    While searching Amazon for new books on reincarnation . . . as in books I have not read . . . I saw many on the topic are very inexpensive, or "free" if you have Kindle Unlimited. Thus, I thought I would start this thread for books like that. One book I see right now that is both a KU book, as well as only 99 cents to buy is:

    https://www.amazon.com/Children-that-Time-Forgot-Paranormal-ebook/dp/B00BIU36IE/ref=sr_1_10?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1500442067&sr=1-10&keywords=reincarnation+&+past+lives

    That book was mentioned in Carol's first book, and it took me years to find a copy of it. This was before e-readers, and the few copies out there were going for over $50. Mind you, it's a little paperback. I finally found a copy at eBay . . . and discovered I really wasn't that impressed by the book. :) But it's an interesting collection of stories from the UK.

    P.S. I see now it's listed here in the forum on the page for books about children's past lives, but that's a different copy and there are two different book pages at Amazon for the book.

    Ken, we recently discussed that book, didn't we? If not, this is deja vu here. It may have been my expectations for the book had gotten too high, since I had searched for it for so long. Thanks for the suggestions. I may have to get Kindle Unlimited now. It's free for 30 days and then only $9.99 a month, for any month you want it. You can read a lot of books in a month! Are those books you particularly liked? Maybe we can start book club discussions here.

    Here are my notes about those books, these are simply my opinions,YMMV:
    Adventures of a past life regressionist - Laura Bogen – Interesting, but very short.
    What the aliens told us about God, Jesus, Human Soul and the afterlife - Interesting, but probably fictional.
    12 Real life reincarnation stories …in the news - Nicely done inclusion of some good stories.
    Reincarnation and past life memories - A short book about reincarnation with stories and historical perspectives.
    Miracles, angles, and afterlife - Parts were good. A very Christian outlook.

    You're smart to keep notes on books you've read, Ken. I remember a lot of the books I've read and how I felt about them, but there are plenty more I can't even remember if I've read. I think I'll start with the 12 Real Life Reincarnation Stories.

    The best book on life between life that I have read is Life After Life. Although many people think this is a simplistic view, I find it very comforting. Comforting that everyone gets what they deserve in the end and that there is so much help on the other side helping us all. The book has 12 stories ranging from people who have just started their reincarnation cycle (materialistic and selfish) to a story of one who does not need to come back and earned her place in the spiritual world. Modern Christians don’t like this book, just because they were born into a Christian family, they deserve the ultimate reward. Sorry, that’s not how it works…

    Well, no one really knows for sure how it works, in my opinion. We actually just know what we believe. ;) I'll read the book you mentioned. I'm surprised it has the same main title as Raymond Moody's first book. That's what I was thinking it was at first. Currently, I'm reading an e-ARC of https://www.amazon.com/dp/178678033X/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=IU4UZHBMCTT61&colid=28EHD5FSZ6K7G. It's coming out in November. I'm afraid it's not holding my attention very well. It's not the stories in the book, however. The stories are all so far believable and thoughtful ones, but they are all generally sounding alike to me. NDE stories, like angel stories, eventually don't seem that interesting after you've read so many of them. At least, that's what happened to me. Thanks for the book suggestion.

    I have read all of Moody's books and found them inspirational in my early years. These are perspectives of people who returned from NDE and have limited memories from what they experienced. Great information, but only one viewpoint. The new Life after Life book (initially published as Hereafter) is written from the perspective of people who died and have lived in the spiritual world for some time before telling their stories through a deep trance medium.

    I'm not sure about how much I believe in mediumship these days, but I'll definitely give the book a try.

    You are very correct to be skeptical of mediumship. It takes a long time to find out who is talking through the medium and there are only a few that have proven to provide valuable information. The medium mentioned in this book provided over 2,000 one hour + sessions. I have read most of the 2,000 and found no inconstancies.

    I'm currently reading a book by Natalie Sudman, Application of Impossible Things, $8 as an eBook (but I have a paperback). It is NOT about reincarnation specifically, more about an even bigger picture. What I find to be of great importance is her ability to paint a picture of what she learned with words about her visit to "another reality" after being "blown up" by an IED in Iraq. I highly recommend it for the descriptions she gives of her experiences and her ability to put it all together. This is an NDE that details more than reincarnation.

    This video is interesting and is why I bought her book. About the 40 minute mark is an explanation of what I believe about my injury, but I don't recall the "funny" part.

    Thanks for the link. Her story made a great impression on me, because of some similarities I've experienced without an NDE. It was/is so weird that it concerns the same information.

    Hi Firefly, I hadn't remembered your post, or missed it somehow, that is very interesting.

    I've finished the book now, still impressed, but it didn't add much to what I had already gotten out of what I had already read. The thing that puzzled me was that I was unable to retain much long-term memory during the first month after my brain injury whereas she was. It is really strange that I recall someone asking "Is he dead?" as I was laying there in the back of the semi-trailer, but little else now. I had some mid-term memories that I was able to tell people after that that never formed long-term memories like one that a friend recalled that I told him where the EMT told the driver that it wasn't necessary to hurry because he didn't think that I was going to "make it" - I don't even remember this friend ever visiting me in the hospital, that's how bad my brain was scrambled.

