“Albert Einstein once described his creative moments as “muscular.” There’s a consciousness we’re capable of that integrates our various dimensions. It’s joyful to be there because it feels like we’ve broken through constrictions which normally hold us back. This kind of spontaneous integration is not so out of the ordinary, so much as it is not part of ordinary conversation. It is under-discussed, under-investigated, invalidated as too soft or even ridiculed as nonsense. Mystical thought is trivialized, diminished, even labeled inane by our gatekeepers, but spiritual concepts are breaking into the vernacular despite the resistance of a materialistic bias.
Science will one day validate the mystical experience – in fact it has already begun to do so – but this waiting around for science to tell us that the sky is blue is becoming an increasingly unacceptable slowing down of the spiritual wagon train. Who’s giving permission to whom? The mystical experience doesn’t need the world at all, but the world desperately needs the mystical experience.”
Marianne Williamson, in “Illuminata”
