The present meaning of the term mysticism arose via Platonism and Neoplatonism—which referred to the Eleusinian initiation as a metaphor for the "initiation" to spiritual truths and experiences—and is the pursuit of communion with, identity with, or conscious awareness of an ultimate reality, divinity, spiritual truth, or God through direct experience, intuition, instinct or insight. Mysticism may be dualistic, maintaining a distinction between the self and the divine, or may be nondualistic.

One of the most beautiful flowers in our world...and one that is an awful lot of trouble to grow...bugs, beatles, rusts (I didn't know plants get rusty) and prickles when you try to help them. Just to name a few! There are a million more problems. If you don't want to deal with Divas...don't grow roses! Carol
Ladies tonight we are going to do a color theme. We will do anything roses, but they must be in shades of pink or peach. Not limited to outdoors but anything roses as shown in example pins. Enjoy the hunt and thanks everyone ......
Yellow roses are the most difficult to grow in colder climates. Here in Connecticut they are often victims of winter-kill. Perhaps they are telling us, "I am stunningly beautiful, therefore extremely difficult to cultivate. Be forewarned."
