to see God by means of a mystical rapture 
30th-Aug-2018 02:29 pm
It is in the ongoing death flow 2:19 PM Thursday afternoon here in west Michigan. It is a nice sunny day here where old Dutchmen smoke pipes and dream of Paradise.

Carol and I both got up around 6:30 AM Thursday morning to face it. I made a pot of coffee and cooked eggs for breakfast. After I ate my eggs I felt sick to my stomach. After breakfast I do not remember what I did. I must have messed with our main computer after breakfast and then wrote in my paper diary. I think I read this morning from a book titled, 'Seeing God: The Beatific Vision in Christian Tradition' by Hans Boersma. This morning Carol left to go down the street bring home Cora and Josie. Emily worked today and Caleb had to set up his office. While Carol was gone I made a video for my Youtube channel. I downloaded the video and then I worked outside mowing our lawn and then I mowed Caleb and Emily's lawn. I am now recovering from yard work by writing in my online diaries. In the mail this afternoon I received a book I had ordered titled, 'Havoc' a novel by Tom Kristensen Translated from the Danish by Carl Malmberg.

Right now we have Cora and Josie with us. I am out of focus so this diary entry might sound incomplete. I am still feeling weary of existence.

I suppose I will close to feel out of place among the living dead.

Does Boersma cover at all what the divine light is?

Is it created or uncreated? Is it God Himself?

Does touch on, at all, the essence v energy theological debate?

Yes in this book by Boersma he does discuss these topics-I highly recommend this books-he does lean more to the Eastern Orthodox view of energy & essence debate-Boersma wrote a book titled 'Embodiment and Virtue in Gregory of Nyssa: An Anagogical Approach'
