"We are all potential mystics. To become a mystic is not a privilege but our birthright!"
There is a deep hunger and thirst within us for meaning, for peace, to love and to be loved. We crave a deeper personal transformation of our heart. Who will lead us to nourishment of the soul? Who can point the way to life-giving water? Who will inspire us to let the Spirit ignite the fire in our soul?
ENTER THE MYSTICS: ordinary human beings, who experience God's presence. They see with the eye of Love, and know the Beloved because they know themselves as the Beloved of God. Mystics of all religions and wisdom traditions use universal images of light, darkness, life, death, wind, fire...and just as artists give birth to music, paintings and poetry, mystics give birth to God in the world. They show us rather than tell us what God is like.
Come and See! Why not be a Mystic? Why not become Fire?
"It has always been the mystics who revitalized the Church. Nothing could be more salutary for the Church than to be bulging with mystics!” – Evelyn Underhill
