For me being a Christian Mystic and having exerienced directly, the divine realities, which are described and hinted at in the Bible....I know the
Bible to consist of the following:
3. Observational records
5. Multi-leveled, multi layered mystical truths that are multi-dimensional in meaning the higher you progress spiritually.
Overall, the book is/was a bunch of sign posts and instructions that guided and allowed me to surpass logic, reason, faith, and specifically to
surpass the limits of words themselves.......and lead to......drum roll please...
Direct experience of God, which to me happened at 25....and has been the greatest highlight of my life. Everything else pales in comparison to this
one event....and we're all here to specifically be able to achieve this reality and help others to realize this.
THE PROBLEM: is the dogmatic/fundamentalist literalism that limits people, churches, organizations to a certain view where anything outside of this
view is the enemy. Because of this we've had wars, lynchings, slavery, fill in the blank........it goes on and on.
But, if you experience these divine realities you become a peaceful, full of love, divine optimist thats the furthest thing from wars and judgments
The best thing is, upon reaching this experience....you KNOW first hand that God is real and that when it's time to die, you simply take off your
flesh as if its an old jacket and continue on living in the next realm!!!!!!!
If the majority of us reached this spiritual state, we'd be living in a real modern day utopia, which one day will come....but first we have to go
through some really rough times, which are presently starting, before we get to that state of society.
