Afterlife

Symphony No. 2 in C minor ‘Resurrection’ – II. Andante moderato, a remembrance of happy times in the life of the deceased. Community Audio collection. License.
Composed by Austrian composer Gustav Mahler (b. 1860 – d. 1911), who acted as a bridge between late romanticism and the modern style in music, Symphony No. 2, known as the "Resurrection Symphony," first performed in 1895, reflects his lifelong view of the beauty of the afterlife and resurrection, which is the concept of a living being coming back to life after death.

Just above the clouds

I thought about American author and self-described psychic and medium Sylvia Browne (b. 1936 – d. 2013) as I was reading in November of 2013 through Visits from the Afterlife with genuine respect for her ability and for her brave and honest contribution, strictly with the intent of helping others, in the area of the realm of the supernatural. The haunted house parts of it aren’t something I’m versed at, though they were still interesting to look at. I found her book inspiring. She fully embraces her ability without apologizing for it, yet her approach towards life is very forthright and down to earth at the same time. She’s done all that heavy stuff without losing her sense of humor.

90 Minutes in Heaven was written by an evangelical pastor who suffered severe injuries from a life-threatening car wreck. I’ll give it 5 stars for literary merit because it was as well-written as a seasoned journalist or veteran correspondent would recount a news story. Without being presumptuous or judgemental, its author related his supernatural experience and road to recovery.
