MYSTICS AND QUANTUM PHYSICS?

Q: Are mystics a quantum wave manifestation as well as a particle at the same time?

A: The proposition might defy human commonsense, but then so does mysticism, so it could be true. If the suggestion is true would it also explain the two part mystic experience of being everything, including the experience of being temporarily human − wave AND particle?

WHY NO FOOTNOTE REFERENCES?

Q:  You never use footnote references to back up your posts.

A:  No, because I write and rewrite conscientiously to make sure the posts only come directly from my experiences, with the utmost integrity and absence of contamination from others’ experiments, experiences, ideologies or mythomanias.

The experience of Reality demands absolutely nothing less, and I obey to my fullest capability.

I also attempt within my skills to manipulate readers into their own experience of the subject because personal experience rather than  secondhand reportage is the way of Reality.

However, other reports and opinions on spiritual experience, particularly from established scientists in the field are posted separately under their names, sometimes with my comments from my spiritual experiences.

DOES MER GIVE SALVATION FROM SIN?

 

No. In MER there is no such thing as “sin”, no need for “salvation”.

“Salvation” and “sin” are human concepts, unknown and unneeded in Reality.

Religions taught it was a “sin” to act or think against their their teachings. The consequences of restoring personal “salvation” were dire and in many places still are.

There is nothing in the human notion of salvation that has anything “spiritual” or “divine” about it.

Belief, faith and hope were required to get over the fact the religions simply hadn’t experienced MER as their founders probably had. So to fill this knowledge gap the religions created Belief, Faith and Hope (“Fake it until you make it”), and the need for salvation, as the sand upon which they built their religions.

Those who experience MER don’t need the human mythomania of “belief”, “faith”, “hope”, “sin” or “salvation”. They KNOW Reality.

“Salvation” is a particularly contrary notion in the experiences of Reality where total acceptance of everything, including humans at any stage of their evolutionary development is fundamental to all existence.

Such powerful, inclusive love is beyond ordinary human experience. Reality’s acceptance/love is the very opposite of the notion of any need for “salvation”. We are loved beyond any human conception of love.

In any human struggle with Reality, Reality has already won.

Human constructs rise then fall under the weight of their own primitive lust, anger, greed, attachments, ego (and hubris). But Reality always asserts Its evolutionary process. Reality always wins.

All is well.

MYSTICS AND MYSTICISM: QUESTIONS FROM A NON-MYSTIC

 

Who can become a Mystic?

No-one knows. The Mystic Experience of Reality (MER) is spontaneous if my experiences of MER and the teachings of some gurus and mystic texts throughout the ages are anything to go by.

Mystics don’t exhibit any human attribute, mentally or physically that would qualify them for the experience(s) of the phenomenon; not age, gender, culture, epoch, education, religions, cults, faith, belief or hope or any other human experiences. MER shows no signs of being human.

There are scholars who are so steeped in the study of modern and ancient works on the subject (including the 12,000 year old Visishta for example), they can write dozens of best selling books about MER that can give the honest impression they have experienced MER when they haven’t.

Modern spiritual teachings are also hopelessly wrong when their lack of MER causes them to go off topic by teaching that MER’s objective is to make people better human beings. It isn’t. There are far more important things in Reality than being merely human.

While it is axiomatic, automatic that humans will, in human terms, be better human beings after MER or association with mysticism, even without experiencing it, the Reality of MER has nothing to do with humans especially. It is caught, not taught. It can’t be evangelised or proselytised. You can read the “sacred” texts in vain. If you are not called by MER – you can read the Bible backwards and forwards in any language you like but it won’t reveal its spiritual content. The key to doing that is MER. We can’t work on Reality, Reality works on us. And Reality’s ways are not our ways.

Who are mystics? (kids, western civilization, scholars, etc)

Anyone, apparently, if they experience MER.

It is not a western phenomenon. It’s universal.

Can drugs and alcohol/caffeine support or hinder my MER?

Once humans adulterate their natural state they are impeding the spiritually evolutionary process of Reality.

Is Mysticism a westernised religion?

