Worth Repeating This Month
"I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as fraud.” — Carl Jung
“The Church anchored its ship sixteen hundred years ago, and the capstan has rusted up. It shirks the issue, and will not openly examine and pronounce upon the mass of evidence which exists on the subject of the future life." — Hugh Dowding

Book CoverWhen Santa Was a Shaman — Tony van Renterghem
This work explores the origins of Santa Claus, going back to prehistoric times and man's earliest concepts of religion. It analyzes how ancient myths from countries as diverse as Britain, Russia, Scandinavia, Spain, and Africa were adapted, sanitized and commercialized in modern times.

Book CoverMindsight: Near-Death and Out-of-Body Experiences in the Blind — Kenneth Ring, Ph.D.

It is difficult to escape the conclusion that blind people, even if blind since birth, can sometimes see colors, objects, and physical scenes during stressful "out-of-body" experiences. Such an ability strongly supports the existence of an astral body.
