I just finished reading Carolyn North's piece on life-after-death. While researching for her book, "The Experience of a Life Time: Living Fully, Dying Consciously" she came across a number of channeled accounts about the after-life, from different countries and decades apart, with startlingly similar information. She combined the different reports into an imagined chat between her and these emissaries from the other side. Among her informers were TE Lawrence (known as Lawrence of Arabia) and Arthur Conan Doyle (author of the Sherlock Holmes series). It is a fascinating read which dovetails with several other descriptions of the after-life including the movie "What Dreams May Come" featuring Robin Williams and James Redfield's book, "The Tenth Insight." At the same time, it allows for a Tibetan or Buddhist vision of death. It is a sobering idea to think we have come into this world to accomplish certain things that will have an impact not only in this life but in the next. Check it out: Life Post-Mortem.
