The mystic uses their intuition a great deal, and endeavors to see into the future and to look beyond appearances. She or he reads others’ souls and hearts. A mystic does everything they can to rise up above suffering and despair; they go past the clouds and so glimpse the Sun; being both on their own and connected to the great All, they never forget that to accomplish great things we must be able to do small ones perfectly. The mystic knows that duty well carried out is an act of love and of service; and that for the service to have its full meaning, it must be selfless. It must be a gift of oneself to others, joyously agreed to, and not undergone as a great sacrifice. Love and giving should not be likened to suffering and renunciation, quite the reverse: were this the case, it would no longer be a question of love, but of masochistic behavior. True service only gives rise to good feelings, and expects nothing in return.

As mystics throughout time have found, the road to discovery, to peace and enlightenment is a journey into Self. There is more to our conscious being than we realize and it is from within that we find the keys which unlock our inner wisdom. It is from within that we can connect with the source of knowledge that lies beyond the limits of our five senses.

The same stream of life that runs through the world runs through my veins night and day and dances in rhythmic measure. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth into the numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of flowers.

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

Sophia – City of Dreams – Land and Sky Island Continent – Atlantis Avalon Stormhold

From the crossroads of Wizard City, pathways to hell and heaven
Technology meets magic, meditation and ritual — Yoga
Beyond petty jealousy — Recriminations and deceit
I want to be what I pretend — Free from darkness and doubt
Alright with uncertainty, but only a little bit
Not tied down by the past yet aware of all our history
Together — A planet, a people — You and me, friends and family
Unconditional love she taught me how to feel — Even through pain
She did not wish to inflict on me, because of my own attachment
To an ideal version of her that does not really exist, except in dreams
Yet I still think she is perfect, as are you, even in her imperfections
Beauty such that it makes me cry inside to think about how full of light
She is, despite the darkness — Infinite beauty despite the terror
I will always love her no matter what happens — Changes and growth
Moving closer and apart, yet always there remains a connection
Beyond limitations of time and space, across the cosmos and lifetimes
I remember who she is — From the beginning I know she is my soulmate
Again and again we meet — Through many lifetimes and situations
Worlds and worlds — We separate, sometimes under bad circumstances
Pain and heartbreak between us and others perhaps, but I can never stop
Loving her — Impossible to change without growing, becoming
Closer to perfection while even far away, duality of life, but getting better
She understands all of this perhaps better than I do — Just one more reason
Why I love her more than anyone else I can think of, even myself
I look forward to learning more from her, growing, changing
As we pass through lives, worlds, universes — Together even when apart
Even when apart, I think of you, before and after meeting you for the first time
In this life, beginning again and again — Imagination, soul of becoming
Within being, flower of life and understanding growing out of the darkness into light
And from light into darkness — Always there in all times and places — Infinite emergence
