A well-intentioned parable, full of big ideas but short on emotional intensity.


This is the sixth book by Ricardo Petrillo, who passed away at age twenty after a tragic accident in college. Ricardo "dictates" to his father through a process referred to as channeling. In his previous books Ricardo described his experiences in the spiritual world (Eternal Bonds of Love), took his parents during their sleep on a journey through different spiritual realms (Poems for a Better World), showed us the many factes and power of love (Poems of Love), through a remake of Romeo and Juliet's story taught us that taking one's own life can never be justified (Eternal Romeo) and took us on a "tour" through the ages of America's history discussing the fate of our planet and its inhabitants (Planet Janus). In Journey of Light - Lessons from a past life we meet Julius at his old age. He attempts to discover why he has had nightmares and sleepless nights all his life. Through self-hypnosis he relives a past life as Daniel, a young Parisian who suffers significant physical and mental pain which led to his spiritual awakening. Through this experience Julius understood how his previous existence shaped him. In this book Ricardo reminds us of our true nature as immortal spirits living multiple experiences in the flesh, through the ages, to better ourselves in our quest for spiritual growth and perfection.
