clear to me as daylight that life and death are but phases of the same thing,
the reverse and obverse of the same coin. In fact tribulation and death seem
to me to present a phase far richer than happiness or life... Death is as necessary

of death leaves me in perfect peace, for I have a firm conviction that our spirit
is a being of indestructible nature; it works on from eternity to eternity,
it is like the sun, which though it seems to set to our mortal eyes, does not
really set, but shines on perpetually.
of approach to death can be a beautiful thing, a frame into which we can put
the work of art that is our life, our personal masterpiece.

nirvana or Happy Hunting Ground or the Garden of Paradise, the weight and authority

and that the quality of our continued existence in the afterlife depends on
the quality of our living here and now.

immortality is an inner certainty.
soul does not part with Nature when it leaves the earth-life but, rather, it
rises to a plane of Nature which is fuller, richer and sweeter in everyway than
the best of which the earth dwelling soul dreams. The dross of materiality burned

birth for the dead; therefore over the inevitable thou shouldst not grieve.
not this trivial self which remains, It is the higher self that is much more
aware of the understanding of what we have experienced... How sad it would be
to bring back this (small self) When we could bring back the best of our traits,

transition beyond life in physical form. It is told that as we cross into other
levels of being, what we have to offer is the result of the choices of action
we have taken throughout the time on earth. This is looked upon kindly by the
guardians, allowing us to see the effects of our choosing and how in certain
instances, we might have chosen better. It is without harsh judgement but simply
seeing clearly and with perception.

perhaps the most incredible common element in the accounts of near death experiences...is
the encounter with a very bright light... The love and warmth that emanates
from this Being to the dying person are utterly beyond words, and he feels completely
at ease and accepted in the presence of this Being...He is ineluctably drawn

there were a place for gracious dying, A high place with a distant view. Where
we could gather for a celebration of life and death and friendship, old and
