Death: The Beginning of Life is a book about dying—old beliefs, old attitudes, old yous. Parts of my ego died while writing this book. And, parts of your ego may die while reading It.”
Topics include: The Inner Journey, Depth of Experience, Consciousness, Psychopathic Society, Shadow, The Perilous Journey, The Battle, Saving the World, Solitude, Slowing Down, On Dying and The Daffodil.
Readers expressed that the book made them think deeply about their lives and their world. They felt moved—riding on a deep river of consciousness toward the meaning of life. One man told me that it was the most insightful book he has ever read.
The following are some excerpts from the book:
“Now these meditators are onto greater enlightenment and gas-saving ecological-mindedness, national flying (levitation) competitions. Just think, airlines will become obsolete if this catches on.”
“This woman had a beautiful image in a dream that went along with her change in consciousness: ‘I am walking to a place where people are building onto an already large older home. A new road is being put in to the house. The dirt is very dark, black, and soft. I am almost afraid of falling in. Will the earth hold my weight? I can feel the earth breathing.’”
“Happiness is not the goal of the Self, consciousness is.”
“Naturally, there are dramatic emotional releases . . . but somehow the core of the person remains untouched.”
“Even given an informed choice between good and evil, certain people will choose the evil path.”
“Parts of your personality are forced to die so that other parts can be born.”
