So, your deism is more than intellectual?
Life is more than intellectual ... unless you are a Vulcan. The ancient Greeks debated whether or not a life without emotion is the good life. There are few new ideas, just recycling and repackaging. Being in touch with your emotions is hard, particularly for men, because it is not approved, and it is painful. In ancient psychology there are several levels of human experience ... body, emotion, intellect and spirit. intellect is only one level, and each level isn't more important than the others, they are a harmony. But most of us are bohemians, who are in disharmony with ourselves and each other ;-)
Technically, I am a humanist panentheist ... not a classical theist, hence your detection that I am different from Randy etc. Classical theists aren't mystics. A pantheist doesn't accept anything transcendent, just what is immanent. And a panentheist admits to at least the possibility of the transcendent. I am agnostic about the transcendent. About the immanent, I could no more deny it than deny myself. We can both see the same real thing, but my perception isn't the same because my personal culture isn't the same.
I have experience direct and anecdotally with the paranormal, but that isn't important to me ... I think it can be a hindrance to spiritual practice ... as Patanjali, the writer of the Yoga Sutra mentions (they are called siddhis by both Hindus and Buddhists).
So what does immanent mean? What is it like to be mystic (as an experience, not as a concept to be discussed)?
