Standing in one spot we see one picture that has infinite possibilities. Each time we make a choice, we create another reality. Perhaps not important or appropriate at the time but it shapes our lives. I would have never imagined that there would be a twist in the road that would drag me emotionally through unbearable agony – through hell; a journey that would change destiny.
Overwhelmed with the loss of my loved ones, I stumbled through life struggling for answers. I so missed them; I wanted life to be the same again. How was I going to recover? Would I ever be able to communicate with them? Could I ever be happy again? I learned that things don’t happen when we want them to happen; they happen when they’re meant to happen.
My inspirational journey culminated on the spiritual island of Patmos and subsequently on the island of Cyprus. It was then my book took flight. The visual experiences, miracles, time travel and angels were a major part of a thought-provoking soul-searching journey. I sought the meaning of life and death – praying it would lead me to happiness and peace.
Whether you agree with me or not, I learned that there is no separation of time between the past, present, and future; that there is life after death and the decomposition of the body is not all there is. Most significantly, I learned how prayer brought about life-changing events that changed the way I look at and live my life – bringing me happiness and peace.
Could my life’s journey be parallel to yours? Where this book will lead you is up to you.
I’m Efrosini Pappas, known also as Fran, but that’s a long story. I was born in Brooklyn, NY, of Greek heritage. My parents were my role models, and at an early age, I learned that communication with the spirit world is possible and to believe in dreams, although I didn’t understand all that it meant until later in life.
Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes because for those who love with their heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation. (Rumi)
Living In Eternity by Efrosini A. Pappas can be found online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Balboa Press.
My dream has been to bring the magic of Greece into the hearts of all people. Commissioning the music of Greece’s noted composer, Mikis Theodorakis, I created a half-hour DVD, Love Song To Greece, and an accompanying full-color journal of the DVD’s visual material.
Through my eyes, you will glimpse a country that’s unique and inspirational as I weave a little bit of mythology, history, geography, language … pretty much what I love about Greece, and possibly all you ever wanted to know but never asked.
I have enjoyed a fascinating career in travel, art and entertainment, and education. I consider teaching the language, traditions, music, and dance of Greece to be the most fulfilling.