Mysticism is not a religion. Religions are human constructs – ethical and moralistic, not mystical. Religions are incompatible with the personal revelations of the experience of Reality.

Mysticism is a universal experience. Dr Richard Bucke* suggested it is cosmic. Physicists’ jargon is just another way of talking about the Reality MER’s reveal. Google “physicists on mystic studies”.

What’s the difference between Mystic and Mystical?

The mystic is someone who has experienced MER!

Some people confuse the word mystical with the supernatural, “spiritism”, magic, primitive esoteric practices, pagan rituals, witchcraft.

Who founded Mysticism?

“Mysticism” is a human word that describes the experience of the existence of all things known and unknown. Aptly, the etymological root of the word is the Greek “to conceal” according to Wikipedia.

Top 10 Books/Websites on Mysticism – who wrote them and who are they for?

Google “Hindu mysticism”, “Buddhist mysticism”, “Islamic mysticism”, and “Christian mysticism” to start an avalanche of old and new works about mysticism, bearing in mind the term “mystic anything”, i.e., all the above categegories, are oxymoronic because mysticism doesn’t belong to anything. It is of itself, from before time to after time, before and after human existence. There is no such thing as Hindu mysticism or Christian or any other such mysticism.

Sadly most of these categories also imply mysticism describes a phenomenon that is purely anthropological, human, for and about humans. It isn’t. We are Reality but Reality is not just us.

How do mystics spread their message?

The experience is for individuals. There is no mystic public message as such. Mystics simply report a phenomenon they have experienced, the main points of which are basically a version of the same in all MERs. The phenomena is impossible to describe, but is always accompanied by a sense of intense joy, total acceptance (i.e: love beyond mere human love that is based on lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego), oneness with all existence, complete understanding. The experience is the beginning of the mystic’s knowingness, wisdom. MER, once experienced, is an ongoing direction of the individual’s process.

Mystics can attempt to spread that experience to humans in the usual human ways – speech, writing, videos, books, blogs. But such messages are only the menu, not the food. Such messages cannot nourish any more than a menu nourishes without the experience of ingesting the food. MER is the real nourishment. It can’t be transferred from books.

Do mystics ever find each other and start a life together? (get married, have children).

Mystics, being part human, makes this likely but relationships have nothing to do with being mystics. Many religions warn against attachments being a distraction from the spiritual. There are consequences.

Can you teach your children or raise them to be ‘mystics’?

MER is spontaneous, caught not taught. You can’t gift it. It’s protected from the merely curious or well intentioned by the simple expedient of a password. The password is, “experience” – personal, individual experience of MER..

Are there any associations I can join to support my MER?

If you’re not careful, yes. Watch out for monetarised lust, anger, greed, attachments and ego. MER comes to the individual, not groups or followings, attachments like cultures, nations, ideologies, politics, family – nothing human. Reality is enough.

Do mystics believe in life on other planets? In God? In the after-life?

None of these human preoccupations came up in my MERs.

It seems to me from my experiences of MER we are in an infinite process of which being human is just a part.

Do mystics celebrate birthdays and “religious” holidays?

Not if they can get away with it. Ordinary humans notice though, so I suspect most mystics try to fit in with the present state of the human condition, some more easily than others. Mystics tend to keep to themselves and avoid dissension in what to them can be an overbearingly expectant, challenging, primitive human setting.


*Cosmic Consciousness: A Study in the Evolution of the Human Mind is a 1901 book by the psychiatrist Richard Maurice Bucke, in which the author explores the concept of cosmic consciousness, which he defines as “a higher form of consciousness than that possessed by the ordinary man”. Wikipedia

HOW DOES A MYSTIC BALANCE A NORMAL LIFE WITH THEIR EXPERIENCES?

 

How does a mystic balance a normal life with their experiences?

With difficulty!

At the beginning, a mystic finds himself ricocheting off the sides of the tunnel of human life at speed. OUCH, OUCH, OUCH, DAGNABBIT, OOOH.

The mystic’s mind and/or body is hurtled against the impenetrable sides of an unwelcome human existence that surrounds him as he speeds out of control, even when he thinks he’s in control before he knows better.

