A comprehensive look at the mysteries of mortality through the lens of Eastern religions.

—Kirkus Reviews

Soul Afterlife – Beyond the Near Death Experience is an unorthodox examination of death, soul life and the process of a plausible reincarnation. By traveling outside the restrictions of traditional convictions, near death experiences start to take on the appearance of walking along the parameter of an extremely complex afterlife. Beyond our ego defined picture of what occurs after we take our last breath lies something extraordinarily multifaceted, yet magically powerful.

What is the soul?

“Soul Afterlife offers a refreshing and inspirational insight into the critical, existential dilemmas that have burdened philosophers, scholars, and theologians for centuries. What is the Soul? What happens when we pass?”

− Stefan Tomasi, author of The Ethereal Road: A Soul-itary Tale

Fresh & engrossing

“Megargee’s eloquent understanding of how death and the complex afterlife soul is viewed through Eastern philosophy is fresh, engrossing, and will appeal to spiritual explorers of any stripes including beginners. The informed spiritual reader will feel right at home.”

− Prairie Book Review

Unorthodox view of the afterlife

“This is a different perspective on the Afterlife from any others I have come across and so provides much for the adventurous soul to ponder. If you are open to a radically different way of looking at life and the afterlife, then this one is for you.”

— William Fergus Martin, author: Afterlife Adventures, Forgiveness is Power, Four Steps to Forgiveness

Answers provocative questions

“Bud Megargee’s book answers provocative questions human beings have about life, spirituality, the otherworld, universal energies, and other spiritual subjects.”

— Literary Titan

A must-read

“Contains new insights that I have never heard of or even considered before – vastly interesting!”

Bronwen Skye, author of Conversations With Spirit: The Truth About Death and Reincarnation

A courageous exploration

“This book is an antidote to the dread and fear of total extinction following physical death.”

— Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

“Megargee…has no qualms about admitting his uncertainty when faced with great mysteries of life. Such a sense of humility is refreshing in a spiritual guide, and it’s the book’s greatest strength.

AUTHOR’S NOTE

As luck would have it, for the duration of my life, I have securely stored all my life imprints—the triumphs, disappointments, warnings, and blemishes—for safekeeping. One thing that I cannot warehouse, however, is my unanswered questions, and at the top of that list is this: What happens when this life comes to an end?

Here is something that I seldom talk about: during stolen moments of meditative reflection, I often become aware of the actions that drive how I view the aftereffects of my life. Every so often, I develop an uneasiness about all of this. This unease hinges on the muffled thoughts that seem to connect with my built-in stability—something that I am not always in touch with. In these moments, I struggle to exchange my newly meditative calm for everyday human awareness. Despite this tussle, I inevitably come to realize that there are serious questions about the purpose of my life and the possibility of a soul life hereafter.

I would like to think that a desire to find answers to these questions might offer a thoughtful approach to the existence of an afterlife—a soul life that is architecturally designed to balance out my ego’s need for continuance. My thoughts on this matter? Maybe if I could construct an expedition into the realm of souls with an optimistic viewpoint, the possibility of clarity, mindfulness, awareness, and, in the end, purposefulness, would exist.

As a writer, I approach this afterlife condundrum with questions, and the desire to know that there is a deeper understanding to be had about life’s mystical puzzles.

Being human, I am inherently calibrated to experience some separation between what I have been taught and how those learnings relate to my human experience—my lifelong conditioning. This gives me the ability to proclaim that I am unconditionally able to distinguish between the real and the unreal. As a writer, however, I approach this afterlife conundrum with questions, and the desire to know that there is a deeper understanding to be had about life’s mystical puzzles. Specifically, when I die, is there some type of continuation, and if so, what does that look like?

As a result, Soul Afterlife: Beyond the Near-Death Experience is an intimate, interactive, and Socratic-like journal that explores the possible aspects of an otherworldly soul life. My interest focuses on the existence of both human and spiritual energies that, time and again, reside in the untraveled hallways of life.

Reader Reviews

“I found it helpful to open my mind and cast off any preconceived notions around living, dying and what comes next. When I stopped trying to apply ideas I already had, it felt easier to read and take in.

If you have unanswered questions and the patience to navigate the depth of our human existence and how we affect all that happens in our life and afterlife, then set aside some quiet time to read this book.”

I loved that the author added a warning in the introduction stating this book is not to demean anyone’s beliefs or feelings, that it is his spiritual journey.”
