Mystic practices keep us from enjoying God’s almighty power. We are called to walk by faith – forgiven, eternally loved and enjoying peace that exceeds all understanding.
It was only several months after my conversion that I realized how people who sought mysticism had a gloom to them, just like I had as an atheist. They couldn’t see it, but I could.
And I did not want that “life” anymore.
I wanted the glowing love and peace that I saw in people who relied exclusively on God and had a personal relationship with him. I knew that was only possible when we became completely free from a religion, denomination or practice.
Mystic practices and rituals like astrology, hypnosis, meditation and healers are for those who don’t walk by faith. For those who haven’t experienced the almighty power of God’s love yet.
As a catholic, I was open to mystic practices that never brought good to my life. I was even more open to them when I became an atheist, after realizing the God of religion did not exist.
Even after my conversion, I was still open to mysticism. The vast majority of us who call ourselves believers continue to be misguided about God’s calling and pursue rituals. But there is always time to turn completely to his loving wisdom.
There’s no greater power than the eternal love from the One who created everything, including you and I.
Thanks to Jesus’ teachings, we understand that all we have to do is believe onto him and love one another. Then God will make his home in us and lead us with his powerful loving grace.
