If you wish to be eternally happy, know and believe you will live after death. Always remember this, for it is the truth.

Emanuel Swedenborg
Heavenly Secrets #8939
first published in 1749

Grief has a way of changing a person forever, including me.  Due to the multiple loss (9 deaths in 6 years during my teen years: mother, father, both sets of grandparents, my favorite cousin, a friend and my fiancÚ, Jim who died in the Vietnam war) and the delayed, repressed grief that I underwent,  I would be completely devastated and unable to continue in this world if it were not for the enormous spiritual healing that God freely gave me through the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. I admit to being in both the physical and spiritual worlds. For me, it is the only way that my grief doesn't overtake me and I have become a happier and more productive person here.  I have chosen to embrace the experience of my ADCs (After Death Communications) and to trust that there is another life beyond this life where God does wipe all tears away forever.

Trust in the Lord, do good. . .
and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Psalm 37:3,4

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

Emily Dickinson

What a Wonderful World

(performed by Louis Armstrong)

I see trees of green -  red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day -  the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people goin' by
I see friends shaking hands saying "how do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you"

I hear babies cry - I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world
