The cover art intrigued me. The mechanism of letter writing is a perfect fit here. You could substitute.. Future Children with Future Parents or Future Humans. The author has a stream of consciousness style that presents a wide range of topics in what could be described as a buffet of knowledge. It is very accessible and the table of contents leads you directly to topics of interest. The author is unapologetic in his position on souls and reincarnation. That is the point. There are truths contained here that he has found on his journey and they are provided here for the reader to digest or decline. To that point, the book might easily be called Suggestions for My Future Children. The warm and embracing tone is thoughtful and conscious of its target.. presumably his progeny, but clearly and more likely humanity as a whole. It is a fairly quick read that will have you returning for its timeless messages. Recommended for seekers of all faiths and creeds. This book serves as a reminder for people looking for positvity and affirmation that truly... it IS the THOUGHT that counts.
"Letters to My Future Children" is an important book and a work of art. I feel as if the author is speaking to me in everyday conversation as he shares his ideas. Not only are the letters to the author’s future children and other new souls coming into the world. They are also for people like me who have lived on Earth for decades and still want to grow and evolve, contemplate and meditate on new ideas with an open mind, heart, and soul. The author does not try to force his opinion and thoughts on us. Instead, he shares what he thinks and we’re free to consider the information as we walk on our own personal journey discovering ourselves and deciding what's right for us. "Letters to My Future Children" has had a profound affect on my dear friend who started to consider the end of his life since he’s lived nearly 100-years-old. My friend told me that until recently he never concerned himself about his death or even thought much about it. Basically, his idea of afterlife was a “complete blackout: “BLOTO” as he called it, the end—nothingness. However, after reading "Letters to My Future Children," my friend has opened his mind to consider new ways of thinking about death and the afterlife. “Maybe that’s how afterlife works,” he told me. “There could be a better way to think about the end of life.” My friend told me, even though no one in the afterlife ever came back to tell him what their experience was like, he's now open to consider new possibilities. He’s even reminiscing how wonderful it would be to meet again with his wife of many decades who died less than four years ago and see other family members and friends, too. He’s now opening up his mind and heart to an afterlife different from “a complete blackout: BLOTO. "I highly recommend “Letters To My Future Children" to every one no matter what age, from the beginning of their life to the end of their life. Kathryn Mora
I rarely read books with a spiritual bent, but found this easy to read and accessible as en entry point because so much of the focus is on values and how to live by them. The letters may be framed as to the author’s future children, but they are good ideas for all of us to consider. I like that the author says we are free to accept and discard ideas in the book as we see fit. This makes it much more approachable than people who claim their beliefs are the Truth and you must believe it. I will definitely recommend this to people looking for more meaning in their lives!
Much of this book comes from the viewpoint of reincarnation. Reincarnation is a matter that I've never given much consideration and, when I did, erred on the side of disbelief. But the author's conviction is written with such positive force, that I left the book subtly shifted. A hopeful optimism has set in. Even if you're skeptical of Indra's talk of an eternal soul, I promise his thoughts will charge your own with a genuine sense of bliss. This purchase is a terrific present to anyone seeking a different perspective on how to make a change in their own life, as well as the world.
