9780340150603: Watcher on the Hills

In Watcher On The Hills, physicist Raynor C. Johnson examines 36 cases of mystical and spiritually transformative encounters experienced by ordinary people. The higher self, the soul and personality, higher mystical experience and cosmic consciousness are all examined. The author tells us: "I have written this book because the testimony of those who have had moments or mystical experience seem to me a clear pointer to the truth of the world. I find these testimonies impressive in their sincerity, in their unanimity, and in their influence on the lives of those to whom they came. It is satisfying to have the assurance that (in William James's words), 'the inmost nature of reality is congenial to powers which we possess.' But for everyone who has had such a glimpse there are 1000 who would desire it, but have had none. Immersed in the routine and monotony of everyday life, uninspiring and uninspired, they feel remote from such experience." This book is for those people. "In most religions the ultimate verities are believed-and may therefore be doubted; in mysticism they are experienced, and doubt is no longer possible." ~ Swami Vivekananda
