The Path of the Mystic


The path of the Mystic
is beyond words.

It is a fall into the Heart of Darkness
in which the self is sacrificed over and over again.

The mystic dies into God
and yet returns to the World
to offer the self as the ultimate sacrifice.

This offering serves the totality,
it is the giving of formlessness to form
so that form may come
to know its own true nature.

It is the Tantra of Life.
It is the Way of the Mystic.

When chaos appears in your World,
when disturbance appears in your mind,
when desolation appears in your emotional body,
do not turn away assuming that there has been some mistake.

Do not try to bury that
which hurts in the recesses
of your consciousness,
for this that appears
so dark and dangerous
is in fact an offering of light.

It is a call for Death
that allows a Resurrection.

In the surrender
to complete annihilation
of that part of you
that clings to an idea of self-identity
based on a picture created in the mind,
there is a relaxation
around the terror of non-existence.

This relaxation allows
all false concepts of self
– even ones that provide
a sense of security as the “I”
– to be offered into
the Fire of Transmutation.

Out of the ashes of this offering,
arises the Phoenix
with wings of gold.

This is the birth
of a new
awakened consciousness,
more transparent
and more luminous
than anything you could
imagine yourself to be.

When all hell breaks loose,
my friend, do not waste
this opportunity for falling into
the arms of the Beloved.

For this is
who You truly are.
