What is mystical? The image of a mystical experience that I have is when you get to the edges of things as separate and different, and then fall off or beyond that edge to where you are beyond seeing things at all. Then, from that space you look back on the world of differences, and see that all is one. This experience, at first, gives way to things as separate and different when you come out of the mystical experience and return to the daily life of this and that. But over time, with enough of these you will have a more ongoing experience of the oneness of all. Separateness will be reflected upon as an illusion. Then you will love yourself and be able to love your neighbor as yourself and even love all creation. Maybe the survival of our world will depend upon mystics. We have a big job!
