About the Author

Born in Scotland from his earliest days he has been the consummate observer witness and recorder of all that happened to him and around him. In his teens, while dabbling with yoga he had an out of body experience which was so scary it put an end to to any further interest in the subject but later, another spontaneous repeat rekindled his interest sparking a life long fascination with what is commonly called the 'occult ' then when a friend was murdered he went looking for answers and found them at the Spiritualist church where he received irrefutable proof of the continuance of life after death by very down to earth mediums. Taking up Kendo, primarily to lose weight, he soon became such an enthusiast that he decided to go to Japan for three years where, during Kendo practice he experienced states of altered consciousness that would have been ridiculed in the west but were openly accepted in the east, it was also in Japan that some very vivid prophetic dreams he'd experienced years before became reality. When he met his wife Hideko, an experienced yoga practitioner, she was able to explain and clarify the various stages of altered consciousness which are the natural effects of the different stages of meditation. Five minutes experience is better than a lifetime of academic or philosophical ponderings and from the years of cumulative study and actual experience he has come to 'know' without a doubt we are not in our essence human beings but immortal spiritual beings who inhabit a human body for a certain period of time in order to experience physical reality.
