Elwin, Verrier – The mystical experience is the strongest argument for something beyond ourselves
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Tribal World – Verrier Elwin
The Elusive Treasure
I have found through contemplation, experiences of such power as to suggest that our short, human life on this planet is not the final word.
In the ecstasy of human love, in the appreciation of beauty, in the recognition of goodness, we have brief glimpses of a greater love and a greater reality than anything we can know in ordinary lives.
The mystical experience, to my mind, is the strongest argument for something beyond ourselves.
