What is this Mystic’s Perspective?
Mystic: the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience (as intuition or insight)
So many of us are trapped by the world of illusion. For the Mystic this means the outside world. There is the inner and there is the outer. The Spirit and the Body, The Light and the Dark, Everything and Nothing or the Ying and the Yang. Each side, place, or positions has it’s purpose. Our life is made up of the Spirit and the Body, together they create our experience. What may seem to be complicated is quite simple.
- In my marriage I have found myself complaining about my wife. It seemed like the more I complained the more things I got to complain about.
- In my work I had a co-worker I couldn’t stand. He would make mistake after mistake and I would point them all out while he was preparing to take my position.
- In my friendships I would constantly be taken advantage of. My friends would take and take and take. I’d wait and never be offered the same.
- My life seems as if its going know where. I’m stuck!
What all these thoughts have in common is “I”. In order to find the answer to the problem of “I”, we must look inward. Most of us look at the people or circumstances of our lives and spend forever trying to change them. You ever notice the more things change, the more things stay the same? You are the answer to the life you live. The better you are the better life is.
Jesus said, “Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.” -Gospel of Thomas
