The Soul Question: Where do we go from here? Part 3: Searching for Spiritual Unity

The Soul Question: Where do we go from here? Part 3: Searching for Spiritual Unity

Author: Sidney Harley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/10/2019

The Soul Question: Where do we go from here? is a four-part series which explains as simply as possible in words and illustrations aspects of nature which are outside man's experience. The most important of these is the spirit condition of man. Life after death is not conditional on religion. We have no need to seek eternal life; it is not an extra, something we can earn. We cannot buy it or change the nature of it by wealth. We already have life and we can never end it. Life is seamless, simply passing from one state of being to another. The soul, whether, it is within a physical or spirit body, is the core of who and what we are. Understanding and accepting this will provide the most important platform from which to view all life and administer to our own. All people should be aware of their true condition whilst still living within the physical, and all should possess a reasonable conception of what is to follow. Only when this knowledge and its acceptance spreads worldwide will it become possible for civilisation to reach the desired state of peaceful cohabitation. The Soul Question series makes for essential reading for those interested in spirituality, and will appeal to those seeking deeper meaning in life.

Paranormal Encounters on Britain's Roads Phantom Figures, UFOs and Missing Time

Paranormal Encounters on Britain's Roads Phantom Figures, UFOs and Missing Time

Author: Peter A. McCue Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/09/2019

In this detailed book, Dr Peter McCue reflects on the enormous range of paranormal phenomena to have been reported along Britain's roads, and examines the theory that certain areas seem to be hotspots for such occurrences, such as the A75 and B721 roads in southern Scotland, and the Blue Bell Hill area in Kent. He delves into the sightings of apparitional vehicles; encounters with `colliding apparitions'; `phantom hitch-hikers'; out-of-place big cats; phantom black dogs; UFOs; `missing time' (strange memory gaps); vehicle interferences (such as mysterious breakdowns); and incidents in which drivers and passengers seem to have been translocated in space or time. This thorough book debates the evidence and theories in a critical but open-minded way, and is a welcome addition to the genre.
