CHRONICLES OF A REBIRTH
In 2014, the unimaginable happened to my friend Dr. Melvin Morse. Dr. Morse, best-selling author of Closer to the light, beloved pediatrician hailed and voted by his peers as one of "America's Best Doctors" in 1997-98,2001-2002 and 2005-2006, and who appeared on Oprah and Larry King to talk about his books and about his extensive research on near death experiences in children, the same Dr. Morse who had published many scientific articles and papers in trusted medical journals, was sent to prison for almost three years. While this is neither the place, nor the goal to discuss the matter, it is the right avenue to share with you what unfolded from this harsh and stunning time.
Before Dr. Morse was incarcerated, he and I had been working on developing the Spiritual Sight technique, a method of remote viewing that would have many applications in everyday life. From finding a lost piece of jewelry to connecting with the "soul" of an illness in a patient, Spiritual Sight had become the focus of our joint research project.
Dr. Morse knew that there was an important development that could arise from the practice of Spiritual Sight, because of the many different aspects involved in the method of remote viewing. One of these key aspects was meditation.
When Dr. Morse started serving his sentence in the Sussex Correctional Institution, he and I, immediately began exchanging letters.
Life in prison became a very difficult reality that he had to accept: a constant feeling of insecurity, unknown surroundings, the inside “rules” between inmates were a few of the many harsh daily facts he had to deal with. For someone who had been a doctor helping others all his life, this transitional state required that he dug really deep for the LOVE that he needed to express, in order to continue, day to day living without falling into despair.
I wrote my very first letter to him on April 14th 2014, about a week after his first day in prison. Although I was still in shock at the news of him being incarcerated, I remember vividly thinking I needed to show him support and encouragement, rather than pity.
Writing to him, I started to think of the things he could do to occupy his mind and heart for the next 2.5 years; and as crazy and surreal as it seemed, the only thing I could think of was for him to teach meditation and Spiritual Sight to his fellow inmates. And that's exactly what I wrote him.
The rest is history… Or more precisely our history. Follow the unfolding story of the most unlikely research to happen right here:
