Another Bloody Retreat: Abbot Peter’s desert years by Simon Parke
Another Bloody Retreat

  The Illusion of the Summerland by Paul Beard
Living on earth is bound up with a great deal of illusion, of Maya. William Blake puts it forcibly: “Do what you will, this life's a fiction and is made up of contradiction.” As we have seen, such a state of affairs by no means disappears at death. Since humans bring many of their former illusions with them, their insight into the events which now present themselves must be expected also to be tangled up with their limitations. Nevertheless, we are able on earth, even when prey to a good deal of such illusion, to achieve a degree of spiritual growth. After death, as we shall see in later chapters, the situation is similar.

The story involved an actual ship named the Majestic, captained by Edward J. Smith, who later captained the "Titanic."

The woman wasn’t a close friend and R hadn’t seen her for some time. She said the woman was serene and smiling and she sensed she was dead. (In the physical sense)
