Mystical Experiences are utterly mysterious and difficult to articulate, but it’s common enough that we have reports of mystical experiences across time and cultures. It’s a state of consciousness, a phenomenon that simply happens to us and we don’t know why. It’s impossible to achieve through your own efforts alone, because it’s given to you—by grace.
