Through dreams, visitations and channeling, he describes what happens during the death process, what the afterlife is like, what he does with his time there, what it feels like to be a free soul, the nature of thought and reality, the meaning of life and the human experience, as well as other matters”.

Truth Contest at http://www.truthcontest.com/ says this about itself: “This is a contest to find and spread the truth about life and death, the ultimate truth. People that enter may represent philosophy, science, religion, or themselves. Any seers or prophets out there?” Apparently, the site is the initiative of a group of college students. However, we are unable to find on the website anything more specific about them than that.
March 12, 2009
On Truth and Reality at http://www.spaceandmotion.com/ introduces itself with this interesting observation, “Despite several thousand years of failure to correctly understand physical reality (hence the current postmodern view that this is impossible) there is an obvious solution: Simply unite Science with Metaphysics and describe reality from only one substance existing, as Leibniz wrote, ‘Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another’.”
February 11, 2009
Healing Crystals at http://www.healingcrystals.com/ describes

Free Maziar Bahari at http://freemaziarbahari.org/ is
dedicated to the Newsweek journalist
who has been arrested by the current Ahmadinejad administration in Iran. Although
normally TZF steers clear of political issues, I have chosen to include this
website link here because, quite frankly, I am tiring of the endless stream
of politicians, including America's own, who seem to be either unable or
unwilling to behave in a civilized manner.

Closer Than Close at http://www.poetryinmotionfilms.com is
an eighty-minute documentary about the spiritual or inner search for Truth.
The film consists, on the one hand, of an ongoing conversation among a small
group of young seekers reaching together for an understanding of Life's Reality,
and on the other hand, of talks by three men who have found what they are
looking for. The juxtaposition of these two mediums — struggling seekers
and successful seekers — makes for a particularly rewarding viewing
experience, offering as it does both the reassurance that we are not alone
in our hopes and doubts and fears, and the promise that yes, even we, whoever
we are, can succeed. This film has a nice, poetic flow, enhanced by good music
and beautiful images from nature.

Sexual Dualism to Spiritual
Oneness, a new book by TZF visitor Charu Bahri, explores celibacy and
spirituality. Charu writes us, “While many perceive celibacy as a boring
or a hardly attractive proposition, for anyone interested in spirituality,
this book will present a reasonably convincing (at least in my view!) case
for celibacy, encompassing both purity of personality and a character firmly
balanced between masculine and feminine traits, in order to reach the highest
state of self-growth or evolution possible”. Her book offers a collection
of inspiring sayings and teachings drawn from numerous spiritual
traditions, including TZF’s own article, Do
We Have To Give Up SEX?. The book is now available directly from the
author at email@example.com.

100,000 links on a wide range of subject matter, including death, future,
folklore, skeptics, ghosts, as well as religion, spirituality, and the like.
The site’s guidelines insist that the process by which sites are chosen
for inclusion is “highly selective and focused, and that this directory
is not a promotional tool”. From what we saw, it seems the site lives
up to that promise. (By way of full disclosure, not to mention the risk of
revealing a touch of pride, we note with gratitude that TZF is a recipient
of the site’s “Top Site Award”.)

Blind Chihuahua, The Virtual Church at http://www.dogchurch.org/. This
extraordinary site introduces itself as follows: “Welcome to this sacred
place in cyberspace named after a little old dog with cataracts, who barked
sideways at strangers, because he couldn’t see where they were. We humans
relate to God in the same way, making noise in God’s general direction,
and expecting a reward for doing so. Hence our creed: We can’t be right
about everything we believe. Thank God, we don’t have to be!”

the public a resource of information concerning controversial and/or potentially
unsafe groups, which may have drawn some concern, attention and/or interest.
… Here you will find an archive that contains thousands of documents, which

Christ, Yes; Religion,
This book is the work of TZF’s good friend, Art Hale. The book’s
fundamental premise is that the teachings of Jesus,
on the one hand, and the creeds and doctrines of Christianity, on the other,
are two entirely different things; and a seeker should
feel free to reach for the former, while rejecting any or all of the latter
that proves unhelpful. Among the subjects addressed in the book are: the “essential
polarity of creation”; the tendency of religions to
use “fear, guilt, and shame as motivators”; and ways and means of
achieving conscious contact with All That Is through prayer and meditation.
Regrettably, the book is out of print and no longer available.
Art has submitted a
poem and a short story to TZF's Open
Space, and he is a frequent contributor to TZF's Open
Forum, where he is known as W4TVQ.

we are better able to understand our lives and our selves.

America’sDoctor.Com at http://www.americasdoctor.com/.
This site describes itself as “an Internet-based, health information
and resource site designed to assist consumers with their health information
inquiries.” It includes an extensive library of health-related information
and a lot of other very good stuff, including real-time chat capability with
a medical doctor. Although not to be confused with an actual visit with an
actual medical practitioner, this site is a valuable resource.

The Pet Center at http://www.thepetcenter.com/.
A friend of The Zoo Fence writes us that she found this site to be very helpful
in addressing a potentially unhappy experience with her cat.
