So write Andrew Harvey and Anne Baring in The Mystic Vision: Daily Encounters with the Divine, a favorite devotional of mine. Christianity is my path to freeing my soul, but it is not the only path. Whatever faith tradition or practice we embrace on our journey to taste immortality and hear laughter, inevitably takes on the mystical, and draws us, both consciously and unconsciously into prayer. As Paul writes:
Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness, for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with signs too deep for words (Romans 8:26).
