Mysticism offer the opportunity to have a transformation of consciousness that brings happiness, intelligence, and personal power. Mysticism involves an awakening of the perception of the most essential planes of reality, which are our very selves. These planes are the source of conscious and as real as physics and yet undiscovered or codified by modern science. While modern science has alluded to them in the fields of electromagnetism and quantum mechanics, they are not considered perceivable realities but rather logical conclusions based on empirical experiments.
Mysticism involves the perception of light. An inner light that is brilliant and profoundly transformative. This light can be seen as an actual visual perception that does not use the eyes but rather the mind as a perceptive faculty. To see the light is to become the light, which is the function by which we see beyond mundane sense perception. The perception of light is the definition of mysticism, and while this may not be used as a vehicle for conscious expansion for all mystics (those who can perceive on this level), it is a powerful approach to augmenting conscious perception the results in rapid change through what one might call the application of power.
Light is the result of love. Its power is not our own. The power of light is impersonal and comes through one’s consciousness when the individualized self is not asserting separative existence. Love. Its perception is the result of union, which occurs in the expansion of the essential substance of Self. Light is a dissolving agent that purifies one of impressions that have energetic manifestation in the aura and body, and is therefore a profound healing modality, perhaps the most profound, for it is the direct dissolution of the past, bringing one into their innate and unassailable eternal essence.
Meditation is about light. The apex of meditative practice includes the experience of light in some form, ultimately the purest light of nirvana. While this may not be emphasized by all great spiritual teachers who have attained the highest levels of consciousness, the presence of light is an indicator of conscious expansion. Various practices in meditation help us to move toward the ability to perceive light. Metaphysics, which may be defined as the perception of the hidden planes of energy, perhaps electromagnetic, includes energy work relating to the energetic vortices and other bioelectromagnetic structures which comprise the subtle biological system. This form of healing work, including kundalini yoga, tai chi, pranayama, and various other occult practices, is not as deep or profound as energy work done at the level of mysticism, which involves light. The reason for this is light is the source of this subtly physical manifestation, light is the essence of energy. Light is formless, energy has form. One may consider light a form of energy, but it may be more semantically clear to call it the power and substance of consciousness. The fabric of the dream of dimensionality, the creator of perception, including the perception of occult bio-energetic structures and environmental energetic forms. Therefore, light is the apex of spiritual practice, it being the substance of spirit.
To experience light one must attune to it within the psychic field of experience. To do so one must be directed through an empathic transmission or reverberation with an individual who has themselves learned to hold their awareness field in a state fluid enough to allow the ambient essence of reality to prevail. This form of transmission is a teaching at the esoteric level, meaning it can not be conveyed through intellect. Exoteric intellectual structures can inspire one to seek the esoteric. Comprehending mystical experiences at the intellectual level can be used to deepen mystical experiences, but do not bring that experience on their own.
Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of love. Mysticism is the the yoga of light, and is also called Raja Yoga. Both take you to the divine center or ultimate truth. Advanced meditation practice includes all the aspects of oneself and their life. Between meditations one lives meditation through a natural and effortless virtue that comes from humility and love. Life is energy work, as every action taken informs ones energetic state.
To experience a transformation of consciousness one must do more than meditate. To live as love with its intelligence and guidance in all situations, is to have virtue. Virtue comes naturally when one is in a state of consciousness where they see correctly what is, ultimately that we are one, and therefore acts on behalf of the totality. Love cannot be selfish. A complete spiritual practice involves a formal meditation practice in which one prioritized a return to essence as light, as well as an understanding of life in which one lives mindfully as an expression of virtue. Working with a spiritual teacher includes cultivation of both aspects of one’s being.
Love and light are not the only path to greater consciousness. Both will be present for the advanced mystic, but the path or means of transformation can be something else. For example, jnana yoga is the yoga of discovering the true self as knowledge. When one knows this, they are love and light. Or karma yoga, in which one acts in service as a conduit of god’s will, acts to liberate one from the confines of separate existence. Or tantra, which is an extremely advanced practice in which one acts intuitively in accordance with truth, leaving behind all paths, doctrines, and ideals. All of these yogas result in the true seeing of reality that comes from transcending individuality.
