Here are two excerpts I've seen online. There is no name listed for the book that they are from, but it sounds like it is interesting.
1. The priest said, â€œ...A person with higher spiritual consciousness can help those they love to raise their own levels of awareness. In fact, it is their karmaâ€”a sort of spiritual duty.â€
â€œIâ€™d like to save the world,â€ said Jane, â€œbut I donâ€™t mind just saving Tom.â€
The priest started to chuckle again. Even the crystals looked like they were smiling.
â€œNow we must get serious,â€ said the priest. â€œIt is time for you to learn to use the crystals so that you can return to the shuttle and eventually get back to earth to perform a very important mission.â€
â€œHow will we get the shuttle back up?â€ asked Tom, â€œI havenâ€™t a clue about what to do.â€
â€œThatâ€™s easy,â€ said the priest. â€œAll of us will concentrate deeply and send a telepathic message to Houston. Then someone there will get the idea about where to look for you.â€
â€œNow Iâ€™ve heard of everything,â€ said Tom. â€œWith our luck the message will be picked up by the janitorial staff instead of the men at the controls.â€ Jane was not amused by Tomâ€™s remark. She grimaced and turned away from him in embarrassment.
â€œMeditating with the crystals can be difficult for some people,â€ continued the priest. â€œCollective meditation is even harder. First I must teach you and Jane to meditate together.â€
â€œThat sounds sexy,â€ quipped Tom. â€œCan we go off to another room and practice?"
â€œSorry Tom, there is no sex involved in meditation although good sex is a matter of the mind. Actually meditation really helps both partners to have a positive sexual experience.â€
â€œTell that to Dr. Ruth Westheimer,â€ said Jane.
2. "On the fourth day of their visit, to the great shock of the Supranational Council, Amaya was found murdered in his hotel room. Then, on the very next morning, the unbelievable occurred. Barzak was run over by a car going almost 100 miles per hour on a country road in Russia. He hadnâ€™t even a remote chance at survival because the vehicle had gunned down its gas pedal and was heading directly for him when he was hitâ€¦.
Back in the United States, especially along the Atlantic Coast, things were going from bad to worse. During a ten day period, more than 100,000 people died in Boston of a horrifying and debilitating viral disease that ate up the dermal and sub-dermal layers of the skin, causing instant death. In the State of Maine, 50,000 people had to leave work for an extended time period due toâ€¦mind-boggling headaches. To make matters even worse, it became necessary to close schools in New York for over a month."
