    I'm just looking for friends who are into Christian mysticism because it's hard going on a physical spiritual journey alooonnne.... lol... It's easier when there's people around you who are going through the same thing..

    What do you consider a "mystic" though?

    A mystic, broadly speaking, is one who knows God, rather than just 'believing' or having faith.


    Many Catholic mystics from the past are well worth looking at - Miester Eckhart, St. Theresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross etc.
     
  7. Well you're def. cute.

    Well the first step is to drop the "christian" before mysticism. It's an oxymoron. Like tryin to mix Oil and water. They don't go together.

    Why?
    The fundamental basis of X-tianity is somthing "greater" then you. Follow this formula.

    If all you are is Awareness, then how can anything be outside your Awareness?

    Well I guess I've had some experiences... I try not to label it one thing or another, but maybe if you described it...

    I a Christian Mystic, to some extent haha....... well I just am really. I am a member of the Christian Universalist Association and am staunch Panentheist! I take on Christian and Biblical doctrine of Christ giving salvation through savrifice...but like most Christian Mysticists ... well the forum said it lol, theres more than meets the eye. I suppose we can confer beliefs some other hour.
