"Everything that exists, every atom, every particle, every energy, exists within the context of The Mystery .... The Mystery is, however, unimaginably greater than any human articulation of it, no matter how consistent or faithful. The Mystery cannot be contained within any created system. God is too big for religion and Christ cannot be contained within the Church."
Such is the important message of the book you hold within your hands.
In these pages, you will find much that is profound, thought provoking, even revolutionary in its approach to spiritual reality. Anthony Duncan propounds a world-view which recognizes the outward and visible world as the expression of an inward and spiritual reality. At the same time, he emphasizes the importance of the exterior world for living a life of wholeness and balance. "True mysticism," he writes, "requires both feet firmly planted upon mother Earth and a firm grasp of the outward and visible."
The Mystery is to be known, and loved, and lived. It cannot be reduced to a spiritual system or religious tradition, for it transcends all systems and traditions.
