You are at the wrong site if you are just seeking to be a better human being.

However, if you are called as a genuine Seeker then it is axiomatic, automatic, that you will become a better human being whether you read or Follow this web page or not. Sincere familial blessings to you.

This is a BLOG for Seekers and those who have had the mystical experience of Reality (MER) and are humbly, joyfully dedicated to it – bringing their remaining personal humanity to terms with it.

The Blog is also for scholars and scientists and those others who find themselves compelled to study the phenomena.

Through no fault of my own I am a mystic, a contemplative and a quietist, but not a ‘guru’ or a teacher.

I had spontaneous experiences of an “Ultimate Reality” beyond all human consciousness, every year, from the age of about 15 to 35.

Details of these experiences appear throughout this web page. Click here for a full account of my personal MERs (Mystical Experiences of Reality). Also see my post on The Silent Buddha, which also describes my state.

I have been absorbing the subject by osmosis ever since, as well as by prodigious reading on as many known aspects of the subject as I have been able to find.

Before that I was a hapless member of the Church of England. Afterwards, I was a deliberate Quaker for many years, then passing a year’s observances, was initiated into a Sufi Knowledge School.

Consequently, though I am of no religion I was accepted and dubbed a “Contemplative” after a tailored personal version of the long and rigorous Jesuit course on “The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola” under a strict Father Director. Ever since, I have lived a life of conflict between this Calling and the duties and responsibilities of earning a living, marrying, and being a father in a demanding human environment, despite being alienated from humanity to some extent.

So what this Blog is about is reaching out to those who have also been taken through these obscuring veils of normal human experience into the Reality of Existence, also to scholars, and those who are studying the phenomenon seriously.

I also hope this will reassure those who are keeping their heads down as suggested in Dr Marsha Sinetar’s book, Ordinary People As Mystics and Monks, that they are not alone, not psychotic, and might be precursors of what the human race is going to be.

So join in with your comments. Don’t use your real name if you’re diffident about coming out. Those who share the Experience will recognize your authenticity.


Few here of their kind,
Orphaned souls
No parents find.
Entombed in man’s mortality
And man’s defaulting mind,
Neither human, nor sublime:
Lost, yet Divine.
