Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

You may find the addition of the concept referring to going home to be a little odd, but in many who seek the spiritual path the 'dive' to confront their demons is a necessary part of the journey.

I also think, that the book was based on actual spiritual experiences in his depressed state, he combined what he saw with what he interpreted it to be.

 

A description of the experience

 

Dante – The Divine Comedy INFERNO I

CANTO VI

And he replied 'You know that the place is round;
And although you have come a long way
Always to the left, descending to the bottom

You have not yet done the complete circle;
So that if anything that is new appears
It ought not to make you look astonished

The source of the experience

Dante Alighieri
