"Faith makes all things possible." "For the magic to work, you have to believe in it." "If you Believe, it will Happen." "Those who have faith need no explanation."
The essence of Mysticism is that one can alter reality by the power of the mind. If you can believe something, without a doubt, then that is reality. There is no "absolute" reality, no one way that the universe is, there is only our belief of what the universe really is. Ergo, to become god like, one only needs to be able to believe, undeniably, what one wants and it is.
Maybe this is why FAITH is the intractable foundation of Christianity, for to falter, to doubt is to guarantee that you will not get what you so desperately want to believe.
