TO A MYSTIC, NOTHING IS “MYSTICAL”

 

Mankind has a limited view of mysticism.

The common, vulgari understanding of the word “mysticism” implies an unattainable “mystery”, or “myth”, whereas in fact a mystic has experienced something that has always existed and always will exist. It is no mystery or myth. Hundreds of university departments around the world are studying and delivering courses on the subject.

Everything known and unknown already exists, is developing, is yet to be fully discovered, is not created by us – or any other species.

Scientists can’t invent this Reality. It exists in and of itself. Scientists and mystics just “discover” its attributes – the scientists by experiment, the mystics by experience.

Mystics experience a Reality that scientists merely “discover” piece by piece by scientific experimentation and comparative observation yet it is still not commonly or fully known and probably can’t be  because ordinary humans are not presently evolved enough to be able to know. But this doesn’t mean Reality is forever “mystical”, “mysterious” unknown or individually unattainable.

To understand the human condition it is important to know the  Reality in which we exist is true. This Reality just is and we are that. We humans arise out of Reality. We are made of Reality. Everything known and unknown is Reality. Earth itself is part of this greater Reality that is much bigger than anything conceived by humans or their “Gods” or gods …  Reality is not just about humans. It’s about everything, undeniable but indescribable.

As part of the process of Reality our physical earth fits us because we came from it physically. We are made of the same stuff. We come from the elements of the earth, are custom tailored by the earth. The earth is likewise customised to fit us. It’s the same with us and the greater Reality; we are compatible, synchronised; ever changing to match the exigencies of the greater Reality of the never ending, ever transitioning characteristics of the material and nonmaterial (spiritual?) cosmos of which everything is a part.

In this continuing process our minds appeared. The mind developed as a consequence of earth and humans being part of this creative, manipulative effect of the greater, non human environment of Reality.

So, the word “mysticism” is just a very limited human word. It’s not big enough nowadays to describe even the little we now understand. The growing acceptance of the existence of mystical experience of reality (MER) has made our old understanding of mysticism obsolete. The word still has lingering, wrongful connotations of occultism, spiritism, primitive ignorance, magic, religions, ecstasies, superstitions, mythomanias and cultural/political mischiefs, etc. In Reality however, where all things are perfect and all is well, there are no names – everything just is, and we are that! Mystics don’t need names. Nothing is “mystical” – it’s all Reality.

Mankind’s limited view of the mystic experience of Reality is not new. As the biblical Jesus discovered at the temple, even there at that part of the early human attempt to grasp what human existence is all about, religion and monetisation were already vulgarising the evidence.

ARE YOU A WHO OR A WHAT – ACTUAL OR JUST APPARENT?

 

We were discussing my mystical experiences of Reality (MER) in the Mexican sunshine when my friend said:

“So after all that, where are we in this conversation now? I mean, do you know who you are any more?”

I said, “I’m not a Who, I’m a What.”

This is the kind of enigmatic reply you get from gurus (not that I’m a guru) that so exasperated me in the early days. It annoyed my friend too, I could hear his eyeballs click as his eyes rolled. But now I understood why the elucidations of so many gurus were and are so enigmatic.

Why? Because if the gurus give a full explanation all the questioner gets is the guru’s definition. But if the questioner is left to work the answer out from the guru’s deliberately enigmatic clue, the questioner finally owns the answer as a personal experience. Some would say that’s why humans are humans – here to record their experiences. (George Fox, the founder of Quakerism, used to say: “I know what the gospels and the prophets say, but Friend, what sayest thou …? ).

Personal experience is the beginning of wisdom,it is knowing rather than second hand description, like having to work out how to shell the peanut before making the experience of eating the peanut uniquely yours. It’s like seeds sown yourself making you understand the results in all weathers and climates.

This is just a material explanation of the importance of experience. As the true experience of Reality is indescribable but undeniable, you can see how important experience is compared to second hand reportage which is hearsay. It’s the difference between being an “awakened one” or “a sleepwalker”.

A paper menu for instance does not contain the nourishment of the actual experience of the food the menu is describing, however accurately.

From this you will see why Jesus’ disciple who was nicknamed “Doubting Thomas” was an exemplar of truth seeking.

Truth is hidden in experience. That’s why scientists experiment to get at materialistic truths but the mystics don’t have to because their experience has given them a completely different, macro perspective of existence …

My friend laughed, “So are going to tell me what a What is?”

I said, “You’re a friend. I would do you no favours by feeding you my answers. Feed yourself. You already know. The answer also comes with a lot of extras, all for you. Remove your veils…”

DOES THE MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE OF REALITY HAVE A PURPOSE?

