Mystic tradition has kept the spiritual fire going in all religions. i read a little on christian mystics but have no authentic knowledge of the same. Besides i have a feeling that it does not find favour with the church. Have known of strong Sufi tradition of mysticism despite the opposition by the mullah ( clergy).

Mystics for me are those who have a direct assess to truth and there realisations are beyond the religions or what our minds can conceive. Could somebody let me know about Christian mysticism? Also there is this theory of the Essence brotherhood predating Christianity and John the Baptist being from this tradition.
