What is religious experience for? Why is it a part of our human evolution and biology? The religious scholar and author of the book God: A Human History, Reza Aslan, says in the video below:
I have considered forming a discussion group of some kind where we can regularly talk about these things, face-to-face, and commune-contemplate-meditate together regularly with like-minded people. Technology being what it is today, we can each do this from wherever we may be anywhere in the world as if we were all sitting together in the same living room!
I don't think so. But I think it is deeply, absolutely, universally Real. Let me explain.
These quotes from Albert Einstein, the preeminent theoretical physicist, show that he was also a seer and mystic, who sought out the deepest truths in the universe, through his mind.
My experience of stillness, or transcendental consciousness, has become vast and universal, often blazing with intensely brilliant, even blinding, light. Words cannot even begin to describe the intensity of bliss and the tenderness of emotions that not only swell in my heart, but penetrate into every pore of my being. Is this an experience of God?
