PREFACE Knowledge is the best antidote for fear, especially if that fear should be of the possible or probable state of existence after we have made the change from this life to the next To discover what kind of place is the next world, we must inquire of someone who lives there, and record what is said. That is what has been done in the present volume The communicator, whom I first came to know in 1909 -- five years before his passing into the spirit world
Author: Anthony Borgia
Is there really such a thing as heaven, where God has "prepared a place for us"? Or does life for us begin and end on planet Earth? Are all those orbs in the seemingly infinite universe just there for us to admire as we gaze up into the night sky? Or is there life on those other worlds? When we die our body remains behind on this planet, but where does the real us-soul, spirit, consciousness-go? Can something so vital one minute disappear into nothingness the next? Some say that we cannot know, that nobody has ever come back to tell us. But is this true? Many believe that angelic beings as well as "the dead" can transmit information to us telepathically via gifted human receivers, and many accounts brought through from "the other side" indicate that the universe is teeming with life. This compilation of three popular books channeled though Anthony Borgia-Life in the World Unseen, More About Life in the World Unseen, and Here and Hereafter-will give you a glimpse of the places we are destined to inhabit when our lives on earth are over. The World Unseen is the first volume in the LIFE ON OTHER WORLDS SERIES, comprising classic accounts of the afterlife, collected from many sources. Descriptions vary, yet a thread of similiarity runs through them all, just as descriptions of life on Earth by a New Yorker, a Tahitian, and an ancient Egyptian would bear likenessess to one another. Would you get on a plane to China without first learning something about the country and its inhabitants? Probably not! Yet most of us do just this when we approach the end of our lives on earth. It is hoped that these books will serve as a travel guide as we embark on our greatest adventure-the journey into the mysterious realm beyond this world, told by those who are already there. Are these accounts true? Only you can judge that for yourself.

Every heart longs to be seen and understood. Yet most of our lives is unwitnessed. We spend our days working, driving, parenting. We sometimes spend whole seasons feeling unnoticed and unappreciated. So how do we find contentment when we feel so hidden? In Unseen, Sara Hagerty suggests that this is exactly what God intended. He is the only One who truly knows us. He is the only One who understands the value of the unseen in our lives. When this truth seeps into our souls, we realize that only when we hide ourselves in God can we give ourselves to others in true freedom—and know the joy of a deeper relationship with the God who sees us. Our culture applauds what we can produce, what we can show, what we can upload to social media. Only when we give all of ourselves to God—unedited, abandoned, apparently wasteful in its lack of productivity—can we live out who God created us to be. As Hagerty writes, “Maybe my seemingly unproductive, looking-up-at-Him life produces awe among the angels.” Through an eloquent exploration of both personal and biblical story, Hagerty calls us to offer every unseen minute of our lives to God. God is in the secret places of our lives that no one else witnesses. But we’ve not been relegated to these places. We’ve been invited. We may be “wasting” ourselves in a hidden corner today: The cubicle on the fourth floor. The hospital bedside of an elderly parent. The laundry room. But these are the places God uses to meet us with a radical love. These are the places that produce the kind of unhinged love in us that gives everything at His feet, whether or not anyone else ever proclaims our name, whether or not anyone else ever sees. God’s invitation is not just for a season or a day. It is the question of our lives: “When no one else applauds you, when it makes no sense, when you see no results—will you waste your love on Me?”

Throughout history there have been rare individuals who transcend what most of us believe to be possible- enlightened beings who have access to experience and knowledge most of us do not have. The Indian-born avatar Mother Meera is such an individual. Born Kamala Reddy to an illiterate family, she was from a young age observed to be different from other children-she would sit in the forest for hours on end without moving or uttering a word and soon began attracting a following of devotees who would arrive to sit in her presence. Believed to be an embodiment of the Divine Feminine, she doesn't preach, speak, or charge money, and is of no particular religion; instead, she gives light to those who seek her help. Known throughout the world for her abilities to undo oenergetic knotso and to radically quicken the spiritual development of others, she has a center in Germany, where thousands of people visit her each month to receive her famous darshan,a silent blessing, and she has established a school in India for more than a thousand of the neediest students in the region. Writing with her approval and cooperation, Mark Matousek, a longtime follower, has crafted a deeply moving and insightful book that takes us as close as possible to this remarkable woman, and to the experience of enlightenment. Advance praise for Mother of the Unseen World oMother of the Unseen Worldreads like a classic adventure novel, with one exception-much of the adventure goes on inside the reader as we follow Mark Matousek's everyman journey from pain and doubt to discovery and awakening. I don't know who I learned the most from-the wise and powerful Indian saint Mother Meera, or the very human, very real, and equally wise Mark Matousek. I could not put this book down.o-Elizabeth Lesser, author of Broken Openand co-founder of Omega Institute oMark Matousek brings us to the feet of Mother Meera in this transcendent, rapturous, astonishing book. He is at once an inspired teacher and the humblest of students. This is a divine book about a divine woman and one of the best books I've read on the need for the return of the divine feminine here and now.o-Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologuesand In the Body of the World oMother of the Unseen Worldis absolutely riveting. It's clear and engaging-and at the same time, deeply searching and thought-provoking. Mark Matousek uses his own encounters with Mother Meera as a lens through which to examine her life, teachings, and influence in the world.o-Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

The Council for Exploration Into Worlds Unseen believed there was more to reality than the Empire had taught them—but when they came a little too close to the truth, tragedy ended their work, leaving the terrifying and beautiful world behind their own still hidden. As he lays dying forty years later, one of the last Council members entrusts an ancient relic to an orphaned young woman named Maggie Sheffield: a scroll that will reveal the truth at last. Along with the Gypsy Nicolas Fisher, who hears things no one else can, Maggie sets out on a journey across the Seventh World to deliver the scroll to a group of rebels in the east. But the price of truth may be too high: for Maggie and Nicolas are tearing at the Veil between the seen and the unseen, between good and evil, between forgotten past and treacherous future. Monstrous forces are already on their trail. And when the Veil grows thin enough, it’s anyone’s guess what may come through. Worlds Unseen is the first book in The Seventh World Trilogy.

A tour-de-force of a debut that blends classic fantasy -- the fascinating, frightening, sometimes-invisible world of the djinn -- that's genies to some of us -- with the 21st-century reality of a super-hacker in mortal danger in a repressive security state on the Arabian Gulf. Alif (that's his handle) is a brilliant young superhacker working out of his mother's small apartment, and his computer has just been breached. While Alif scrambles to protect his clients -- dissidents and outlaws alike, whoever needs to hide their digital traces, he and his friends realize that they've been found by 'the Hand' -- maybe a person, maybe a program, but definitely able to find anyone, and that could lead to prison, or worse. Alif, with the help of his childhood friend Dina, an ancient book sent to him in secret by his lost love (who may be frighteningly connected to the Hand) and a terrifying protector who almost looks human, must go underground -- or rather, find a way into the hidden world of the djinn. They wrote the mysterious book centuries ago, and have knowledge that might just allow Alif to infiltrate the most sophisticated information technology the world has ever seen, and perhaps save himself, his loved ones, and freedom itself. With shades of Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman, William Gibson, and the timeless Thousand and One Nights, Alif the Unseen is a tour-de-force debut with major potential -- a masterful, addictive blend of the ancient and the more-than-modern, smuggled inside an irresistible page-turner.
