In truth, we are all mystics on a spiritual journey seeking unity with Intelligent Infinity, or the Divine. I always believed and felt there is something greater that cannot not be fully explained by world religions. From a religious perspective, we are told what and how to think about the divine, each religion having their own perspective. After studying various religions and belief systems I found commonality helping me in finding my own way. The discovery of Law of One and having mystical experiences were the major events that changed my life, realizing I was a mystic.
Jewish mysticism pre-dates Christian monks by six to eight centuries. Mysticism is prevalent in christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Zen, Taoism, Hinduism, Sant Mat and throughout many other cultures. In some cultures, mystics are called shamans or even soothsayers. The Nagi or three Kings associated with the birth of Jesus were astrologers or mystics.
Mystics have been responsible for some of the most impressive literature produced by their respective religions. Many have offered interpretations of Scripture, theological treatises, sermons, meditations, letters, stories, and poems. They have a passionate intensity of love for the divine and are aware of the Oneness of all. Some believe you cannot be a mystic unless you have mystical experience while others believe it begins with seeking the truth and devotion. As I said, we are all mystics to some degree and it is up to each person to pursue the greatest human ambition, to seek God or Infinite Intelligence in their own way.
A mystic can use a bridge to the metaphysical and physical worlds in many ways. We all receive signs from the divine via our guides, unique to each person. These signs can be given through our thoughts, nature, dreams, psychic abilities, numerology, discernments and many others. It is important to recognize the polarity of entities, either positive or negative, providing the message. The key is to pay attention and use your gift of discernment.
Meditation is the gateway to Intelligent Infinity which can be attained by aligning your heart and mind. Perhaps that is what Jesus meant when he said in saying 48 of the Gospel of Thomas, “Jesus said, “If two make peace with each there is a lot of misunderstanding about mysticism and varies from person to person. It is other in this one house, they will say to the mountain, ‘Move Away,’ and it will move away.”
