A prayer for Mormonism, and for Mormons.
Religious history often depicts temples as sacred places where God is present and is known. But what kind of temple?
The mind-body problem has vexed philosophers and scientists for ages. How do these two relate? Mysticism may hold a key to penetrating the problem to its source.
Transcending dualism back to the nondual unity of the One, of the Singularity, is something which we may approach from scientific, philosophical, and mystical perspectives.
Consciousness may be the "inner" experiential (spiritual) side of the "outer" material (physical) cosmos, these being two irreducible aspects of One thing.
We know that these two are equivalent, and actually make up what we are. Could this have something to do with the One?
Is the body an essential part of our true Self? Or is it like a temporary temple for the Divine to live?
This is my response to a recent video produced by the LDS Church on the nature of God. My reinterpretation moves away from the supernatural dualistic interpretation, towards a more immanent nondualistic interpretation of the Divine.
God does not have to be at odds with what we learn from science. We need to reinterpret our ideas of God from direct mystical experience, and I think we'll find our science and spirituality are One.
Did Jesus come back from the dead, or should we look deeper for the truth of resurrection?
