Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : INFPs: where is your ideal place?

My ideal place would be somewhere where there’s a small city and nature close by. Not too remote but still able to get away when I need to. I am thinking this may be Seattle…

Oh, and include where you currently live if you’d like. I am curious as to knowing where all the INFPs reside across the globe 🙂
Interesting…I’ve lived here in New York City all my life and find it very distressing…especially the people. most are very, very rude and I find myself having a hard time keeping up with their fast paced lifestyle.

Answer by Suzy G
I’m an INFJ and I live in Mystic, CT. I bet Seattle would be best though.

I live in a small-ish town in England, with the nearest city 20 minutes away. There’s a national woodland nature reserve, only ten minutes’ walk from my house, and the beach isn’t far away either. I love being close to the beach, and having “quiet” places to go and just think, and I like being able to walk through some beautiful places, but I really want to live somewhere with a lot more going on.
I’ve been to York, and I adored it. It’s a city, so most things are easily accessed, but it’s quite small and it’s absolutely beautiful, and full of friendly people. The city centre is surrounded by a wall, there’s the beautiful Minster, and there are very few roads, and for a city, it’s so calm, and it gives it a kind of fairytale feel, which I love.

Answer by suchfun
Anne Katherine Emmerick and Mary of Agreda were both mystics. They were both lived the life of a religious (nun). Anne Katherine Emmerick “saw” everything from Genesis, to the life of Christ to the future ever since she was a child. A four volume set of books intitled, THE LIFE OF CHRIST is available from TAN Publishing company. Mary of Agreda also “saw” the life of Christ and the Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary….although the books that describe her visions are much harder to read. Mary of Agreda was a dear friend of King Philip IV of Spain. They shared much correspondence. These are just two examples.

Christ was an example of a mystic in his time, because nobody understood him….He spoke of spiritual matters above their understanding.

Mystics are christian people that were not accepted by the Catholic church because of different beliefs. Madame Jeanne Guyon was a great Christian mystic….

Answer by don’t panic
Mysticism is about approaching religion from the experiential side, of trying to know the divine through direct experience. Many ‘mystics’ throughout history (especially the Christian ones, I think) have received their experiences spontaneously, or through pray and fasting. Others use meditation, dance, ritual, etc.

There are mystical traditions in most religions.

Wikipedia has a long list of mystics. Some interesting ones in there.

Answer by Swami Abner
All such practices are simply means of purification, of setting the stage for the real task of remembering of who we really are.

Answer by gethsemenerose
Almost all major “religions” include a mystical sect. The Jews had the Kabbalah, With Muslims it is the Sufi branch of Dervishes, The Christian Mystics could include some of the Pentacostals (the Snake Handlers) or some of the older Monastic branches. The idea of Mystics generally include a thought that you can get to a “secret” that is beyond what is taught to the masses. It usually involves heavy meditative techniques wich is why most people associate Mystics with the New Age Movement.

Of course there is a Womens Basketball team called the Mystics also.

Answer by Sassy
Mysticism in general refers to a direct and immediate experience of the sacred, or the knowledge derived from such an experience. In Christianity this experience usually takes the form of a vision of, or sense of union with, God; however, there are also nontheistic forms of mysticism, as in Buddhism. Mysticism is usually accompanied by meditation, prayer, and ascetic discipline.

It may also be accompanied by unusual experiences of ecstasy, levitation, visions, and power to read human hearts, to heal, and to perform other unusual acts. Mysticism occurs in most, if not all, the religions of the world, although its importance within each varies greatly. The criteria and conditions for mystical experience vary depending on the tradition, but three attributes are found almost universally. First, the experience is immediate and overwhelming, divorced from the common experience of reality. Second, the experience or the knowledge imparted by it is felt to be self – authenticating, without need of further evidence or justification. Finally, it is held to be ineffable, its essence incapable of being expressed or understood outside the experience itself.

Many mystics have written of their experiences, and these writings are the best source for our knowledge of mysticism. Poetic language is frequently the vehicle of expression. Fire, an interior journey, the dark night of the soul, a knowing that is an un – knowing – such are the images or descriptions used for communicating the mystical experience. In the Christian tradition mysticism is understood as the result of God’s action in persons, an unmerited grace they receive from union with God. Other religions allow for the human achievement of the mystical states through certain methods of contemplation, fasting, and breathing. Only those whose lives are marked by penance and emotional purification achieve mystical states, however, and the experience itself is always of an Absolute that transcends the human efforts or methods of achieving it.

Modern philosophers and psychologists have studied the occurrence of mysticism. William James suggested that it may be an extension of the ordinary fields of human consciousness. The philosopher Henri Bergson considered intuition to be the highest state of human knowing and mysticism the perfection of intuition. Today scientists are interested in the ways in which certain drugs seem to induce quasi – mystical states. Recent studies have added to the understanding of mysticism without fully explaining it in psychological terms.

