Q. “What do mystics bring to the human table?”
A. “Not all mystics concern themselves with the human condition, which is not in the hands of mere humans. Reality is in charge and doing fine.
“The knowledge that being human is transitory, transforming, and that there’s not much humans can do to hasten or hinder the process, not at this stage anyway, if ever, does not lend itself to mystical evangelism. Reality is and is enough. You have to experience it like a mystic to know it. It’s caught not taught,
Q. “This is what you were taught by your MERs?”
A. “What I deduce from my MERs, yes.”
Q. “Who are you?”
A. “Wrong question!”
Q. “Alright, What are you?”
A. “Good. The word Who? can be applied to humans. But mystics are ‘Whats’ because much of a mystic’s humanity is transcending from being merely human. To a mystic, humanity is temporary, a process from “Who” to “What”.
Q. “A process to God?!”
A. “There is no such thing as God or gods in Reality, or in a developed human’s logic, reason or experience.”
Q. “But there is this Reality thing then, and mystics are that?”
A. “In process, to the fulness of realising Reality, yes. But they are not Reality. Inso far as Reality reveals itself in the MERs some experience of human lust, anger, greed, attachments and ego are removed and Reality becomes the mystic, rather than the mystic becoming Reality.”
Q. “What is this Reality thing?”
A. “Reality is everything, everything known and unknown. It is beyond general human experience, beyond all gods, religions, political ideologies, ‘isms’, God, or currrent consciousness. It is the very basis of Reality beyond our minds or brains, materiality, or spirit. Its essence prevails throughout all existence in everything. It is benign, joyous, accepting beyond all human knowing or need of faith, hope or belief or even being human. In MERs it reveals itself and is that which Seekers seek.
“One tradition is that Reality creates Seekers who then proceed to enlightenment at varying paces. I don’t know. MER however is caught, not taught. The real MERs are spontaneous, sudden, not sought. Then the Reality of existence begins to clarify. And the process goes on.
“Mystics are, as a philosopher-writer friend says, “hundreds of years ahead.” It’s what all humans are becoming. In Reality where everything is perfect, there are no names no mystics. The term is human, temporary.
“Everything is known, everything is understood. All is well.”
