The definition of mysticism is: a vague speculation: a belief without sound basis.

I’m not sure about you, but by all indications of how I’ve lived my life and made choices in the past, I’ve used a mystic approach quite often. I’m not entirely sure that’s something I should be proud of or not.

Here’s why: Of course I have learned many things through direct experiences in the past that have given me the knowledge to be able to navigate my world more easily with less effort and the ability to avoid the pitfalls of the past mistakes. However, there are some tools I find myself using that are much less tangible. Like my instincts. Beliefs, following my gut and even speculation.

I’m not sure this is the best way to proceed, but there is some comfort in it for me.

What say you?