    What I find interesting, since that time so long ago now, is that when I hear or read some of those recounted experiences I feel a familiarity with what is being revealed.

    Do you feel a similarity with the physical experiences or with the other dimensional stuff?

    Actually no, I have felt that I have been deprived of the many understandings, or paranormal abilities, that others have talked about from their brain injuries. I guess I should be thankful rather than wanting more; after reading about concussions and brain damage plus sitting for long periods leading to dementia while experiencing a heck of a brain injury and sitting for over forty-six years. It's just that some things I hear or read sound so familiar sometimes that I think that they must be part of something I must have experienced myself at sometime. Mainly my experiences have only helped me in my understandings while in the field of psychology.

    I recently found a new author: M. F. Masvil
    Who has begun to publish his saga of novels called Remember me
    where the author develops the theme of souls, reincarnation and destiny.

    When I read the first book I was shocked, I expected a romantic story but it was much more than that. It has very good parts of action, mystery and an original and creative plot in which the author develops and explains very well how destiny and reincarnation work.
    It is clear that M. F. Masvil has researched a lot about the subject and knows how to put it in a different way, approaching the reader with a very entertaining adventure.

    Here you have the link if you want to read it (you can choose between English or Spanish version):
    https://www.amazon.com/M.-F.-Masvil/e/B07D44JCWJ

    by the way the book is now for free in the Amazon's kindle unlimited and here is the book cover:

    I wonder if anyone here has ever considered Plato as being a prominent author on the subject of reincarnation? All of Plato's written work is freely available on the internet, and in many languages, besides ancient Greek. Generally, academia looks upon Plato as a mere philosopher, whose writings mainly deal with philosophical and political ideas, as they relate to human nature. But it's amazing that, with little exception, academia has never taken Plato seriously when it comes to reincarnation. Some have recognized the metaphysical aspects within Plato's writings, but even those, generally, do not take Plato seriously on this subject.

    It's nearly impossible to find anyone in academia these days, the students and experts on Plato, that will believe in the soul, and its immortality.

    Yes, I said, my dear Glaucon, for great is the issue at stake, greater than appears, whether a man is to be good or bad. And what will any one be profited if under the influence of honour or money or power, aye, or under the excitement of poetry, he neglect justice and virtue?
    Yes, he said; I have been convinced by the argument, as I believe that any one else would have been.
    And yet no mention has been made of the greatest prizes and rewards which await virtue.
    What, are there any greater still? If there are, they must be of an inconceivable greatness.
    Why, I said, what was ever great in a short time? The whole period of threescore years and ten is surely but a little thing in comparison with eternity?
    Say rather ‘nothing,’ he replied.
    And should an immortal being seriously think of this little space rather than of the whole?
    Of the whole, certainly. But why do you ask?
    Are you not aware, I said, that the soul of man is immortal and imperishable?
    He looked at me in astonishment, and said: No, by heaven: And are you really prepared to maintain this?
    Yes, I said, I ought to be, and you too–there is no difficulty in proving it.
    I see a great difficulty; but I should like to hear you state this argument of which you make so light.
    Listen then.
    Plato's Republic

    I'm going to state something here that perhaps has never been uttered, and it may seem as I'm throwing myself into an abyss without a bottom. In fact, even those who are considered as being in the far fringe will consider my idea as being the far fringe to them. And this is where my idea will seem to be coming from to others, as far as Plato and reincarnation is concerned. Because, in a nutshell, Plato is the ultimate source that will provide the "undisputed" truth of reincarnation. To prove that not only there is such a thing as as soul, but that the soul is immortal and imperishable. Man's essence is soul ,and not body.

    "I must try, like the shipwright, who lays down the keel of a vessel, to build a secure foundation for the vessel of the soul in her voyage through life. Human affairs are hardly serious, and yet a sad necessity compels us to be serious about them. Let us, therefore, do our best to bring the matter to a conclusion. ’Very good.’ I say then, that God is the object of a man’s most serious endeavours. But man is created to be the plaything of the Gods; and therefore the aim of every one should be to pass through life, not in grim earnest, but playing at the noblest of pastimes, in another spirit from that which now prevails. For the common opinion is, that work is for the sake of play, war of peace; whereas in war there is neither amusement nor instruction worth speaking of. The life of peace is that which men should chiefly desire to lengthen out and improve. They should live sacrificing, singing, and dancing, with the view of propitiating Gods and heroes. I have already told you the types of song and dance which they should follow: and ’Some things,’ as the poet well says, ’you will devise for yourself–others, God will suggest to you.’ These words of his may be applied to our pupils. They will partly teach themselves, and partly will be taught by God, the art of propitiating Him; for they are His puppets, and have only a small portion in truth. ’You have a poor opinion of man.’ No wonder, when I compare him with God; but, if you are offended, I will place him a little higher......." Plato's Laws!

    With the debt of the "per taxpayer" here in the USA of $183,000, it would seem that there are many here that agree with you. This includes $170 Billion in Student Loans. Interest paid on credit Cards is at around $120 Billion per year.
    Reality works against that, unfortunately.
