You think your desire for mystical union with God is somewhat unique. It is not. It is buried deep in the heart of all. We just need to feed this desire with the eyes of a mystic. See mystery and God everywhere!! Because we all can!!!
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.
In the moments of the day, mystics find the silence where they experience God. God is always present - we just need to be quiet to find Him.
