Mystics make mistakes and get lost. Truly lost! But they let God find them- and forgive them and love them!
Simple patience and perseverance in a state of formless prayerfulness, while doing nothing, accomplishes great things – St. John of the Cross
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 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.
