Jesus as Mystic

"Jesus was a mystic in the sense that he lived in conscious awareness of the transcendent reality of God. Everything we admire about the life of Jesus – his compassion, wise teaching, mighty acts, and sacrifice – were funded by the private disciplines of his inner life – how he learned to be tuned into the presence and power of God’s song.  He demonstrated that the transforming power of God’s kingdom is accessed through receptivity, mindful surrender, study, simplicity, silence, and solitude. Through the example of his life, we are invited to follow a path of a mystic."

'Soul Graffitti: Making a Life in the Way of Jesus' by Mark Scandrette
