In Craig's defense, (though I'm not a big fan of this particular teaching) Craig's assertion that the six realms are visible right here in front of us is fairly common. Personally I don't think the Buddha would have gone to such lengths to describe the realms if he was only speaking metaphorically, but if it's useful to someone to look at it that way, I say go for it. If it's helpful.

Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

Doesn't 'wise attention in the present moment' just mean be mindful?
