My book, "In Love With Everything," describes how the apophatic mystical process produces a sense of nearly unshakable well-being, along with a spontaneous love for all beings and all of Being. This mystical book will give you a practical understanding of the practice of mysticism. Read the book here or order it from Amazon.
About Raymond Sigrist
From a mystical point of view, I think there is a lot to be said for ignoring personal history, and yet there is a little to be said in favor of giving a brief resume. I've worked as a day-laborer in Queens, New York; a brakeman on the Norfolk and Western railroad; a farmhand near Dundee, Ohio; a high school teacher in Tamale, Ghana; a forward artillery observer at Khe Sahn, Vietnam; a psychiatric nurse in Los Angeles; a plumber's assistant in the World Bank building; and a busboy in Athens, Ohio.
I've practiced mystical cultivation for a number of years, and although I am good at it, I have only scratched the surface. Despite being at this modest level, I have no problem appreciating what it is that causes me to love you and every other being. These are the ideas that my new book about mysticism addresses.
