Mysticism — Bridge to Nowhere

$15.00

the mystical origins of Theosophy are universal

About the Course 

In this course written in 2009 for the Theosophical Society in America, Pedro Oliveira explores the mystical origins of Theosophy, and the works of profound mystics including Meister Eckhart, Jalaluddin Rumi, Martin Buber, J. Krishnamurti and Ramana Maharshi.

“The ordinary mind plans and moves from one destination to another, from one subject to another, in a linear sequential time frame. It is convinced it knows what it sees because it is accustomed to relate to reality, through intellectually conceived concepts and categories. The mystical experience teaches us that every relationship in life is like a bridge, a bridge to nowhere, which is now here”.
