This review is from: On Life after Death, revised (Paperback)
This tiny book offers the kind of hope all those who have been devastated by the loss of a loved one so often seek and seldom find. It should, of course, be read as an adjunct to the Kubler-Ross' later book On Grief and Grieving: Finding the Meaning of Grief Through the Five Stages of Loss. It was the seventeenth (17th) book I read about grief and grieving after my father left this world four years ago today. I have found this book to be the most moving. The author, now deceased herself, a physician who worked for years with dying adults and children, not only believed but was CONVINCED that there IS life after death and there ARE people awaiting us "who died before you, who loved and treasured you a lot". This theme has been repeated in a number of works about grief including Don Piper's 90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death & Life, Don Piper, himself a Baptist minister who actually reportedly died for 90 minutes and came back to life convinced of the existence of a beautiful afterlife.
A University of Michigan educated Masters level social worker (MSW) for 32 years I STRONGLY recommend this book for all those who grieve and for the mental health and pastoral professionals who work to help them.
The book concludes with the words "Death is but a transition from this life to another existence where there is no more pain and anguish." This is linked with the author's previous reference to "the death of a human body...identical to what happens when the butterfly emerges from a cocoon....Dying is only moving from one house into a more beautiful one....As soon as the cocoon in an irreparable condition--be it from suicide, murder, heart attack or chronic disease, it doesn't matter how it happened--it will release the butterfly, your soul so to speak....when you die...the connection between the cocoon and the butterfly...will be severed. After this, it is not possible to return to the earthly body. But you wouldn't want to return to it anyway, for after seeing the light nobody wants to go back...Here there is understanding without judging, and here you experience unconditional love....God is unconditional love."
