Are there any other mystics on this site? What makes you a mystic? I'll start.

First, a couple definitions...


mys·ti·cism
[ˈmistəˌsizəm]

NOUN
belief that union with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or the spiritual apprehension of knowledge inaccessible to the intellect, may be attained through contemplation and self-surrender.

mys·tic
[ˈmistik]

NOUN
a person who seeks by contemplation and self-surrender to obtain unity with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or who believes in the spiritual apprehension of truths that are beyond the intellect.


These other things make me a rare mystic:

I've experienced time missing for at least ten times at this point. What happened? From what I can tell is that the most real me absorbed me (the less real me, not my physical earthling body though) and then put me back here in my physical earthling body.

I've experienced the mystical connection with my twin flame I met once as she was one of her most good-looking physical forms. Who was she truly? My goddess. My wife. My Siamese fraternal twin sister based on god and goddess standards.

I believe that the absolute is the most real you as opposed to this less real you reading this right now.

I believe that the absorption gives the returned you a mystical experience of having missing time to this reality.

I believe that ultimate reality is the final orgasmic marital reality with your twin flame.

I guess I would qualify as a Mystic. an answer to a question I ask just pops into my head out of nowhere. I ask the earth's collective consciousness many different questions. She is always right, I just have to study to understand why the answers are right. Half of what we consider real is not real, we are conditioned to believe it is though. It has been going on for thousands of years, many people could not even comprehend the truth if it was laid out in front of them

I’d say a mystic probably isn’t concerned with the label.

The more one learns, ideally the more one realizes they don’t know.. sort of thing.



A master is still a student.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus made me a mystic. Converted me from the legalism of Protestantism.

Love, as both a noun and a verb, changes your existence. Not just your actions or identity. Though I am obviously Catholic, I do see echoes of the divine love in atheists and other religions. Who am I to judge their existence in and with love?

The ability to say something meaningless with deep conviction and seriousness?

Consider this small round stone.

If you can snatch it from my hand, I won't have to discard it myself.

In this, you see, you are becoming...

... the garbage collector of the universe. Consider and weep that you are to blame for the downfall of your own cosmic potential.

Feel free to divest yourself of the restrictive encumbrance of personal possessions. We accept most credit cards.

By the definition you gave, I guess I could be called a mystic of sorts. I believe that my faith in Christ has put me in union with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Per Joshua 1:8, I meditate/contemplate on the scriptures daily. I try my best to surrender myself to the will of God, taking up my cross daily.

Personally, I always thought of mysticism as a self constructed religion of abstractions. That's the impression I get from other self proclaimed mystics.

After someone gets the label of 'mystic', perhaps we could have a contest for the most mysticalist?

Maybe the 'declared' mystic, could get a nice regulation label, but the most mysticalist: could get a super-duper, special-edition, deluxe, gold-outlines-on-the-letters, larger, much-better; label?

"The One who knows does not type. The One who types does not know..." The Tao updated to reflect the changing mode of communicating.

The absolute ONLY "truth" You can type is "I AM" then EVERY THING after that is subjective. Something as simple as the color "blue" ..

I got this from ATS™ member 'Nothin' and it explains it pretty well, in fact, "Brad, meet hammer" especially the part where a real fan of Philosophy would NEVER teach Philosophy.

I am not a mystic, or anything like it. I would guess that a true mystic would want to remove themselves from the limelight, and therefore wouldn't be inclined to answer here. JMHO.

Mystic is not necessarily what I'd term myself. However as a Polytheistic, occult seeking, indivdual, who has had numerous experiences with my Gods, some might call me that.

Here is a question that a 'True Mystic' would answer quite easily. Get it 'un-right' and You can still be a "mistick" so there is that.

Ready?

Imagine You're climbing a mountainous peak like a K2 or Everest; You're doing this in order to ask the 'Cave Sage' exactly ONE question. Boy, You're motivated and the always in-shape Sherpa is marveling at the pace afoot.. You finally get to the cave and can ask JUST 1 question. What is the question?

(cue Jeopardy™ muzak....)

To a mystic zero equals infinity. To the non-mystic, zero never equals infinity.

The mystic sees no separation between self and the Universe. Opposite to the mystic is having the power of discernment. Division and distinction comes from language. Having divisions and distinctions allows to create a filter through which we can experience a simplified version of our the World in order to live more production lives. The problem with mystics is they never do anything really meaningful other than experience what is meaningful.

To understand the relationship between being a mystic and using language of discernment consider the following:

Unity of opposites

I don't think there is one correct way of being. You might be interesting in psychology of types and the divine child archetype:



Here's a really video on having a vision of meaning beyond simple mysticism:



After you are done melting with reality you might want to return back to having a vision with discernment.

RE: "I try my best to surrender myself to the will of God"

Why would you ever give up your will? There's a funny saying in Eastern religions, "If you see the Buddha on the road kill him." I believe absolute authority comes from within. There is no surrender outside of oneself.
