At every moment, we are somewhere along the road of the journey of the son of God. The key to mystical power lies in understanding and accepting our place in the journey at a particular time.
If you’re at the beginning of something and everything’s great, then by all means be happy, but do not take things for granted. If your experiencing the meanness or betrayal of the world, then by all means be sad, but know that you are not defeated. If you are in the midst of your resurrection and rebirth, then do not forget to praise and give thanks. As mystics, we are aware of the phases of the journey, that the phases might flow more perfectly through our lives.
