Humans think that there is a difference between mysticism in variuos religions. Feuds arise, I am a Sufi and you are a Christian Mystic and you are a Zen Buddhist.
Accordingly, I posted this post in that group, and I thought to myself why not post it here.Jesus Christ is a sufi, using his own language -Aramic- according to his cultural background and era. The Prophet Mohamed is zen buddhist, using his own language -Arabic- also according to his cultural background and era. Following to the same line of thought we can say that Sakyamouni Buddha is a Christian and Al Junaid is Advatic and so on. All these great men can be called Sufis or Zen Buddhists or Christian Mystics at heart, because inwardly they see and experience the Oneness of God. Mysticism, whether Sufism, Christian Mysticism and so forth is a journey from Multiplicity to Oneness.
Humans who speak of thought systems and belifs, doctorines and teachings are speaking from their minds. Mysticism is the language of the heart, it is a universal language, Buddha can speak Sufism and Jesus Christ can speak Zen Buddhism.
