I had a great conversation a few weeks ago on my friend's podcast.
This film has many wonderful mystical themes on the nature of the soul, the afterlife, premortality, and the meaning of life.
It is not something that happens sometime in the future, long after our death, but something which we already are that we may come to realize right now.
Is there no one and nothing else out there that we can feel community with? Perhaps we can, with literally every being and every thing.
What is the nature of existence beyond our mortal life? Do we have anything to do with it? Yes, very much so.
Many people want to reduce our life and consciousness to the physical brain today, but I think we can go much deeper to the Source of our Life and all things.
The answer may be found in the question, in the identification of the "I." Who we think we are and who we really are affects how we consider life after death, and what we will thus "feel" there.
A new translation of Jesus' words about marriage and the resurrection.
The Son's decisions and power to act come from the Father, the Source, the One.
Nihilism is a philosophy that says that life is meaningless. It says there is no objective meaning, intrinsic value, or purpose in life. What does mysticism and the mystical experience say about that?
