Etymologically, mysticism refers to secret knowledge into which one must be initiated. Part of the mind knows that we are forever one with our source, and that part of the mind must initiate the remainder, which believes that we are entities separate both from our source and from each other. The Gospel of Thomas concludes: “Heaven is spread out across the earth, but people do not see it.” Our union with our source is not visible and can only be known. The poems of Love | Source | Joy often begin by describing the phenomenal world and then attempt to show how such a world might appear to a mind that remembers its source. That is why they are mystic hymns and sonnets.
