Continuing on the unknowable theme for another post, for the fun of it . . .
“In my father’s house are many mansions,” Jesus reportedly said, alluding, perhaps, to other dimensions outside of the material womb of the Universal Mother.
But how to get to those “mansions”?
Why, die, of course.
Many people who have died and were resuscitated have reported that they had found themselves travelling through a tunnel toward a bright light, and when they emerged into that light, they felt soooo blissful — and why the hell did doctors bring them back, anyway!
So, perhaps life here is simply a dream during a gestation period in Mother Universe’s womb, and we will only be truly born when we shed our mortal coils and emerge from the material world. Yes, sure, we might eventually decide to return here, to jump into the pool or down a rabbit hole, and come back to this surreal material world or another like it. But for a while at least, we will be outside of the womb . . .
And round and round we go . . .
Yes, many spiritual systems share similar beliefs. Many of us simply (with emphasis on “simply”) smile as science slowly and methodically expends a lot of energy and money to prove what we feel can be known by listening to the voice of the silence . . .
