this blog is the continuation of a genuine mystical tradition, unless you get in daily contemplative time and abstain to a significant degree from "entertainment" then you are just wasting your time and mine !

do you think songhill is a mystic ? http://terebess.hu/zen/mesterek/DarkZen.html
i always use the phrase "quality mysticism" to distinguish the sort of "pyschward crap" that people like songhill spill, from the genuine greats like john of the cross, teresa of avilia, catherine of siena, rabia al-basri, sappho, al-'arabimysticism is a broad brush and it's really hard to get used the fact that people like songhill and gesshin who have invested huge amounts of time into what they pretend is authentic "mysticism" in fact are really playing golf or a card game, just sloughing off anything real like an ill fitting coat . . look at this poem of al 'arabi, to read songhill in comparison is to wipe one's face with dung !http://www.ibnarabisociety.org/articles/sellswaystations.htmlalso a good page of bedouin poetry showing the nomadic life, none of this islamic "shopping mall" bullshit so current now !https://ag.arizona.edu/OALS/ALN/aln50/hayward.html
