I have nothing really ready to post today so I re-post a bit of Richard Rohr’s meditation for today.  Check it out and sign up – it’s good stuff!

 Don’t let the word “mystic” scare you off. It simply means one who has moved from mere belief systems or belonging systems to actual inner experience. All spiritual traditions agree that such a movement is possible, desirable, and available to everyone. In fact, Jesus seems to say that divine union is the whole point! (See, for example, John 10:28-38 or John 15:1-9.)
