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!

Through my self-reflections of late, I have become awake to that fact that, as a pattern inside me, I often feel like I am an add-on or an afterthought in relationships with people who I consider close. I recognize that I set myself up to feel this way because I give the initiative for...Read more
I have always pondered manifestation from the perspective of myself focused on manifesting some thing or other that I wanted or needed: What’s the science of how I use my mind to manifest? What is that supposed to feel like inside my being? And what are my results? Did it work? And if...Read more
This particular morning, I was on my way to help my dad take down a dying tree that was leaning toward the house. On my way, I thought to myself that I would like to see a bear. And not just any bear… I wanted to see a bear cub!
As my drive started to wind through forested areas...Read more
I had planned to go to a tango lesson and social dance. I work A LOT and it would be a nice break. Plus, I was curious about the teaching style of the guest artist who was coming from out of town to teach and perform that night. Since I can easily get lost in a work trance in front of...Read more
