Search for the Meaning of Life: Essays and Reflections on the Mystical Experience

Search for the Meaning of Life: Essays and Reflections on the Mystical Experience Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throughout twelve chapters derived from talks and lectures, Jager uncovers an understanding of the mystical meaning of life, the role of science and mysticism, the nature of transpersonal experience, the search for the Whole, the development of mystical experience in Eastern and Western religions, contemplative prayer as a Christian path, psychological and moral aspects of the inner path, and death as transformation. Citing such diverse writers and thinkers as John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart, Ken Wilbur, John Cassian, Kabir, Gary Zukav, Daito Kokushi, and Zenkei Shibayama, Search for the meaning of Life is an accessible explanation of the mystical journey from reason and knowledge to a direct experience of cosmic awareness and the ultimate reality.

Synopsis:

This collection of gem-like reflections distills the most popular messages theauthor has delivered, along with responses from his hearers. He describes the basic routes by which people travel on their mystical quests, including controlled breathing, quiet sitting and reciting mantras--methods that lead to states of "non-thinking" that may produce lucid, even life-transforming insights.
