Practical Mysticism - CHAPTER VI - LOVE AND WILL

"Only the real, say the mystics, can know Reality, for “we behold that which we are,” the universe which we see is conditioned by the character of the mind that sees it: and this realness—since that which you seek is no mere glimpse of Eternal Life, but complete possession of it—must apply to every aspect of your being, the rich totality of character, all the “forces of the soul,” not to some thin and isolated “spiritual sense” alone."

Hi Lou Sorry I'm out of

Hi Lou

Sorry I'm out of synch with you guys. I live in South Africa so I'm awake when you are asleep and vice versa.
I have found my most meaningful connection with my extended Christian family comes with taking the Lord's Supper. I just seem to connect with the body in an awesome way. I can almost feel all those who have shared this before me right to Christ and all those who share with me now as we each take our small part in the Body and I can sense all those who will be taking part in the future. A difficult experience to put into words but it literally blows my mind each time as the size of my panorama of faith is blown wide open. It has radically changed my view of the Church and of the non-importance of denominational squabbles. It has changed my view of my own importance and the importance of others and has challenged how I view the Divine. This is why I am searching the Mystical as I want to connect fully with this 'thou' that I barely perceive now.
