Having laid the foundation for Practical Mysticism in Part 1, William Meader goes on to discuss the difference between Mysticism and Practical Mysticism. He makes the distinction between the Lower Mind and the Higher Mind as we move from the age of Pisces to the age of Aquarius. Humanity is at a time of profound change on this planet and new ways of being and becoming are being called forth.
For centuries, mysticism has been a major force in our quest to experience God and the spiritual dimension of life. Our yearning to find relationship with the Divine is ancient, and has been an instinctual impulse within us since the dawning hour of humankind. Though mysticism has been the emphasis of the past, it is gradually evolving into a new and more enlightened approach to God and our understanding of spiritual living. This new approach has been called Practical Mysticism.
