Mysticism is about the divine love that flows through everything in the universe and through us into the human world. Love is why we're here.

Where Questions Answer Themselves

What is this space I'm in? Lessoning motivation, deepening quietude, surrender to the peace of divine being.

The Emotional Work of Enlightenment in Aging

While mystical experiences (direct, first-hand experiences of the divine) can happen to anyone at any time, the progressive movement into mystical consciousness requires both psychological and spiritual work.

Sensing the Other World as We Grow Old

A strange experience has entered my consciousness in recent weeks, a distinct feeling that this world and the next are somehow the same or overlapping or unexpectedly close or even merging. It feels as if that the boundary between the two worlds - my present human reality and the "world" awaiting us after death  Read More
