When I come,nobody knows who I am or where I came from.
When I go,nobody knows who I was or where I will go.
This book contains knowledge from the highest spiritual spheres.It gives answers to questionswhich are as old as mankind.
People die everyday, yet most of us are afraid of death. We are afraid and ask ourselves, “What will happen to me afterwards?”
Many say, “We don’t know what will happen. No one has ever returned from the beyond.” The Christian churches also do not have a satisfactory answer to this significant question of life.
The question of where we come from and where we are going is a mystery to the one who looks at existence between birth and death as the life.
What is explained in this book is no mystery, but the truth that many no longer know. Death is not a cutting off of our path through life, but the gate to its continuation on a different level of existence. It is the gate to a life that will be more light-filled, the more conscientiously a person has mastered the tasks of his life on earth.
Death is only another station on our soul’s journey to the perfect life.
Once we understand what life really is, then death will lose its horror. The reality of our life continues. We, ourselves, determine how.
The Christ-friends in Universelles Leben
What is life?
Is life – our life – only the span between the beginning and the end of our life on earth, between birth and death, those two inevitable events which are usually accompanied by difficulties and often with pain for those concerned? Is there really nothing more to say about life other than that a human being is begotten, develops in the womb until he is born, lives a few decades, dies, is buried and disintegrates into material components? Is the soul merely a product of the physical body that perishes together with the body? Is the organism determined solely by the hereditary factors of the parents and forefathers, a body that develops and builds up according to the laws of heredity?
Many people are convinced of this, others have more or less clear conceptions about the continuing existence of man or of a part of him, his soul. They believe that the deceased rests until his resurrection, and so they have carved on gravestones, “Rest in peace.” They think that the material body can resurrect – despite its obvious disintegration.
Those who ask the Christian churches about life and death learn that the churches are unable to make conclusive statements about what comes after death, because the Bible does not contain well-founded statements concerning this subject. Many people who are tied to the church fear that after death they might suffer in hell or that they will be cast into eternal damnation after the Last Judgment.
The modern, informed person of the 20th century prefers to avoid the subject of “death.” He believes that what he can experience with his five senses and grasp with his intellect is the real and what exists. He acknowledges his physical existence and experiences that he is interwoven in the processes of life which can be perceived externally. The questions as to where he came from, where he will go and the purpose and reason for his fate remain a mystery to him; but what he experiences externally seems to him concretely tangible as his life. Based on this awareness, which is characterized by a material point of view, he is, of course, frightened to face an end to life, his death, because he thinks that death will extinguish his existence.
So the person loves this life which indeed offers, apart from adversities, many pleasant and attractive things. He wants to live a long life and does not want to see others die either. Friends and relatives often want to hold on to someone already marked by death.
Fear and ignorance have placed a taboo on dying and death. It was only a few years ago that this attitude began to change, when several physicians began to stay with the dying instead of leaving them alone with their fate when further medical treatment seemed futile.
Experiences at the threshold of death have given cause for reflection and to revise one’s thinking. They have encouraged people to broaden a horizon of knowledge that has become narrow concerning life. A great number of people sense or already believe in the truth of those philosophies of life that are advocated by people in countries where the influence of materialism is less, where people see death as a station along the way in a natural order of life. These people believe that the “deceased” – that is, the soul – goes on living after the death of its physical body. It is also widely known that the soul can go through several lives on earth in different human bodies at different times.
Simple folk wisdom affirms a continuing existence. When researchers on death publish their scientific observations, we read some things which are not at all new to us. Although theories of natural science and ecclesiastical dogma could drive out very ancient knowledge from our consciousness, they could in no way refute, much less change, the reality of these facts by denying them.
This book augments the basic experiences of mankind; it corrects many things and, in some aspects, goes far beyond what has been known until now, delving into the world on the other side of material existence, into the world of the spirit. The knowledge which we pass on here originates from there, from the Spirit. The basic truths of life were revealed at all times, and again today they are being directly revealed by the Spirit of God through the mouth of a prophet. We have merely put this knowledge from the divine source into our words.
“Vita mutatur, non tollitur”Life is not destroyed, but transformed
an old epitaph
Everything is energy and none of this energy is ever lost!
Life is a form of energy. Just as our scientists have not yet been able to clearly define where energy comes from and why and how it is generated, they cannot define life either. They can only describe it. This form of energy, life, is beyond the scope of scientific research, just as our soul is.
The soul is an essential part of the living being, “man.” Where was it before the human being was born? Where does it go when the body disintegrates into its components?
As a living organism, the material body is formed by the transformation of matter. After death, when life leaves the body, it disintegrates into its material components through transformation. But what happens to the “life”; what happens to the soul?
Despite the greatest scientific efforts, research, which is oriented only towards matter, cannot explain what is evident to everyone, namely life, which surrounds us a millionfold in the form of animals, plants and microbes. A caterpillar develops from the egg of a butterfly; later this caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon; it pupates and a new butterfly slips out of the cocoon. Life changes, but it is not lost!
