Pierre Teilhard de Chardin -Mystic Mentor

For Teilhard, faith was never a matter of doctrines and principles. It is first and foremost an action—an “operative” as he calls it. Faith in this way becomes a wager: if the premise is true, you can only live into it through action. – Cynthia Bourgeault

Mystics live into their faiths. They believe but it is not the end.  Doctrines and dogmas are important – but not why they do what they do.  Faith is an action.  It is not words or a belonging system.  In this way, it is transformative.
