As I sat down to reply to Kor by email, a pouring out of the Spirit came upon me which capsulized what our website The Mystical Path is all about. I am now sharing that message of unfoldment below.

    Thank you for your message of appreciation, Kor.

    The website is truly a marvel of spiritual unfoldment from within. It started with only one Web page and the first blog back in 2010. Over the years, the site grew larger with more pages that were spun off as new material was added and included. Throughout that time, I did not consciously plan the development of the site. It was and is literally an unfolding activity guided by the inner Spirit of God.

    Much of how the site has developed and been organized follows the pattern of my growth along the mystical path of life during the last almost forty years of my life. As I have come to see things, I have discerned the pure distillation of the mystical teaching common to all major religious cultures and systems of true mysticism or higher spirituality in human history.

    There is only one principle of the Truth teaching, and it is Oneness. This is the “what” of mysticism. Everything else found in religious or scriptural texts and taught by religion is an exposition and elaboration of that principle in the course of man’s futile finite efforts to intellectually grasp, understand and convey the mysterious infinite nature of the Oneness underlying all things.

    As a principle of truth, Oneness is not meant to be believed in or understood by the human mind as a doctrine or dogma of religious faith. Rather, it is meant to be directly experienced by individuals and actualized in every individual’s life. This is the purpose behind contemplation or meditation practice — the process for the inner realization of the Truth of Oneness — the “how” or way of mysticism.

    The result of the process is the “spiritual awakening” of the individual (the so-called enlightenment of the mind or illumination of the soul), out of which the collective spiritual upliftment of the human race and world peace ultimately will arise. It is through this awakening that we come to understand our Trinitarian component of Consciousness (Father God), Mind (Mother God), and the Individuation of Consciousness as the divine Selfhood of who we truly are (the Christ, Buddha, Prophet, Avatar, etc. of God). The total integration in Oneness of these components and aspects of being is the pure, simple and natural goal of what I term contemporary mysticism. It is the singular purpose of human existence on this dimensional earth plane; all else in life is an expression and personal experience of the integration attained (or the lack thereof).

    I have long marveled at how modern science, the new physics, and the newer sciences of theoretical/quantum physics and neuroscience particularly are now supporting contemporary mysticism as I have learned and comprehended it. Science, which started out in the Age of Reason and Enlightenment struggling against the ignorance in most religions, is now increasingly becoming a strong ally and tool in validating and disclosing the mystical teachings. For this reason, I saw fit to show and share the growing relationship between mysticism and science in the “science connection” segments of the website.

    Again, thank you for appreciating our website, Kor. Do continue to discover and explore our website. It is as much yours as it is mine. Let me know if I can be of further service to you on the mystical path of life. Please find my contact information below.

    Peace and blessings in the oneness of God.

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of personal study, practice and spiritual unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission. Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s. Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual instruction and transformation. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work. Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
