In every age and in every land there have been individuals, who have broken through the shell of everyday concerns and inherited beliefs into a dimension of consciousness, which gives direct insight into fundamental truth. This mystical experience has come to millions, and all mankind is destined to know it as a natural outgrowth of evolution. It is the 'silent encounter' with the Self, usually unexpected and often unsought, yet revealing the essence of Reality.

In this book, such writers as Haridas Chaudhuri, Manly P. Hall, Geoffrey Hodson, Phoebe B. Bendit, Arthur W. Osborn and others explore this subject from varying backgrounds and approaches. The reader, who has known the mystical experience will meet his own realizations in ways, which deepen his understanding. Those, who have yet to break through into this realm of consciousness will catch glimpses of an inevitable experience and perhaps be led closer to it.

From Chapter 19 - 'The Mystical Element in Creativity' (p. 186):

" Thus our recognition of the horizon principle in all experience as a meeting in ourselves of sky and earth, of spirit and matter, provides an accurate focus for seeing all pairs of opposites as two aspects of the same thing and thereby reversing our position relative to them from that of conflict to one of transcendence. It is in this sense that Francis Bacon wrote in his 'Essay on Truth': 'Surely it is heaven upon earth for a man's mind to move in charity, rest in Providence [i.e., the Law] and turn upon the poles of truth. "
