"Mysticism is the study of energy, the study of power. Power itself is simply a word to try to describe attention, awareness. Power is the ability to translate, that is, to shift from one level of attention to another." -- Rama
"In mysticism, the first course of action is to do away with imprinting -- our own conditioning and the conditioning of others. Then we need to be re-imprinted but in a different way; we need the imprinting of enlightenment, of freedom, and that comes through our association with a higher being. So classically what occurs is one meets a teacher. And that being will teach you how to overcome your old imprinting by changing your way of life and by teaching you the ways of power -- how to store it, collect it, amplify it, how to stop losing it. By bringing enough power into your life, you will gradually erase or actually overcome your imprinting." -- Rama