Q What do you think the mystical experiences of Reality are all about; their purpose? Do they have any?

A: Something throughout history has been causing some people to have experiences of as much of Reality as their current state of existence can bear, creating massive, ineffable, personal epiphanies – an indescribable but undeniable awakening to a conscious Reality of existence.

This is an awe provoking, overwhelming experience of truth, humility and veneration, the memory of which still shakes me deeply.

It erodes your humanity so as to enable you to be something other, something that is your true, secured destiny for ever. That, to me, seems to be its purpose.

Q Do you know what that “other” is?

A: Well, the epiphanies are a profoundly joyous state while you’re in them, less so when you come out of them. We are much accepted, loved, that’s for sure. Whatever you are in that state is what you always have been and always will be. You are a permanent fixture of a Reality much greater than being merely human.

The experiences are a mighty but benign, accepting, loving power beyond human experience. They are of an existence beyond ourselves.

After the epiphanies, you develop a growing understanding, consciousness, that everything is Reality; where everything that exists, known and as yet unknown, is only a part of that Reality, including humanity.

Q So what does it all mean? How does this effect the human race?

A: Well, the epiphanies raise the question, are we being harvested? Are we being seeded and grown? I don’t think the experiences are a seeding process. If they were, humanity would be a great deal less primitive than it is now, wouldn’t it?

Whatever we think the meaning of these experiences are they can only be speculative.

But I think we can rule the experiences out as any product of the brain, physical or otherwise – they are not imagination, creativity, intuition, logic or reason or merely biological – the experiences are too completely beyond human knowledge or comprehension. This leads me to speculate that the brain of the mystic is just a receiver suddenly awakened.

There is no total concensus on what existence/consciousness of Reality is, or even IF it is – even the scientific world cannot agree on that yet … (laughs).

However there is an historical consistency in the witness of mystics that this Reality does exist outside the merely human experience.

We don’t even know why the experiences only seem to happen to individuals – contrary to all human instinct to huddle, to adopt ideological collectivity of one sort or another that always change for the very worst and historically fail anyway.

What the experiences of Reality also seem to reveal is that everything we call human is in a transitional state. Everything, human and non human, is progressing towards complete integration with the consciousness that is Reality. Some scientists are even suggesting humans won’t exist eventually. I find that plausible from what I’ve seen of Reality.

Q So how does this affect those who have had the experience when they come back into the human present?

A: The knowledge of the existence of this greater Reality makes me, for instance, realise there’s nothing in the human experience worth studying or even worthy of note in the greater scheme of things.

I must warn you that’s only my experience. You can only really know things by personal experience. You have to know what I’m talking about from your own experience, not from anyone else’s.

Q So would you finally conclude the human race is being “harvested” then, for instance?

A: Well, so far as the human condition goes, there’s no overwhelming human evidence these ancient epiphanies have produced a very effective seeding result so far, is there? (laughs).

Nevertheless, I don’t have any better guess than “harvesting” as an explanation of what these experiences of Reality are all about.

Q Could such harvesting be by other beings?

A: I think not. Reality doesn’t seem to be controlled by “beings”. Reality would do its own “harvesting” or “seeding” – like the natural processes of birth or the chrysalis effect.

Q So back to the first question – “What do you think the mystical experiences of Reality are all about; their purpose?”

A: Unfortunately, too many human beings are still enthralled by the negative principles of human existence – lust, anger, greed, myriad mental/emotional attachments, and ego.

Consequently, many aspects of the current human condition are in the primitively ugly state of “much ado about nothing,” causing unending unrest and chaos when there are more important things to attend to than being merely human. Mystics have dubbed the majority of humans as “sleep walkers”.

So in the meantime, Reality goes on with or without probably 90 per cent of the human race’s cognizance of Reality’s existence or purpose. We are all on one side or the other of knowing the existence of that benign enigma.

Perhaps these are early days in humanity’s destiny. We are after all supposed to be less than four billion years old compared to the known universe’s 15 billion years, not including the rest of the unknown universees.

Q Does any sense of your own duty or destiny arise from these “epiphanies” you experienced?

A: No, no sense of duty, evangelising, prosylitising or moneterising whatsoever.

Q Why this Blog then?

A: The blog started as a means of analysing my experiences, meditating on them, contemplating them, sometimes being prompted by them, unburdening myself of my humaness. I wanted to contact anyone else who might have had them too.

Writing can be a uniquely profound way to discovery and meaning. This subject particularly demands nothing less than using writing’s ability to deliver total integrity and precision.

I also hope others having the same experiences of Reality, or who are genuinely called as Seekers, get some shared validation, some comfort and encouragement from my experiences. They are submitted respectfully.

