Call in to speak with the host
If you want to seek wisdom, there are two general paths open to you. They can be complimentary, or contradictory. One is the path of the mystic: You seek direct knowledge and experience of divinity by having a magical relationship with a mysterious presence, perhaps called God. The other is the path of the religious devotee: You go to church (synagogue, mosque, temple, etc.), you master prayers, rituals, and religious teachings. These two paths should not be in tension, but so many people now say they are spiritual, not religious. What's wrong with religion?
What does it mean to be a mystic? What does it mean to be spiritual? Are religion and spirituality really opposite?
I talked with John Clark about his mystical experience.
