things are rarely what they appear to be
on 23 July 2010
several years ago,I have read many of the books written by Browne. They fascinated me. I was open minded but uneducated. I tended to believe rather easily. Several years later ,I became much less gullible and started to see things for what they were, rather than for what I'd like to believe. Now I would never read something and take for granted that it's true, unless the reputation truly lives for the author. In this day and age of the Internet, where it's not so hard to evidentiate so many myths and frauds, I'd strongly encourage you to look into the Browne wikipedia article, where her fiascos are exposed, such as one in a mine. Another one involves two poor parents that asks Browne about their deceased daughter, the video is on youtube, look at it yourself and you'll start to reconsider the beliefs that you hold about Browne.
What can I say about this book? It's written for the layman, by a 'layman'. It speaks about how things are and look when we die, it mentions a 'soul-mentor' (can't remember how Browne calls it) called Francine, and so on. It basically speaks of a reality outside of our own, however I see no use of that for anybody. I feel like I have wasted valuable time.
Several years ago, her books made me believe that Browne could really see and do things the way she claims she can, but several years later, after getting to know HER other side, she completely disappointed me.
I myself have seen some strange stuff, so I am not closed minded, but I also know that for every little true thing, there is a gazillion of fakes. If you research about Browne you'll will not find one single ,concrete shred of evidence that she ever gotten one of her 'prophecies' right.
My conclusion is that although there might be an 'other side', I have no need to risk being 'taught' from someone who steps in boldly claiming she can do this and that, and then seeing such miserable fiascos like the ones you'll see on youtube , if you search.
Don't be gullible, and never feel the need to believe anything without strong evidence that it is true. Be open minded but smart and not gullible, and always hear claims from 'special' people, from both sides, not just one of them. Wikipedia is almost always a good place to look.
