“Mysticism, in its pure form, is the science of ultimate’s, the science of union with the Absolute, and nothing else, and the mystic is the person who attains to this union, not the person who talks about it. Not to know about, but to Be, is the mark of the real initiate.”

-Evelyn Underhill, Mysticism, The Development of Humankind’s Spiritual Consciousness (London: Bracken Books,1995, rep.),72.
