Mike can you describe in a little more detail the orthodox concept of Heaven and Hell as you have summarized in your communication:
>"Some Orthodox Christian fathers have explained heaven and hell toHow does this concept differ or agree with the modern "conscious" movement?
>ultimately be the same thing: a reckoning with reality. As some
>have been decieved by the devil, they will appose ultimate reality
>and experience an unrelenting fire. For those whose hearts yearn
>for mercy, they will experience the burning light of God; as our
>imperfections are burned away, we are embraced by the same light.
>This is unity with God. This is the true "Shayno wa Shlomo." "
If you can direct us to some easy accessible references (like on the web) that also will be useful for our further study.
