Behind the theology and symbols of Christianity lies a rich treasure of mystical teaching. When the inner meaning of the symbols is discovered and realized more fully there is a great sense of freedom, and the journey along the path, even though still challenging, is much easier and more enjoyable.
Those who have helped to carry on the Christian teaching down through the ages have not always understood the rich treasure they held in their grasp. As we travel along the path toward the inner kingdom our blind faith is transformed into an illumined faith. Many of the things that did not make sense begin to make a great deal of sense.
The purpose of this book is to help you make the transition in thought from a literal to a spiritual interpretation of the great Christian ideas. May your journey toward the inner kingdom be a joyous one.
