BasingstoNe, UK, & New YorN: Palgrave Understanding Death as LifeГs
Author: Brayton Polka
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
This book focuses on death as life’s paradox in order to test, to put on trial, what it means for us human beings to exist. No one of us chooses to be born. Yet, having been born, we must choose to have been born, to live, to exist. To exist is to choose to exist. To choose to exist is to live with our choices. This text argues that death is the limit of life, that we can live freely and lovingly, at once justly and compassionately, solely within the limit of death. It shows that we can develop a comprehensive conception of life, and also of death, solely insofar as we learn to overcome the dualistic opposition between philosophy and theology that continues today to falsify our understanding of not only the secular, but also the sacred.

Death as a phenomenon has always baffled mankind. No one wants to die yet every moment we are dying. In fact the medical science has proven that every cell in the human body degenerates and there is a constant regeneration. This degeneration or decay is nothing but death. In fact death as a phenomenon scares us because we have the limited understanding of life. Death is an absolutely necessary process for life to be. It is not the enemy, it is the friend. And it is not there somewhere in the future, it is here, now. It is not going to happen, it has been always happening. With each exhalation it happens -- a little death, a small death -- but because of fear we have put it in the future.The mind always tries to avoid things which it cannot comprehend, and death is one of the most incomprehensible mysteries. The following pages is the authors understanding of death which is a constant companion of a practicing physician as well as his readings about what the great philosophers and religion has commented on this intriguing topic.The topics are a part of collection of lectures taken by theprincipal author during his discourses on the topic of understanding death.

From We.... To Me is for any person, male or female, who has experienced devastation from separation, divorce, or the death of a loved one. While there are many books written on these topics, this book is original because of the views and suggestions of its co-author, Ghivda, who was author Nancy Burke's former husband, Tom. He has been communicating with Nancy from the spirit side through a medium. Tom made his identity known through his awareness of specifics that Nancy has lived through and specifics occurring in her present life. His humor and his syntax are also earmarks of Tom when he was in physical form. Tom died very suddenly at the young age of 55, while skiing. In spite of reading every book she could find on death and grief, Nancy spiraled deeper and deeper into grief and depression. From We.... To Me offers new thoughts and understanding and is a positive approach to assist you in raising yourself from the debilitating grip of grief. Ghivda's views and explanations from his perspective of unconditional love and wisdom are completely enlightening and extremely different from when he was in the physical as Tom. Discover the difference From We ... To Me can make in your life.
