I cannot tell you how many people I have met who have described their path of recovery (mental health or substance use) as “mystic”.

Things seem to happen, opportunities fall on your lap, coincidences that are too big to be accidents.

Are we just more aware as our minds become clearer and healthier? Are we looking for validation for our efforts?

Either way I cannot deny the overwhelming evidence of mysticism in recovery that I have witnessed for over twenty years.
