The Mystic's Message

(un)Common Wisdom to Quiet the Mind and Soothe the Spirit

The Mystics Message is (un)Common wisdom to quiet the mind and soothe the spirit. I know how noisy it can be living in this world- the inside and outside voices all mingling. It’s hard sometimes to hear that quiet voice of your Soul.

The Mystics Message is that voice. Speaking quietly in your ear, yet somehow cutting through all the chatter. The other voices will blur into the background for just a moment, and you'll hear exactly what you need.

Maybe it’s an idea. Maybe it’s only one word, or a new perspective on an ancient truth. Whatever it is, it’s yours. Take it. Nurture it as your own. 

Look for the treasures. Even I don't know where all of them are because they weren't put there by me. I only write it, and I’ll be honest, I don’t know where this thing is going. I only know that it’s important.

Every post is written in the spirit of love, charity, brotherhood, and a deep longing to share the things we hold most dear.

That spirit guides me as I write to you every week. That spirit is the essence of The Mystics Message, whatever form it may take. 

So take a deep breath. Put your hand on your heart. You’re exactly where you need to be.

Welcome, my friend!

And when someone close to you does this, you might feel betrayed, and start to question...

What happened to the person I knew? 

Is this who they've always been? 

Were all the wonderful parts just an illusion? A setup? 

It's often easier to be cynical about the whole thing and believe it was just that; It m…

Positively Blocked

The other day I got blocked by a "positivity" coach, and the reason why is more disturbing than you might think…

I know that I can be a little much sometimes. As a Gen Xer, sarcasm was something of a love language growing up. I know this about myself, and I really do try to keep it in check.

So when a “positivity” coach slid into my DMs promoting their “positive” content, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. I clicked their link. I read their meme.

And I really wanted to let it slide...

A lifetime of...?

One of my favorite pans is a simple cast iron. 

I remember buying it a good 15 years back. Bright eyed and ready to explore a new style of cooking. 

I also remember cleaning the dust off it just a few year years ago. Because for most of those years I hardly ever used it. 

It was messy. It took forever to clean. 

Everything I put it in came out charred on the outside and raw on the inside. But there was nothing wrong with the pan. I just didn't know what I was doing. 

I neglected it. 

I did…
