What is Mysticism? By: David Hoffmeister
When we go on this journey a course in miracles audio, we think that we need to learn and understand a lot, that we need to understand what mysticism is. Yet, when we go into this mystical direction, the purpose is to release everything that stands in the way of receiving inner guidance and following that.
Once we start to give ourselves over to this guidance, we start to see that we were wrong about everything we thought we knew. That is what guidance is leading us to, to this happy realization of, I was wrong about all the painful judgments and beliefs about myself and everything else.
In this sense, a mystic can be described as someone who stays very relaxed in the realization of, I don’t know, and I am taken care of.
So What is Mysticism?
We can say that mysticism is devotion to God. It is a single-pointed devotion to God. When you wake up in the morning, your sole purpose is to reach eternity. That is the only purpose there is! Now you may ask, “How?”
It is by allowing miracles to come through you that you become a miracle worker. You become consistently miracle-minded; you consistently come to your right mind—the present moment and escape hatch to eternity.
When you give your heart to God and say, “Here I am Lord,” it focuses your mind like a beam of light for God.
As we come closer to the mystical Heart of Christ, we come closer to the Heart of God. By laying aside all judgment, and allowing for this simple and serene state of mind, we go beyond this world. This is a state of mind that is above the battlefield and has accepted Christ within.
There are no more words to say, just a quiet listening to the song of Heaven.
