What Is Mystical Spirituality, or Mysticism?
- MEG Issue 1, December 2012 -
Mystical spirituality, rather than being a religion or spirituality in itself, is an individual attitude of seeking direct union with God that can be present among members of any religion or spirituality as well as unaffiliated spiritual or religious people. This attitude cuts across the lines of all religions. Christian mystics are known as Gnostics, Islamic mystics as Sufis, Judaic as Kabalarians, and in the Orient as Taoists, Buddhists, and Zen practitioners; most earth religions were at one time mystical.
Due to a universal philosophy of seeking God within by removing the ego, mystics prefer to learn from all religions and spiritualities; they generally see the four legged, the winged people, the finned people, the trees, mountains, rivers, and oceans as children of the same God, our brothers and sisters.
Mysticism generally rejects the division of Earth and people into countries, races, nations, religions, or any divisive groups. Many mystics believe that such division of the earth was done against the spirit of the Creator.
Added Note: Mystics seek unity under the Creator, not a one world government. They are also different from anarchists in that the later advocate a lack of order; mystics advocate order by the attainable unity of mind with the Universal Unifying Consciousness called by some people Great Spirit, God, Alah, YHVH, and so on.
