A Quote by Hafiz on sufi, sufism, mystic, persia, whirling, and dervish


Even after all this time,
the sun never says to the earth,"You owe me."
Look what happens with a love like that.
It lights the whole sky.

A Quote by Elysha on accountability, advaita, adyashanti, apocalypse, authenticity, awakening, awareness, beauty, behaviour, being, bible, biology, bliss, buddha, buddhism, catholic, cessation, changes, christ, christian, clarity, communication, concepts

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by David R. Hawkins on mystic, ego, and self

Q: What is meant by the term "mystic"?

A: The mystic knows, experiences, and identifies the Self as both context and content, that is, context is the content.  The content of the ego is transitory and a product of perception and, like a movie, it has no independent existence.  The content of perception is an automatic byproduct of positionality and goes hand in hand with the creation of the illusions of perception.  Science is the authority of the linear domain and the Newtonian paradigm; the mystic is the authority of the nonlinear domain.

A Quote by Jan van Ruusbroec on mystic, contemplative, god, food, eating, union, apophatic, and jesus

If above all things we would taste God, and feel eternal life in ourselves, we must go forth into God with our feeling, above reason; and there we must abide, onefold, empty of ourselves, and free from images, lifted up by love into the simple bareness of our intelligence.

A Quote by Mevlana Jelalu'ddin Rumi on rumi, thinking, smoke, fire, mystic, and core

Thinking gives off smoke to prove the existence of fire. A mystic sits inside the burning. There are wonderful shapes in rising smoke that imagination loves to watch. But it's a mistake to leave the fire for that filmy sight. Stay here at the flame's core.

A Quote by Walter Russell on mystic, genius, cosmic, consciousness, mind, god, bible, center, omniscience, inspiration, knowledge, cosmoc, illumination, jesus, light, spirit, mankind, goal, journey, and man

Beyond the genius is the mystic.
The mystic is one who has attained cosmic consciousness by a complete severance of the seats of consciousness and sensation. He is then almost totally unaware of his body and is totally aware of the Light of God centering him. Omniscience comes to him in that timeless blinding flash of light which is characteristic of a complete severance. This experience was described in the illumination of St. Paul. Every timeless flash of intense inspiration which comes to any man is a partial illumination, for inspiration is the manner in which new knowledge comes to man from the cosmos.
Of all mystics, Jesus was the outstanding example of all time. He was the only One in all history to have known complete cosmic-conscious unity with God.
The Bible refers to cosmic-conscious experience as “the illumination” or “being in the Light” or “in the Spirit.”
In all history less than forty cases of partial cosmic consciousness are known, and probably not more that three of these anywhere nearly approached the complete state of illumination experienced by the Nazarene.
Cosmic Consciousness is the ultimate goal of all mankind. All will know it before the long journey of man is finished, but there are many in this new age just dawning who are ready for it in part, if not fully.
Many desire it fully, but it is best that it come bit by bit for the complete severance is very dangerous. The ecstasy of this supreme experience is so great that one does not wish to come back. The power of severance of soul from body is within easy accomplishment, but to step back into the body is very difficult.

A Quote by Caroline Myss on mystic, highest potential, transformation, epowerment, psyche, service, guidance, reflection, and community

We are living at a time of great transformation. The spiritual awakening that began in the 1960s needs to mature to its next level, which is a deepening into devotion to a mystical practice while remaining an effective force in the world. And by that I mean remaining in your skin, in your role as who you are. Mystics knew how to channel grace through prayer and they knew the power of that. They knew how to receive guidance through reflection and contemplation; they knew how to share the gift of illumination with each other. These are great gifts of life and profound grace that we are capable of providing for each other and the world. This is what it means to be a mystic without a monastery. You make a commitment to your own interior illumination and through that discover the “sacred” part of your “contract” and the true meaning of your highest potential.

A Quote by James Ray on mystic, practical mystic, and law of attraction

When you think of a “mystic,” you probably envision someone who has completely given up the joys and pleasures of earth. In many (if not most) cases, our society has faulty logic regarding what it means to be “spiritual.” We often think it means you have to wear white robes, burn lots of sage, and eat legumes. While this may be one form of spirituality, it’s certainly not the only form.

If you want to wear white robes and chant, that’s fine, but you can just as well wear Armani and listen to U2 if you prefer (and it’s much more fashionable in Western society).

I contend that the time has come to develop what I call “integrated spiritual masters.” These are individuals that have a full-on experience of all levels of life spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and yes… physically. In other words they can soar into the realms of the mystic and yet still keep their feet in the sand.

A Quote by Nivrutti on infidel, god, self, and mystic

I believe the word "infidel" is not particular to any religion.  I believe we are all created in the image of God, in fact, we are all God, or at one with God, at our deepest core essence.  I think "infidel" refers to one who does not believe that God is none other than the Self. The "infidel" is the individual personality who identifies with the body and thoughts and not the Divine Indweller.  Therefore we are all "infidels" save the sacred few who have transcended the notion of the limited self.  The ancient mystics of all tradtitions have said this.
