Schizophrenia and Mysticism (Bibliographic Essay)

Schizophrenia and Mysticism is an essay which links schizophrenia with mysticism.

Mystic religions include Sufi, Jewish mysticism (Kabbalah and Hasidism), Zen, Gnosticism and similar faiths.

Most people display a sarcastic derision of mysticism.

The reason is that they cannot unravel the mystery into its basic components, due to ignorance and prejudice.

At the root of mysticism is truth. It isn't that complicated at all. It just needs an open mind.

It is possible for a person to have a mystic vision consisting of angels and celestial beings propitiating them like the Buddha.

Erowid is also a good website to get information on Gnosticism.
