Bodhisattva in Recovery
Alas, the so-called "dork", errr, ummm, "dark" mystic is, in reality, only biting at themselves.The above I completely agree with. And yes the physical is real, but the psychological is illusion. As a mystic you are still functioning at the level where the psychological is real. "And a mystic is anyone who has a functional connection to the "Intuitive Mind" ." quote, "mystic 64", 2016. From there the answers/information received depends on how you form you questions. Different questions result in different answers. And one's personality programming that lies in the subconscious mind/the automated part of the mind can have a strong effect on how one forms those questions because the answer has to fit into the framework of one's personality programming (Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the prettest of them all?). Information that comes from somewhere or something that is beyond us is what makes us a mystic. If we are religious that information that comes from beyond us is called God. Or some other Divine name or in some cases some not so Divine name . There are Dark Mystics .
That brings us back to the question:
What Are the Most Pressing Problems Facing Mystics?
Discussion in 'Mysticism DIR' started by Sunstone, Tuesday at 9:52 AM.
And one of those most pressing problems is, "Understanding what one is playing with as a mystic and how to manipulate and control it." The Intuitive Mind is like a genie that can be let out of a bottle and mystics are folks that have let this genie out of the bottle (sometime without realizing or understanding what happened ) and from there they are playing with it. At least until it scares them half to death and they quit doing it . Because the Intuitive Mind can bite, after all it is like a genie. And dark mystics use it to bite others.
The mysticism DIR, only mystics are welcome. It is a safe place for mystics to hang out and discuss things. But dark mystics are mystics also . I love that part! And they can walk the walk and talk the talk because they are mystics and if they are gifted, a safe place becomes something else. A gifted dark mystic creates a psychological environment where nobdody really knows what is happening, all they know is that they no longer want to be here. Gifted Dark Mystics are also one of the most pressing problems facing the average mystic .
