What is Discernment?

To discern:

transitive verb
  • 1 a : to detect with the eyes <discerned a figure approaching through the fog> b : to detect with senses other than vision <discerned a strange odor>
  • 3 : to come to know or recognize mentally <unable to discern his motives>

Whatever knowledge we have in mind to pursue, discernment is a skill we all need in order to find that knowledge. We can use it to decipher the truth from the falsehood, from the half-truths, and from the mostly-truth's we will most definitely encounter on our path. Whatever your goal is with regard to this pursuit of knowledge, our wish is that each of you gain this quality in abundance, because without it, there is not much of a point in the search at all.

The word “awakening” can be defined in as many ways as there are people that experience this process. However, there is one thing we all have in common... Curiosity. That is the curiosity of the world around us, about its current state of affairs, curiosity about the people around us, and about ourselves. “What is happening to me? Why am I here? Do I have a place to call familiar, or a purpose to fulfill?” Many of us have asked these questions on a constant basis, but very few of us have been able to find a satisfying answer before we are swayed by the next distraction, and are pulled away from this vital pursuit.

“Discerning the Mystery” is a site designed in honor of the questions to which many of us long for answers. Here you will find helpful resources which can assist in finding the core truths that can help inspire your awakening process. I do my best to keep the content diverse and dynamic, as well as to offer a wide variety of content for the average soul-searcher. Whatever your questions on life are, I hope that this site will help you find what you need.

My best wishes to you on your journey.


Thanks for reading.

I started DTM because I feel that informing the masses is the most positive and impactful thing I am able to do at this point. I work at my articles as though each one were my job, as I don't quite have the health to keep an actual job right now. Somehow, I get more energized when I know I'm having a positive impact in the lives of others. 

Right now, I rely upon donations and ads to keep my site going. Ideally, we would live in a world free of the need for money of any kind. We will have that world very soon, I believe, but in the mean time, I depend upon this task to sustain me as I do my best to be dependable to you, my readers. I hope “Discerning the Mystery” is a truly positive and progressive experience for you.

Thank you for your support.
