No promises, no demands

December 6, 2011

The true mystic claims no promises and makes no demands. He goes because he must, as Galahad went towards the Grail: knowing that for those who can live it, this alone is life. He never rests in that search for God which he holds to be the fulfillment of his highest duty; yet he seeks without any certainty of success.

– Evelyn Underhill, in Mysticism
