Aspiring Mystic Blog

The Aspiring Mystic blog is a collection of personal stories of first-hand experiences of challenge and insight native to walking the mystical path. All stories are factual and true as experienced by the author.

Each Aspiring Mystic blog post contains two parts:

  • The Art: A personal experience of insight or other sharable significance, true as recalled by the author
  • The Science: Explication written by Sacred Reality staff examining one or more issues demonstrated in the personal experience that universally impact everyone's journey of self-inquiry along the mystical spiritual path

The art sections of the blog posts are available to all. The science sections are written for Sacred Reality members: those who feel personally supported by the way Sacred Reality discusses the truth of being human and who thus feel good about giving a little something to support the ministry in return.

So, read, explore, enjoy. If it resonates and you want to become a member, welcome!
