Mysticism can be defined as a direct, immediate
(and unmediated) experience of the presence of God. We may be in error at
including the 'unmediated' term here but we need to specifically warn
against the false notion that drugs and magic potions can buy this holy
Mystical awareness comes to us after many years of
learning how to tune our spirits and souls to resonate at the level of love
which is God=s Internet or radio channel for us. Once we are tuned in we
experience God=s communication with us, individually, directly, immediately.
The ensuing rapture is because of the awe, the immensity of the experience,
which falls outside of the ambit of time. We are nurtured, improved, taught,
enriched, through these age long moments.
The Saviour our Lord is our intermediary to the
Energies of God. Through mystical contact with us he teaches us, raises us
up, strengthens us to be able to one day receive the Baptism of Light
directly from Heaven itself. This mystical school is a most necessary
prerequisite to prepare us for the Flood of Love that will fill our being
and clothe us in total Light. Without the Saviour's mystical mediation
surely it will be like lightning infused into our 56k modems. Yesu is our
modem (with built-in inline voltage regulator) to Reality. We need the Lord.
He walked the Way and he prepared himself for the Light, which he gained and
now radiates to us. Without him...we would have to go the Way alone.
