A mystic is not a mysterious person...

A mystic is not a mysterious person but is one who has a deep inner sense of Life and Unity with the Whole. A mystic is one who intuitively perceives Truth and who, without mental process, arrives at Spiritual realizations. It is from the teachings of the great mystics that the best in the philosophy of the world has come. They intuitively sense Reality and instinctively know the Truth and in this way all the best in art have come. The great poets have been true mystics, true philosophers are mystics, old prophets were mystics, the greatest music ever composed was written by the hand of mystics and the highest and best art has come from the same source.
Man has compelled nature to do his bidding; he has harnessed electric energy, caught the wind, trapped steam and made them all obey his will. He has invented machines to do the work of thousands; he has belted the globe with his traffic but in few cases he has conquered his own soul.
Mystics have revealed Eternal verities and taught us that there is a Living Presence indwelling All.
Mystics have revealed things that do not pass as ships in the night!
