“The Key of Life A Metaphysical Investigation” by Randolph J Rogers
My friend Sandy was reading this book and knew that I had an interest in this area because of another book I had edited and co-wrote called “Beyond the Physical”. They both have the same subject matter, out of body experiences.
The Key of life was an interesting history of Rogers search for answers and the changes those answers brought to his life. He become obsessed to learn about a childhood classmate Kathy Lynch, and in his heart new that she had died. It took a while for him to track down her family and verify that indeed she had died of ovarian cancer. But that just added to the questions he had, about her life, about why he was so obsessed with her, and why his life felt so empty.
Another friend sent him to an acupuncturist to experience regression therapy to explore his past lives. He was skeptical at first but quickly accepted the results of his therapy as he easily slipped into the past and identified his relationship in a past life with Kathy. Over and again he went to the acupuncturist and experienced more and more past lives and built a relationship with Kathy that he had not had in this life.
His experiences were interesting. The only thing unbelievable was that many of his past lives were tied to extremely famous people. In one he was a Pharaoh and in another he was Peter walking with Jesus. The most interesting experience was when he was able to go to England and find the Castle he had experienced in his regression therapy. To be able to walk in a town that had changed that much from the 1500s and find the exact spots he had walked.
Rogers is a good job of keeping you turning the pages wanting to know what’s going to happen next and explaining his feelings as he encountered people from his past and how that had influenced who he is today. Also interesting is his explanation of how everyone is related and how the knowledge of all time stored behind gates somewhat like heaven. The concept of multiple dimensions and how past reincarnations influence who we are today thought-provoking. Looking for keys and signs in our lives that will tell us the meaning of our life, present, past and future makes you think about who has been in your life the beginning of time. And when you declare your love for all eternity, exactly how long is that going to be.
I found the book interesting, a good page turner, well-written, and a fascinating subject. The ISBN number is 978 – 0 – 9823850 –9 – 8. it sells $18.95 in the US and has reviews by Shirley Jones and Maria Shriver on the back cover.
