Some think we have to qualify for God's Love, that it is something God only gives through religious obedience. Mysticism says not quite.
A translation of Joseph Smith's insights, about the power of spiritual influence, and how it can easily be lost by ego.
I suggest that details in the accounts show that Joseph Smith experienced theosis or divinization in the First Vision, realizing his Oneness in God, or Christ living in him.
We seem to often think that Jesus always knew perfectly that he was One in God, and that this realization never wavered his entire life. But did it?

Oneness does not mean we must all become the same, but rather, that we have all manifested from the One, and it is in our differences that Beauty may be expressed.
