The Cloud Upon the Sanctuary
This book is recognized as a classic of Christian mysticism and is highly recommended for those seeking a deeper spiritual sense of themselves and the Christian faith. Jesus is represented as the Wisdom of God, working in all things and always with us. Despite our fallen natures we are still able to reach into the wholeness and completeness that is offered. If we can find a way to work around our imperfections and reach deep within ourselves, there can be a true form of salvation. We must work in spiritual ways to access this hidden nature. That is what this book offers. Through meditative work and deeper awareness we are able to pierce the veil, or "cloud," and be able to experience our more divine natures. The author holds out hope that the principles within this book may one day allow people to live more spiritual lives, which in turn could bring more harmony and peace to the world. This book is a great tool that allows one to open up into the deeper, spiritual self.
