Mysticism is the acceptance that everything cannot be logically explained.
Mysticism is an eclectic mixture of various forms of self-discovery that's primarily experimental.
Mysticism is the hidden way. It is the most difficult to discuss, because it involves the exploration of perceptual states which are difficult to describe in words.
In mysticism we deal with dreaming and the fields of perception.
A person is made up of awarenesses. All the awarenesses that have ever been our will ever be exist like barges floating in the ocean.
At the time of birth an ordering takes place. The awarenesses come together; they become specific until a person dies. At that point all those awarenesses, all that you have ever been or will ever be, go back again, into the great unknown.
In mysticism we reorder those awarenesses. We combine and recombine them endlessly. We assemble them so we can experience aspects of the universe that most people will never know.
Mysticism cuts through bullshit, and it takes you right there to the experience. Everything in your life is eventually set up as a pragmatic energy flow into the light.
Who wants to be stuck in being religious and being spiritual either? That's not freedom. You've just exchanged handcuffs for leg irons - which doesn't mean that you should avoid enlightenment.
Enlightenment has nothing to do with being spiritual. Being spiritual is just an idea -- it's another ring of perception.
The process is learning to turn your back on everything and everyone and face that immensity. And only after you've done that can you then turn around and face the world again with new, clear eyes.
Mystical power, as you know, has a whole different flavor to it. It's much more raucous at times; it's much more poignant at times. It involves more of the emotional body.
In mysticism, there's more of a sense of adventure, of camaraderie.
Your ability to use mind whatever way you choose is outrageous. Much will depend upon how intensely you approach the study and the state of mind in which you begin.
Thoughts can increase our understanding of a subject, or they can just as easily constrict or block our understanding of a subject. It very much depends upon the language we are thinking in.
Many aspects of life cannot be explained through logic or reason. The reasoning part of the mind simply doesn't have the capacity to understand the many whys and how's of being and nonbeing.
The meaning of life changes as you change dimensional planes. The way human beings perceive the world is only one simple method of seeing. There are many ways to see life. Life has many meanings, and self realization is the understanding of all this.
To have the detached eye of the occultist, to look outward, to not be so self-reflective and to learn to step through the various viewpoints of consciousness -- that we call occultism -- leads to freedom.
Reason is a terrible trap because you will be satisfied with answers. And if you are satisfied with answers, you'll never come to know what life really is.
Mysteries are not riddles. Mysteries are places to go with your mind. You go into mysteries.
Timeless awareness occurs to very few in this world, to step beyond the circle of fear. The body has created a magnificent arena of fear. We have developed ways of seeing life that exclude us from seeing life.
All physical and nonphysical things have another side, a side that is not visible to the senses or accessible to the reasoning mind, a side that can only be known and experienced intuitively by emptying one's own mind of thoughts.
When you look at a couch you don't really see the couch. You see the couch as perceived by a state of mind.
Everything has a nothingness. On the other side of physical reality, there is another world, and in that world, everything is something else.
The world is always ending and always beginning at every moment.
You can think whatever you want, you can create all the labels you choose, but the universe just is. You can come to terms with it or not. If you don't come to terms with it, we say you live in illusion.
There is no beginning and there is no end. Nothing is final. There is no absolute. There is no highest point, nor is there a lowest point. These configurations are ideas. Ideas are primitive constructs, symbolic representations, reflections in a mirror.
This solidity is not true. The apparent solidity is the delusion of the senses and of the self. Everything is made up of infinite, intelligent light.
Taking a walk isn't really taking a walk, taking a shower isn't really taking a shower, living isn't living, and dying isn't dying. It only appears to be.
No place is the same because everything is shifting always.
There's a resonance inside us, a sense of who we are. We're a multi-bodied traveler. We're an essence. We're a feeling, an awareness that has an ancient existence.
In the study of consciousness you cannot explain anything verbally. You can only allude to, point in a general direction of.
Self-discovery is a very advanced art. What we're doing basically is screwing around with what you're made up of. We're taking awarenesses, feelings, ideas and impressions and changing them.
Psychic perception is a much more efficient and accurate method of seeing and knowing reality.
There is no future and there is no past, there never has been, there never will be. You just think there is. It's not life that moves; it's awareness.
We are going to alter the structure of our beings and also totally change what we are. This is the possibility and inevitability that meditation offers us.
You can reshuffle yourself. You can make yourself into anybody you want to be.
Things that are impossible - are everyday experiences when you live in advanced states of mind. You live in a world of constant miraculous awareness.
The description of the world that most people have is very limited. They are in the fog. Once in a while a genuine insight comes through.
There are views. And what we see in a view is not necessarily what is in the view, all that is in the view. We have to separate, to some extent, the perceiver from that which is perceived or we have to lose all distinction whatsoever.
The skeptics who say it can't be done are simply in extremely limited states of mind. They can't even perceive the possibility of anybody doing something that they can't do.
Self-discovery is a process of dissolution and creation. Dissolution means envelopment in eternity. Creation is bringing into focus new awareness
We're using gradients of light as an auric measurement, a quantified auric measurement of the ascension of consciousness from the relatively sensorial, material perceptions of existence to the more refined spiritual perceptions of existence.
Theoretically, everyone's inner being knows everything. There is a part of us that is aware of all things. But that doesn't necessarily do us a whole lot of good unless we are conscious of that.
The other side is beyond knowing. You cannot know what you experience on the other side, here. Wisdom is beyond the grasp of the conscious mind.
As spirits we have always existed in a generalized form, since we are all part of the universe. As individual spirits, we have existed for a timeless time.
We are many, many selves. We're not just a finite being. The selves don't necessarily speak in words. But they are you.
We believe that we decide. We do make decisions. But the deeper decisions come from another part of our being that we're not particularly aware of yet.
Most people simply go through life. They feel that they're making choices in their lives that cause destiny to move in certain ways. I would suggest that they have no control of their lives, all their choices are really made for them.
There is a system and a flow and an organization to the structure of the universe. Just like there's a system and a flow and an organization to the human body, to atomic structures, to the elements.
To take charge of destiny means to play a very convoluted chess game on multiple levels of consciousness and existence.
You're always looking for the ultimate. It's kind of like journeying to Ixtlan. You're never going to get there, but that is no reason not to try.
We want to see the universe in its absolute, pure, naked, perfection. We want to know its wonder. We want to know the totality of ourselves. That's done in steps and degrees and not in one day.
There is only black light between the stars. It may seem that it's darkness, but it's really black light. There is no such thing as darkness. Darkness is a human concept. There's only black light between the stars.
