Are You there, God? You feel very close to God for a moment, during a hymn, during prayer, for a few hours or days and then it’s gone.
Prayer & meditation should never be regarded as a science or reduced to a system because it is essentially a living and personal relationship, which tends to become more personal and more simple, as one goes on.
Jesus’ rescuing love sets the standard for Christian holiness & transfigures the lives of those who are fellow workers with God.
To be a mystic is simply to participate here and now in that real and eternal life; in the fullest, deepest sense. It is to share, as a free and conscious agent—not a servant, but a son — in God’s Kingdom, sweeping through pain and glory towards home in God.
