MYSTERIES AND CHALLENGES OF BIRTH, LIFE AND DEATH – BECOMING A NEW HUMAN BEING
By André de Boer and René Stevelink – LEES MEER OVER DE NEDERLANDSE UITGAVE
The spiritual art of living from inner knowledge, love and strength
Why was I born? What am I supposed to do here? After my death my body decays, but what happens then to my consciousness? Does that disappear too? Or does it increase instead? Will I go to heavenly spheres or will some part of me possibly return to earth in a different body? How can I deal with practical and ethical dilemmas about life and the end of life?
These are essential life questions, posed everywhere by many people, no matter what their culture, religion or social position. If you keep these questions truly alive in your heart, you do not receive precise answers, but those questions dissolve and you yourself become the answer. The true question is not whether there is life after death, but whether you are truly alive before death. Your vision of birth, life and death are determining the way in which you experience and shape your life now.
Birth is the opposite of death, but life has no opposite. Life has always been and life will always be; it is a mystery. You will never fully understand it, but it is possible to penetrate deeply into it, so that you are filled with the true, the good and the beautiful.
Submerge into the ancient and at the same time very timely mystery wisdom of the Rosicrucians as conveyed in this book. Experience the magnificence of the spirit. Be inspired by the Christian mysteries, in which all liberating values of prior philosophies and religions are brought together and renewed. Live in the fiery present as in a daily feast. Enter into eternal freedom, that lovingly beckons you!
