The theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, an 18th century scientist and mystic, are among the most rational and comforting of all dealing with the Afterlife. Even though Swedenborg was a Christian, he wrote that people of all religions were in Heaven and his writings are ecumenical cutting across all denominational and religious lines. Below are some sites that are recommended reading for anyone dealing with bereavement issues and/or seeking information regarding the Afterlife. Be sure to check every month as I am trying to add links to articles on a regular basis. Look for thesign.

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

Who is Swedenborg? 

A visionary of great brilliance with an estimated IQ of 200, Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) spoke nine languages, wrote works covering seventeen sciences, excelled in seven crafts, was a musician, a member of the Swedish parliament, and the inventor of a glider, a submarine, and an ear trumpet for the deaf.

Swedenborg was a physicist who anticipated Einstein by two hundred years; an astronomer who suggested the nebular theory of the formation of the planets; a mining engineer who produced the first Swedish texts on algebra and calculus; a physiologist who discovered the function of several areas of the brain and the ductless glands, and the designer of the world's largest dry-dock.

His earthly accomplishments would have filled a dozen lifetimes. But they were not enough for Swedenborg, who pressed his search for the human soul beyond material intellect into the spiritual world.

Not content with the limits of the physical senses, Swedenborg opened himself up to vistas that only spiritual senses can detect, and became a messenger bearing news of the world and beyond and within. He wrote 35 volumes of what he observed in the spiritual world over a period of 27 years.

Many famous people have been influenced by Swedenborg's works, including Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, Bill and Lois Wilson (founders of AA and Al-Anon), Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Carl Jung and others.
