From Jenny Wade:
Realness: Mystical states are experienced as insightful beyond the kinds of truth available to discursive intellect. They carry a sense of intrinsic authority.
Ineffability: Words cannot convey the full meaning and subjective impact of the experience.
The Crazy Realness of Mystical Experiences
I suspect most historical Mystics were considered crazy. I suspect the same goes for today’s Mystics.
Let’s face it, when you first came across this blog, you thought I was nuts.
Why? Because I talked about things that most people simply don’t experience: An intimate relationship with the Divine, hearing my own thoughts as if they were voices in my head, constant ongoing synchronicity, ….
But I don’t talk about these things like I believe them, I talk about them just like a crazy man talks about his hallucinations… I talk about them as if they are real.
I don’t act as if these are theories, I—just like a schizophrenic does—act as if these visions/experiences are indisputable.
Conversely though, if you and I were to talk in person about my thoughts on the Divine, you would notice something very different about my attitude than if you were to talk about the existence of God with a religious person: my attitude comes across as if I don’t care if you believe what I say or not.
Why? Because I don’t believe… I know.
She’s real to me, just like the sky appears blue to me. She’s real, the sky is blue, and there’s no reason to argue these points (or get emotionally upset about them). You won’t get that attitude from someone who believes—ie: the religious—because I simply don’t have the inner doubts which plague “believers.”
Mystics (until you get to know them) appear crazy because they are absolutely confident that what they experience is real—undeniably real. In this way, they act just as sure of themselves as an insane person is of his hallucinations.
The only difference is that the Mystic’s worldview—in a odd way—makes a certain amount of sense.
As any Mystic worth his salt will tell you, it’s practically impossible to accurately describe the state of Oneness—of what it is like to live like this.
I’ve often questioned why I blog. I’ve often wondered if it comes across as egotistical and self-centered. But She say write, so I write, and only recently has Her purpose become apparent.
The consistency of my “craziness,” the rational (if unprovable) arguments that I present, and the historical evidence (as recorded in this blog), are simply Her way of trying to convince you of one thing:
What you see isn’t as it appears. You should examine and question your core assumptions. You aren’t the person you think you are.
OK, that was three things—but really they all boil down to this:
Either I’m crazy…
or you are.
She/We/I will leave that for you to decide. 😯
