Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. A very readable first novel that kept me turning pages into the night!
The misperception of sexual interest
Full of twists and turns! I found some aspects a bit technical with regard to computer programming but fully understand the necessity!. I read the novel twice just to be sure I had mastered the plot fully!
Well done! There was a problem loading the comments at the moment. Showing 0 comments. Sort by: Newest Oldest. It's almost relentless. As soon as you think you might know the ending, the story applies yet another twist. From the outset, the tension builds gradually until it becomes really difficult to put down. It's hard hitting and gripping. It held me right to the end and left me wanting more. As with earlier review I couldn't help wondering how much of it was based on real events?
pewahomaci.tk:Customer reviews: Death by Misperception
I read this after meeting the author on a plane and wondered if it would be any good - seeing as it was a first novel. I shouldn't have doubted it. The only question I had in my mind after reading it was how much of it was true and how much was fiction. She says its fiction, but I still have to wonder. You'll find it difficult to put down. The suspense grips you to the end. One person found this helpful.
Now, consider this. A single wave moves through the ocean, heading towards the shore, along with all its friends. As it crashes onto the shore, it disappears. We tend to waste our precious time on earth fearing that disappearance, spend our life trying to avoid it, and invent so many stories trying to explain or deny it.
Many of our spiritual and religious teachings are designed to pacify our fear and anxiety surrounding it, to numb our curiosity with easy answers, distracting us from the obvious truth with promises of extravagant things to be revealed or acquired or experienced after death, and these theories may satisfy the mind but never the heart.
It did not go to heaven or hell. It did not go into limbo, or start another life. All of these ideas are based on a single but profound misunderstanding. When the wave crashed onto the shore, it simply dissolved back into the ocean. Because the wave was never separate from the ocean in the first place! There is only itself. From the perspective of the ocean, when the wave crashes onto the shore, nothing has happened at all. Death is a non-event. Only a dream has evaporated - the dream of separation, the illusion that there was ever a separate wave in the first place, a wave that was born, a wave that was about to die.
At the exact point of death, there is no wave to die, for there is no wave at all. Understanding this removes all fear of death itself. From the beginning, there was no separate wave. The wave was always absent as a separate entity. It was only ever the ocean moving, the ocean waving, not moving towards its destination, but always perfectly HERE. Upon what we call death, as any illusion of self-contraction falls away in the vastness of yourself, as you relax into the Home you never left, all that is lost is that which was never truly You in the first place.
All that is lost is any remaining feeling of burden. Your history, your imagined future, your beliefs, your theories, your certainties, your doubts, your fears, your regrets, your longings, your blocks, your sense of loss, your imagination of yourself and others, all dissolves clean away, leaving only that which never appeared in the first place - presence itself. You are stripped bare of all pretence, and dissolve cleanly into life. Death is pure life.

Knowing your own presence here and now — that is the key. Thoughts have come and gone, feelings have come and gone, dreams and hopes and fears have come and gone, images of past and future, beliefs, ideologies, religions, concepts of God and the devil, heaven and hell, light and dark, duality and nonduality, even life and death and the afterlife have paraded themselves for you, but what has never come and gone for you is the presence in which all of those appearances danced their dance. You have never been aware of presence coming and going, ever. You will never be aware of the loss or disappearance of presence, ever.
If you can be aware if it, if you can notice it, if you can know it, see it come or go, see it change or decay or pass, it was not really presence, it was your idea of presence. Presence is always ontologically prior to that which appears to be present. It is what we all are, what you are, and is sometimes referred to as an unlimited love without conditions that cannot die, even as the bodily attachment falls away.
In that sense, You, as in who you truly are, cannot die, and cannot experience death. All you can experience, all you can be aware of, is not death, it is life, the movement of life, the pulse and throb and flow and change of it, and in that sense even a near-death experience is not death, since it is still a happening in time or beyond time, held in the warm embrace of presence. The dying process may be painful or uncomfortable or even joyful, yes - it is in the realm of experience after all - but here we speak of death not dying, and we tell you that death is not your problem, it is never something you will have to do or prepare yourself for, it is not your concern at all.
You will simply trust and relax into what you have always been. You will let the vast intelligence of the body take over, the intelligence that knows how to breathe right now, knows how to heal, knows how to pump blood round through the veins even in deep dreamless sleep, knows how to die. Its schedule is timeless.
