Throughout the ages, in text and in practices, secretly and openly, spiritual and mystical people focused on the central concept of the force of light. A recurrent idea is that spirit is light and trapped in the world of material or flesh and needs to be released in some way. Many mystics have created a path of illumination to allow our inherent genius of light be liberated to return to its ultimate source. The mystery is about who and what we are and how we might see our spiritual evolution. At the same time scientism seems to attack spiritual activity.
In the matrix the spirit lies
Destined to fight towards the light
To struggle in the harsh, hard brightness
To seek the subtle true light
This book is divided in two parts. The first part is an exploration that seeks to examine the approach within spirituality and mysticism to light in the context of scientific examination of light. The latter consists of lines, poetry or sutras. Poetic expression sets out the author's vision of a whole path of light reflecting perennial wisdom. Addressing mind and heart, the reader will find something that will help them reflect on their own beliefs or open an entirely new vista.

What are we? Who are we? Are we just some kind of lucky animal that evolved and are now almost too clever for our own good? Does evolution explain everything? Religion? The Mystical Accord argues that the history of mysticism gives us a consistent pattern to help answer the biggest questions. Spiritual evolution is ignored with the growth of technocratic societies. Mysticism means a number of things as outlined in the book’s extensive Introduction/Gateway, which is followed by 12 chapters of Spiritual Lines or Sutras.
Mysticism deals with inexplicable, supernatural, metaphysical domains beyond limitations of reason. Mystics deal with spiritual growth and the meaning of life. Mysticism is a vision of an individual, spiritual, inner pilgrimage towards enlightenment and revelation. A quest seeking knowledge and the secret of life, often involves mystical words of power. Being individual does not mean the mystic is outside religious traditions, indeed they often cause and contribute towards it. Mysticism overlaps with psychology, metaphysics, magic and esoteric studies. History, ancient wisdom and practice demonstrate a recurrent process with lessons for modern life. When the idea of the spirit, free will and consciousness is under attack, we must reflect on what is at stake.
The Mystical Accord suggests that we acknowledge being spiritual beings. We are individual, conscious beings, beneficiaries of pre-existing consciousness. Science has failed to explain the nature and origin of consciousness. From those foundations we see a similar pathway indicated by most spiritual traditions. That involves looking at our self and working to discard what is false, negative and destructive to come to our true self in a process of transcending the ego. True self is closer to our spirit, soul, original consciousness and allows ‘nexus to the numinous’. Mystical perceptions reflect perennial philosophy and parallel the hero’s journey. It is necessary to comprehend spiritual growth when opposing forces of control seek to diminish the spirit. Science, technology and material prosperity produce undeniable benefits but need to be balanced. They are servants not masters. Hostile to our own spiritual dimension we may sink into a straitjacket of technological servitude. The quiet voice of conscience is often the gift of the mystic.
The Mystical Accord suggests the need for an accord or alignment between our head and our heart in the process of spiritual evolution. Mystical traditions suggest that the fruits of the spiritual path pursued in a disciplined way, lead to profound clarity and inner peace, joyous and persistent. We may avoid confronting great existential questions but they never go away. If we look at the pattern of similar mystical observations, we make sense of the outside intellectually and the inner spiritually. Looking at universal experiences of mystics, we discern positive messages and knowledge that helps us and give us mystical insights.
