Dealing with our Illusions of Separation ... in 3D


"Hear oh ye Isreal (Hopeful believers), the Lord thy God is One in all things"
"Is it not written in your Law, and I have said, 'you are gods'?" - John 10:34

Now HERE is some Practical Application for you to apply to your Life situations.

If we never experienced chaos, opposition, pain, sorrow or loss of loved ones, how would we ever learn to more deeply cherish and understand our love of self, family, community and our deep caring for the life around us? 

If we never experienced the contrasts of physical life on earth, how would we ever become aware of Who We Really Are; which is Divinity Expressing and Becoming!


The fived people you meet in Heaven

by Mitch Albom

(a Novel)


"All endings are also beginnings. 

We just don't know it at the time"

This is a light and lively novel to get you thinking in some new ways.


Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides
at a seaside amusement\ park. As the park has changed over the years—from the Loop-the-Loop to the Pipeline Plunge—so, too, has Eddie changed, from optimistic youth to embittered old age. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.

Then, on his 83rd birthday, Eddie dies in a tragic accident, trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. With his final breath, he feels two small hands in his—and then nothing. He awakens in the afterlife, where
he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden, but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people who were in it. These people may have been loved ones or distant strangers. Yet each of them changed your path forever.

One by one, Eddie's five people illuminate the unseen connections of his earthly life. As the story builds to its stunning conclusion, Eddie desperately seeks redemption in the still-unknown last act of his life: Was it a Heroic success or a devastating failure? The answer, which comes from the most unlikely of sources,is as inspirational as a glimpse of heaven itself. In The Five People You Mct'l in I Iriii'i-ii, Mitch Albom gives us an astoundingly original story that will change everything you've ever thought about the afterlife—and the meaning of our lives • here on earth. With a timeless tale, appealing to all, this is a book that readers of fine fiction, and those who loved Tuesdays with Morrie, will treasure.


NOTE: I  found this book on Martine's book shelf 10 months after her passing.  I believe that she read it before she "went" and found it useful!  You may, too.

Why would God. Love, Spirit, Creation or Creator

even allow death?

A death in the family gives us (both sides of the veil) a better appreciation for who we all are, or have been and the love that we feel and/or have felt.  It is thus meant to help us open our hearts.  

I have found that "death" of my beloved has been a heart opening,  (inner) eye opening and mind opening experience.  And I believe this experience is possible for all of us who survive "death" (and we all do, on both sides of the veil), whether that death seemingly comes through wars, sickness, "accident" or whatever.  How you live your life and how you perceive it is all in your frame of mind.

Just because my wife died does not mean that my life died!  And she isn't really dead, she just moved to a different vibrational realm, from our physical world, into the worlds of mind, emotions and expanded love, what many call spirituality ... and science calls a quantum existence.

So the one on either side of "the veil" may now find a new perspective - and more life to live!  

Death, then, exists so that we might renew ourselves and in that process find everlasting LIFE!

 Can't Wait to Get to Heaven

by Fanny Flagg

(another Novel)

Combining southern warmth with unabashed emotion and side-split­ting hilarity, Fannie Flagg takes readers back to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where the most unlikely and surprising experiences of the high-spirited Elner Shimfissle inspire a town to ponder the age-old question: "What is life all about, anyway?"


It's the strangest thing. One minute Elner is up in her tree, picking figs, and the next thing she knows she is off on an adventure she never dreamed of, running into people she never in a million years expected to meet. Meanwhile, back in Elmwood Springs, Elner's high-strung niece Norma faints and winds up in bed with a cold cloth on her head; Elner's neighbor Verbena rushes immediately to the Bible; her truck driver friend, Luther Griggs, runs his eighteen-wheeler into a ditch-and the entire town is thrown for a loop.


In this comedy-mystery, those near and dear to Elner discover something wonderful—and so will Fannie Flagg's lucky readers.

"A warm, wise and witty novel . . . straight from the heartland and straight from the heart . . . [Fannie Flagg's] insights into people never fail to remind us of those we know—and of ourselves." - Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Heaven includes recipes .. . along with laughs....Elner is a delight. And if her vision of heaven is true, you, too, may feel that you can't wait to get there." - USA Today


"The characters are endearing, the story is engaging. . .. A comforting and sometimes thought-provoking read." - Fort Worth\ Star-Telegram

"Funny and utterly charming ... a feel-good testament to the simple joys of life." - The Miami Herald

Signs of Your Loved Ones

by Sue Broome

How to become attuned to and recognize the signs from your loved ones that they still exist

Sue Broome
The signs are many - if you believe in Everlasting Life.
Many of us have experienced the loss of a loved one, maybe even the loss of many loved ones.  When we have the experience of people, especially loved ones, who have passed away, we may start looking for signs of their presence right away.  This book will help you recognize signs you may already be seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting or just plain feeling.  Yes, you may start to notice the signs from your deceased loved ones right away after they have passed; or even months down the road.


