Chuck Dunning wrote a new blog post: On the Essence of Mysticism, and Other Mysterious Things 1 week, 1 day ago · View
Recently, a friend took me to task for making the comment that mysticism doesn’t have much to do with angels and demons. Her surprise and head-scratching are understandable, especially since I have so often stated my agreement with the Apostle Paul that God is the One in which we live and move and have our being , and [...]
At the recommendation of some of my readers, I have compiled a complete index of articles on The Way of the Heart. It has been saved as a new page, with a link in the black menu bar underneath the banner.

Hey Chandra, I friend of mine often quotes this from the Movie Gandi: “The only devils in this world are those running around in our own hearts, and that is where all our battles should be fought.” Then he was asked : So what kind of warrior have you been in that warfare? Gandhi: Not [...]
Hi all. By the way, I let my 10 year old read my posting. She liked it, but corrected me that it wasn’t fire coming from our friend, but a fiery red demon that she could see. She was just as surprised that I didn’t see it, as I was surprised that she did. We [...]
Hi Chuck, Great wisdom, thanks for the two videos. Oftentimes, I get a bit discouraged because my well-meant words or actions are not taken as such and trampled. During these times, I feel what’s the use, what’s the point and then along comes something like your post. Being too heavenly-minded for any earthly good to [...]
Dear Chuck, I enjoyed both video’s, thank you! Your post reminds me of the book of Jonah and myself, lol. To SEE, “which I believe Jonah did” the hopeless impotence that lives in all, including himself, he determined that this Life was one to be avoided and he ran and stayed to himself, below, while [...]
Dear Friends, Recently there has been some discussion of the potential vices of mysticism, and one of the most common expressions of that is a lack of attention, patience, and active care for the ordinary affairs of everyday life, the common physical, emotional, and social struggles and joys of humanity. It’s so very easy to become [...]
The Church is a tarnished bride, yet still very much loved by Christ, the Bridegroom. It is a hospital for the hopelessly ill; nevertheless, the Great Physician sees the many patients and sees to their needs on a daily basis as He makes His rounds. Some have need of deliverance, but not all. Some have [...]
Dear Chandra and All, I agree with almost everything Chuck just said. The differences are minute but very valuable to me none the less. I would like to leave you with a few pieces of scripture that I try my best to live by in my own broken special way. Perhaps , this may or [...]
PS Fred, I do appreciate you overtly addressing your comments to mysticism, or knowing union with God. It isn’t necessary for each of us to do that with every single thing we write, but it can be very helpful when we point out the connections we sense. If this were a site about Impressionism in [...]
Hi Chandra, I regret that I have been so long in responding to you more directly and in greater length. Some of the things I have always respected about you are your obvious love for God, your desire to be a servant of goodness, and your willingness to speak the truth of your own experience [...]
