I have neglected this blog. Let's try again. Just began reading Mysticism, by Evelyn Underhill, a reward for having turned in my Spiritual Formation Immersion Experience spiritual autobiography. Ten pages of soul-searching, and now I plunge into Ms. Underhill's classic work that revived interest in and helped define that somewhat scary word "mysticism."
My first note on it comes from the introduction to the 12th edition: "the distinctness of the Spiritual Order." The truth expressed in spirituality is distinct and cannot be assessed by scientific methods.
