Some of you might wonder what or who inspired me to create the spiritual videos on www.LIFEexplained.com. The short answer is: My father - long after he was dead.
It all began in the year 2004 when my father was dying and had only weeks or days to live. After a long and very eventful life he calmly accepted his fate, which he believed would be his final end. In other words he did not believe that there was life after death. As a soldier in WW2 he had seen a lot of deaths and he was sure that once a person has died that was the end of him. My father lost all faith in religions when he witnessed the priests blessing the guns and cannons and sending the men off to war in the name of God.
We four children took turns being by his side throughout his last days. He was totally aware of everything around him but could no longer speak. One day when it was my turn to spend my precious time with him I said: "Dad, I know you don't believe that there is life after death. But just in case you find yourself still conscious after your body has died, allow me to tell you what you might experience so that you are not totally surprised if that should happen."
And then I shared with him what might happen to the soul after the physical death. I drew this spiritual information from the many paths, sources, seminars, teachers, and insights that I had studied over the past 45 years with great passion. After I finished my father gave me a faint smile, indicating that although he had heard me he knew such crazy stuff would certainly not be waiting for him.
I had totally forgotten this episode but it came back to me in a surprising way four years later. Some of my friends were raving about a young medium who was visiting the area to promote his latest book. His name was Roland Comtois and I decided to meet him during his forthcoming book reading at our local new-age bookstore. Since it was a small place I arrived early to make sure I would get a seat. As I was settling in and closed my eyes for a short meditation somebody tapped me on my shoulder and said: "Hi I am Roland Comtois. I saw you entering the store. At the same time your father appeared and rushed up to me and urged me to speak to you. He told me that you are his son and that you explained to him what would happen when he died. At the time your father didn't believe you, but he told me that you were absolutely correct and your information had helped him tremendously to find his bearings in the spiritual world. He urged me to tell you that you must go out and tell other people about this because he sees too many souls arriving on the other side who are totally lost and confused because nobody prepared them for what to expect. Your father asks you to write books about this and inform as many people as you can."
When Roland continued sharing some other very personal matters that my father had told him I knew for sure that he really was communicating with the soul of my father. At first I felt very uncomfortable about the idea of publicly sharing my knowledge of the spiritual worlds and laws. I always thought that this was something very personal and private. I struggled with my father's request for quite some time until one day during a meditation I received the inspiration to make short videos instead of writing a book on this topic. In these videos I could use my illustrating skills and visually show how these spiritual laws and dynamics work and influence each other. Furthermore with such videos I would reach a lot of young people who are desperately searching for spiritual truth.
That is how I started www.LIFEexplained.com which features now more than 60 short videos.
I like to take this opportunity to thank the many viewers who have shared with me how these videos have helped them and brought clarity to their understanding of the spiritual laws. Your words have encouraged me to add many more videos in the years ahead.
