inhabited for millions of years before mankind arrived. There is also evidence that we live many lives on this planet, and we are seeking self-fulfillment each time we come here.

Some children are born with a strongly developed character, and many children are born with abilities that they could not possibly have learned in the time they have been here. Many people have had out-of-body experiences and report that there is a light that seems to have the power to create All That Is. People have found they could have life experiences in their dreams without a physical body, and they had faculties with greater flexibility than the ones they have on the earth plane.

We apparently have an existence in other levels of consciousness. The dream state and other out-of-body experiences, when the body is asleep, are examples of this.

Some mystics declare that we begin life as a spark of light which has a creative power and which can take on any form we wish. This energy creates the human body and it is used by the human spirit to experience life in this dimension. This physical form that we have on the earth plane is unique to this dimension.

When we come here to the earth plane, we have chosen to do so. When we return to the next plane of existence, we naturally bring memories of this physical body with us for the purpose of recognition. There we meet other people who have also been in physical form with us at one time or another. Therefore, it is easier for us to be recognized by this familiar human form. If we incarnate again, we do not take this form but assume the form appropriate to the culture and environmental conditions into which we are being born.

As we progress on different planes and go on other missions or incarnations, as we call them, we will learn that each life is part of our whole being. Our whole being includes all the knowledge gained from experiences we have had in all the earlier missions. However, each being that we have assumed in other incarnations still exists in the spirit world. When we return to the spirit world, we go through many levels of experience and eventually reach the level where we will be able to meet these other facets of our total being.

There are many different missions that we take, one of them being our life here upon this plane now. As we are a composite being at all times, the facet that is the person projected on to the earth plane at this time appears to be unique and individual.

As we come to this planet, we come as an energy form. We may have been here before, we may not have. That was our choice, and we may choose to return as many times as we wish.

We sometimes have a mission we wish to fulfill. Sometimes we come because we wish to learn things about this plane. Everything that we have chosen, both on this side and on that other side, and the way we live this life, is of our own choosing.

We chose our path in the spirit world, and then came here with a mission to fulfill. It is as if we are soldiers coming to serve here. It is not like a war upon the earth plane, but it is a struggle between right and wrong, waged within our own soul. The winner of this struggle is always our inner self.

No matter what we choose upon this earth, it is always the right choice, because it is the right one for us. We have made that choice for a reason. We know the situation that we are born into beforehand. However, once we reach the earth plane, we are free to change, and we can make decisions here, even changes in the original plan or mission.
