Welcome to The World of the Mystic
When asked, I sometimes describe myself as a mystic. But when I mention that, people are confused and do not know what to make of it.
Why is this?
It's because a mystic does not live from the mind. He has little interest in beliefs or concepts or mental constructs. A mystic lives from the heart and the heart cannot be understood because it is infinite, unfathomable and incomprehensible.
A mystic's task is to assist others to break through their mental constructs into what may be called higher or super consciousness. For a mystic is all in the moment and in the actions of the moment. He rarely has need for times of quiet reflection or pondering thought.
The mystic's life is solely determined by a power that he knows comes through him and not from his mind. His life is times of rest accompanied by continuous outpourings of creative action, which bring meaning to every moment both for himself and for those around him.
This action is fed by a plethora of resources. You see a mystic is wealthy in a way unimaginable to most. He has an uncanny ability to see possibility in defeat, beauty in the ugly and wonder in a simple stone. This heightened awareness means that he can find whatever he needs to accomplish any task in the world around him.
For him the law of attraction takes a whole new meaning. This power he has to draw everything he needs to himself is further amplified by his powers of perception. Where others see failure he sees opportunity. Where others see a simple object he sees just what he needs to perform the task of the immediate moment.
For the mystic the world is an endless treasure of wonder and potential. A veritable cornucopia of possibility.
A mystic does not hoard wealth and resources, because he does not need to. He plunges into society and by making himself useful to all, attracts everything he needs at precisely the time he needs it. He has no need to become a billionaire in order to feel secure. Every day he experiences that when you have the perception and pulling power of a mystic, what you need to be secure is always available.
A mystic's life is rich in possibility and it is that which makes him wealthy beyond the normal conceptions of being rich.
A mystic has no need to work hard. Working hard to achieve his aims is an anathema, because it is forced. A mystic lives a life where nothing is ever forced, where everything unfolds exactly as it needs to and where even the ugly and unwelcome become beautiful.
A mystic does not belong only to the material world. He is a very big man, because his head is in the clouds, while at the same time his feet are planted firmly on the ground. Because of this, his job and his inspiration is to bring Heaven down to Earth.
When someone describes themselves as a Christian Mystic or a Muslim Mystic, a mystic finds this hilarious, as if it were possible for the infinity of the mystic's heart to be contained or limited. A mystic lives far beyond the need to follow particular teachings. His is an inspired life with its own authority and it's an expression of his own inner revelation! That's what makes a mystic a true revolutionary. His life is a shining example of the Inside Out Revolution.
A mystic is a conundrum, within a confusion, bound up in a question. His plans are few because his future is unknown. The world of the mystic is the world of the present moment. Mindfulness is not something he practices - it is something he has become! The mystic is a law unto himself which makes him an extraordinary threat to convention. His passion is for other people and his commitment is to the planet.
To be above the level of mind is a resource, a state of being the mystic can shift into at will... To be connected and at one with Nature and spiritual Source - and all the inspiration, love, compassion and inner knowing that brings - is a different perspective, one free of attachment, free of judgment, free of fear, and free of resistance. Basically, free - with a smile!
