A “MYSTIC SUMMIT”! February 1-6
“Including 40 scholars, teachers, contemporary mystics”
A follower of this web site sent me this notification in January. She asked me what I thought. This is my edited reply:
“Very depressing. They think mystics are here to help mankind. That was not in any of my experiencs of Reality.
“In my experiences, mankind is a seething obstruction to Reality of lust, anger, greed, attachments and ego.
“True mystics, from my experiences and awareness of the historical phenomena of mysticism, are deliberately withdrawn from this world as part of the mystic processing that takes them far beyond human existence. I am.
“Furthermore, mysticism is caught, not taught, cannot be evangelised or prosyletised nor can it be used as a palliative for the human condition. Experience of it is guarded by an impregnable security system – the actual experience of Reality itself. Even the religions don’t have that. It’s baffling science, too.
“As the Christian book says, “Many are called, few are chosen”. So if as it seems, these people have not experienced the mystic experience of Reality (MER) enough to even lift them out of this worldly activity they’re advertising, they’re just stumbling. They’re not mystics yet. Their qualifications and reasons for any mystic identity are doubtful, to say the least …
“The best I can say for these people is they may be sincere but they are sincerely wrong. Their present state of existence cannot help humanity, not even real Seekers.
“Anyway, so far as the human condition is concerned, Reality is in charge, not us.
“Thanks for telling me about this though – sad as it makes me …
Big social distance hugs,
“Their qualifications and reasons for any mystic identity are doubtful, to say the least …”
An interesting response but, I suspect , a fair and accurate one. The organizing of conferences tends to be for material purposes.
The mystic tends to remain in his cave or garden.
Courses, seminars, conferences – better to sit at home and read Rumi.
