What do you mean by "Mystical Dimension"

Mysticism is intimate, conscious interior contact with God as we know Him. It is the simultaneous discovery of our true nature and the true nature of the Divine One in relationship. The deep experience of God as our true reality is always transformative. And so it is through the discovery and enrichment of our mystical union with God that He draws us to Him and helps us die to the cherished and dreaded illusions that hinder our progress toward the healing, freedom and peace that only God can give. The mystical dimension of the 12 Steps is a path not only for addicts, but for all of us in our human struggles, to heal from habits of mind and heart, and to heal our restless longing for wholeness.
