ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY MYSTICISM, EVELYN UNDERHILL, MYSTICS, GOD IS SPIRIT SO WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT

When we draw close to God in contemplation and prayer, we soon form a spiritual life (Mystical life) with God.  This is called Christian Mysticism and is healthy and entirely different from far eastern spiritualism; which does not recognize Jesus as the Son of God.  Read about Christian Mysticism in the below article.

By Frank E. Henrich June 1, 2009 Evelyn Underhill is one of my major silent tutors. She was an English author of many books on Christian mysticism, which is the search for God through recollection and contemplation. She was born in 1875 in England and died in 1941. I never met her.
     When I realized that God is spirit and was searching through the Bible for understanding; of course prayer and times of contemplation followed. In 1980 I found Evelyn’s books and they helped me to grow in God and so I thank God for her life and her written thoughts. In 1991, when in England visiting my daughter, I visited the site where she conducted her Christian retreats. Christian mysticism or contemplation differs from its oriental counterpart. Evelyn was very orthodox in her Christian beliefs and attended church services regularly. The Bible tells us that Jesus said the Holy Spirit will come and dwell with each of us. Christian mysticism is a searching for God with this focus.
     In her book Practical Mysticism, I will quote below from pages 155-57. I have added by ( ) marks  to the quote below to help you understand some of her terms as we use them today. This book was first published in 1915 and still is being reprinted today.
     “To “bring Eternity (here she means the spiritual control of the world by God) into time (here she means our present world ),  the “invisible into concrete expression”; to “be to the Eternal Goodness (God) what his own hand is to the man” – these are the plainly expressed desires of all the great mystics. One and all, they demand earnest and deliberate action, the insertion of the purified and ardent will into the world of things. The mystics are artists; and the stuff in which they work is most often human life. They want to heal the disharmony between the actual and the real; and since, in the white-hot radiance of that faith, hope, and charity which burns in them, they discern such a reconciliation to be possible, they are able to work for it with a singleness of purpose and an invincible optimism denied to other men. This was the instinct which drove St. Francis of Assisi to the practical experience of that poverty which he recognized as the highest wisdom; St. Catherine of Siena from contemplation to politics; Joan of Arc to the salvation of France; St. Teresa to the formation of an ideal religious family; Fox to the proclaiming of a world-religion in which all men should be guided by the Inner Light; Florence Nightingale to battle with officials, vermin, dirt and disease in the soldiers’ hospitals; Octavia Hill to make in London slums something a little nearer “the shadows of the angels’ houses” than that which the practical landlord usually provides.
     All these mystics have felt sure that a great part in the drama of creation has been given to the free spirit of man; that bit by bit, through and by him, the scattered worlds of love and thought and action shall be realized again as one. It is for those who have found the thread on which world are strung to bring this knowledge out of the hiddenness; to use it. 
     So here is your vocation set out; a vocation so various in its opportunities that you can hardly fail to find something to do. It is your business to actualize within the world of time and space – perhaps by great endeavors in the field of heroic action, perhaps only by small ones in field and market, tram and tube, office and drawing-room, in the perpetual give-and-take of common life – that more real life, that holy creative energy, which this world manifests as a whole but indifferently. You shall work for mercy, order, beauty, significance; shall mend where you find things broken, make where you find the need.” (end of quotation) 
     Evelyn describes above, in a clearer way than I could express as the reason why I write poems and devotional writings and the focus of my Christian work. What Evelyn wrote 90 years ago describes me and my Christian work so perfectly even though I am too small a fry to call myself a mystic. She also wrote the quotation in the column to the right.

EVELYN UNDERHILL, ONE OF THE CHRISTIAN MYSTICS, WROTE A BOOK ABOUT ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY MYSTICISM CALLED PRACTICAL MYSTICISM. IT IS A MOST EXCELLENT BOOK.

Christian mysticism is a charismatic walk in the spirit seeking in contempation direct divine spiration. We seek God as did St. Francis and Evelyn Underhill in spiritual Christianity using the mystic walk or way knowing that god is spirit aa we want love. Yes we walk in the spirit.

FIND GOD, KINGDOM OF GOD, ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY MYSTICISM, EVELYN UNDERHILL, MYSTICS

Evelyn Underhill like St. Francis gave us examples of Christian Mysticism when they spoke of the walk in spirit with a God who is spirit. In contemplation thru spiritual christianity we have a mystic walk where we seek God in a charismatic way seeking direct divine inspiration. Yes, we want love.

THE KISS OF A CHRISTIAN MYSTIC

Our time and energy are claimed by our passions.
What pursuits steal your time and energy?
For a Christian Mystic, could it be a kiss?

The kiss of a mystic
   Springs forward outward
In silent adoration 
   To a loving Saviour.

The kiss is a prayer 
   In adoration supreme
Dusts the silent air with 
   A longing for the unseen.

Silently penetrating forth 
   Into the singing silence
Of tranquility abundant, 
   A simple message of love.

GOD IS SPIRIT SO WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY MYSTICISM, EVELYN UNDERHILL, MYSTICS, 

franksbanner1.jpg

 Quote from Evelyn Underhill    “Here we are, little half-animal, half-spiritual creatures, mysteriously urged from within, and enticed from without to communion with spiritual Reality (God). If and when we surrender to this craving and this attraction, we enter thereby - though at first dimly - on a completely new life full of variety, of new joy, tension and pain, offering an infinite opportunity of development to us. Such is the life of prayer as understood by the mystics, and as practiced with greater or less completeness of surrender and reward by all real lovers of Christ.”
