The fundamental core of Jesus’ teachings is centered on the mystical experience. Peeling back the theological layers that surround him, we begin to sense that he was not more advanced in capacity, but it appears he had a fuller awareness than most of our place in the cosmic context.

“With a restlessness which is pitiful to see, people are ever shifting from one thing to another, always hoping to find rest and satisfaction in some anticipated accomplishment or possession.
