    Thank you, Bryce. This is the best treatment I have seen on this subject, and it is also beautifully concise. I will sharing this with my friends. 😉

  2. Great post. Hamblin’s comments fit well with the opening chapters of Temples and Cosmos. One of my favorite illustrations in the book is of the SLC temple as a compass.

  3. Hey Bryce!

    Thanks for the very kind words.

    By the way, I just did another post on knots and covenants. I could not have done it without several links to your site where you handled the topic so well.

    AND, I have to know, was that really Pres. Monson?


  4. Another case of synchronicity for you and I.
    I just posted a comment on David’s site responding to a guy who was uneasy about being a Mormon and a Mystic. I used my Apple’s dictionary to define “mystic” to him…coming to much the same conclusion as you.

  5. Very educational, Bryce!
    Since I have been studying at Marquette, I have become quite familiar with the positive nature of mysticism, as this subject is the specialty of a few of the professors here. My academic advisor, Dr. Andrei Orlov, helps run an ongoing seminar called The Jewish Roots of Eastern Christian Mysticism. You can check out the website for the seminar at http://www.marquette.edu/maqom. The site is an absolute gold mine of wonderful information under the general theme of mysticism. It even has some good papers given detailed definitions for Jewish and Christian mysticism.

  6. Thank you all for your very insightful comments. I love to hear of your own viewpoints and knowledge in relation to the subject. It adds a lot to the item at hand.

    And no, it was not Pres. Monson, although that would have been cool. 🙂
