    I haven't read this yet, but am familiar with the kind of thought it derives from. In the 20th century a varied group of mystics, scholars and philosophers ... no, scratch out 'scholars' - they were mystical philosophers - gathered around either in correspondence, by reading each others' work, in personal meetings, and finally over the internet. The late Frithjof Schuon was perhaps at their center.

    But they were mystical thinkers from a wide variety of religions who saw that at the height or mystical peaks, they all believed in much the same thing. This is their journal - related to their movement loosely called "the perennial philosophy". If you click on each cover you see the fascinating list of contents.

    Truly inter-faith!

    Only read a couple so far. But the concept is where I think we are heading.

    Integration, all connected and supporting each other.
    Edit: to add; whilst not losing our individuality.

    This quote below from Journal 6 Editorial, shone out to me! I really like it. It means the same to me as one of my usual sayings/inner thoughts, ‘There is Beauty within everything’.