Ordinary humans stay in the default position never knowing anything else.

The mystic should not be having this endless ricocheting experience. The mystic of all people has been given the centre road, right down the middle without the slightest wobble or deviation.

This perfection is given to the mystic, one of the fruits of the spirit. It is the mystic’s centre of contentment whilst the mystic is enduring being human. (Dr Marsha Sinetar posed the probability that mystics are a separate species)*.

Remembering mystic experiences is the mystic’s refuge, the mystic’s aid in getting back into the centre of contentment when humanity overwhelms. Then the mystic’s centre is retrieved by recalling the mystical experiences of reality, MER, that created the mystic in the first place.

Ordinary humans can do this to a more limited but powerful extent too. They call it meditation, but giving things names instantly puts a box of expectations around a process where in Reality, where all things are perfect, there are no names.

Meditation takes longer than the spontaneity of MER of course. But what are the options for someone who “hungers and thirsts”, impelled by persistent feelings however weak or strong, to know Reality?

Meditation of the kind described here is not for the curious or those who just want to be better humans. A religion might suit them better to start with…

The mystic can just sit quietly and allow Reality to take over. That’s why everything that exists exists in Reality why nothing can be itself without being absorbed into Reality by Reality.

So ordinary people can benefit from meditation:

  • Just sit and shut up. Let go and let Reality.
  • Shut down.
  • Refuse all but Reality. Eliminate. Clear out. Keep trying until you don’t have to try any more but are carried on anyway.. (As if, but not really! letting a wild animal eat from your hand without knowing you’re there).
  • Listen and obey. Eventually you wont have to obey.
  • Keep trying after failing. The process works.
  • Don’t have any expectations.
  • Clear yourself. That which you seek seeks you!

It helps to have someone who has already achieved in this endeavour to be available to help you recognise your destiny, (your vocation, ie, destiny), who can help you persist.

Eventually Reality does everything. By then you are that Reality and will find Reality is enough and always has been. The human race is getting there, despite its history. Reality has its own history.

As a mystic I don’t know how humans survive the human experience. I was cheerfully told, “They don’t, it’s terminal.” I find this exasperatingly sad. Why have humans been allowed to sink to their level in the first place I ask myself. And the perennial answer of Reality is: “All is well.” (Some scientists forecast humans will develop from their present chrysalis stage into something entirely different. This echoes a Sufi tradition).

As humans we are spectators at best in the great dissension between spirit and matter. Most humans don’t get that yet. But some scientists already have. They call it something else. (Tomartoes, tomaytoes!). All is well.

Onwards and upwards.

HOW DOES ONE PRACTICE MYSTICISM?

 

You can’t. It practices you.

Mysticism is not a religion, a cult, or a dogma. It is an overpowering infusion of an individual experience of an indescribable reality of existence beyond general human experience or understanding.

This Mystical Experience of Reality (MER) reveals a view of all things known and unknown in which all things have always had and always will have their existence in one description or another, where all things are and we are that, and the experiencers of this MER feel an accepted part, now and forever.

All this is imparted in a feeling of personal acceptance so powerful it extinguishes mere human love which is just lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego.

This non-human, mystical, experience of cosmic love is profoundly humbling, generating a rebirth, an individual reincarnation that fills the recipient with profound gratitude, a cleansing of all human concerns in a dissolving joy of final true belonging in everything.

The recipient now exists knowingly in an everything that is everlasting, where everything is known, where all is well.

There is no question of the recipient of this knowledge practicing it. He or she IS it, forever.

Why the recipient becomes part of the developing human manifestation of this Reality again after this experience is not clear. After the MER, being human again seems a constant, unpleasant, inconsequential challenge only mitigated by the certain knowledge that though being human is an incurable condition, it is terminal.

So a mystic’s practice becomes just being, now knowing what they are – something more than just human.

Reality awaits, practice or no practice.

ARE MYSTICS RELIGIOUS?

QUESTION: Can a person be a mystic and also practice another religion at the same time? (i.e. Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.)

