A mystic is someone who desires a direct relationship with the Divine. They know that there is a whole other reality all around us: a multi-faceted and wonder-filled way of experiencing life.
Mysticism is often considered the realm of yogis and sufis; reading ancient texts, prayer, beautiful poetry and whirling dervishes. (This, too, is all true.) But being a mystic actually brings us into our whole human experience. It is often the missing piece of why we struggle in life, why we ache to find meaning in life, why we often feel so lost.
Being a “practical mystic” means that we bring this wisdom into every aspect of our lives. We know that we can ask for help. Then, we listen within for guidance. And then we have the courage to act upon it!
