Chuck Dunning wrote a new blog post: On the Essence of Mysticism, and Other Mysterious Things 1 month 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 [...]

The Caregiver My heart was aching. Too much on my mind – Constantly thinking, thinking, thinking. My soul was lurking For some distant sign – Relentlessly searching, searching, searching. My spirit was lacking From desire of filling – Desperately reaching, reaching, reaching. God stepped into the emptiness and took up residence. There, in the darkness [...]
My path has led me from and through fear and suffering. Though I witnessed miracles in my lifetime, and I believe they accomplished whatever their purpose was, they were never a substitute for mysticism. It was only the direct experience of God that could free me from fear and change desperate hope into peaceful joy. [...]
I am new to this so I don’t really know what to say. The one thing I do believe in is God is still working in people and giving unique gifts to them. I also believe in soul receptive of one another. how would we meet for instance our spouse, or friends . I have hear time and time again.. ”I know you ”..and you run down a list .and they are not involved anything in you are doing at this time. that is one soul being receptive
of another of the past life(in which I believe in ) . I hope this is the right way to put this and I am glad I found this place …peace be with you
I love your posts, Ulises. They stretch and challenge me to think! That’s ALWAYS a good thing. We have finally, FINALLY, after years of searching found a church we are loving to call home. It’s quite diverse, and in meeting with the Pastor recently I loved his sharing that the diversity causes tension sometimes. However [...]
Hi Ulises, I appreciate your honesty and views. I have to admit, oftentimes I’m a bit baffled not only by your postings but others as well. That’s when I have to realize they too may be just as baffled by what I post. In all of that as I’ve observed over the past year, many [...]
Sometimes it regrets me a little to present issues that are perhaps too extreme. Especially for those who believe in the Bible literally. And they are blended into a creationist philosophy. And therefore they deviate from science and the evolutionary theory. But I have a liberal thought, I never have wanted to see me bound [...]
Beautiful insights, Fred, and so poetically expressed! Resonating with your comparisons: “a miracle astounds us,” so we’re “drawn” to mysticism. “a miracle astounds and baffles the mind,” so we seek mysticism, which “yields awe and deep awareness.” “a miracle allows us the touch of God,” so we come to mysticism, which “allows us the presence [...]
Thanks Fred, I enjoy these topics so much. I think that the miracle does lead to the mystical thought and vice versa. The miracle, in my view, also has so many direct connections to everyday life. For instance, when the mind comes across the random thoughts about tangible things of life, such as, “How does [...]
