About the Book

The main theme of my book is that the afterlife is real and substantial and that all of us, when we arrive there at some point, will soon realize this. Our spiritual bodies are very much like our natural bodies, except that the spiritual bodies are in perfect shape. Life in the afterlife is, at least superficially, very much like life on Earth. People in the spiritual world live in real places: beautiful cities or country locations in heaven, and noisome slums in hell. People there work as they do on Earth—willingly and joyously in heaven, not so in hell. They also enjoy time off from work, which is marvelous in heaven and, within strict limits, somewhat enjoyable in Hell. We are full human beings in the afterlife, up to and including that dreaded word for most religions—sex. But in the spiritual world, time and space function differently, being fluid and connected to our thoughts and emotions; deception is nearly impossible, and the economy is a moneyless one.

About the Author

I have been a believer in a real and substantial afterlife that is based on the divine writings of Emanuel Swedenborg since 1977. It was in 1977 that the best friend I ever had, Cathy Osuna, died at the age of thirteen. That event introduced me to the wonders of Swedenborg’s magnum opus, Heaven and Hell. I currently live in Fairfax County, Virginia. I am forty-eight years old and have worked for Trader Joe’s for ten years.
