  • Discard, abandon and realize (2017)

    Few words are totally adequate when writing about mysticism. These essays say that you must discard your ego and abandon your individuality to realize the divine. What does that mean and is it possible? There may be better verbs, but let us just examine these three. The ego became your personal identity...

  • Finding the soul (2017)

    Many people sought their soul, their true self, their innermost being. Most others, of course, have not even tried. Mystics, when beginning their quest, searched to no avail until they accepted that it is here and now. It was so obvious that they had overlooked it. You cannot find the soul; it is not...

  • A little of this, a little of that (2017)

    Too many devotees jump from one religion to another, alternate from going it alone to studying with a spiritual teacher, and/or move from one guru to the next in search of the one true way. There is no “one true way”; there are now about seven billion ways . You must probe the depths of your inner self;...

  • A divine formula? (2017)

    Albert Einstein revolutionized physics with his Special Theory of Relativity. His formula, E=mc², states that energy equals mass at the speed of light squared. Perhaps we can reinterpret that formula to help clarify the correlation between divine Essence, matter and consciousness: E=mcf(x). Unlike the...

  • Upside down (2017)

    An “upside” of this life might be a “downside” for mysticism. Some ideals that many people were taught are to be independent, to gain self-confidence and be self-sufficient. Yet, the very independence of our individuality, augmented with assuredness and autonomy, can minimize our interdependence on one...

  • Love and knowledge (2017)

    Seekers of spiritual knowledge might ask, “What’s love got to do with it?” Devotees of devotion reply, “Divine love is everything.” In mystical “marriage,” divine union, you can’t have one without the other. Divine Love and divine Truth are One in divine Reality. In Sufism of Islam, knowledge is the...

  • Feel good - do good (2017)

    When we feel good—healthy, happy, successful—we are then more likely to do good for other people. Similarly, when we do good for others it frequently makes us feel good. That should not be the primary reason for helping, even if it often is an aftereffect. Both psychotherapists and religions agree that...

  • Some differences (2017)

    Mystics’ experiences may be quite similar, still their techniques and interpretations varied. Reading about mysticism in Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, the Kabbalah of Judaism, and Sufism of Islam you will find many differences. In this life, people differ. Schools of mysticism in each religion recognized...

  • The big picture (2017)

    We often bring our own baggage to this life’s experiences and are so concerned with how we appear that we cannot clearly observe what is directly in front of us, nor what is happening all around us. Some call this tunnel vision; mystics call it spiritual ignorance. When you gaze at life with dark glasses...
