Practical Mystics:

Celebrate our connectedness to Divine Energy.

Find peace and joy in our daily life.

Honor and love ourselves and the earth equally.

Celebrate our connectedness to our inner life.

Care and protect our True Self/Child Within.

Treat our physical body as sacred.

Enjoy being in our bodies.

Thrive on direct experience.

Experience reverence in infinite variety.

Are passionate and faithful in all of our relationships.

Are at our most powerful in compassionate service.

Have healthy boundaries and limits, yet…

Enjoy and thrive on boundlessness and unity.

A Mystic is someone who relates to the universe in direct experiential communion, through the soul, or the “Child Within.” There is a direct knowledge of reality, and most of our journey leads to this reality. If we can apply this relationship every day in our personal life, we will likely feel the presence of “Grace.”

Our journey of psycho-spiritual growth may peak in the experience of this communion. The challenge is to keep our feet firmly planted, to live in both worlds, and bring the attributes of spirit here while at the same time, functioning here, taking acare of ourselves, paying the bills.

To achieve this balance, we can live by our own inner laws rather than outer pressures, to operate in this world, but not be of it.

The above caharacteristics reflect my own experience and that of people I have known and assisted on their journey.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    However imagine if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    video clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.
    Great blog!
