What are the changes we wish to see happen in this monumental year? How as mystics can we help to create them? We get inspiration and guidance by looking at some discoveries of quantum physics and applying them to our desire to help bring about the 2012 transformation. Surprisingly, we can have very powerful effect on the world, on its heart and mi…
 
In this time of exceedingly rapid evolution of consciousness, we experience often unexpected extremely challenging times, and also sudden states of expanded joyful realization. When we put both of these experiences in the context of the collective, of the Oneness, we find that knowing our participation in the healing of the planet in both the diffi…
 
Floods, fires, infestations, political standoffs and strife: chaos abounding outwardly and inwardly as well. What's a good mystic to do?If the mystic path is about anything it is about love and compassion, which have been abundant in the face of the Texas floods as well as the many wildfires plaguing the nation; there are so many examples of ordina…
 
The message that Jesus brings is Love. The magic and power of Easter is that Love returns, embodied. The message is Love! not just the Law, not the power-of-the-strongest, but Love! and not just when it is convenient and easy and flowing, but also and even especially when it is difficult and challenging. Herein our mystic passion is being forged.In…
 
With a collective sense of humanity in America, and to some extent the world, being anxious and uncertain amid the rapidly evolving political and environmental scenes, we need as never before to access our genetically encoded sense of joy/peace/love; we need this access as a daily mystic practice to help heal what is ailin' us. And Hey! it's Spring…
 
In terms of the daily living of our lives, perfection is the enemy of the soul. Kindness, lovingkindness toward one's family and friends, tribe and worthy opponents, and towards oneself, is a mystic practice in great demand right now. The Japanese philosophy of WabiSabi is a paradigm founded on the Buddhist three marks of existence: impermanence, s…
 
Do we lose our innocence or just misplace it? Does innocence end because of the seemingly inevitable effects of growing older or does it get transformed, so thatwe often don't recognize it anymore? In this complex and challenging world is access to innocence even desirable?Innocence is our true inner sense; we are born with Buddha nature, with puri…
 
Such love doesthe sky now pour,that whenever I stand in a field,I have to wring out the light when i gethome.-St Francis of AssisiThe inner journey in nature, no matter time of year, offers opportunities for letting go, for deeper presence, absorption, sometimes even rapture or ecstasy. And so we wring out the light with the utter delight of deeply…
 
Silence, stillness and darkness give us a chance to disconnect from our wired world, from the external, from the cacophony of everyday life, the onslaught of information and the chaos of noise pollution.Stillness is the silence of our habitual unconscious body movements.Darkness is the silence of sight.For some the disconnect of silence is emptines…
 
Isn't a whisper how sometimes spirit speaks? Not the loud, authoritative, powerful voice necessarily but the still, small, voice, a whisper speaking spirit. Whether it is your name being called or your power being called back into your heart and soul, a whisper is what often guides the mystic.But what of eternity? Other than that it is a very long,…
 
The dark events of the summer are enough to make pessi-mystics of us all!No one needs to be told that there is currently conflict and confusion, widespread anger and deep grief in the collective. Add the weather to the mix and we can be almost depressed! But there is work for the mystic to do that can make a huge difference in all that's going on. …
 
The mystic develops skills that are specific to a Path of Awareness, Compassion, and Embodiment of Spirit. Among those skills are the ever-increasing ability to find silence within, to know deep peacefulness, to practice unconditional love, and to take responsibility for all the events in one's life. The mystic seeks embodied experience beyond the …
 
This Sunday for the Musings is the sacred Palm Sunday holiday for Christianity and is sacred as well at the Spring Equinox for the earth-based religions. We honor these religious celebrations and will create together our own sacred Sunday mystic event, by exploring the fundamental value of Playfulness as a way of deepening into the Mystical. This c…
 
In our fast-paced modern culture the mystic faces the challenge of daring to live life in a slower, more contemplative way. This requires a focus on Being, more than on the constant Acting we have been conditioned to do,and is supported by being in the moment, slowing down our breathing, our thinking, our feeling. We meditate, pray, self-reflect, a…
 
So many of us live our lives as a simple prayer, the prayer great mystic Meister Eckhart values above all others: "Thank You". We walk in gratitude because we know our blessings and notice how often they come, even in times of darkness. Using the phrase "Thank You" as a mantra yields beautiful results. Just the simple phrase, rather than Thank You …
 
True art reflects and enhances the whole of human life. It illuminates our joys and our sorrows. It makes everything beautiful, no matter how dark and difficult. And it often reassures us that all will end well. It brings us peace. It brings us a deep knowing, a knowing that cannot be spoken of except in the language of the poet. Great art is the p…
 
The Halloween-time of the year has for many centuries been considered a time when the veil between heaven and earth is very thin indeed. We can, it is said, most easily at this time access other dimensions of consciousness. This is an exciting time for mystics all over the world because we know that spiritual growth often involves moving into exalt…
 
