Title: The Mystical Life: An Outline of its Nature and Teachings from the Evidence of Direct Experience
Author: J. H. M. [Joseph Hilary Michael] Whiteman
Description: First Edition. Blue cloth boards with gilt lettering on spine. Boards lightly rubbed; faint call number visible on spine (no other library indicators). Pages clean. Index, xx, 250 pp. 8.5 x 5.5 inches.
Based on Michael Whiteman's more than thirty years of first-hand knowledge of the various kinds of mystical experiences, such as "opening," "separation from the body," and "habitual spiritual consciousness." He gives a systematic account of the nature of such experience, drawing corroboration and clarification from a very wide field, including Christian and non-Christian religions, religious lore of the ancient East and Middle East, Plato and neo-Platonism, psychical research, philosophy, and modern science.
A large portion of the book is devoted to entirely new evidence concerning the "transforming union" and the "spiritual body." The book concludes with a summary of mystical cosmology, as known by the types of experience discussed.
Joseph Hilary Michael Whiteman (1906-2007) was a British-born mathematician and mystic who lived and worked most of his years in South Africa.
