The Mystic's A Beginning Discussion

What People Crave

So much of what people seek in life involves raising their level of consciousness. Don't you — don't all of us — seek to experience a life which is rewarding and full of meaning, rather than a life of conflict, confusion and chaos? Don’t we yearn to know ourselves and others more profoundly — more truly? Don’t all of us seek well being, insight and the inner power to change our lives in many ways?

Wouldn't you like higher knowledge and amazing insights regarding your problems and concerns? Wouldn't you like to contact your Higher Self and discover your connection with the Infinite Consciousness?

Do you seek a peace and clarity which thrills and restores you? Do you seek a love that lasts and isn’t a fraud? Would you like to exchange your years of accumulated stress and anxiety for a new era of ecstasy and personal achievement? Would you like to establish an ongoing sense of well being and participate in the gratifying creation of a better world?

Don't you have deep questions within you which ache for answers? Perhaps you frequently feel that you are meant to be a finer, more fulfilled, and happier person: you yearn to be free of old limitations and be more delightfully alive!

If you, too, murmur these vital questions, feel similar feelings, and recognize these yearnings as your own, you are a mystic by nature. You are a candidate for higher consciousness!