As for my personal destiny, I have seen it. The bad news is now having to endure being partly human. The good news is, being partly human is only temporary, terminal. (Laughs).

In the meantime, there is much comfort and encouragement in the specific, spontaneous, meaningful assurance my experiences gave me in my thirties:

“All is well”.

ARE YOU MATURING INTO REALITY?

 

Q: What is the context of humanity in relation to Reality?

A: Anthropomorphism has no exclusive context in Reality. So to what can you compare Reality?

In my experiences of Reality It did not try to justify Itself by comparing Itself to anything because Reality is everything.

It did not make any comparison to humanity or the world in any way. The experiences were pure, unrelated existence showing Reality is enough in Itself, incomparable. It cannot be defined by comparison.

Q: So what is the proof of Reality?

A: The only proof of Reality is in experiencing It.

Q: But where does the human race fit into all this?

A: My feeling is Reality does not give the human race any consideration whatsoever. Reality only reveals Itself to individuals – mystics.

Q: You mean individuals who only become mystics after they’ve had what you call the mystical experience of Reality, MER?

A: Yes. My feeling is the collective, totalitarianism, communism, ideologies, nations, socialism, liberalism, etc are primitive constructs that will whither as Reality continues its evolutionary function with individuals. Being merely human is not what it’s all about.

I feel myself thinking the human race will be discarded eventually, presumably when humanity has finally matured into Reality.

PERSONAL PURPOSE?

QUESTION: Is there a personal purpose for us all? Do we have to find it and fulfill it?

ANSWER: No. My experiences of Reality several times a year from about 15 years of age to my late thirties gave me no indication that I had a human purpose. Later I did begin to wonder if my purpose is simply to experience this mystical phenomena and its consequences.

Since then the experiences have affected all my consciousness of being a human self in process in a greater Reality of which all humans are part. They continue to do so.

Dr. Richard Bucke speculated in his book, “Cosmic Consciousness” and Dr. Marsha Sinetar in her book, “Ordinary people as mystics and monks” that those who experience MER, (Mystical Experiences of Reality) are a new human species. I have no idea.

So no, I didn’t get any suggestion I was to find my personal purpose for existence and fulfill it. Reality found me and has been processing me ever since – whether I like it or not … (laughs).

QUESTION: Do you mind?

ANSWER: It has never occurred to me that I have any will in the matter.

QUESTION: So you don’t mind, you wouldn’t resist this process, say no to it?

ANSWER: No, I don’t mind. I would never go back to whatever I was, or resist the process. I am Reality as Reality is me. We’re one. I am that. I’ll be glad when my human experience is over.

QUESTION: Would you say you are unique?

ANSWER: No, I don’t think so. Sir Alister Hardy compiled 6000 cases histories like mine when at Oxford University. The archive is now at Wales University under a Templeton grant. There is also much modern and very ancient history attesting to the MER phenomena.

QUESTION: What do you think it is all about?

ANSWER: I have no definitive answer, but the thought arises that those who have MER are emerging as if from a chrysalis from humanity into the next stage of Ultimate Reality.

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.

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.

THE MYSTIC JESUS AND HIS TEACHINGS

IN REVIEW

The Gospel of Jesus: In Search of his Original Teachings, 1068 pages, by John Davidson MA (Cantab).

Due to the nature of this book and in order to make it accessible to as wide a readership as possible, its entire production, up to the printing and binding stage was performed as a service, freely given by the Publisher, ELEMENT in 1995.

So the price of this mammoth 1068 page book was kept down to $22 (US) and 14.95 Sterling (UK)! It has been distributed around the world.

EXCERPT

“It would seem, then, that there is considerable divergence between the teachings of Jesus and those of Christianity, and although these initial chapters are more concerned with the historical aspects of Jesus and the New Testament, the main emphasis of this book is on Jesus’ actual teachings. Therefore, since it is suggested that his teachings were those of a mystic, it will be helpful to discuss the nature of mysticism … it is something that a person lives, not a philosophy or doctrine which has been read or studied.”

COMMENT

It’s hard to imagine a single question, by ‘Christian’, atheist, agnostic, religionist or Seeker, that could be left unaddressed in this clearly written labour of love and tireless scholarly integrity. Even more impressive is the new knowledge, the insights and understanding this seminal work reveals of the workings of the mystic experience throughout history.

However, as my mystical experiences were spontaneous I have to lean to the proposition that the mystical experience of Reality (MER) cannot be achieved through reading, study, good works or anything else merely human.

I can only agree that such human hungering and thirsting for the experience can sensitise one strongly to a greater awareness of the ultimate mystical experience, but no more than that.

