  13. 13. T houghts of our origins and the purpose of our existence most often occur in that brief moment before we slide into sleep state. When our days work is done, we watch the six oclock news and grow weary from too much television. In that dark, waiting state, between lights out and the welcome veil of sleep, our minds will often query the reason for our being. I know I did! I was just like you—hard-working, dedicated, ambitious—and after twenty-five years of twelve-hour days I felt I had made it. A successful businessman, the proud owner of A gifted spirit several jewellery stores, I enjoyed the fruits of my labour: a large waterfront home, luxu- ry apartment on the beach, investment properties, a Mercedes-Benz, and private schooling medium, for my two sons. But deep inside me I often felt that life must have a greater purpose. Surely this could not be all there was to it. Then one day, quite unexpectedly, the Lord João de Deus tooketh away; actually, it was not the Lord, but some low life—a common thief who robbed one of my stores and reduced my materially wonderful life to rubble. incorporates As I sat staring at my empty shop, contemplating the consequences of an insurance pol- icy that would not cover the circumstance, I had the first glimpse of how fragile, how spirit entities who futile a purely material life really is. It was in the following bleak months of receivership that I was forced to look for a perform physical deeper meaning to life. When the world finally stopped spinning and all I held dear was gone—marriage, wealth, properties, income and, most of all, my self-worth—it was time surgery and to look for another meaning; not, I hasten to add, the ritualism of modern religions or the zealous fanaticism of the newborn breed. My years of calculated commercialism left me psychic healing with a permanent factual attitude to life, so I needed proof in cold hard facts to support any new beliefs. through him with I have been given the opportunity to observe, at first hand, irrefutable proof of the rea- son for our existence.

That bedlam between the Corn Flakes and the results. six oclock news does not provide much time for concerted thought. It takes time, quiet time, and lots of it. It requires instruction, explanation and education on a subject which is the antithesis of materialism; one which is totally intangible, incomprehensible, another world—literally, another world. As physical human beings, we require proof before we believe. I, for most of my life, accepted only what I could see, feel, eat or put into a cash register as real. I was the ulti- mate sceptic. On that memorable day in January 1996 when I first squatted on the floor of the main hall at Abadiânia, so closely I could touch the action; armed with SLR camera and flash I watched earnestly for the hidden card, the sleight of hand or the obvious set- up. What I saw astounded me, as it astounds countless thousands of first-timers. I saw Raul rise from his wheelchair, after fifty years as a paraplegic, and walk.

We are incarnated, and after this life we will be reincarnated again into another life. (There are many well-documented cases of hypnotists taking countless numbers of people back into past lives. They speak languages totally foreign to them and they describe in detail places and lifestyles of long ago, which are frequently proven correct by subsequent investi- gation.) 2) If you remove the physical shell we call the body, what is left is the real you: your soul, your spirit.
