I have been thinking about the word "mystic"...and how to renew "mystical" in my journey. So, I have pulled Hildegard's "Book of Divine Works" and randomly picked this passage from one of her visions, where it seems that the Mystery of God is speaking to her:
And thus I remain hidden in every kind of reality as a fiery power. Everything burns because of me in such a way as our breath constantly moves us, like the wind-tossed flame in a fire. All of this lives in its essence, and there is no death in it. For I am life. I am also Reason, which beats within itself the breath of the resounding Word, through which the whole of creation is made. I breathe life inot everything so that nothing is mortal in respect to its species. For I am life.
Honestly, I don't really know what most of that means, but I love the taste and sound of the words strung together...mystical.
May the Mystery of God and your inner mystic surprise you with life today.
