"The mystics tell us that life is Divine, that we, in this dimension, are in the eternal embrace of the Divine. They show us that our sole purpose in life is to open our heart to this Divine Presence," writes contemporary mystic Andrew Harvey. This wonderful anthology is a step-by-step guide to that process. It provides a quotation for every day of the year from ancient and modern spiritual masters. Each month Harvey adds a short essay on an aspect of the journey of transformation — adoration, contemplation, prayer; the Divine Mother; the glory of creation; the soul's life; the sacred marriage; and more.

Harvey and his collaboration Anne Baring have gathered together "the magical quickening words" they hope will "guide and help us on our own journey of transformation." Among the mystics quoted are Rumi, Mirabai, Hildegard of Bingen, Matthew Fox, Bede Griffiths, and many more. As Mechtild of Magdeburg has written, "The day of my spiritual awakening was the day I saw — and knew I saw — all things in God and God in all things."
