Mysticism is the vital, animating element at the heart of every religion. The aspiration of every mystic is one and the same: union with God.
“The mystics are those who seek a direct experience of the Presence of God. They yearn to know God, to see God and to be one with God—now.
The aspiration of every mystic is one and the same: union with God. Spiritual marriage, they tell us, is not merely a conforming to the ways and will of God but a total transforming of the soul into God….
And this is the heart of the teaching that you only whisper: The soul that is transformed into God, is God.”
