A mystical experience of a boy in 1939 Wisconsin remarkably resembles many other such "First Vision" experiences in history.
A new translation of Jesus' words about marriage and the resurrection.
I suggest that unique waves never return, but rather the ocean continues waving. The ocean is waving in you now.
Did we live before this life? Many religions say so, secular minds often say no, but could there be validity to both?
Might our universe be the ongoing unfolding of a black (white) hole Singularity, or One? And might we be that One reflecting on its Self?
When the finite body dies, is that the end of our person, or do we continue on? Yes and no.
Did Jesus come back from the dead, or should we look deeper for the truth of resurrection?
I think that Christianity may have conflated Jesus's mystical experience of an ego death, perhaps at the time of his baptism when the "heavens opened," in which his individual psychological self "died" and he was was "reborn" of Spirit, or "raised up" (resurrected) to his identity in Christ consciousness (a consciousness of nondual union in God/Reality), with his biological death on the cross. These two deaths seem to have been conflated at some point, resulting in a supernatural conception of the resurrection.
An addition to the BHT, containing the earliest account of the post-resurrection appearances of Christ in the New Testament, where Paul describes his witness of the resurrection and what it means to be resurrected into Christ consciousness. This seems to be an excellent summary of the Christian Gospel, or "good news," but it is something which I think we've generally misunderstood in Christianity for centuries. I feel that this is one of the most important translations of the BHT that I have been given the Grace to work out yet—yet not I. I was in tears by the end.
There are stories, legends, mythologies, folklore, traditions, histories, scriptures, and texts from all around the world which tell us of humans who have reached the stature of the gods. They have, in essence, become "a god." Some recognizable examples are people such as Jesus, Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha), and Muhammad. The process that these went through has been called theosis, deification, divinization, realization, awakening, and enlightenment. What does it mean to become or be "a god"?
