Why Mystic Resistance Now?

 

Isn’t it obvious?

 

 

What is Mystic Resistance?

 

Mystic Resistance emanates from the heart, first, foremost, and always.

 

It resists injustice of any kind by embracing justice tempered with wisdom and compassion.

 

It transcends definitions or boundaries of specific religions, and instead looks for the common mystical ground that infuses the highest essence of all human spiritual traditions.

 

It acknowledges the resurgence of the Divine Feminine, and the need to counter the past 5000 years of patriarchy by re-creating an equalitarian partnership society that encompasses both Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine in an ever-changing, ever-balancing dance of joy.

 

Mystic Resistance is a call to Sacred Activism. It is inter-denominational, non-denominational, and secular humanist.

 

All you need to do is wish to perceive the Oneness of all Beings—what many refer to as the Buddha Nature or Christ Consciousness within all beings—and resolve to speak and act accordingly.

 

Mystic Resistance blossoms out of the seed of Unconditional Love, recognizing the paradox of living in a dualistic world while simultaneously existing in ultimate non-duality. We recognize that even those doing harm have a Buddha Nature/Christ Consciousness, and can open their hearts and become enlightened. Meanwhile, we non-violently resist their harmful actions, policies, and philosophies.

 

Mystic Resistance draws its strength from the inner mystic core of all human spiritual traditions, the rainbow diamond heart that makes all sentient beings One.

 

What is a Mystic? And Might You Be One?

 

The Oxford English Dictionary defines a mystic in the following way:

 

“A person who seeks by contemplation and self-surrender to obtain unity with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or who believes in the spiritual apprehension of truths that are beyond the intellect.”

 

However, you need not self-identify as a Mystic in order to appreciate Mystic Resistance. All you need to do is to dedicate yourself to relentless seeking of truth, and a hunger to live in love and compassion.

 

As the Persian Sufi poet Saadi wrote:

 

“Do not seek water, seek thirst.”

 

If you truly thirst for truth, wisdom, loving-kindness, and compassion, then Welcome to Mystic Resistance, and read on.
