The Interior Castle is one of the only books I know of which charts the course of the spiritual maturity. In that light, the book can be very hard to read as those steps which one has yet to take are hard to relate to in Teresa's book. For those who take the time to "chew" on this work, it is very rewarding.

The interior "mansions" by which Teresa moves the writer through are very similar to the concept of Hindu Chakras. Each one flows to the next as the soul is "compelled" to move deeper. I recommended revisiting this book every year, reading the last "mansion" that clicked for you, and look ahead to one you have yet to grasp.
