I enjoyed having the opportunity to speak to everyone who came out to Tropical Acres to support Steps To Salvation last Saturday night. Here’s the first of two videos taken by Boris Balaban. In this one, I talk about my motorcycle accident, near death experience, the evolution of my novel and what all of us must do to bring Salvation to earth.
UPDATE: After giving it some thought, I’ve decided to make this an open event. Click here to visit the Facebook event page.
The date and location remain the same but I invite you now to come and enjoy FREE Hors D’Oeuvres and Dessert on Saturday, July 5 at 6:30 p.m. at Tropical Acres Steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale. I will host a book-signing table (no purchase required) and make a special presentation about the eternity of life and the soul. God bless you and I look forward to seeing you!
Please contact me here to RSVP no later than June 25. Thank you!
Now that my book is officially available for purchase, I am hosting a launch party at the iconic Fort Lauderdale restaurant, Tropical Acres. I want to thank Jack and Francie for all of their help in putting this special event together and look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday, July 5. During the event I’ll host a book-signing table and take photos with my guests. I also plan to share my insights about The Other Side and all the things I learned from The Council when I was in heaven. This includes the facts that there is no hell (we’re in hell when we’re in physical bodies on earth) or “death”, and that the soul is eternal. We get to come back over and over again to learn lessons and grow closer to God. Although this is very controversial and heretical to those who lead and follow organized religions, I hope everyone will at least hear me out. I enjoy respectful, spirited debate and discussion, so the evening promises to be very memorable. And of course, the food will be excellent!
Look for photos, videos and a recap of the July 5 festivities soon. Thank you for your support of Steps To Salvation.
As I learned from my time on the other side with The Council, this earthly existence is hell. Part of choosing to incarnate into a body and live on earth means learning to cope with miserable, unhappy, and rude people. I came across this article from J. Elizabeth Young and thought I’d share. Visit Tiny Buddha to read the whole thing, but here is a sample:
We all have encounters with people who prefer to stay miserable, making everything difficult. They exist, and perhaps there was a time in your past when you once where one of those negative people. Perhaps you still can be at times.
As a former miserable person I know it was my inability to handle my mental and emotional states that kept me oozing all over others. I felt so disconnected from life, living obsessively in my mind, that I truly felt helpless.
Most often that helplessness manifested into continuous critiquing, judging, anger, and sometimes even pure rage. I was unwilling to take full responsibility for my relationship to life. I wanted peace, joy, and harmony, but I was unwilling to do the necessary work to experience them.
Difficult people are demanding. They demand something from the external world in hopes of filling the disconnection and restlessness they feel within. Whether they are demanding our attention, a certain action or reaction, or a particular outcome, the root of their behavior is a demand for something other than what is.
Difficult people haven’t yet learned to take responsibility for their whole selves—mind, body, and spirit. Feeling disconnected and restless gives rise to their need to argue, judge, critique, and tweak everyone around them.
Their inability to handle themselves adds fuel to the fire, which perpetuates their harshness.
Underneath their personality is a feeling of being separate and a desperate plea for help. We can’t change another and we can’t make someone want to change. The only way we can help is by being true to our self, finding our power within, and being an example of wholeness.
