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.
We often have a literal conception of Jesus' return, but the spiritual-mystical realization infinitely outshines it.
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.
I suggest that Joseph realized Christ in himself in his First Vision, and I think this can be seen in many details in his accounts.
We often think that the "devil" is something or someone else, pointing fingers elsewhere, but what if we look within?
