I was delighted to see that this book is still in print. I read it more than 20 years ago and it still remains close to the top of my short list of books that truly changed my life. The author, a Phd psychologist, examines the readings of Edgar Cayce and presents her results in such a clear and logical manner that it is difficult to argue with her conclusions. Soul is eternal, reincarnation and karma are real, life is a school. She traces the karmic causes of most diseases and other negative conditions and shows how justice is served through many lifetimes. She does not neglect the effects of positive karma. In the end, it is all grist for the mill of soul: wealth, poverty, hardship, etc.; just opportunities for soul to unfold and discover it's own divine nature. She gives example after example that are so concrete and real that they will give the most hardened sceptic pause. For someone like myself who was raised to be an intellectual and a nonbeliever, this material was a real revelation. This book was one of the foundations of my spiritual education. Most importantly, I was able to confirm the author's conclusions with my own experience which is the only thing that counts in matters spiritual. Highly recommended!
