But the actual experience; the actual crossing over the threshold, between one realm of life and another, is amazingly quite similar for most people. Life, in many ways, is a series of deaths. We are always moving from one experience to another.
On Grief and Dying: Understanding the Soul's Journey
Thus it is with death. Death, then, becomes a very natural part of life. We move from one room into another. Depending upon which side of the doorway we happen to be in comparison to the one crossing the threshold, we label that transition either death or birth. Please note this last statement. Death and birth are basically the same process.
Both involve passing through the same doorway. The only difference is the direction of movement. What is death on the Earth plane is birth in the Spirit world.
And birth onto the Earth plane can be considered death in the Spirit world. Physical death is but one of many deaths which we encounter as we move from one earthly life to another. We could settle, once and for all, the question of death by saying that death does not exist; that there is only life; that death is but one of countless experiences found in life.

But that would be quite a lot to ask you to accept, without some further instruction. Therefore, let us look at this wonderfully great adventure, known as death. Before we examine the process of physical death, we need to look at the question of survival.

Janus Head / Robert Romanyshyn's The Soul in Grief - Book Review
In looking at the dilemma of proving that we do survive death, we are confronted with the following question: Proof of survival is a very personal matter. What is unquestionable proof for one person may hold no validity for another.
Therefore, we must begin by saying: Proof must come from within; but proof often approaches upon the wings of knowledge. And knowledge is something that we can provide.
There are several phenomena which psychic researchers have, over the years, investigated that indicate the validity of life after death. I use the word "story" because, as those who are familiar with his earlier works Psychological Life and Technology as Symptom and Dream already know, Romanyshyn considers his craft a "story telling," because it is within story that we recognize ourselves and the contextual forms in which we participate, the roles to which life calls us, and are thus able to ruminate and to dream, allowing experience to transform us.
Within the depths of grief and mourning, then, it is story that provides a structure and guidance necessary to traverse the arduous and oftimes seemingly insurmountable barriers that such inveterate sadnesses generate. Romanyshyn approaches grieving not as process with "cause and effect" symptoms, but as a nonlinear journey into the depths of the soul.

As Thomas More writes in the book's preface, "Don't try to understand, but do try to accept all the many invitations presented here for reverie and reflection.

Relating his trials to us, he recounts the desperation to know the reasons "why," the exact medical cause of his wife's death. But in the obsession to know definite answers, he found himself living in medical charts, slips of paper, scientific reports that could not impart the exquisite detail and warmth of body, of memory.
