The second point is correct. You find God within yourself, then your priorities change about knowing about things. You do not want to know what is beyond life because you come into the present. You are not worried about the past and the future, but that also you know because gradually your vision improves. You start seeing what happens after death. You see the patients coming to you and you start seeing they are spirits …
