    1. Mysticism of love and union. The idea that we are always trying to get back to God due to the desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Longing to escape loneliness as we feel 'separate'. Wanting to be accepted by God. 2. Mysticism of knowledge and understanding. Desire to find out the 'secret' of the universe, e.g. the meaning. Mysticism may be considered as the essence of all knowledge. It may be likened to the perfume of a flower, for it has a fragrance of its own.
