Life Eternal

Whatever channels of evidence we pursue in order to obtain an insight into the consciousness of nations, tribes, or peoples, we find unmistakable signs of a belief or an inherent faith in the continuity of life.

And yet throughout the centuries, in spite of prophet, priest, and theologian, men's concepts of a future existence would ever seem to be varying, contradictory, and uncertain.

To the recluse, it presents an atmosphere of severe purity; to the affectionate, a world of kindness; to many others, it gives but a vague anticipation of release from suffering and sorrow. Even in Christendom, outside the teachings of Christian Science, a clear, satisfying understanding of everlasting life has been, and still seems to be, lacking.
