After his son was murdered at the age of 23, Matthew learned how to channel and communicate with him. Through messages from his son, Jordan, he shares that the love between all souls continues in the afterlife. Matthew states that love is what connects everything. The purpose of life is to learn how to love in the face of pain. While much of what we experience in life is impermanent, the soul, consciousness, and love continue. He offers ways to keep and hold onto love in our eternally changing environment. He provides methods and meditations on how to choose love and turn toward the relationship, when we may be tempted to be judgmental or turn away.
