Your Eternal Self -- good info. re. life and death

Very interesting site: Much to explore here for anyone interested in life/death/afterlife. Unlike most books, the author, Dr. R. Craig Hogan, has given permission for all of his book to be copied and distributed to anyone who wants it. Chapter One is in full on his site...and he gives much source material for each chapter that you can link to. You can click on each chapter link for this material and then explore further on the additional links given within. Lots to read for the curious-minded... A good Keeper and Pass-along to anyone who has been grieving for a loved one who has passed on.

Here is a review of the book from
Since research scientists began to delve into the nature of the mind and the afterlife in the last quarter of the twentieth century, humankind has made remarkable discoveries that have left researchers in wonder and awe. Your Eternal Self contains descriptions of the results of the thousands of studies that have pointed unmistakably to the finding that we are eternal beings having a physical experience. Death is an illusion. Even hard-nosed skeptics described in the book have changed their viewpoints in light of the evidence. Your Eternal Self describes carefully controlled, scientific research done by biologists, physicists, neuroscientists, physicians, psychologists, Nobel laureates, and other renowned scientists showing that the mind is outside of the brain, people see and know things they couldn't know if the mind were in the brain, the afterlife is as real as this life, people's minds are united, and our consciousness actually changes the environment in which we live. The book cites 330 sources from many prestigious scientific, psychological, and medical journals, but distills the essence of the research without technical detail, bringing it down to practical, daily life. It is easy reading and full of fascinating anecdotes and explanations. Your Eternal Self ends by describing what our purpose seems to be in life, what true spirituality is, how people can grow spiritually to change themselves so they have love and bliss in their lives, how they can provide that loving legacy for their children and children's children, and what the research has shown about the world of the afterlife.
