(Br. Ron)For me, there are as many definitions of 'Christian Mystic'
as there are practitioners.
But one view might be, one who contemplates the meaning of
Christos and how the Sacrifice at Golgotha give an unprecedented
tool for human Eternal Progression.
For a Christian, the goal of Life is not 'Oneness' but the
perfection of Individuality, Relationships and Goodness in this 3D linear Time/space.(as unattainable as that quest
appears to be)
It's true that we all will end up at home in the 'All'
but according to the Initiates, not all will attain unto Eternal
Progression of a unique individuality (soul)
Such is reserved for the Sons of God (regardless of earthly gender)
who have developed their own hearts and consistently express
the 'Will to Good.'

The difference between Christic Mysticism and most Eastern
paths (as in the case of Buddhism for instance) is that the latter
generally seeks to rise above Samsara (the sufferings of the world)
and take rest into the bosom of Eternity....(the Void...Ain Soph)
The Judeo/Christian ideally seeks to align their molecules to
the Spirit of Our Lord and FULFILL the hungers of Time by
sacrificially uplifting Creation VIA Sacrificial Love.
For me, the path of the Christian Mystic is one of prayerful
contemplation on how to 'make peace with pain' and share
this victory with others in the Spirit of Our Lord.
This goal is impossible for most of us...hence the Gift of One
Who Overcame the World to provide an interdimensional
vehicle to help us attain Eternal Progression. (Merkabah/Shekinah)
...progressing us from animal to human, from human to super-human,
from super-human to the Angelic, and from the Angelic to The Realm
Finding and mastering this Grail vessel takes great Power and
Humility (Majesty)..."and few be there that find it" in this
incarnation it seems to me.
