One of the criminals who were hanged there was saying, “ Save Yourself and us!” The other was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.” – Jesus’s Crucifixion, from the Gospel of Luke (LK...

Peeking Behind the Curtain

In the beginning, God created the universe. When the earth was as yet unformed and desolate, with the surface of the ocean depths shrouded in darkness, and while the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters, God said, “Let there be light!” So there was light. – (Gen 1:1-3) Ascribed to...

Life is Consciousness

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 28, 2019 • 24 Comments

The worst thing about the mainstream scientific gatekeepers’ insistence that all scientific inquiry must be based in materialism is the fact that since even matter is not solid, such a dogma makes it impossible for scientists to seek real answers to our most important questions. These central questions will vary depending on the viewpoint of... Read More

We Need Fresh Ways to Study Reality

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 07, 2019 • 34 Comments

 Perhaps my wanting to study reality seems to you both naïve and quixotic. I have never taken a course in advanced math or physics. Instead, over half a century I have read broadly and with an obsessive purpose. Afterlife communications, quantum mechanics, cosmology, biology, consciousness research, and even the Bible’s Gospels: whatever has seemed pertinent... Read More

Where Is Up?

It is hard for us to understand how there could be an afterlife that is full of all the people who ever have lived on earth. After all, we can’t see it. We can’t even really imagine where it is. And until we are confident about how the afterlife physically fits with what we know,... Read More

This universe exists to give us a place where we can begin to grow spiritually. It may serve other purposes too, but I haven’t seen good ideas about that; and it is clear now that this material universe is key to the process of helping us all to embark upon an eternity of ever more... Read More

Life in the Afterlife

We enter these lifetimes on earth to experience negativity and learn how to rise above it so we can more effectively grow spiritually. Fear is the most negative emotion, so at our stage of development, growing spiritually means raising our personal consciousness vibrations away from fear and toward more perfect love. Since the base fear... Read More

What’s a Heaven For?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 28, 2019 • 72 Comments

Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for? (from the poem “Andrea del Sarto” in Men and Women by Robert Browning, 1855) We have so much good evidence of what happens at and after death that it’s tragic that so few people are at all familiar with it. We... Read More

Explaining Death to a Child

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 07, 2019 • 32 Comments

When I first understood that death is a minor transition in someone’s eternal life, I stopped thinking much about the prevailing view of death as something negative. My foremost failing has become the fact that my first thought now on hearing about a death is actually happiness for the decedent. What else can you expect... Read More

When Our Faith Betrays Us

Posted by Roberta Grimes • August 10, 2019 • 31 Comments

Jesus has some wonderfully positive things to say about faith! He sees it as the engine that empowers our minds. For example, when His disciples have trouble driving out a possessing spirit, they ask Him why they are unable to do it. And He says, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I... Read More
