When one is near death, more than ever, one appreciates the value of life. "Transcendental Sojourn: Arrival to One Journal" are the reflections of Liz Cosline, reflecting on her thoughts and musings after coming so close to leaving the planet seven years ago. A work of heartfelt musings and thoughts on the world that surrounds us, "Transcendental Sojourn" is a worthwhile read about the nature of life. Thank you so much, Liz!

2.       It was equally an honor to work with someone I can FEEL is living what they are speaking about!  It is so wonderful you are sharing what you have received as a gift with the rest of the world.  Keep up the great work!  God kept you here for good reason!

3.    Life is something one often takes for granted. Ask Liz, who after a near death experience, decides to really stop and embrace the full aroma life offers. She searches for that spirituality and purpose that drives us. By embracing life and staying open to the many possibilities, one can wake to create, recognize and live.

Liz speaks of a man from the third world, who lives in much destitution and hardship, yet greets her with a bright smile on his countenance. It is unbelievable how he can be so full of love when many unhappy things are going on in his life. He contributes it to a sign of respect to the other person. By reflecting the same example to others, each day can bring a different array of color and setting.

Time comes and goes, and often one does not really listen to the things around them. A beautiful sunrise or sunset, that might be our last, makes one feel a loss at not ever experiencing such again. Liz thought she might not ever see such things again, but a miracle helped her to regain her inner search to see the true beauty of things. She learns she is never alone, because the Good Lord is always extending his unconditional love. It is a step in her life well-worth the trip.

Transcendental Sojourn-Arrival to One Journal is a learning stage that opens up one's heart and permits that inner search of self. I found it held many stages in learning to grow and balance out daily living. Liz Cosline sketches her step into self-discovery to show that life has simple pleasures to offer. Her concept of learning to trust, just as a child does a parent, is glowingly reflected as one searches her heart to learn compassion. Her words touched me and gave me considerable thought. They made me rethink daily life, as well as everyone and everything that surrounds us in this encouraging read.

Favorable: easy inspiration

"Having just completed reading Miss Cosline's latest book, Transcendental Sojourn, I feel more like I have just completed a friendly, thought provoking conversation with a friend, than having read a book! The author's style is one which is straight forward, and at times intensely thought provoking, while being very down to earth and superbly reader friendly. Miss Cosline get's one to thinking, and that no doubt is her goal in sharing her personal journal thoughts.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to visit portions of their own being, which perhaps they have fallen out of touch with recently. Nicely written, at times deep, while at other times, like an off-the-cuff comment, but overall, a fine authoring achievement."

Reviewed by Lisa E. Ruedemann,

Let me tell you about Liz Cosline's new book Transcendental Sojourn. It is thought provoking…on to my thoughts……When we get older…yes older …we start reflecting on the lives we've led. It is a human thing to reflect upon our life and the place we have in the grand scheme of things. The wonder if we have contributed anything worthwhile or major to this world or at least to our small part of it. Our lives seem so short when you think of it really and over all too soon for most of us. Each of us with a personal view of what death will be and how that fits into the grand scheme of life. A few people have had the opportunity to gain insight into death that the rest of us can only conceptualize as we get closer to the reality. There are a rare few who have actually faced death and have lived to share the experience with us. Liz Cosline is one of those people who faced death and was willing to share her thoughts and views with us on the experience.

Ms. Cosline suffered a brain aneurysm one Easter out hunting eggs. An almost always fatal occurrence, however, she was one of the 1% who miraculously recovered from such a traumatizing event. She expresses her views on how her life has changed and how she now views her life and life's choices. I have read Ms Cosline's other books ( One Voice, Unexpected Knowing and Notice for Arrival - a trilogy about near death experience) and wish to share some of the insights I gathered from her journey to the brink of death, through almost death and then the life after near death. I find that her most recent book is her journey into life's meaning. She writes with a new light on life and gave me much to think about in regards to my own mortality, dreams and aspirations and where I will be after death. The book is such an easy read. Just an account of her philosophy of what life could be like living in harmony and peace, her questions to God , views on God and the place God holds in her life. The changed values and the new way she sees what is important in life. She did not tell me how to think or feel, did not preach a system of belief upon me. She just spoke in her words about her journey through life changes since nearly dying and how she now views living.

Like I said, it is seemingly simple easy reading...every time I have read it. And yes I have read it several times and each time I read it I take something different away some new thought…..a new insight to ponder. Reading this book has me reflecting on my own life, values and what life means to me...and what my death may bring...and how do I live the rest of my time here on this earth. Yes so simple yet thought provoking. Definitely a worth wile choice of must read books.~ Lisa E. Ruedemann, MS HSA
