Overview

The teaching that you only whisper…

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. There have always been mystics. And they have always plumbed the depths and scaled the heights of the soul’s potential. Mysticism is not exclusive to Christianity. It is the vital, animating element at the heart of every religion.

The aspiration of every mystic is one and the same: union with God. He does not postpone it—because he cannot.

The spiritual marriage, the mystics 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.
