We arrive in the next life in exactly the same state of mind as that in which we pass over; in a confused state, in a clear state, in a clouded state, in a demented state or in any other state in which we happen to be at the moment of our departure. However, we soon recover our natural and a healthful state of mind over there and are once more contented and happy.

An illness may extend beyond the grave for a period upward toward sixty days, but the usual period is about thirty days. In many cases, it consists of nothing but a profound sleep.

We are all met at the gateway of this new life and escorted beyond the boundary and are given such care as is necessary to our recovery.

Blessed are those who suffer no illness nor confusion in passing over, but who enter this new world in a perfectly clear and happy state of mind.
