Question: You refer to Muggles now and again. I think I know what you mean but I notice you often reveal a deeper meaning when you write things out, like you do with these Questions and Answers. So can you tell me what you really think”Muggles” means?
Answer: Well Muggles is the word J.K. Rowling uses in her Harry Potter books to describe ordinary, conventional people who live conventional lives, who don’t know anything about magic and don’t want you to tell them about it either because they don’t think for themselves. They are more comfortable following the prevailing cultures, taboos and mythomanias of their times.
Q: Isn’t that normal?
Q: So why does it sound so pejorative?
A: Because that’s J. K. Rowling’s skill in using context to make it sound insulting so as to achieve her narrative purposes.
Q: Isn’t it also insulting when you use it?
A: No. I use it in what humans would call a spiritual context. So I use it as a description, not an intended insult. I use it to make the point that most humans at humanity’s present level of evolution have not experienced Reality.
Most people haven’t any idea of what you’re talking about, don’t want to know and can get very angry if you persist, rightly so in my view.
I never do talk about Reality except to genuine Seekers and Mystics.
Sufis have their own ways of putting off the merely curious without the curious even knowing.
Q: But the subject of mysticism is widely discussed, especially among the world’s scholars and scientists, even philosophers and theologians, as you have often written.
A: Yes, it is. But most of it is without the experience of the mystical experience of Reality. Without that special experience, which is caught not taught, much of what is said and written about Reality is gossip, rumour, conjecture, surmise, hearsay, sometimes sincere but nevertherless still sincerely wrong – completely artificial, like religions and other political idealogies masquerading behind morality and ethic in religious movements, and “social justice” in mythomanic political circles.
Q: Do you believe in magic?
A: Magic is a human word. It’s used to explain the inexplicable. But in Reality there are no words, no names, just Reality.
There was nothing human in my MERs, no “magic”, nothing inexplicable, just what humans who have experienced Reality and come back would agree is ineffable. Reality Rules.
Did I ever tell you that JK Rowling’s great grandmother on one side of her family was the sister of my great grandmother? My great grandmother employed her in her factory in the East End of London.
