THE ECSTATIC JOURNEY:
WALKING THE MYSTICAL PATH IN EVERYDAY LIFE
(1997)

AUTHOR'S INSIGHTS
HISTORICALLY, MYSTICAL EXPERIENCES ARE SAID TO HAVE HAPPENED ONLY TO A SELECT FEW SAINTS. BUT NO, IT HAPPENS TO US ALL. AFTER A TIME I SET OUT TO WRITE THE BOOK THAT I WISHED I HAD HAD WHEN MY FIRST TERRIFYING MAJESTIC MAGNIFICENT EXPERIENCE THUNDERED OVER ME, WITH VISIONS OF ANOTHER DIMENSION, LOVE SURROUNDING US: THE KINGDOM OF GOD. IN THIS BOOK YOU FIND ACCOUNTS OF MYSTICAL ENCOUNTERS, AS RECORDED BY EVERYDAY PEOPLE AS WELL AS BY SAINTS, SEERS, AND HOLY MEN AND WOMEN OF EVERY FAITH. THE EXPERIENCES MAY BE DIFFERENT, BUT THE JOURNEY TO GOD IS ALWAYS THE SAME: UNHAPPINESS, LONGING, INTROSPECTION, SPIRITUAL AWAKENING – AND THEN THE DOORWAY OPENING, SOMETIMES SOFT AS GOSSAMER AND SO FRAGILE THAT YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING HAPPENED UNTIL YOU LOOK BACK AND SEE HOW DIFFERENT YOU ARE FROM FIVE YEARS EARLIER; BUT SOMETIMES IT COMES CRASHING OVER YOU IN A SINGLE TRANSFORMATIVE MOMENT OF CLARITY AND GRACE. AND THEN? WHAT HAPPENS AFTERWARDS? WHENYOU DON'T SEE THE WORLD THE SAME WAY ANYMORE? THIS IS NOT AN EASY PATH.WE NEED A GUIDE. I WROTE THIS BOOK TO HELP ACT AS A GUIDE.

I WON'T BOTHER YOU WITH PRAISE AND COMPLIMENTS. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY. IF YOU NEED THIS BOOK, IT WILL FIND YOU.
