I hope these lessons will be a next step along your spiritual journey, which really is a journey without end. This is merely a way station for you to pause and gather some new information to enhance what you already know along your own unique spiritual path your Soul Path. When you are ready to remember what you forgot when you came into this world, all of this will make perfect sense to you. But do not stop here for long, continue to seek Wisdom throughout your life on earth for you will have many teachers, and many students along the way. You are the butterfly emerging from her cocoon and spreading her wings, the lotus blossom arising from the swamp and opening its face to God. You are awakening from a deep sleep. Keep an open mind, suspend judgment, listen to your heart, and get out of your own way! You were guided to this page, there is a reason for you to be here now, perhaps a lesson you need to learn for your spiritual growth.
If it hasn't happened yet, sometime in your life you will be faced with your own immortality and question everything you ever believed to be true. Many of the people who come across my web site are those whose lives have been torn apart by death or other great loss, and they don't know how to cope. Some are suicidal. Others are actively seeking answers to their existential questions, Who Am I? Why Am I Here? Some say their religion has failed them. Many are realizing the world isn't what they've been told it is and we're not who they told us we are supposed to be. Some are scientific-minded and are trying to figure out how life after death can be proven, how to bridge the gap between Science and Spirit. Some as young as junior high schoolers, are already writing papers about near death experiences and attitudes about death; spiritual seekers and college students are writing research papers and books to increase our knowledge about this important event in each of our lives. You come to this place not by chance from all over the planet seeking answers to the same questions. We are all seeking to know the Source of our Being, our Purpose in Life, the Meaning of Life, is there Life After Life. That is our Soul Path to Know Thyself. How each of us does that manifests in how we live our human life.
There is the potential to change societal attitudes toward death, so that fear of death/of ceasing to exist doesn't rule our lives, emanating from the energy of near-death experiencers. I'm just one, but millions of people around the world are having similar experiences in which they find themselves existing in other dimensions, similarly but differently-- in environments filled with unconditional love and acceptance, where we see our loved ones again and feel so loved by God, it is nearly... no, it is overwhelming. Could all 10 million of us just be nuts or is something important happening to human consciousness? Are we just now realizing what all religions have been trying to tell us all along because more people are talking about having the same experiences written about a few people who had near-death experiences and other spiritual experiences 2,000, 5,000 or 10,000 years ago? We have something to teach others and if you find one of us, then we are here to teach you, even just one new thing... and then let you go on to find your highest good on your own path.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears
A spiritual path takes many interesting twists and turns through our lifetimes. Sometimes we are on our path and don't know it; sometimes we are off our path and may not even realize we're on a path. But we're all on a spiritual path whether we know it or not, whether we choose to believe it or not, whether we want to be or not. We are all somewhere along our own spiritual path and are mirrors for each other on this journey. It's not a competition, no one is ahead or behind... we are all simply where we are right now trying to make the best of it.
When we are on our Soul Path and know it, we perceive events in our lives as lessons which we need to pay attention to and learn from; not as obstacles, tragedies, and sufferings, but to help us learn to reflect God's Love for us in the physical world. To become compassionate, loving, caring beings living harmoniously with our environment and each other. That's not some Utopian dream or religious fantasy of heaven on earth, that's a distinct possibility given the ingenuity and creativity of Human Beings. We are not each others' enemies. Were does it say that we must be at each others' throats all the time over this, that or the other thing? Especially over who's right? No one's right. The truth is, none of us know anything. We're all making this up as we go along.
When asked "What is time?" the ancient sage Augustine of Hippo said, "If no one asks I know what it is, but if I am asked I cannot explain."
My Soul Path has led me to become a spiritual teacher. It certainly wasn't something I planned or anything I even thought about before my near-death experience. It just seems to have evolved into this. I have learned so much from corresponding with thousands of visitors the past years through this web site. I feel very blessed. Mostly what I have learned is to find the words to explain the unexplainable so it makes sense to other people, which helps them progress on their own spiritual paths. I get a lot of "Nobody ever explained it to me like that before...," "It all makes sense now...," I always knew that, I just didn't know how to say it..." and the like. I was given a gift of the potential for communicating the ineffable during my near death experience to awaken others to the memory that we are spiritual beings having human experiences and, while we're in human form, we need to lighten up!
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth.
God loves us-- have fun, don't harm others, do some good, share, be kind, enjoy this wonderful opportunity in this beautiful place to have caring relationships with others and explore all the possibilities life has to offer. This is just another way of saying what pretty much every religion says, except without the threat of judgment, vengeance, hell, fire and damnation attached to it. Human beings don't need to be threatened to become compassionate. We just need reassurance that we are not alone, that we are loved unconditionally and that there is no death because we are at the same time both Human and Divine (just as Jesus showed us and told us we could do even more miracles than he). And that is how it is. We are loved unconditionally and we have an infinite universe in which to express our creativity. How is this not Paradise?
Whatever your religious beliefs or skepticism, keep an open mind. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Some of what I write will offend you, that's an instant message telling you this is something you need to delve into within yourself. You may realize you have been in denial, that your rigidly held belief system no longer works for you. Your Soul can't be contained once you have opened the door to higher consciousness. It will continue to urge you to further seeking. Whether you are in the midst of existential angst or steadfast in your beliefs, if you continue with these lessons you will either confirm and strengthen your own beliefs or awaken from your unconsciousness when the false walls you have put up crumble before you. The latter may have to rebuild from their foundation, but it will become a stronger one than before and they will find the joy that has been missing from their lives. Those who find themselves saying, "Yes, of course, I knew that all the time. I just forgot," will experience an awakening into higher consciousness and change the course of their lives in a short time. They will have risen above the collective and will see the world in a whole new way.
All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. I'm just reminding you that you know it. Those are the Aha!s you will experience as you read and meditate on these lessons. Because you've kept it in the dark all your life, you haven't been living your life with integrity, which is why your life is rife with problems, filled with misunderstandings. When it's out in the light, you have the choice to take responsibility for your life and become all that you can be as a spiritual being having a human experience. Your potential for doing good in the world, going about your Soul's business instead of your own ego-gratification, expands greatly in the light. With that in mind, the information I'm going to share in these Lessons from Beyond the Veil, for those who are ready to wake up, will help you ride the wave of the paradigm shift into Higher Consciousness that is coming. I hope you'll join us for the evolution.
Peace & Joy!
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
