Welcome to Unraveled. For years now I have been posting links to sites on transients.info’s Facebook Page based on the topics that transients.info covers, and which myself and others run into, but now I am going to try something new. Instead of posting these each day I am going to collect them and eventually unravel them out similar to Bernie’s Unspun here on transients.info.
I’m not going to set a schedule just yet, such as a daily edition; perhaps at least once a week I will unravel this collection — that is if this continues to feel like a good idea!
Bernie’s Unspun is really the inspiration for this, so thanks Bernie! Note that I don’t personally follow Unspun, so there is sure to be some duplicate links now and again.

Roundtable Forum Thread Of The Moment
Adventures in the Afterlife by William Buhlman
“Adventures in the Afterlife is a powerful journey of spiritual awakening; a bold quest for answers and enlightenment. The old assumptions of heaven are confronted and an expansive new vision of our continuing life is presented. After being diagnosed with cancer, William Buhlman, author of Adventures Beyond the Body, pursued answers to the mysteries of our existence after death. Confronting his mortality, he experienced profound insights into what lies beyond our physical body. Our journey into the next life is the basis for Adventures in the Afterlife. The author chronicles his out-of-body experiences and lucid dreams through the eyes of a fictional character, Frank Brooks. The insights are sometimes surprising, but a clear message is always apparent; we are powerful, spiritual beings and we shape our reality now and in the future. The purpose of this book is to prepare us for the many thought responsive environments we will experience. William Buhlman teaches and lectures worldwide on the subjects of out-of-body experiences and spiritual empowerment. Visit the author at astralinfo.org.”
