If you are involved as a spiritual Seeker in a religion, in science or other human inconsequentia, you are not a mystic, not yet.
If you are still in the morass of politics or other demanding human mythomanias you haven’t even got far with real evolvement, not even to Seeker stage.
But, if some Sufi tradition is right, then evolution will ensure you will move away from human distractions and such self identifications.
There is not much you can do about it when Reality calls to complete you. There are no failures in Ultimate Reality, however long it takes.
You probably think you are seeking Reality but you will come to realise that Reality is reaching out for its own, for you.
(Sufis ‘discovered’ this evolutionary process before Darwin. They recognised it went further than the physical limitations of his time).
Ironically, by the time you get to being a mystic it wont matter anyway – there are no names in Reality …
So, there are two things you can do to assuage your hunger and thirst for the truth of your being:
Let go. Be still. Keep letting go. Listen. You are being helped. Keep listening. Remain still.
Lust, anger, greed, your myriad human attachments, even your ego, will be lifted like invisible veils, almost without you noticing because you will be experiencing revelation
Or you can wait for religions, science, human stuff, to eventually release you as they wither away anyway. This could take time!
All Is Well.
