Genuine Mystical Experience

In working with others, the approach of genuine spirituality is to just do it, just help. If you’re doing it unskillfully, you’ll be pushed back. A direct message is always there, unless you are dreaming and don’t receive any messages. But if you are relating with things directly, even with ambition, that’s okay. There will be messages coming toward you automatically. It happens on the spot. This could be called genuine mystical experience.
