Mystical Window

Anyone can find the luster, the perennial ecstasy of so many rites. We may access luminosity with mindful meditation, reflection, or prayer. Call it God, Allah, or immutable purity, Call it Christ, Yahweh, or satori, Call it nirvana, moksha, or inward light. Selfless actuality, perfect radiant quietude, rapturous awakening or salvation. In every creed a different lexicon, every culture has a unique vocabulary for our common humanity, our universal mystical window.

Hi Sally, It feels like a portal to be sure, and perhaps one can see or go through it. So door works at least as well as window. Thank you for your comments!

Hi Silent One, Thank you! You are certainly correct. Religious dogma has formed the pretext for too many wars throughout human history. My hope is that maybe we can help put an end to these conflicts by showing how similar the spiritual quest is for peoples of all the major religions. Shalom! Shalom!
