I learn so much from writing this book. For example, expectations are a lot like assumptions: They are unexamined until they are thrown in your face.

Writing the opening paragraphs to the Living As A Mystic chapter (sub-chapter?), revealed a simple truth:

It is the expectation of the Divine that defines a Mystic.

Here’s what I wrote today—what I realized today: 

Living As A Mystic

The life of the Mystic is vastly different than the lives of most. The Mystic experiences TaoGod directly. To the Mystic, God is not some invisible and distant fatherly figure—not a being to be believed in—but a presence that is as real as every person, creature or object on the planet.

This “realness of God” is not something the Mystic just one day decides on, but is gradually revealed as his Ego Aspect weakens and the signs, siddhis, and synchronicities increase. As his ego softens, the number of odds-defying “coincidences” rise dramatically, and with each occurrence, the spiritual seeker’s confidence grows.

One day—much to his surprise—the seeker realizes that he has come to expect the signs and the siddhis and the synchronicities. He realizes that he no longer believes in God, but expects God. And it was with this realization—this expectation of the Divine—that the seeker leaves behind his doubts and discovers that he has unknowingly become a Mystic.

The Mystic experiences a relationship with TaoGod. Just as two lovers separated across timezones subtly feel their lover’s presence in all they say and do, the Mystic feels the Divine’s presence everywhere he goes and in all he experiences.

In every sound, he hears Her song. In every touch, he feels Her caress. In every taste, he feels Her kiss.

Everyday his lover—TaoGod Herself—leans gently on his shoulder and whispers sweet words of wisdom and guidance into his ear. And the Mystic’s life—when he listens to Her whispers—flows effortlessly.

The Mystic lives in an intimate relationship with TaoGod—the Mystic swims in God. And because this relationship is mutual, God swims in the Mystic as well.

Where do you end and your lover begin? Understand this relationship, and you’ll understand the life of the Mystic.

  1. very good post. thanks. I use to call this “magical or mystical life” synchronicity, and from my past experience this synchronicity would only occur on rare occasions.

    now days, not a day goes by, when life just falls into place. even something, that in the past, I would have labeled “negative” or an unfortunate event, now days turns out to be a treasure hidden. it is the strangest thing.

    what really cranks my left nut is when I am pondering about some kind of speed bump in my perception, and I can just randomly switch my USB to someone like Ady, and not only will he be talking about the very thing I was pondering about, but use the very same words. and this is not a one time thing. it happens over and over. just amazing, as I am sure you know, and the real weird thing is that I am not “enlightened” or even “awakened”, and have only had some peaks under the skirt of reality so to speak. what an amazing life. never could have guessed it. cheers.

    • “just amazing, as I am sure you know, and the real weird thing is that I am not “enlightened” or even “awakened”, and have only had some peaks under the skirt of reality so to speak.”

      Isn’t that amazing? No one needs to be “enlightened” to get those peeks of the Divine. All it takes is less of this me-me-me thing. That’s it. Just less. Thanks for the comment.

  2. What a great post Wayne! Very eloquent and profound. Your book is going to be a real cracker if this is the quality we can expect.
    You reminded me that it is a while since I’ve been having any of those lovely synchronicitous moments. No wonder, as I can feel my ego needs a bit of softening again.

  3. Perfect synchronicity!
    Over the last few days I have been trying to come up with simple definitions of “belief” vs “faith”. Belief is thinking something is true in the absence of evidence. Easy enough. But to say that faith is “knowing” something is true without evidence is more of an arbitrary assertion than a definition.
    Out of the blue you have provided the answer.
    Faith is actually the “expectation” that has been “gradually revealed as …Ego Aspect weakens and the signs, siddhis, and synchronicities (evidences) increase.”
    Am I interpreting your intent correctly?
    Also, I have experienced that synchronicities not only increase in frequency, but they evolve from curious coincidences, to a kind of wish fulfillment (more like favors), to actual answers to serious spiritual questions (like above).
    Can you speak to this?

    • “Am I interpreting your intent correctly?” – Yes.

      “Also, I have experienced that synchronicities not only increase in frequency, but they evolve from curious coincidences, to a kind of wish fulfillment (more like favors), to actual answers to serious spiritual questions (like above).”

      My experiences are the same, and zen pig’s (above) seem to match that. Every serious spiritual seeker that I have spoke with seems to concur that life works out/lines up far more often as they grow spiritually.

      And I’d agree with your progression (plus some additions (don’t hold me to the order, as this is just off the top of my head)): Curious coincidences -> Subtle wish fulfillment -> (Precognition) -> Answers -> (Insights (my “monthly cycle”)) -> (Guidance (being led to/from places: the guru appears)) -> (Translating (saying to someone what She wants you to say, writing what someone needs to hear: guru speaks about what seeker was wondering)) -> …?

      Thanks for pointing this out. I hadn’t considered the evolution of the siddhis.

    • Re-reading the order, I’d probably change it (still not having thought about it for more than a few minutes though):

      • Synchronicity (signs)
      • Subtle wish fulfillment (life lining up)
      • Answers appearing externally
      • Precognition (“hearing” the Answers internally)
      • Insights (“hearing” wisdom)
      • Translating (repeating what you “hear” in the moment)
      • Guidance (hearing and following Her immediate “act now” directions)
  4. I have experienced all these levels except, I think, the last. It helps to see them in a progression like that. It seems to me that hearing and following Her immediate directions takes a lot of stillness and presence.
