Above: See Simon talk about each of the 10 skilfull attitudes in The Beautiful Life in these 10 one-minute clips. The first clip is shown above, but click here to see all 10 skilfull attitudes.

The Beautiful Life gives ten new commandments for coping with the stresses, strains and pressures of modern-day living. Looking always with the inner eye, it is a book in search of psychological truth the truth from which people are made and live. It describes the energies and textures of our life emotional, mental, visceral, spiritual and discerns the ‘sorryness and grandeur’ in all. The ten new commandments offered are ten skilful attitudes in pursuit of the beautiful life. Our past has made us, but does not define us, and we each have a genius for the future through simple attention to familiar things. The book draws on a wide tradition of human experience, and using story, illustration and comment, invites us to be alchemists for our own transformation. It is a handbook for those who know that something is always over and that something has always begun. It suggests the work of life the work beneath all other work.

The Role of Affinities and the Group-Soul by Anabela Cardoso Affinities seem to play an important role in the next world. We have touched on the subject in a previous chapter and I have discussed it in earlier publications (Cardoso, 2010, 2003). Indeed, the meaning and importance of the Group-Soul described in the mediumistic literature, e.g. the information received purportedly from the deceased Frederic Myers by Geraldine Cummins (Cummins, 2012), have been emphasized in my own contacts.
