Read in June, 2009

I find mysticism difficult to assimilate. It will probably take reading it at least a couple more times to appreciate the author’s insights. In general it is much beyond and more complex than providing an understanding a personal period of darkness and depression which often seems to be the reference to it. I think one needs to be tuned into their own spiritual journey – John is really describing a process of the soul’s union with God – from the perspective of The Night of Sense, then The Night of the Spirit – an ultimate bond of love. Not a quick nor easy read. Will need to read several times.
