In my previous review of True Hauntings; Spirits with a Purpose by Hazel M Denning, I forgot to discuss a concept I found quite intriguing. The original post is available here: https://ferretrunner.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/something-new/
In discussing several of her cases, Dr. Denning spoke about the concept of humans as spirits with bodies rather than bodies with spirits. At first glance, the difference is obvious… 2+3=5 and 3+2=5. Isn’t a body with spirit and a spirit with a body the same? Being a spirit with a body expresses the continuation of life. Our spirits live on through lifetimes. There are different levels of awareness and existence. Being spirits with a body, we can naturally connect with the other dimension. In a sense, this explains the almost innate sense of “Higher Power” that the majority of humanity share. We may call it by a different Name. Even athiests, IMO, have a sense of something else. They may describe it as science. If we were bodies with spirits, the body becomes of larger importance.
