1.0 out of 5 stars as above, so below, 11 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife (Paperback)
Did this lost soul deliberately ignore the shadows behind the brilliant production he describes or did the characters in this perfect heaven successfully pull the wool over his eyes? On reaching the end of this unsatisfactory book, I found myself asking again and again: where is the "as above, so below" aspect? Many overlook that this also means: as below, so above.

I absolutely agree with the other 1-star reviews of this book. Not only is there very little about heaven here (less than 20 out of the 200+ pages) but the author provides no proofs whatsoever - of anything. I'm astonished at over 850 glowing reviews on Amazon.com and over 50 here on Amazon.co.uk - I can only guess that these are the same people who raved about the Ringing Cedars series of immoral fairytales.

Eventually I understood: what this poor man experienced was a show, just like a musical but a much better production, as it engaged all the senses. In order to make something appear so perfect, others have to be working really hard in the background. The angelic characters he describes are either faking it (just like actors) or are heavily into denial.

What he perceived is a bit like finding yourself on a perfect island resort: white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, a gentle breeze, singing birds, lush greenery on the hillsides and clear turquoise water, lapping waves, beautiful corals and tropical fish. You can have a wonderful time with clean, ironed sheets every day and great food only because badly paid drudges living in slums are doing the dirty work.

If you've read this far and are puzzled, I recommend the "Right Use of Will" series, which goes into detail about the parts (inside us as well as reflected outside of us) that have been judged against, controlled, disciplined, punished and denied - the seamy underside of heaven. If heaven was truly so perfect, there is no way they would leave billions to rot in the hell we have allowed to be created here while just a few thousand wear couture and, dripping in jewelery, travel by private plane to their mansions in different parts of the world - all run by slaves (anyone who MUST work is a slave) - while also heavily denying their sordid contributions to the seamy underside of the world they live in.
