Mysticism or Magic

21st Century Spiritual Renaissance in  Research

by Nataša Pantović Nuit

Mysticism or Magic 21st century spiritual Renaissance when east meets west

In sociology, we acknowledge the difference between the Eastern and Western worlds. Cultural rather than geographical divide, we mentally associate Asia with the East, and Australia, Europe, and America with the West. Some scholars would define Russia as East, and Islamic nations regard predominantly Christian nations as the West. Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Islam are some common religions of the Eastern worlds. Today our scientists, philosophers, mystics and artists learn from each other, applying science to comprehend the ancient wisdom, Micro and Macro manifestations.

“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow...”

Stream of Life, a Bengali poem by Rabindranath Tagore

Albert Einstein says

“I cannot prove scientifically that Truth must be conceived as a Truth that is valid independent of humanity; but I believe it firmly. I believe, for instance, that the Pythagorean theorem in geometry states something that is approximately true, independent of the existence of man.”

Applying any  system from a different country to own environment is a difficult task that requires proper assessment of both own and the circumstances surrounding the system. Respecting the accumulated knowledge within one’s country, a spiritual researcher or a practitioner attempts to apply various methods and techniques without getting entangled with superstitions, various Ego-s inner dynamics, and Universal knowhow circles looping around our s creating a mirage of progress.

Rebirth of an Orphan Girl: The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons by Monica Cantieni
The Encyclopaedia of Good Reasons - Monica Cantieni,Donal McLaughlin
Grünschnabel - Monica Cantieni

Here's the sublime debut novel of a - so far - rather unknown Swiss author. As a matter of fact, the book won the most renowned Swiss literary award. The story is simple and yet gripping:

 

Being only six years old and an orphan girl she is a greenhorn in life and in a family, when she arrives at the home of her new parents sometime in the 1970s. They are Swiss, but not particularly well-off so they live in a poor immigrant neighbourhood on the outskirts of Zurich with all its problems. The little girl needs to learn an awful lot and not just new words that she stores in all kinds of boxes (following the suggestion of her new father). With the help of her new - senile - grand-father Tat she finds her way.

The Secret Life of a Paris Concierge: The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
The Elegance of the Hedgehog - Muriel Barbery
L'élégance du hérisson - Muriel Barbery

This charming French novel first published in 2006 happens to be one of my favourites of all time. It's imbued with philosophy from beginning to end and everything revolves around the meaning of life from the point of view of a well-read French concierge who hides behind the façade of a typical speciman of her profession and a twelve-year-old bourgeois who feels disgusted by the empty life to which she seems doomed by birth. It's only thanks to the influence of a Japanese business man who moves into the house that the concierge gradually learns to live her true self and makes friends. A happy end announces itself page by page, but it isn't to be.
