Age-old African beliefs about a body that is not the physical body; an ancient Mesopotamian epic with a hidden message about life and death; old Tibetan and Chinese writings on the importance of nothingness; tales of those who have come back from a death-like experience after a heart attack or accident. These, along with what the major faiths tell us about an existence after death, are the focus of this book. The author's search in often unexpected places provides insights into the nature of consciousness after death, the structure of our being, the meaning of time and space and the inevitability of suffering as well as of goodness. Through this book we will be better equipped to come to terms with the deaths of those dear to us, and also with our own death.
