Here is a lucid, comprehensive presentation of the ways committed Christians can integrate Eastern wisdom and a solidly Christian outlook in a creative approach to self-realization. William Johnston draws upon the great mystics, modern spiritual writers, theologians, and teachers East and West to demonstrate how the various dimensions of Christian spriritual practice are paralleled and complemeted by techniques and insights from Oriental teaching and experience.
Rich in ideas and information, yet concretely practical, The Mirror Mind steadily opens readers to new levels and means of spiritual growth. Among the many topics Johnston examines: attaining self-realization by uncovering our inner world and our deepest self; developing the bodily dimension of prayer and worship; using formal prayer and reflective silence to enhance the mystical life; the real value of holy books; relating feeling to spiritual well-being; ways contemplation can heal the senses and transform the body; the divine and human dimensions of genuinely fulfilling love; and the ultimate common ground of compassion.
