The awareness of ultimate reality
Is what’s called mysticism. It can be attained
Through subjective experience. Direct union
With spiritual truth is achieved by the one
Whose devotion to enlightenment is maintained.
One knows God as absolute non-duality.
It’s also positive human transformation
Supported by spiritual practices and
Experiences. It was originally
A part of medieval Christianity,
But in modern times the term has come to expand
And include all those seeking illumination.
All religions and spiritual traditions
Have their mystics – the ones who’ve learned to go within
To find truth and reality. They’ve transcended
Established belief systems. They’re interested
Only in liberation. They are without sin.
They’ve dissolved the need to take any positions.
Spiritual awareness of the absolute
Is beyond all theology. Concepts and names
Are exclusive. One cannot label the supreme.
It alone has the ability to redeem
Us of our ego consciousness. The mystic aims
To make their mysticism a constant pursuit.
