I am a mystic. I never fully understood the meaning of the word until recently. It always rang in my mind as something of magic–maybe even a little dark in its meaning.
I heard the Sufi teacher, Llewellyn Vaughn Lee, define a mystic as: someone who wants to completely lose themselves in God until there is only that divine consciousness, being, oneness–no separation.
I like that.
Or, the definition that suits me precisely at this time in my life is: a person who perceives and comprehends divine mysteries.
Most people have a different idea of what a “mystic” is. I know I did. Simply hearing these definitions made me feel like I belonged to it and that felt great.
I Am A Mystic!
I perceive and comprehend so many mystical experiences almost on a daily basis. I yearn for them and when I don’t have one in a day, I remind myself to let go long enough for the next one to happen.
Yesterday, as I waited at a light, I watched the people crossing the street. A good-looking guy caught my eye but he had a snarly kind of frown on his face.
I told myself not to judge too quickly. Maybe he was in his head thinking about a challenging situation. Who knows, he may be very spiritual and sweet.
Then, I heard Michael Beckwith’s voice in my mind, “see with the eye behind the eye, feel with the heart behind the heart…”
I realized my music wasn’t on the whole time I’d been in the car– I love my Michael Beckwith Transcendance CD (http://naturegirltara.wordpress.com/products-i-highly-recommend/)
As I looked down at my phone, the time said 11:11. I turned on the power for the CD and the words that came out were, “see with the eye behind the eye, feel with the heart behind the heart.”
That is a mystical experience–magical, perfect timing!
You may say, “that’s just a coincidence, and what’s the big deal.” Well, I claim it as a bright, synchronistic event of today. Magic and miracles abound! When we can witness the smallest mysteries, bigger and more amazing mysteries are on the way! Trust me, I have big stories that unfold synchronistically, but to share them all would be like reading a book!
This happened to me this morning. I was dreaming, dreaming about my former husband. I don’t remember any specifics just that his energy was in my dream–it felt very comforting.
All of a sudden, my Bose radio alarm (which I’ve never set and don’t even know how to set) started playing the song, “Lovesong” by The Cure…”I will always love you…however near or far, I will always love you.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62Kwhe2Ng0w)
It was the perfect song to put music to how I was feeling. Feeling that no matter how far apart we are now, I will always love him and I know the feeling is mutual. What we had was pure, unconditional love. Unfortunately, we allowed complacency and rigidity to take hold of us. We stopped growing and took each other for granted.
That doesn’t mean we can’t always love someone. We’re friends. He’s the person who has known me the longest (other than my best friend growing up and my siblings).
There are no nasty, small-minded words between us.
Anyway, the way the dream and the music met was perfect.
That is a mystical experience.
I am a mystic. I see and feel mysterious and magical manifestations that the Universe is conspiring on my behalf!
It’s fun noticing.
