You Might Be a Mystic If...

In this episode we’re going to flesh out the idea of “the mystic”. It’s central to who we are and that we think cultivating an awareness of the “mysteries of life” is a definite way to do it [way] better! And, as always, our conversation will be roguish, as we weave in our core values and we’ll share a mystic MacNugget. Time for us to put on our cowls and journey into the grey…

 Hey Stu…

“Namaste, all of you beautifully, exotic cocktails…

Comment on Facebook, email us, we want to more of these stories!


When you know someone is industrious, studious, compassionate, loved by friends and neighbors, tolerant in religious views, and who can point out to you the magnificence and presence of God in the simplest of things…you have probably found a mystic. It just might be you!


  • Industrious & studious.
  • Experienced the divine.
  • Compassionate.
  • Loved by friends and neighbors. A connection maker.
  • Tolerant in religious views. Non-dualistic.
  • One who can point out to you (articulate) the magnificence and presence of God in the simplest of things. Panentheistic.
  • Sees the oneness of all things. Stands in awe of life.
  • Cultivates a balance between our light and dark natures.
  • Trusts their heart knowledge.


  • Embracing your mysticism frees you from the bondage of a life driven by your cognitive ability. “Or better” is really a possibility and not just an ism.
  • Teaches you to trust in a power greater than yourself.
  • It enhances everything.
  • Moves you beyond your old self. “What got you here is not going to get you there.”


  • Prayer, meditation, mindfulness.
  • Devotion to a higher power (God).
  • Study the mysteries.
  • Humanistic and faith based. Poets. Rumi, Gibran.
  • Serve others.

Mystic MacNugget:  “God cannot catch us unless we stay in the unconscious room of our hearts.” -Patrick Kavanagh (Irish poet and writer)

The WizeGuys
Going rogue in pursuit of wisdom.
A cosmic exhale—it’s what we all yearn for. Mac and Stu are a couple of WizeGuys with decades of experience in navigating the nuances of life as entrepreneurs, family men, coaches, mentors, facilitators, thought leaders, masters of relationship, and contemplative mystics. Join with them as they apply an eclectic approach to life, centered around the concept of cultivating wisdom. They will help you build discernment through the art of asking the “whys”, and by showing that going rogue is the only way to break free of the biases that keep us from doing it just a little bit better.

They realize that what got us here is not going to get us there. Take a journey with them where you’ll experience ah-ha moments stimulated by their conversation that’s filled with wit, candor, vulnerability, and always seasoned with right amount of the mysterious. We’re all exotic cocktails, and learning to celebrate our wonderful uniqueness as we build oneness is the perfect recipe for crafting a better world for everyone.

Mac is The Maverick and Stu is The Maestro. Blending those perspectives in an almost magical way to get after it and call it out will show you how together is better. They’ll use the events of the day to practically apply a roguish blend of modern perspective and timeless wisdom sagacity. Seeking clarity over certainty changes everything. You want some of that? Then relax, enjoy, and engage. Oh...and make sure that you strap in…
