Spiritual and Personal A very personal book that anyone can relate to in one way or another. The book could be a matter of controversy, yet the editor has clarified that from the start.
A great read without a doubt. Highly recommended for sure! Apr 05, Gord Higginson rated it really liked it. Classic "scientific" study of life after death by Myers, a classicist who was one of the founding members of the British Society for Psychical Research in the late Victorian era. Fascinating book. Whether all this stuff is true or not -- and I think a lot of it probably is -- an immensely fascinating book. In depth and convincing.
A very good guide to this arena of soul survival. Interesting and encouraging enough that Rabindranath Tagore was himself impressed by this book.

Ever wonder what really happens when you dream, or when death occurs? And why do affirmations work for certain people and in certain circumstances, but not for everyone and all the time? FWH Myers lived a very full life, even surviving near deathin his 20's as only member of his gold-mining expedition. When he finally turned to getting trained as an M. These works are but a partial presentation of an ever-growing subject on personality and its survival after the body dies. This book is an exposition rather than a proof. What Myers tried to do is to render knowledge more easily gained by coordinating it in a form as clear and intelligible as his own limited skill and the nature of the facts themselves permitted.

Yet it is strictly true to say that man has never yet applied to the problems which most profoundly concern him those methods of inquiry which in attacking all other problems he has found the most efficacious. The question for man most momentous of all is whether or no he has an immortal soul; or—. In this direction have always lain the gravest fears, the farthest-reaching hopes, which could either oppress or stimulate mortal minds.
