Symbols of the world's religions



William Donkin

Those aspirants who get launched on the mast line, find themselves propelled by an irresistible impulsion in the form of a yearning to realize God as the Divine Beloved. The psychic journey of masts is a mysterious flight from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge, from a sense of isolation and frustration to the experience of fulfilment, through a complete merging in the Divine Beloved.

Even in the initial stages, those who are on the path of masts get intoxicated by glimpses of God as the Beloved. As the mast advances on the inner planes he gets more and more God-intoxicated, and his yearning to be united with the Divine Beloved becomes so acute and irresistible that it gradually takes him beyond the domain of the mind.