ANSWER: No. Mysticism is not a religion. Religions are man-made institutions, spiritually irrelevant to the Mystical Experience of Reality (MER) that defines the mystic.

MER and the Mystic ARE mysticism. Mysticism is just the human word for the phenomenon. Reality itself has no name for it. Mysticism is Reality and Reality is everything known and unknown in which everything lives and has its being. It is far beyond “religion” and ordinary human understanding yet.

Historically, the mystic experience is not based on any known human mental or physical attribute such as religions. The main religions, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism*, were primitively inspired by but not based on the unknown, indescribable Mystical Experience of Reality (MER). How could they be, they had no experience of it, and experience is the reality of wisdom. (Incidentally, also the very basis of science).

* (The other religions, sects and cults, are based on needy emotional myths with little or no spirituality).

As such, religions are based on the unsubstantiated belief that if their followers in the absence of MER rely on faith, hope and belief, (“Fake it until you make it”), they will eventually cause MER to descend upon them. It doesn’t.

So in the absence of any real experience of MER, religions make up their own rules, dogmas, moralities, ethics, regulations, ideologies, political persuasions, cultural accretions, observances, procedures to create their interpretation of the phenomena.

Religions believe MER is about being better humans, thereby fulfilling human destiny. It is not. (Jesus, and others since, mistakenly interpreted MER this way too. So that’s why, on the biblical and historical evidence, Jesus’ mission failed. Reality is in charge, not humans however enlightened).

Such human notions result in failure to achieve the mystical experiences of mystics because the experiences are caught, not taught.

Humans are chosen for the experience by something unknown outside human experience. The ones who experience MER appear not to have any attributable qualifications for such a phenomenon to happen to them. Neither epoch, age, gender, nationality, culture, geography, human experience or education appear to be a qualification to experience a reality of existence unknown to ordinary people throughout human history.

Some mystics in history have had no option but to disguise themselves as members of one of the religions of the culture of their time so as to avoid mutilation, excommunication, torture, incarceration, crucifixion or other death.

Later mystics have learned the powers of invisibility. Human development today largely but not reliably or everywhere, allows mystics to speak out unhindered if they want to. Many don’t want to. Why would they? How can they describe what ordinary humans are not yet wired to understand? They can prophesy, but humans and mystics alike are not good at timing their prophecies. Clearly the kingdom of heaven for instance is not at hand and hasn’t been for 2,000 years.

So it’s unlikely a mystic will be found espousing a religion or anything human for that matter unless they have very good reason, a reason that’s probably nothing to do with humans anyway.

Basically, the mystic witness is that being merely human is not what it’s all about, certainly it’s not about religions or being religious.

ARE THE HUMAN OR MYSTIC EXPERIENCES ILLUSIONARY?

 

Some scientists say existence is a construct of the brain.

Others seem to assume the brain is just an inert fleshy mud that is activated to receive knowledge, or is made conscious of a reality of material existence, (matter).

Others suggest the brain receives and transmits consciousness of a “spiritual” reality.

However, the mystic receives knowledge of a completely independent existence separate from brain or matter. Nothing in the mystic experience suggests to the mystic that anything human, neither the brain, heart or stomach are involved in the transmission of that knowledge or is of any consequence to the mystic, any more than what makes a car go when the driver turns a key or presses a button or whether the car is using gas, natural gas, electricity or charcoal.

Some scientific thinking seems to suggest scientists are only mechanics at heart, the wheel still central to their thinking?

So the answer to the question, “ARE THE HUMAN OR MYSTIC EXPERIENCES ILLUSIONARY?” is – No, the things we call illusions, such as human (matter) or mystical (“spiritual”) experiences of existence, do exist. But despite all the assumptions and intuitions aboutning, including the one I feel good about that humans are evolving into pure spirit, like butterflies from a chrysalis, it seems no one can be empirically sure yet.

In the meantime, I take great comfort from the spoken lesson of my MERs (Mystical Experiences of Reality) that All Is Well. I take that to be meant as a comfort to me, that everything is as it should be and humans are not in charge.

PERSONAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Message of the Mystics.

A Consuming Passion.

Its meaning.

