Going Within


Mystics have a longing to go beyond the imperfect world of which they are part of. They feel an urge for something more permanent, and freeing. Many Westerners try to quell such feelings and desires by seeking relief or joy outside of themselves, but mystics turn inward. What occurs is impossible to describe.

They claim it is something that can only be experienced. But writings of the mystics indicate that above everything else, the inner way leads to an understanding that all is one, and one is all, that the self is one continuous process with God, the cosmos, or whatever term a particular culture or individual chooses to call ultimate and eternal reality.
