    I don't think so...but that's a very long hard-road.

    The purpose of mysticism, is to eventually be able to rise to rise from the dead and become

    Immortal, which is a very difficult thing to do. Even Jesus Christ struggled casting out demons.

    People think being psychic means makes you a spiritual-person, and that's just not true.

    Believe it or not, there are people in this world who can fly and teleport; bi-locate

    and remain invincible; speak any human-language; walk on fire/on the ocean-floor etc.

    Miracles like that are nothing new. In Eastern-culture, they are called Siddhis

    Source(s): Jesus Christ studied in India/Tibet.

    Not in the least. But it takes years to understand and is dangerous. Years that are better spent learning how to make money. Few people are equipped for it & you can end up in a mental hospital.
