Do not suppose that resurrection is a fantasy or illusion.

Ordinary human existence is an illusion / spiritual death. Ressurection is a moment of enlightenment, which can happen anytime – IN THIS WORLD – in this life.

It is the realisation of what truly exists, and migration into newness.

Examine your own self, and see that you have arisen.
