REALITY, and have brought back with them a picture of what they have seen and felt. Again, we know that this has not been an illusion or simply a subjective hallucination, for each age has had its mystics, and every age has produced the same results. ALL HAVE SEEN THE SAME THING. The testimony is complete and the evidence is certain.
WHAT THE MYSTICS HAVE TAUGHT ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL
All of the great mystics have taught practically the same thing.
