I’ve just watched your video interview on “Jesus, the Afterlife and Quantum Physics”, and have to say what a pleasure it was to listen to it and see your enthusiasm for the whole topic. Most of it reinforced what I’ve already learnt over the years, although a couple of things you mentioned caused me to see a different angle on some ideas. I can remember saying to people, those who were receptive, that I felt that ultimately Religion and Science would meet in the field of quantum physics, and this was in (and since) 2004. It’s great to see that this is looking more and more the way things are moving. I do, however, wish I’d had some kind of personal experience of the great First Cause, God, or whatever one calls Him/Her/It, indeed some first-hand evidence of the afterlife I’ve read about and believed in for four-plus decades. Meanwhile, I persist with the vicarious evidential matter – the experiences that other people have had – and I will carry on doing so, and the more so since the person I loved most in this world passed to spirit in August of this year. Roberta, I look forward to reading more of your blogs, listening to more of your podcasts, and perhaps watching more of your video interviews. Thank you for the contribution you make to my understanding of the nature of reality. Brian 🙂
It’s so good to see you here, dear Brian. I’m sending you a big hug!!
I heard your interview on coast to coast am , i felt to write you a note. Because ive enjoyed my life and im still enjoying the life i live , but for some reason i dont want to come back after i pass. is there some how some way that i dont have to come back and just meet up my famiyl in Heaven and stay with ? I get a little depress at times when listen experts like you in this topic and think that when i leave I MUST RETURN , WHY? .
Hello Patrick! I know this is going to be difficult for you to believe, but the evidence is very strong that people overwhelmingly want to come back for additional lifetimes until they have achieved sufficient spiritual growth that they can make further progress at a reasonable pace in the afterlife levels. They don’t come back immediately – they enjoy plenty of down time with their families (in a place without time, this might be quite awhile in earth-years). But the urge to grow spiritually is a hunger like no other! Combine the cravings of a starving man with all the hunger for money and sexual hunger and every other human need that you can imagine, and you still won’t come close to the craving for spiritual growth that the dead describe to us. Even here, people feel it, but there are so many distractions that it’s not at all the kind of ache here that it is there. You won’t be forced, dear friend, but you won’t need to be forced – you will want it, too!
The best way to avoid this ache to return for further spiritual growth is to achieve a tremendous amount of spiritual growth while you’re here! And you can do that. Simply buy a red-letter Bible – New International Version is what I prefer – and read the red letters in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John until you know them by heart. Then live by them! When you have learned to love perfectly and forgive completely, you will have achieved an A-plus in this lifetime, and it’s not too late if you will begin today. Good luck, dear Patrick!