There are many signs you may start to realize that are or were from your Loved Ones, things that have been happening or you have noticed for a long time.  Once you start writing down what these "incidences" are like, more things will happen.   Even if it's a glimmer of something, a dream, some music or words that remind you of your loved one, write it down. Then add some notes about what else is happening during the day or night.  It is likely that the more you write, the more you can piece things together.

"A beautiful, incredible, dream world."  Yet, "... this place I found myself in was completely real."



Page 41 - He received messages without words:   "I had to translate them into earthly terms"

Page 49 - "For a person like me who had spent his whole life working hard to accumulate knowledge and understanding the old-fashioned way, discovery of this more advanced level of learning was enough to give me food for thought for ages to come ..."

Background: Because Eben was given up for adoption at an early age, he had never met his biological
family (his parents did get married later and raised a family). Interestingly, during this time in his life,  Eben was trying to find and reconnect with his birth family. Then, after this traumatic event of being in
a coma for 7 days, his sister sent him a picture of his deceased sister who had died several years previous to this time in his life. He immediately recognized her as The Girl with him on the butterfly wing!


A Personal Note from the Webmaster:
Just short of two weeks after my wife, Martine, had made her transition into her next grandest adventure (30 January 2013) , I was lead to this book (12 Feb 2013) for my further understanding.
I hope that it helps to open your eyes, to the power and pote
ntial of our greater spiritual senses and realities, too!


"Death is the biggest mystery of life. Unlocking that mystery unlocks everything."

Home with GOD , in an Everlasting Life that Never Ends!

by Neale Donald Walsch

Love never dies!
As Promised: Light, Life and Love go on Forever!

This Book, "has given me some wonderful  spiritual insights and deeper understandings

and awarenesses that have brought me comfort, that I had hoped to bring to many others - especially to people who are dealing with the death of a loved one, or those who themselves  are approaching death." ... page 286


A Personal Note:

 I lead a discussion class based on this book, at the local college, in the spring of 2012 and summer of 2014, thinking it would be good for many of the Seniors in our community.  Then, in the fall my wife became sick and went to the hospital.  After her body expired and returned to the earth from whence it came, I realized that This book and this class was for me!  And, it just might be for you. - Rev. John M. Kohlenberger



Life helps us prosper and grow in so many ways ... if we would only open our eyes, ears and minds.

All channeled material, from P'taah through Jani King

“As you go about your daily life, you employ the skills you have acquired since childhood to make life work for you, to survive and hopefully be successful in your endeavors.

For most of you this can be more or less of a struggle. Often, just when you think you are winning and the pieces of your life are working, it seems that the universe pulls the rug out from under you and you are once more left floundering.

The truth is that everything is always changing. No matter what, you will always have challenges to meet and what seem to be negative situations to resolve. There will be times when you have to deal with grief and loneliness. There may be times when you feel like an utter failure, when you wonder if life is really worth living.

Our desire for you is that you learn to dance on the moving rug called Life; not only to dance, but to dance with consummate skill, elegance, passion and grace.  Our desire for you is that you become more and more of who you truly are, that you stop struggling and fill your life with joy and laughter and play.”

The Afterlife of Billy Fingers
How my brother proved to me, there's life after death

Billy's ongoing after-death communications take his sister on an unprecedented journey­ into the bliss and wonder of life beyond death. Billy's profound, detailed description­ of the mystical realms he traverses, the Beings of Light that await him, and the wisdom he receives take the reader beyond the near-death experience. Billy is, indeed, as Dr. Raymond Moody points out in his foreword, explaining the phenomenon we've known about since ancient times: an afterworld walker.

To quote Billy: "If I could give you a gift it would be to find the glory inside yourself, beyond the roles and the drama, so you can dance of the game of life with a little more rhythm, a little more abandon, a little more shaking-those-hips."

"Let Billy Fingers take you on a journey to the world which awaits you when you leave this earthly shell. The time has come to familiarize yourself with the amazing world of Spirit and Billy is your perfect guide."— JAMES VAN PRAAGH,

author of Talking to Heaven and Ghosts Among Us
