Q: How do you know you’re called?
A: I think the description of someone being ‘called’ is an inaccurate human reference to the mystical experience of Reality, (MER), that make some humans into mystics.
Mysticism isn’t a calling as if it’s some practise/profession of human activity. Mystics aren’t called, they’re absorbed into Reality and released back into humanity.
A: No one knows. Even serious scientists who accept the phenomenon say it’s ineffable, indescribable.
Q: Why is that so?
A: Because Reality is not human, it’s nothing to do with humans as humans are now. That’s my intuition. There were no humans in my MERs, even I found myself watching myself disappear eventually. There was nothing biological involved whatsoever.
Q: The monasteries were said to examine would-be entrants for a personal ‘calling’ before they were admitted.
A: I don’t know the entry rules for today’s monasteries but real gurus of today do look for genuine Seekers in order to assuage what the Christian bible calls such people’s “hunger and thirst for righteousness”, (Matthew 5:6). This passion is unique to true Seekers everywhere.
Q: Jesus said he had faithfully delivered his message to those already prepared by God. Isn’t this what mystics should be doing?
A: No. I think it was that human desire to spread the word that inexorably made Jesus’ mission fail and finally brought the religions to their end days. Religions lack the real thing, spirituality, because MER is spiritual, and it’s caught not taught. It’s not a social ideology either.
Q: What can I do to find out if I’m really called?
A: if you are truly called, the posts on mysticalexperiences.net may help you identify yourself as a made, genuine Seeker – separate from about 80% of the human race whether you like it or not. Each post in the blog is as genuine a representation of my MER experiences as I can make them.
You won’t have to read the whole blog to know if you are in fact a humble, submissing Seeker or not!
All Is Well. Reality Rules.
