The certainty of mystics about the authenticity of the Mystic Experience of Reality, (MER), is because there is nothing human about the experience, nothing in human existence or human history that is comparable to Reality.
This incomparability is what makes Reality so impossible to describe. As scientists and scholars put it, the experience is ineffable.
Also, human languages, being based on the need to share human experiences and thoughts, are of no use in describing Reality because Reality is not human, nor even biological if my MERs are anything to go by.
Google says ineffable means, “too great or extreme to be expressed or described in words”.
Reality encompasses much more than humans can presently understand without experiencing it, if ever.
Another reason for being so unarguably convinced about Reality’s existence is that Reality stays with you all your life by changing your basic knowledge and understanding.
Experience of Reality changes the way your life develops, is lived – e.g., your values, ethics, choices, rejections, discriminations, relationships, reading and learning, habits, core centre, commitments and loyalties; your very character and personality.
There’s nothing you can do about it or are expected to do about it, your re-creation just happens almost without you noticing, though you begin to understand how you don’t fit in with most of humanity, and enjoy solitude. You are not ordinary.
By human standards you are extraordinary so keep your head down. Humans are more civilised nowadays but have a violent history with the extraordinary …
These factual observations about Reality’s existence and Its effects also help us distinguish real seekers and mystics from those who claim to have had the mystic experience but relate it to being all about humans. The mystic revelation is much more real and effective than humanity.
All Is Well.
