Mysticism..I never really thought of that word until today..
From Merriam Webster on line
Definition of MYSTICISM
: the experience of mystical union or direct communion with ultimate reality reported by mystics
: the belief that direct knowledge of God, spiritual truth, or ultimate reality can be attained through subjective experience (as intuition or insight)
a : vague speculation : a belief without sound basis
b : a theory postulating the possibility of direct and intuitive acquisition of ineffable knowledge or power
The answer is yes..US is a place..the experience can be had anywhere, in my opinion....
