Mystics are those who seek a direct experience of the Presence of God. Mysticism is not exclusive to Christianity. It is the vital, animating element at the heart of every religion. 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.
