    I think the obvious answer to that, David, would be yes to some degree but perhaps not much. But would you actually want something similar?

    In our RVing days traveling through many of the US states we spoke with a fair few fellow travelers but also we chatted with regular folk in small towns thru cities. Many of those who had traveled to other countries spoke enthusiastically about their visits to Ireland. They loved the scenery, the welcome and, for some, seeing the homeland of their ancestors.

    Even now so many regular Americans - on recognizing our accents - love to tell us how their grandparents, great-grandparents or whatever were British. A few have visited the county we live in. One of the most bizarre situations was when a new-neighbor, someone we'd only just met, told us of the many Brit places he said he'd visited.

    He was an Oregonian and we looked at one another wondering if he was spinning us a line. That was before we found out what a wonderful, warm, caring, interested, genuine guy he was. He rattled off place names and what he'd seen in them. Blackpool with its 'Blackpool Tower' attraction - a mini Eiffel Tower - sticks in my mind. It's a seaside resort you'd only ever expect Brits to know about but he described it in detail, where it's situated and what he'd done there.

    As we chatted our new neighbor (soon to be our best friend) explained how his son-in-law, someone whose character he'd doubted when he married his daughter, had secretly arranged a round-Britain road trip for him and his wife as a wedding anniversary treat. He spoke warmly about the way his son-in-law had organized every single aspect of the trip and drove them all the way - no small task driving in the UK!

    Our friend sang in his local church's choir and both of them loved visiting old churches, things we're not short of in the UK! He loved the ever-changing scenery and our tiny, wiggly, winding roads. Like Ireland much of England is green and for the same reason! Turns out he'd traveled up the west side of England, visiting Wales along the way (somewhere else that's wet and green!) crossed the border into Scotland then returned south down the east side of England to catch the plane home.

    good friends, much missed

    Hi mac,

    If my question sounds offensive, I am sorry about that. Recently I read something about that which triggered me to ask this question. Also I read a book before that (forgot the name of book) talking about the being had a conversation with his spiritual guide in the afterlife. The guide told him actually these ancient tricks work. At that moment, I felt puzzled.

    I wasn't offended but I was very surprised you'd think it was something suitable to ask Mikey, a spirit guide. Perhaps Mikey will see matters differently but there is so much junk 'out there' from so many questionable sources I'd sooner they didn't appear on a website that's dedicated to the simple, gentle message of survival and the afterlife we all will be going to.

    Hi mac,for me I would like some things to be the same,and on the other hand I think we would all welcome the idea of not being able to get physically I'll.

    Depending on what you'd like you should be able to 'engineer' your desire - something like a nice garden or home for examples. But you wouldn't be able to create situations that would need others to be involved unless they agreed.

    As for ill health it's not something you need to be concerned about because we know from teachers and guides that we don't suffer from that.

    It's an ancient book (by my standards) as is the companion 'The Mediums Book' and the style of writing is archaic. I studied it minutely in my early time and thought I had found all the answers. I was wrong! After flicking through my old copy a couple of years ago I tossed it into the recycling bin.

    It's not a Bible for Spiritualism and thankfully there actually isn't any other such book. It is, I believe, highly regarded by Spiritists.

    LOL:)! Thanks as always for your input, Mac!
    I agree the way it is written it is outdated, how could it not be?
    It is also very interesting and contains some very profound q's & a's!

    quite! lol But I also meant its ideas are outdated. Spirit teaching has moved knowledge forward a little.
    I'm pleased you're finding it that way. 35 years ago it's how I also found it. :) I've become old; I've changed - not sure if the former actually preceded the latter. ;)
