    “The veil thinning for me means a kind of a unification of our dimension and the higher subtle dimensions. We could also call this the unification between the internal world and the external world.”

    As I mentioned once before I think, according to esoteric Ismaili literature (a spiritual path within Shia Islam), the world operates on cyclical…[Read more]

    Love, I love how you said: “The veil is thinning at this time in our cosmos and between the dimensions”. Can you speak more about this thinning of the veil?

    This esoteric wisdom may be hidden in a short verse of the Qur’an, which most usually think refers to the end of the physical world, but in fact, may be about the coming (and now here) cycle…[Read more]

    Over the past few weeks, I have seen the letters JFK constantly, on license plates.

    In the esoteric Islamic theosophical path of Ismailism, there is literature on three “beings” of the spiritual world known as Jadd (good fortune), Fath (opening), and Khayal (imagination). The “scriptural” names for these 3 are the angels:  Israfil or Raphael…[Read more]

    you wrote: “”made me wonder how beautifully we have been created.” That made me think of what if the world we lived in didn’t have such a thing as the phenomenon of “lightning”, flashing light in the sky, manifesting from out of nowhere? Or what if there was no thunder? Loud noise, again, from out of the invisible realm? If these things did not…[Read more]

  • 🙁 Rick and Morty not available to stream on Netflix USA…

    sokay, I decided to bite the bullet and continue with Sense8 season two…and my luck, midway though episode 1 of season 2, they have the indian dude whistling the same damn song! (he performed it for the girl he is in love with in season 1). The song is about seeing God in your beloved,…[Read more]

    That is an interesting post, and it totally resonates with me. I do believe in the historicity of the exoteric (i.e. visible or apparent) Crucifixion of Jesus. I also believe this exoteric event served as a symbol and sign for those who had/have awakened their inner eye or eye of the heart for an esoteric (i.e. hidden, inner) spiritual reality;…[Read more]

  • The plot of Heroes is designed to be similar to the stories of comic books with small story arcs built into the series’ larger story arc plot. Each season of Heroes is designed to involve ordinary people who discover extraordinary super powers, and how these abilities take effect in the character’s daily lives.

    I think you’d like Sense8 better…[Read more]

    The Bible (and other Revealed Scriptures) is considered the Word of God. Jesus Himself, is also The Living Word of God. If one can “find Christ” in one’s soul, by giving birth to the Word of God within one’s soul, which can be done by spiritual intimacy with the Words of Scripture – and by this I don’t mean just simply memorizing the Scriptures…[Read more]

    Robert J Dobie explains how giving birth to the Word of God within the soul of the interpreter was of great importance to the Christian mystic Mesiter Eckhart:

    “Central to Eckhart’s interpretation of Scripture is the birth of the Son in the soul. For Eckhart, all interpretative activity aims at cracking the “outer shell” of the text to reveal its…[Read more]

    In a sense it is like alchemy and it is an alchemical process, provided that it is not purely rational exegesis or simple allegorical reading. Spiritual or esoteric exegesis involves total sincerity and humility before the Divinely Reveled symbols (be this in the form of Scripture or Creation = Living Book of God). It also involves total…[Read more]

  • Yes Jatin, thanks. Its a great show. I don’t want it to end. Sense8 is like that too. I haven’t seen the second season yet… I have a love/hate relationship with that show as it reminds me of someone from my past that I can’t let go of…eventually I’ll have to watch season 2. Interestingly, there is an indian character (girl) on the show, and to…[Read more]

    :O) Glad you liked it. The word and process of ta’wil is pretty cool. The exact meaning is the “act of taking a thing back to its origin”, hence spiritual hermeneutics or deciphering, which results in a ascension or resurrection of meaning and understanding. This hermeneutics doesn’t operate on just Scripture – though indeed the Divinely Revealed…[Read more]

    Excerpt from The Garden of Truth by Seyyed Hossein Nasr,

    The goal of the spiritual life is to be able to lift up the veil of outwardness so as to behold the inward and subsequently come to know the outward in light of the inward. Spiritual realization enables us to see the outwardly invisible within the visible. It makes possible the journey…[Read more]

  • Jatin Kaura, thanks for mentioning the show The OA. I Just started it, based on your mention, and found my new show to binge.

  • A lot of Muslim mystics and theosophers talk about Imagination (“khayal” in arabic and persian – BTW, I changed my birth name after learning more about the word “khayal” back around 2001). Not only do some of them see created existence itself as “imaginal” (i.e. in image form and having an “intermediate” status: not totally light not totally dark,…[Read more]
