Do any of you ever feel like you are looking at the physical realm from the spiritual instead of the other way around? Like you are already seated with Christ in another dimension or that you really have a bit of the mind of Christ? I don't mean just being lifted up in prayer or a moment here or there but do you feel as if you are kind of transfered over into the other realm and are seeing this world of flesh as a vapor.
hmmmm. I don't know, CP. I do have a certain "view" but I don't think this is what you're talking about, but I'll share it anyway. I kind of see this world, as a sea. The bottom of the sea is very dark and murky, full of all sorts of sea plants that you can get all tangled up in. There are beams of some sort of light always shining down that you swim into and out of, sometimes we swim up towards
the source of the light. But then...the sea plants kind of curl around us, and we turn back around and swim back down towards the murkiness. This is life. And it repeats itself. Everyone has a different experience. As we swim up higher and higher towards the surface, towards the source of the light, the water becomes just cloudy as opposed to murky, and the sea plants are less dense, giving you more freedom to move around. It also becomes brighter and brighter as you swim to the surface, allowing you to see more. When you break through the surface of the water, you can finally BREATHE! and everything is CLEAR! and bright and you realize there is a whole other WORLD! And the sun (son) is shining and everything is just so clear and you can hardly believe it... who KNEW this other world was available?!
So you're just up there treading water, part of you is out of the water looking up at the sun (son) and feeling the glorious warmth on your face and just in AWE that this other world really exists! But part of you is still in the sea. One day your boat will arrive and will take you to the shores and you will be removed from this "sea" altogether. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea
That's kind of how I feel... like part of me IS in another dimension, but at the same time I feel the waters in the sea. Does that make any sense? It's like keeping your eye on the sun (son) but also simultaneously being aware that you are still in the sea... you are not yet on the shore. But you can EXPERIENCE part of the shore, because you can SEE it. I have kind of a weird way of seeing things sometimes and it's not always easy to put into words..
Anyway, that's probably not what you were talking about... but it did make me think of my "sea" picture.
