On the other side

I'm a little amazed at the miner's final note. Martin Toler managed to write a note to his family, "It wasn't bad just went to sleep. Tell all I [will] see them on the other side."

Bless these men, dear Lord... they were men of prayer and turned to You in faith in their final moments.

That's really all I have to say this morning, perhaps will write more later. You could also read yesterday's posting if you want. And take a moment of silence this morning in love and appreciation for these dear men.

Dear Laura,
What I love after many years of studying and applying Science is, that it opens my understanding towards other books which deal with the same subjects as Science & Health does. White Eagle's books are one of these and in "Sunrise" he gives such spiritual and comforting insides into 'death' that I again want to share a passage from it in case it comforts someone.

"It is often noted that the Gospels say little about life after death, about ‘here’ and a ‘hereafter’. Jesus strove rather to convey that all truth is contained within one simple word: Love. Jesus said, 'Love one another,' and St Paul went on to say, 'Love is the fulfilling of the law.'
Jesus was not wholly concerned with the spirit world; nor yet with the physical, intellectual, or emotional aspects of the human being. He did not divide life into segments, but considered human existence as a whole. He had learned the secrets of the perfect life, and the secret of control over all aspects of himself. In him there was no separation, for the Christ within him had revealed the whole of universal life. There was no need for him to speak about ‘here’ and ‘hereafter’ when to him death did not exist and life was eternal."

Peace, Veronika
