Mystical Experiences

Half of the American population now claims to have had “a mystical experience,” a statistic that suggests we are in the process of returning to the idea of faith as an encounter with God.

A short column today:
I’m not afraid to say that I’m one of the half of Americans who claim to have had a mystical experience.  In fact I’ve written about it here before in the column called:
Been There.  Done That

There have been other times where I’ve felt the Hand of God directing my life, but NEVER have I felt a physical experience such as what I described in the above column before.  I’m convinced that hand pulling me to my feet was my own divine intervention, my own God lifting me up.  There was NOTHING mystical about it.  Mystical in my mind refers to the unknown.  This experience that I had was FAR FROM unknown.  That’s only because I’ve carried this strong faith with me my entire life however.  I can’t help but wonder what another person who doesn’t have the same strong faith would think if they had a similar experience.

Would they even understand what had happened?
Would they suddenly believe that there is a divine presence in everyone’s life and you only have to reach out to it?

What do you think?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Chris
