As a long-standing member of the Society for Psychical Research and President of the College for Psychic Studies, Paul Beard was an authority on psychical research and in particular the study of life after death. He wrote numerous books on the subject including his trilogy, Survival Of Death, Living On, and Hidden Man, followed by Inner Eye, Listening Ear. During his lifetime study the author followed the evidence wherever it took him; 'sitting' with many mediums he gained their confidence and meticulously recorded what he discovered. The result is a comprehensive account of our most important questions; Why are we here? Do we have a karmic footprint? What happens after we physically die?
As a result of his studies Beard was enthusiastic about his impending death. In 1986, three years before his passing he wrote: "Whatever is learned on earth, or we think has been learned, the path still winds forward, the quest goes on. The horizons extend, not diminish."
"... At once deeply spiritual and yet expressed in simple and clear language. Not every reader will agree with that scenario, but none looking sincerely for spiritual truth will finish it without enrichment". ~ David Christie-Murray "This book completes Paul Beard's trilogy... As usual, he exercises an exemplary caution and discrimination in handling this delicate area of research... Readers will find themselves illuminated by this lucid account of his spiritual odyssey, and will see much to be applied to their own conditions".
