The Sensitives

We should distinguish the theories and doctrines woven round the mystic's experience from the significant features of the experience itself. And those features are: the awareness of another and deeper life, a sacred presence within the heart, the certitude of having found the Real, the gladness and freshness which follow the sense of this discovery.
The real is more miraculous than the illusory psychic, more occult than the so-called occult world, more fascinating than the fantastic.
