BROTHERHOOD OF THE MYSTICS

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE MYSTICS OF THE WORLD

There are no differences among the world of mystics, whether Christian, Hindu or Muslim. They all belong to the same brotherhood and have the same family likeness.

Here is what Miss Evelyn Underhill writes:
Though mystical theologies of East and West differ widely, though the ideal of life which they hold out to the soul differ too, yet in the experiences of the Saint, this conflict is seen to be transcended.  When the Love of God is reached, divergences become impossible, for the soul has passed beyond the sphere of the manifold and is immersed in the one reality.

  1. Patanjali Ramlall said,

    Yogi Ramacharaka states in his book MYSTIC CHRISTIANITY that the mystics of the east, Tibet, Persia, India, etc., upon meeting with Jesus, instantly recognised in him a Master of Mystics and he was accorded immediate access to their esoteric scrolls and brotherhood.

  2. Patanjali Ramlall said,

    Afterthought:

    Whence the Three Wise Men, and why the tribute to the new born babe in Bethlehem …, are Mystics connected?

  3. Thanks Pat for that response. You have surely clinched the nail driven in on the door of Mysticism. Jesus, the great mystic was revered by devotees of all the great religions. As regard the Three Wise Men, they were mystics from different countries and different persuasions, but they perceived the One who was to be the King among them.
