"When you die and depart this world you will
begin a new life in a place like the one in which you now live, surrounded by
people exactly like yourself. This this is the simple fact
and the result of an evolutionary process which started at the beginning of
time and will end only when you have completed a journey of going from one
place to another, each designed by yourself; no one to shift the blame or give
thanks to; not to your parents, not society, not God, only yourself; and you
have total control over the outcome. This realization is the greatest
opportunity you will ever have. It is your chance at true happiness. If you
can gain an understanding of this then Spiritualism has done its job."
"If anyone is unacquainted with Spiritualist philosophy, they could surely do no better than begin with this book" Graham Jennings, Two Worlds magazine.
