On March 20, 1839, the Prophet Joseph Smith Jr. dictated the following while incarcerated in Liberty Jail, Missouri:
The things of God are of deep import, and time and experience and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O Man, if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation, must stretch as high as the utmost Heavens, and search into and contemplate the lowest considerations of the darkest abyss, and expand upon the broad considerations of eternal expanse; he must commune with God.
The mission of this website is to explore the human mind and its relationship to God and the divine, and how we may use our minds to commune and become one with God.