 

Q: Refined to its very basic premise, what is the message of the mystics?

A: It’s not clear that mystics are messengers if my experiences and readings are anything to go by. What mystics experience is exclusively for them, however similar the experiences seem.

Q: Well, if you will allow me to be personal, how would you as a mystic advise someone like me?

A: Someone like you? What is that someone like you?

Q: To use a phrase of yours, ‘Through no fault of my own’ I am a passionate Seeker. I have been all my life.

A: How does this affect you?

Q: I guess it seems to consume my life to the exclusion of everything else almost.

A: It’s your only passion?

Q: Yes, underneath everything else, it’s come to define me, isolate me, alienate me … I seem to have been born with a persistent ache to know what it’s all about. I feel worn out by it all, even though I sculpt, write, paint, play the piano, but my heart’s not in any of it really, though it is relaxing and time consuming.

A: It sounds as if it might be appropriate to share my own conclusion about the purpose of life. It might be helpful. You seem ripe for the experience, ready for the demands it makes.

The purpose of human life if my experiences are anything to go by, is to examine what you can of the Process of existence.

Do this by relaxing and watching, letting go, accepting how things unfold, grow and change, how they are veiled behind the inconsequential hullaballoo of being human.

This will be much like the early days of learning a musical instrument, how to sculpt, paint, and develop your writing to express the inexpressible. (Bearing in mind all these things by the way are art, artifice, not the real thing …).

Let discovering this Process channel your Seeker passion.

The growing knowledge of the Process of existence will reveal itself in ways profoundly new to you. Eventually it will take you beyond all human understanding, give you profound peace and contentment.

I see tears! You’re puzzled. Big sighs too! These are a good sign. They could mean the task has already taken, that it’s already working on you. Take a deep breath. That’s a good smile. Well done.

What I’ve told you isn’t meant for everyone. You had to be ready and I think you are. This advice may take you on a short journey or a long one, but there will be more help than you know working on you as you work on knowing this Process.

Eventual discovery of the meaning of what I have said will tell you more than everything, not just about your purpose in life.

This eventual discovery is like a captivation perpetrated on me in a different way in one of my MER’s (Mystical Experiences of Reality). It sharpened my awareness too. It baffled me at the time as I had not asked a question, and could not have asked anything to justify such an answer. Over time however, 50 years in my case, that mystifying, apparently meaningless message of captivation has revealed a continuing abundance of meanings and certainties.

Q: May I ask what your specific ‘captivation’ was that took you on, what it said?

A: Yes. It said:

“All Is Well”.

This was repeated three times.

Q: What have you concluded about it’s meaning after all these years?

A: That ALL, everything known and unknown, everywhere, on all levels, is well, in good order, as it is meant to be. Humans don’t have the answers. Nothing human is of much spiritual consequence. My probing into all the meanings arising from this enigmatical assertion sensitised me to all manner of truths and revealed why humans did such evil things to mystics and why mystics have historically learned to keep their revelations to themselves and how humanity is in such a primitive state of existence. Reality is all there is. Reality is enough.

Experience of it is the beginning of wisdom.

All is well.

“MANMUKH” vs. “MINDFULNESS”

 

The word mindfulness is “manmukh” and can be safely ignored as a spiritual distraction.

(My teacher used this – Sanscrit? Urdu? – word to describe anything human).

Anything human is a distraction from the spiritual way. The spiritual way is human destiny.

So my teacher abjured us to use “manmukh” as a navigational tool of discrimination and discernment, to enable us to keep humaness, “manmukh” at arms length.

However, our dwindling personal humanity was not to ignore the need to be mindful of our duties while here as sons, daughters, nephews and nieces, neighbours, friends, colleagues, patriots etc, though not to let any of these potential hindrances distract us from our spiritual way.

(Personally, I have now used “manmukh” to steer me through the Gordian knot of human experiences with a personal mantra to meet my human duties by being Legal, Decent, and Honest, but that’s all – no further attachments, just legal, decent and honest).

Detachment, discrimination is key. This is the truth of spiritual mindfulness, in my experiences of the mystical experiences of Reality.