In this Musing we explore gratitude as a mystical state of being, rather than a compendium of practices. Mystics have a natural gratitude born of the experience of God as a benevolent, all-loving Creator, and of Life as a meaningful and blessed journey. And we have daily practices of expressing that gratitude in prayer and spoken appreciation. We a…
 
In this Musing we speak of the value and the joy of direct experience of Gaia, Mother Earth. This experience is most available by connecting with Her heart to heart. We will offer easy and powerful techniques for making this important connection. And we will discuss how this interaction is needed as balance to the connection with "Father Sky". We w…
 
Curiosity for the mystic is grounded in humility, grounded in the knowledge that each day we leave behind the old and awaken to the new. The Divine is Infinite and always has new treasures awaiting us. Without curiosity we leave the realm of the spiritual and enter into the realm of religion, which preaches its doctrine of absolutes.Commitment is b…
 
We are slowly going deeper in the portal of our mystic practice, deeper and closer with Creator, with Source, with God, with the Beloved especially when praying, meditating, connecting ourselves heart to Heart in a beautiful intimacy with the Beloved. We are moving together from feeling the transcendence of Divine Presence to the feeling of immanen…
 
Appropriate for mystics of all faiths, with this Musing we invite our Christian and Jewish and Buddhist members to join us along with people of all other religious and non-religious backgrounds and practices. Focusing on the miracle of "the Word becoming flesh", we speak about that sacred alchemy in the context of our present day evolution. We sugg…
 
We seek to mine the riches of the dark sides of life in this Musing. There are more gifts than we may have noticed in the down times. We already know that we go through these passages for cleansing and self-knowledge, and that we have experienced great awakenings following these difficult events. While we will comment briefly on these issues, we ar…
 
What attitudes and perspectives do we need to add a sense of lightness in our lives? What is the benefit of bringing lightness to our spiritual path? What are the obstacles? There are several steps that lead to the lightness (and to the Lightness) of our journey at this disturbing time in human evolution that we will share with you. We will also sp…
 
In our day, with Guidance so available to us, we can streamline our prayers and practices by intending rather than efforting. We can allow and not labor. What often complicates matters is the chattering mind and the fearful inner child. We delay the manifestation of daily expansion by making too big a fuss over the hows and whys of personal co-crea…
 
We are emptying ourselves that we may receive the bounty promised in the coming shift of consciousness. What do we do with this abundance in terms of blessing the world especially in the face of such recent devastation and tragedy in our country? What is called for now is evoking radical grace through inner silence and meditation and at the right t…
 
We are, in every moment, the sum of the resonances of body, soul, mind, and heart. We are also the resonances of our masculine and feminine sides. As we grow, all these components of being are shifting and coming into harmony. The cycle of harmony and disharmony is the way we move forward on the spiritual path. In times of harmony there is a cohere…
 
The great mystic secret of the Easter event is that Jesus returned not as a vision but in a body. What was he trying to teach us about ourselves in making a physical return? We discuss this in a new light because of recent revelations, and we extend our thoughts to questions about how each of us as well as the earth herself is experiencing resurrec…
 
At this time of the year we celebrate the wonders and joys of love, for others, for ourselves and for the Creator. We celebrate romance and we celebrate love beyond romance. The love that we honor honors all of us in all the ways that we love, from our unique ways of being ourselves to our unique way of loving what God is for us. We will suggest so…
 
As mystics we are committed to leading a conscious, intentional life. We learn to balance a dependency on Grace with creating what we want in our lives. In this Musing we will speak of a new formula, appropriate to our New Era, for manifesting what we want on all levels of our being, utilizing the energy of the fullness of Love and a Sacred Resilie…
 
The focus of this Musing as well as the core of the many beautiful teachings received by the Mystical Musers who traveled to John of God in Brazil in March 2013 NE (ie New Era). Finding new ways to use personal will to support others and self, Myron will speak for the group, emphasizing New Era empowerment of sacred volition. We will look at the di…
 
January is a time when we let got the old and welcome in the new; a wonderful time to practice what Zen Master Shunryu Suzuki calls Zen Mind, Beginners Mind. He recommends a daily practice of releasing our minds to the winds, cleaning the slate, a mental state he calls "not-knowing". This puts us into clarity no matter what comes up (on a good day,…
 
Our holiday gathering in which we honor the Christ event and its message of Oneness and Joy. We will sing carols, listen to live music, enjoy deep silence together and muse on some New Era definitions of Christ Consciousness and how to attain and sustain it. This is a non-sectarian celebration, as always, and so we welcome everyone who wants to exp…
 
The New Era offers us the opportunity to call for joy to be our basic state of being. We are deeply supported in this request by the evolution toward Light that we are experiencing. This state of joy does not eliminate times of challenge, frustration, and impatience, nor does it erase all fear, anger, and grief. Despite the exuberance we can feel i…
 
Sustaining PresenceThe spiritual momentum of the moment continues, moving ever faster. How do we keep up? How do we sustain our sense of Presence as time flies by and distractions multiply? We have received some Guidance about what is needed on all levels--physical, emotional, mental, spiritual--to keep ourselves grounded in Divine Presence despite…
