If, on the other hand, you have a fairly high degree of understanding of the works of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and Ian Stevenson, you will find parts of this book to be a bit troubling. First neither Ross nor Stevenson ever said that they have provided complete proof that there is either life after death or a phenomenon called reincarnation. Both scientists went to great lengths to state that these were merely viable options to the other conclusions that could be reached for the circumstances that they were exploring. They stated that these were possible explanations and not 'the' explanations. For this author, Trutz Hardo, to claim otherwise is somewhat slanderous on his part. Secondly, I am not sure if it merely because of a translation process, but there are a few parts in the text that the English interpretation makes little or no sense. Thirdly, the author has attempted to make a god-like icon out of Stevenson that he may, or may not, have actually deserved. Admittedly, he was a very hard working, dedicated and single-focused scientist who preformed as objectively as possible in a highly subjective and emotionally charged subject area. He was very humble and while his findings were quite compelling, he never wanted his works to have been compared to the likes of Galileo as Mr. Hardo inanely attempts to do. Lastly, the author has a tendency to be a bit Pollyannaish in his projection of the ramifications to these after-death studies.Read more ›
Hardo is a total believer in reincarnation, which is not bad, in my opinion. But he also seems to feel EVERYONE should believe in reincarnation, and believe in it exactly as he does. He even states at one point in the book that obviously everyone that had reached that point in the book must certainly now believe in reincarnation! In other words, he starts sounding like a missionary...no different from missionaries of organized religions. Reincarnation answers most of his questions about life, and he believes it would be that way for everyone, if they just gave it genuine consideration, and read stories that "proved" reincarnation was a reality.
He also adheres to "God's Laws of Karma"...which he says means one must reap everything one sows in one's current life or future lives. Thus, if you were cruel in your last life, it makes no difference that you are no such thing in this one, and all the rest of your lives...you must still reap that cruelty! It's supposedly the only way you'll learn not to be cruel...even though, you actually obviously learned it some other way! :) I mean, really, is this way of thinking anything but a simple minded type of vengeance...that even makes God responsible for the revenge? (Roy Stemman deals with this matter very nicely in his book "One Soul, Many Lives", using an excellent quote from English journalist Hannen Swaffer.Read more ›
