To discover the secret of all religion

 If once a person has begun to look at beauty, one sees a beauty reflected in every form, and the only thing which lacks beauty is the shadow. It is non-existent. When one sees beauty, one sees beauty; one does not look at the shadow. But there are others who will look at the shadow. And these who look at the shadow of this illusion, they see and they do not see. Their eyes are open and yet they are closed. But now there is a step further. A person goes and sees that: All this beauty which I see which is outside, and all this power and goodness and wisdom, the sign of which I see in everything and in all things, where is the source of it? Where can I find the one source in which all this unites and becomes one? And that naturally comes when that person with his opened heart, who has seen beauty outside and has closed his eyes and is one with his heart, sees all this reflected in his own heart. S/he can sit by the lake of his own heart and see therein the whole beauty reflected. And it is from this point that mysticism begins.
