In subtle matters of the heart, the guardian of the riddle must speak in riddles.

T.J. Winter puts it this way in his #book on #Sufi #mystic Ghazali:

"Because of the danger of misunderstanding by those who understand only outward #words & whose hearts are still unreceptive to mystical allusions, the full doctrine of the #soul must remain veiled, to be spoken of only in the closed circles of those who will be sure to understand it in ways that cannot clash with formal #theology."

Otherness does not even exist.

For until a person has surrendered their image of a separate existence, the Holy Mosque cannot be found.

The sun can only be seen by the #light
of the sun. The more a man or woman knows,
the greater the bewilderment, the closer
to the sun the more dazzled, until a point
is reached where one no longer is.

A #mystic knows without #knowledge, without
intuition or information, without contemplation
or description or revelation. Mystics
are not themselves. They do not exist
in selves. They move as they are moved,
talk as words come, see with sight
that enters their eyes.

—Attar, #Sufi #poet 1146-1221

For years, I put all my effort into developing my spiritual awareness. Little did I know that to strengthen my intuition, I needed to honor and nurture my heart, body and soul. #spirituality #psychic #intuition #mystic #kathleenberry

God showed frequently in all the revelations that man continually performs His will and His honor everlastingly, without any ceasing.' (And what this action is was shown in the first revelation, and that on a wonderful basis: for it was shown in the operation of the soul of Our Blessed Lady Saint Mary, by truth and wisdom.)
And I hope, by the grace of the Holy Spirit, I shall say what I understood of how this should be.
Truth perceives God, and Wisdom contemplates God, and from these two comes the third, and that is a holy, wonderful delight in God, which is Love. Where Truth and Wisdom are, in truth, there is Love, truly proceeding from them both, and all are of God's creation.
For He is eternal supreme Truth, eternal supreme Wisdom, eternal supreme Love uncreated; and man's soul is a created thing in God, which has the same divine qualities except created.
And continually the soul does what it was made for: it perceives God, it contemplates God, and it loves God.
Because of this God rejoices in the creature and the creature in God, endlessly marveling. In this marveling the creature sees his God, his Lord, his Creator, so high, so great, and so good in reference to himself who is created, that scarcely does the creature seem anything at all by himself; but the clarity and the purity of truth and wisdom cause him to see and to recognize that he is created because of love, and in this love God endlessly keeps him.

"I was an overly devoted mormon throughout my life. I was a homeschooling mother to four children who are all grown now. A completely devoted mother and wife, and an entrepreneur for the past 15 years. I was a mormon."

"There was an underlining current when I began homeschooling our children. Ward members and leaders had beliefs that homeschooling was absolutely wrong!"

"My shelf really broke over the last ten years because my gifts of mysticism were magnifying. Nothing I was seeing was matching what was happening in the church. I so was sick and tired of being around people who did not think for themselves."

@22 What a remarkable response! Thank you, for your attention & erudition.🙏🏼

As a #writer, lately, I’m very interested in the idea of the #artist as #mystic and have profound respect for a thinker with spiritual dimensions (such as Dr Cornel West, more recently).

By way of #introduction to my #writing (if you’re interested) here’s a link:

I would ask if there is a #mystic based social network somewhere, but I already know the answer. Of course. And I'm guessing the only way to learn how to find it is to go on a year long journey of self discovery :)

Okay, about me. I'm a father of three mostly grown children and two never grown dogs (Havanese and Scottish Terrier), and married to a wonderful person who most of the time puts up with me. I'm an #exvangelical constant seeker of Divine Love, #mystic, and amateur theology nerd who loves to play with theology because in the end it's just a finger pointing to the moon. Some days I'm #Christian, and other days I want the whole thing to burn to the ground. My day job is in IT. He/him.
