Mysticism sometimes conjures nutty images in today’s culture, but here I’m using a specific meaning: direct experience with that which transcends words, notions, or ideas. This is the kind of spiritual relationship that Jesus spoke of and practiced. I am attaching it if you care to read it. I leave it up to you as to its benefit.
I hope you understand that my feeble attempt to use verbiage to describe these wonderful things sometimes appears lacking. I ask your forgiveness for that, but rest assured my earnest desire and prayer is for you to experience it for when you do I will then know that we are bound eternally by something that transcends our trying to explain it.
That is the love I have for you.
When you head out on a new adventure, it is certainly helpful to know where the heck you are going or at least with the help of your Atlas or compass or GPS, the general direction in which you are moving, but don’t forget: the only thing that is real about your trip is the step that you are taking at this exact second. That’s all there ever really is.
…Your journey may take you a million miles; your inner self only takes only one step: the step you are in the moment. As you become more deeply aware of this one step, you realize that it already contains within it the totality of all the other steps as well as every possible twist and turn to any destination. This one step is to Oneness, and the light of that will shine Its own Light through you. This is both the purpose and fulfillment of your inner journey, the journey to Self; the journey to you.
People like you and I, though mere mortals of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we happen to live and our time position may be simply a result of DNA and/or environmental circumstances…We never cease to stand like barefoot curious children gazing at a blazing sunset before the great unknown into which we were born.
Sipping a cuppa joe on various Thanksgiving mornings, Albert Einstein and I reflected on mysteries together. He in his time with an intellect beyond mine and me in my time as I look out my soul’s plate glass window. I think of each of you as I think about Einstein. We are all in this earthly experience alone in one sense and in another, we are in this experience together.
