The Afterlife

Dual existence Agree: 4 divider Disagree: 0


Both Agreements and DisagreementsThe essence of a spirit can move from one place to another. The actual spirit itself does not move from place to place but exists in one place. It can have observations in several different places at one time.

AgreeIn out-of-body experiences from the living state, many of the problems are encountered, in terms of space, that will be met after death. And in such episodes, therefore, the true nature of time and space becomes more apparent. After death it does not take time to go through space...Space does not exist in terms of distance. This is illusion. There are barriers, but they are mental or psychic barriers.

Both Agreements and DisagreementsAll humans return to earth with the energies of both male and female within themselves. The form that one returns to earth in, in a reincarnation of male or female, generally indicates which energy will be the more dominant one within this lifetime.

AgreeMost of my subjects select the bodies of one gender over another 75 percent of the time. This pattern is true of all but the advanced souls, who maintain more of a balance in choosing to be men and women.

Agree...each person lives both male and female lives. As a rule, conscious memory of these is not retained. To prevent an overidentification of the individual with his present sex, within the male there resides an inner personification of femaleness. This personification of femaleness in the male is the true meaning of what Jung called the 'anima'...However, the women do not need to be reminded of their femaleness, but again, so that they do not overidentify with their present sex, there is what Jung called the 'animus,' or the hidden male within the woman.

AgreeReincarnational goals also vary greatly. I want to stress that reincarnation is a tool used by personalities. They each use it in their own way. Some enjoy female existences, or have greater fondness for male lives. While both must be encountered, there is a great range of choice and activity.

My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image to be servants of their human interests.
