Michael Laitman, On Quora: “How would you describe a divine experience?“
First of all, a divine experience is not a mystical or religious experience.
A divine experience takes place when we connect with each other and sense the general system of nature. It is an experience in which we feel the so-called “souls,” i.e. the parts that piece together the “puzzle” of this system, and which make it as one. We feel the wholeness and perfection of our connection when we connect into a single body.
By connecting with each other, we rise above our nature, above this world where we sense reality in a detached and contradicting way, and enter a different reality, the so-called “upper world” where we are all interconnected.
The divine experience of the upper world is one of eternal life because we are then no longer detached from each other, but we complement each other. The entire system then lives and breathes as a life of eternity and perfection, which is how we experience it. Accordingly, our entire life is given to us so that we transcend our limited corporeal experience, and enter the divine spiritual experience, where we sense complete fulfillment, eternity and perfection.
