Jewish Mysticism
For the people of that world will attain the level of Moses, our rabbi, whose soul rose above his body until his physical faculties were annihilated, and he was clothed in the Holy Spirit every moment as if his sight and hearing were only through the eye of the soul (‘ein ha-nefesh)… The body is annihilated and the soul separates from its faculties when the Holy Spirit emanates upon a person and he sees by means of vision itself when he sees Michael and Gabriel, and this is true vision and the proper hearing… Thus we have come to deal with the mysteries of prophecy (sodot ha-nevu’ah) and visions of the pious (re’iyot ha-hasidim) who see angels.
