It can't all be one continuous peak experience.
Well, we'll just have to see about disproving that. :) Love Bette
I'm with you
... On the other hand, the literature is rife with tales of Uncle Joe flapping back to say 'hello', Grandpa warning of an accident, or Pop telling where the money is hidden, Mom looking after the kids, etc.
Hi Montana, I'm watching Tom's interview on CMN right now and I think he does an excellent job in this interview of explaining that it all depends on the person's beliefs. So, if the larger consciousness system is going to be the most effective adopting the appearance of Uncle Joe or Grandpa or Pop, to facilitate the person's ability to actually receive the message, then that's what it will do. If the person is highly religious and the larger consciousness system can get through in the form of Jesus or Mary or Buddha or Yogananda, then that's what it will do. Alternatively, LCS might be more effective in a bodiless form, as intuition or one's own Higher Self.
It's all one thing anyway, so whatever form it uses to interface with you is just a different guise or shape or individuation of the one larger thing that exists.
But I will be seriously bummed if I won't get the chance to finish my reading! ;-(
Here's my advice. When the time comes, if you still have more you want to read, and if you still feel up for some more time on Earth, just tell anyone who asks "But I haven't finished my reading yet!"
This will make them decide to send you back.
(And yes, I realize that there may be some inconsistency in hoping that books have a place in the after life, especially as I adamantly hope that computers do not!
More advice. This is inspired by Home with God by Neale Donald Walsch. First imagine the ideal afterlife, Heaven if you will. Maybe for you there are books but no computers there. Picture it vivdly, with as much detail as possible.
Next convince yourself that you are worthy of being admitted to this Utopia after you die.
That's pretty much all you need to do to ensure it's there waiting for you.
At least, that's the way I see it :)
