FROM THE FOREWORD
This work was not planned or foreseen. It followed no outline in its writing.
It was at the invitation to write an article for an online Christian magazine that its seed was initially planted.
But the morning after the essay’s completion there remained a push of energy, an insistence of inspiration that hinted there was more. Eight chapters followed.
This happens in the world of writing, and likely in every art: where a line leads to a volume of poetry – a series of steps to a sparkling work of dance – or four repeated notes, as in Beethoven’s Fifth symphonic work, to a wonder.
While this book isn’t a symphony or volume of poetry, it has poetry in it and employs, it is hoped, the musical cadence and power of words: It uses art to challenge widely accepted teachings on Eternity that I believe are, and have been for centuries, taught in error.
The doctrine of eternal punishment for an erring soul – for a fallen divine Child – being the central one; the unfairness of One-and-Done theology being another. And that the balancing fairness of reincarnation is not antithetic with Christianity.
FROM THE BOOK
'It will take eternity to understand Eternal Mind, and even Heaven will not be a place of stagnation. There will be deeper schools of consciousness to attend, soul-expanding celestial music to absorb, higher and more beautiful states of Being to be realized.'
'In the Light of Omniscience, what a hurtful thing would be the gift of free will from God’s Heart to us, if in its giving eternal suffering was for many souls foreordained.'
'Truly there must be rents in the fabric of space and time – portals of Grace into other spiritual dimensions – which exist as a frequency of Love that is all about us,
unseen but there... '
' ... and ultimately we will all get there, to our present destination, back to our Home ‒ to our brilliant Eternity.'
"A life of thoughtful kindness will ensure a spirit-consciousness that soars at life's end."
