A profound and important book. Here's what I wrote in my blog about it:
I just finished reading Henry Corbin's 1969 book, Creative Imagination in the Sufism of Ibn 'Arabi. (This was the title of the earlier edition.) It had been sitting on my shelf for over two years. I'm glad it waited for me, because what I learned is something that I've always wanted to know--the imagination is REAL. It's not make-believe.

Henry Corbin breathes life and depth into his subject matter. There are more interesting revelations in this book than in any dozen mass market pop spirituality books.

This book is primarily about the Islamic Sufi, Ibn Arabi, and his writings about the sufi experience of a metaphysical reality as experienced in the practice of prayer, meditation and what Corbin refers to as Active Imagination.

The book describes the modes of being, from our physical world on up to the God that is indivisible and at the same time includes the other three modes of being. Through the Sufi practice, one en...more
