Pinched from David Chaim Smith’s FB feed:
“A material universe appears in the minds of beings, and because of prior associative habits, the mental vision is assumed to be real and true. While it is certainly true that the vision appears, its meaning is in question. A mind that has succumbed to conventional associative habituation unquestioningly accepts that finite material objects exist, and they are perceived by the nervous system of a separate autonomous subject.
“What is most radical about mystical wisdom is the assertion that the mind cannot be reduced to the activity of an individual physical brain or its habits, and awareness is endemic to the ground of En Sof. Once this is understood (at least intellectually) we can consider how variation appears without ever departing from or diminishing the openness of En Sof. From this understanding, contemplation can be cultivated and the vision of Eden can be fully lived out.”
