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