Ecstatic Mysticism, a quote from Martin Buber

By Glenda | August 6, 2023

“I am not concerned with finding a conceptual ‘pigeonhole’ for ecstasy. It is the unclassifiable aspect of ecstasy that interest me…The ecstatic individual may be explained in terms of psychology, physiology, pathology; what is important to us is that which remains beyond explanation: the individual’s experience. We pay no heed here to those notions which are bent on establishing ‘order’ even in the darkest corners; we are listening to a human being speak of the soul and of the soul’s ineffable mystery.” Martin Buber, a Jewish Philosopher, from Ecstatic Confessions, the Heart of Mysticism.
