in response to reader comment: What it's all about

"...Everything is a part of 'God'. Ultimately , looked at in this way, - only 'God' exists. The good and the bad, the smallest processes in the infinitude of the nano world in each atom and the largest galactic clusters and all the spaces in between. It is everything.Nothing can exist outside of the 'Ground of Being'...."

"I don't agree with much anything you've said here. I perceive that you're speculating WAY too much."

Did you agree with the paragraph above though?

"..They're just forces, making us think we are "touching" something "solid". "

Yes - the spooky world of reality - where ultimately nothing is solid - and subatomic particles existing in multiple places at once.

"Our brains are enclosed, dark spaces, yet inside them, we imagine things like light and color."

An astonishing fact - we recreate the whole thing in our heads in real time in colour,

"Peter could come and go from his jail cell; and when Jesus beckoned to him, he could walk on water. Nearly all the time, though, we are shackled in our minds, i.e. in our spirits; but when we put off this physical reality, i.e. when we die, we will be free from such things.."

Which to me suggests that there is the potentiality for human beings to do astounding things when fully spiritually (for want of a better word) awakened. And you don't have to be no longer in a body for that to happen.
