Abstract
 
Description
At bottom, life and death are our greatest teachers--if we shall but listen. Iris Bolton's personal story of her son's suicide is a deeply moving, poignant one. It is a story of both a devastating tragedy and an exquisite triumph--and the agonizing, relentless, conflicted process connecting these two oppositional pulls. We in our Western, ultra-scientific and technological society are just beginning to discover that death, from the beginnings of time, has always been present. Life and death are inextricably bound together in the process of living. All of us have known this all the time, but we have pretended that we didn't know what we knew. Until recently, we have chosen to keep death in the shadows and separated from the light of life. As a result, we have made ourselves more vulnerable to its pain and destruction. That this is true is well documented in this book. I celebrate our growing consciousness that death is a Presence always present in all our lives. And living life in this manner of awareness gives us a new sense of personal power and freedom. We are better enabled to live, explore, experience, and know God's universe and Love as He intended--and thereby be more adequately prepared for the final journey . . . Home. Iris Bolton's book is a powerful step in that direction. - from Amzon