Discrimination is important when exposing oneself to “works” on mysticism. You could get diverted into morality and ethics, stuff of the human spirit, not the entirely different ‘spirit’ of Reality.

(Davidson says he’s been interested in mysticism all his life but doesn’t say anything about any personal experience that would qualify him as a mystic so he might be a case in point?).

Nevertheless, this book has to be recommended for those seeking some validation for their present unbidden passion for Seeking.

You might also be interested in other works by Davidson:

After leaving Cambridge University where he taught for 18 years, he wrote a series of five books on science and mysticism. The intention was to give a voice to the idea that an understanding of science was in no way incompatible with a spiritual perception of things.

These books received great reviews, and have been well received by the general public, especially by those who think “outside the box”, he says. They have been translated into a number of languages.

In 1989, Davidson began researching the origins of Christianity, to see if it was possible to determine what Jesus actually taught.

The main fruits of this research were first published in this book, The Gospel of Jesus: In Search of His Original Teachings (1995), revised in 2004. He has written several books concerning the origins of Christianity, largely containing stories, parables and poetry from early Christian times.

At the same time as he started research on The Gospel of Jesus, he began work on what was to become the multi-volume, A Treasury of Mystic Terms, of which Part I (six vols., 2003) and Part II (4 vols., 2016) have so far been published. Part III (six vols.) is completed and will be published in 2018 or early 2019, and Part IV is presently in progress.

This Treasury is the result of contributions from a large number of contributors from various cultural and religious backgrounds. Its intention is to demonstrate the fundamental and universal elements in the world’s religious and spiritual traditions, for both information and inspiration.

“CLEVER” MER IS NOT A SCIENCE

 

The mystical experience of Reality is not a human science. It isn’t reproducible, as science demands. It does reproduce, but not by human will or experimentation.

For some as yet unknown reason the phenomena is guarded by a ‘key’ made only available to some humans throughout human history who seem not to have any discernible qualification to experience this increasingly scientifically studied phenomena. (Eg., over six thousand case histories were archived by Oxford University and are now archived under a Templeton grant at Wales University). This ‘key’ is: The Mystical Experience of Reality (MER), the EXPERIENCE being the ‘key’

The Experience seems to be fully guarded by the absolute necessity to experience It. Clever.

Everything else but this personal experience is a distraction, a contaminant, I.e.: Conjecture, experiment, logic, reason, books, courses, lectures, studies, practices, religions, foolishness, mythomania, charlatanry and dogma, even being sincere though sincerely wrong.

There is much confusion between understanding the difference between the human spirit and the Ultimate Spirit of Reality. Each are entirely different in my mystical experiences. In many ways the human spirit spins the veils between the two.

Some think that on the growing evidence, the human condition is getting more spiritually evolved as intended. So will science eventually join the exterminated by then anyway?

ULTIMATE REALITY – male or female?

 

In my 15 years of experiencing the mystical experience of Reality, (MER), several times a year I never came across anything masculine or feminine in the experiences – there were no names in this simple perfection – everything just was and I was that.

There was nothing hermaphrodite in my experiences either, though that too, like gender, is a real material condition here on earth.

So my impression is that neither gender, sex nor even being human have anything to do with the Mystical Experience of Reality as I experienced It, not even with the human adulterated word, “spirituality” in all its forms.

THE SECRET PASSWORD TO MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE

The most secret password in the known Universe is needed to reveal the mystical experience of Reality (MER).

This password is: “EXPERIENCE”.

That’s the good news. The bad news is:

The password is caught, not taught, not given nor bought. You can’t achieve this state of being, this state of Reality beyond the merely human, without it being caught). And no cryptologist in the world can crack the code!

Why is the experience of Reality hidden?

Presumably because most humans don’t have the attributes that qualify them to receive it yet. Or perhaps they’re unaware of this unrealised power they have? Maybe humans can’t be trusted with this Apple? Or their current state of development is too primitive for them to understand, or have any use to developed Reality yet?

The good news:

Mystics aver every human has a profound yearning for the infinite joy and acceptance that is the core of the mystic experience of reality (MER). It expresses itself strongly or weakly but irresistibly like a plant growing through concrete … It can be recognised when it surfaces in Seekers and Mystics. Otherwise it lies dormant or unrecognised, unacknowledged, never sleeping!

If you Google ‘Mysticism’ the historical and current references from all over the world seem to never end, that’s how pervasive this fundamental aspect of the human condition is, compared to human science, history, psychology, religion, medicine, literature or ideologies, isms and politics – all extinguishable as the Reality of the mystic experience never is, guarded as it is by the most secret password in the known Universe …