Among the many Christian mystics who have documented their experiences are Saint Francis of Assisi; Saint Teresa of Avila; Saint John of the Cross; Jacob Bohme; George Fox, founder of the Quakers; and Emanuel Swedenborg. For information on mysticism in Islam, see Sufism; in Judaism, Hasidism and Kabbalah; in the Eastern religions, Taoism, Upanishads, Vedanta, and Zen Buddhism.

Answer by nil.topazfish
mysticism is the practice of putting oneself into, and remaining in, direct relation with God, the Absolute, or any unifying principle of life. mysticism is inseparably linked with religion. because of the nature of mysticism, firsthand objective studies of it are virtually impossible, and students must confine themselves to the accounts of mystics, autobiographical and biographical, or, as the mystics themselves say, they must experience for themselves. the terms mystic and mysticism are used very broadly, being extended to mean magic, occultism, or the esoteric.
the primal difference between a mystic and a present day philosopher would be that a mystic works towards spiritual fulfillment where as a present day philosopher in some sense works towards academic recognition, i.e. their motivation for their chosen paths are different. a mystic just as every other thinker, wants to help make a difference in the world, but understands the limitations of language. A true mystic then tries to approach the situation by being mystical and hence truthful to himself in his actions.

When we use the word reality it is in itself an oxymoron, as in the above definition where realities (the plural) is used. 2 equivalent definitions of reality are (1) the totality of all things possessing actuality, existence, or essence, or (2) that which exists objectively and in fact. the two uses of the word are contradictory hence making the above definition of a mystic a one sided view.

this is better expressed in Okakura Kakuzo’s words. “the ancient sages (mystics) never put their teachings in systematic form. They spoke in paradoxes, for they were afraid of uttering half-truths. they began by talking like fools and ended by making their hearers wise.”

good examples of western mystics are William Blake and Ralph Waldo Emerson and good examples of eastern mystics are Swami Vivekananda and Lao Tze.

Answer by believer_in_jesus37421
Have you ever asked yourself why you find things like this so fascinating? The reason, I suspect, is because down inside you feel uncertain and nervous about the future and think these things might help you feel more confident.

But this is precisely why I urge you to put your trust in God alone for the future. As I have often said, predictions like these about the future are almost never on target (or else they are too vague to really mean anything). Why build your life around them or get your guidance from them? They are only a substitute for the guidance you really need—which is from God.

My other concern, however, is one that I hope you will take very seriously. These things may seem innocent and amusing at first—but it’s easy to get more and more fascinated with them, and eventually become involved in occult practices that are not from God.

Don’t be misled: Occult practices are not from God, but from spiritual forces opposed to God. Instead, put your faith and trust in Christ. When we know Him, we know we are safely in His hands no matter what the future holds. The Bible is right: “When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists … should not a people inquire of their God?” (Isaiah 8:19).

Middle east will erupt into war when the israeli forces invade iran and iran reponds with nuclear force and america responds with a full-scale invasion of iran due to ‘severe threat to the rest of the world’. Russia prepares for war, allies with china, prepares defences in siberia. North Korea invades South, first launching nukes. Chinese invasion of Korea. Asia erupts in war. Indonesia feels threatened by US bases in Australia, allies with China. Australia allies with US. Chinese invasion and subsequent occupation of Australia. US counter-attack on Chinese-Australia, riots in cities, rebellions. Australia put under strict martial law, rebellions squashed, rioters arrested. US, UK, Israel, some UN members vs Russia, China, Iran, Indonesia ect.

America destroyed. Britan destroyed. Australia crippled and under Chinese rule. Conquered nations all now occupied by China or Russia. World pretty much split by two nations. Conflict begins between Russia and China – massive nuclear devastation across the world. Billions dead. Humanity crippled. Instigation of New World Order.

JI YOUNG (KARA) – Mystic WHITE (MAKING & LIVE)

Written by Goddessmother

In a reading you may want to ask about:

A loved one who has passed (I am often visited by spirits and angels) “Can you tell me if my Auntie is with us?” Does my mother have a message for me?”
Love and romance. “Does my boyfriend really love me?” ” Will we marry?” “When will I meet my true Love?”
Family. “I have trouble getting along with my mother-in-law. Why doesn’t she like me?” My daughter is struggling right now.”
Career. “Will I change jobs soon?” “Will I get the promotion?”
Pets: “Where is my lost cat?” “Why does my dog look so sad?”
Past lives: “Did I know my boyfriend in a past life?”
Guides: “Tell me about my guides.”
Health. “How can I get more energy?” “Why am I so stressed out?”
Spiritual growth. “I think I am gifted. Do you see these gifts?” “Why am I at a stuck point?”

General advice comes as naturally to me as answers to specific questions.
