Treading the Mystic Path in Search of the Beloved
What is the “Mystic Path” and Who is “the Beloved”?
The answers to the above questions can be found in the following words revealed in the 19th century by Bahá ’u’lláh, the Prophet Founder of the Bahá’ı́ Faith:
"Every Prophet Whom the Almighty and Peerless Creator hath purposed to send to the peoples of the earth hath been entrusted with a Message, and charged to act in a manner that would best meet the requirements of the age in which He appeared...
The Prophets of God should be regarded as physicians whose task is to foster the well-being of the world and its peoples, that, through the spirit of oneness, they may heal the sickness of a divided humanity.... It is towards the inmost essence of these Prophets, therefore, that the eye of every man of discernment must be directed, inasmuch as their one and only purpose hath always been to guide the erring, and give peace to the aflicted ...."
~ Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 79–80.
The spiritual life of every individual person relates to human society as a whole; and thus, to the world conditions that challenge humanity. In the present age, mysticism can no longer be considered as the exclusive domain of a few select initiates. Therefore, the analysis of the “Mystic Path” presented in this book, is a new approach that discusses spirituality in relation to the main issues that the world is facing today.
This book speaks to every human being. Readers from all religious traditions—or none—will find something of interest in the contents.
