A few years back, I was working as a massage therapist at an upscale retreat center in the Catskills. One summer day, I was driving to work, off to give a “couple’s massage” …a type of massage done with another therapist and two clients, side-by-side. With my sunroof open and my...Read more
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!
As I write this, our world community faces a major disruption of normal activities due to Covid-19. Fear and concern for safety are on the rise as reported cases of viral infection and death climb in the news all around. In the very town in which I live, there has been at least one...Read more
Being in love with someone can be very tricky territory. Things are truly simple and easy when one holds the heart space. But with such a swirl of good feelings and frequent interaction with someone, it’s very easy to fall asleep into an ego dream of love and have zero awareness of...Read more
At this time of my life, I was working with the lessons in A Course in Miracles, and I had built up a discipline of suspending my judgements, which therefore created space for the Holy Spirit to have enough room to allow me to receive and be bestowed with miracles. I had come...Read more
One day in November last year, I was driving around and listening to The Moth radio hour. A man was telling a story of parenting his two teenage boys on matters of sexuality. The subject came up because the boys’ mom had caught each one on two different occasions surreptitiously...Read more
I went to a beach party late Saturday night, after my shift waiting tables. The party was for someone I really didn’t know that well; yet I was invited. So I thought: why not, plus the night was warm and breezy. I can’t explain it, but this night felt like there was a magical feeling...Read more
Throughout my spiritual journey, my ability to experience love has changed. I always had a very high ideal of love. I always believed that love was, in its purest form, absolute, unconditional and perfectly stable. That was a hope that kept me striving ever higher to achieve that...Read more
Upon waking, I realized I felt like reading my friend’s manuscript… finally. He had sent it with me on my vacation, hoping I would read it on the plane and have feedback for him upon my return home. I did not read en route, however, due to the minor but constant random vehicular motion...Read more
The other day, I had a spontaneous turn around in how I see my body. I think what comes next in this piece might be a slightly taboo topic. So, I’ll handle it with tact, and hopefully we can all be adults about it. :)
I had always viewed the various liquids and solids my body...Read more
I've always had a love for Jesus. But not in the religious sense. I was never religious nor was I ever raised that way. I think this affinity became known to me around the age of 6 or so. I can't really explain where it came from. It just was.
As a young girl, I just assumed...Read more
