Home > Religion & Beliefs > Mysticism
Mysticism may be described as spiritual practice and experience which goes beyond the liturgical and devotional forms of worship of mainstream faith, often by seeking out inner or esoteric meanings of conventional religious doctrine. Practices may include prayer, contemplation and meditation, along with chanting and other activities designed to heighten spiritual awareness.
Whereas Christian doctrine generally maintains that God dwells in all Christians and that they can experience God directly through belief in Jesus, Christian mysticism aspires to apprehend spiritual truths inaccessible through intellectual means, typically by learning how to think like Christ, and become like Christ.
The sites in this webring may deal with anthroposophy, Biblical prophecy, meditation/contemplation, history, qabala, alchemy, and other focii of esoteric Christianity, including personal insights and teachings.
