Having recently delved into Eben Alexander's "Proof of Heaven", this book is an excellent companion, an elder statesman, and an inspiring glimpse into the bigger life beyond this everyday world, the realm of other dimensions. That it should be through the inspiration of a musician (and his scribe, Jason Leen) I feel is highly significant. Music and songs touch the soul. John Lennon was a great example of an artist using his art to ponder the unponderable, to explore the big questions. I've read many scholarly analyses of songs and lyrics in my time, but they always leaven me rather cold, because the realm of powerful music that touches lives IS BEYOND THE LIMITING INTELLECT.
For me, the power of this book is precisely that: imagine a world where Infinite Love is possible, where we can fly with our dreams, where we are all connected. The very things that John Lennon was writing about in his life paved the way for a beautiful and inspirational passing. From the other side he received an immensely powerful download about the nature of Life and Love. No wonder he wanted to tell us all about it.
A few months ago I reviewed "Across the Universe", and it is only fair that I review this book, as well. Both claim to be the channeled after-death experiences of John Lennon, but for me, only one resonated with my soul: "Peace at Last".
For anyone expecting a day-to-day account of John's life in Heaven, you will be disappointed. This is not an after-death diary of his experiences in Heaven as much as its an account of his transformation from an ego-based human being to the spiritual being that he (and we all) are.
What was amazing to me is that there is no way the author could have made this stuff up. Every detail of what occurs in the spiritual realms is told in such a graphic, pain-staking way that you are left awed by the descriptions. What I came away with was the comfort in the beauty, love and healing that awaits us all, and how the shedding of our earth-based egos is an automatic and necessary process that aligns us with the spiritual beings that we truly are. John, upon his death, is taken through a transformative process wherein he evolves more and more into an enlightened spirit..still cognizant of his earth family, yet slowly embracing and remembering his real Home. He is joined by his mother who aids him in this spiritual Home-coming and journey. This is in stark contrast to "Across the Universe" where the John in this depiction is very much still a slave to the ego and his earth-bound ways which did not ring true to me at all.
If you want to read a fantasy novel regarding "John Lennon's" adventures in Heaven, then "Across the Universe" is for you. However, if you want to experience through the enlightened spirit of John Lennon his after-death journey through the spiritual realms and their role in transforming him from the identity we know as John Lennon to the spiritual being that he is, read "Peace at Last" and see for yourself.
Having been raised to believe in heaven, I found the narrative of the wonders John experienced on the other side to be truly comforting. Granted, the reader can believe that the account actually happened or dismiss it as fiction, but the existence of universes (plural), pure energy and love are what dreams are made of.
John's descriptions are so full of visual references, I intend to reread the book a little more slowly this time, to more deeply "see" and feel each phase of his vibrational changes. Who knows when we will experience these things for ourselves.
The book also left me wanting more information from John: answers regarding his hoped-for contact with Yoko, his sons' possible reactions (with whom he had only been able to visit in dreams), and more about how his peace messages were ultimately received. The world's awareness has definitely shifted since his death, and he just may be part of a collective band of heavenly peace messengers/teachers just waiting for the students to be ready.

This book seems to be more about spirituality than about John Lennon. The author never explains how he is communicating with John and is written like he is...Read more
