Beyond the Threshold
A HINT FOR THE READER
While recording the "Deathbed Scenes" Lorber received an additional message, which was meant to facilitate the comprehension of that which is here being presented and because of its importance serves as an introduction. It is also intended to answer criticism declaring certain scenes and phrases incompatible with the divine inspiration of these dictations - without considering that the soul in the beyond, prior to uniting with its spirit, cannot think, talk and act otherwise. Here the statement: ... "Some scenes are here rendered pictorially and verbally as they really take place in the spirit world, so as to give clear proof to the reader of this revelation of the following fact: man, after the shedding of his body, remains exactly the same person as to his outward appearance, his language, his opinions, his habits, behavior, inclinations and passions. This applies also to his actions arising from the latter. All this is so until he has achieved the full spiritual rebirth. Therefore, this condition after transition is called the 'natural (material) spirituality', while a fully reborn spirit finds himself in the condition of the 'pure spirituality'. However, the locality is always a reflection of the true inner nature of the spirits concerned"...
May this hint be of help to the new reader of the presented scenes in the beyond and of the great works on the beyond which because of their volume, appear as separate works.
