The Structure of Heaven
The spiritual world is hugely diverse subject. There are angels and demons, ghosts and haunted houses, and of course, the spirit of Aunt Selma who drops in every so often in a dream or channeled through a medium. There are thousands of books written on each of these subjects, but no one ever seems interested in putting the parts together in a coherent whole. How does one reconcile, say, the Catholic version of a beautiful Heaven versus a demon infested Hell with the very benign vision produced by the famous “bereavement” mediums on TV who speak of a busy and happy afterlife with virtually no negativity to spoil your heavenly enjoyment?
Where do all of these spiritual entities live? Why does Aunt Selma seem to live in a happy part of the spiritual world while the ghost of some long forgotten guy haunts an old house across town? What’s the difference between a ghost and a demon? Who goes to Heaven? Is there a Hell? How about reincarnation; and if reincarnation is a fact, how does it relate to an eternal Heaven? Do bad people just become good when they die?
In addition, you have all the complexities of the world of the paranormal. There are psychics, mediums, ESP, psychokinesis and a world of parapsychological phenomena all attributable to living people. If you want to understand the spiritual world, you have to understand the world of psi and intuition because these facilities are the nexus between the living and the dead. They are the way the two worlds communicate with each other.
You could look up each subject individually since there is an unending supply of information about each one, but the question of what happens to individual souls after the death of the body depends on which books you read. Each religion has its own answers. To Catholics, you either go to Heaven or Hell depending on your adherence to the church dogmas. To Jews, everyone remains in an anesthetized state in the Sheol until the final judgement. Most protestants believe in Heaven and Hell, but your fate depends on which denomination and what they taught you in Sunday school. Psychics and mediums can’t agree either.
None of the sources address the ultimate fate of ghosts or how to avoid becoming one after death. What happens to lovable Uncle Charlie who spent his life scamming the public and was in and out of jail all the time? Nice guy, but he was a criminal! What if I commit a crime and no one ever finds out? What will happen to my soul then?
This book has been in the works for over 45 years. It started as a hobby and culminated in The Structure of Heaven. Ultimately, I wrote this book in an attempt to make sense of all the seemingly contradictory information about Spirit, and in the process, I came to believe deeply in God. It was a long journey for me. I’m not saying I know all the answers, but maybe by reading this book, you can get a better handle on the spiritual side of your life.
