Everyday We Can Experience God

Each day provides a chance to experience our Triune God. But to do so, we must be mindful and available. This is our choice. We usually refer to this as prayer. And, it does not need to be complicated. A simple pause, a well-known verse, an Our Father, and a Centering Prayer period all are forms of prayer that allow us to experience our Triune God.

It's up to us. God is always available. Will we make ourselves available?  Will you make yourself available?

Mystics Learn in Silence

Our world is filled with noise. Mystics need to routinely withdraw from the noise of their lives. Silence is our teacher. It is a place to find God where we seek to be centered in God's presence alone - no matter how imperfectly we do it.

There is No Emptiness

Mystics know God is in all and of all. God is always present. We may not notice and seek to fill a void. It is only that we do not notice our loving God present in each moment of time.

Mystics Love All

Mystics love neighbor as oneself which leads to the realization that oneself and one’s neighbor are actually distinct yet inseparable realities. Mystics know that their love extends to the wildflower, the meadow grass, the sparrow, and the raven. God’s creatures are a part of one heavenly realm, as St. Francis knew and lived so faithfully.

Mystery of Christmas

Mystics are able to embrace the mystery of Christmas. God becoming man is the greatest of all mysteries. And yet, when all is of God how can this be so mysterious!?! Praise be this glorious mystery!

Need vs Greed

Mystics understand that the world provides for our need and not our greed. Sufficiency and not more is how mystics orient their life.

Anyone Can Be A Mystic

Each and every one of us can be a mystic! What holds us back is only us - and no one else. We are a mystic when we stop to notice the mystery all around us. It is everywhere!! We are a mystic when we notice it and are grateful for it in our lives! See mystery. Feel awe. Be grateful. Be a Mystic!
