^ D ^

A. "with .. with" is redundant and "it" refers to what??

B. "it" refers to what??

E. "mystical level" makes it wordy. And "due to" is not preferable

"direct contact" is more conceise and a better usage than "contact .. directly"

Agree with D

'direct contact' sounds better than 'contact...directly'

Between C and D, the positioning of directly needs to immediately precede through in order to preserve the original meaning of the sentence.

(D) Stands.
