THE CLOUD OF UNKNOWING

Product Description
The Cloud of Unknowing and The Book of Privy Counseling are the first explorations in the English language of the soul's quest for God. Written by an anonymous fourteenth-century mystic, The Cloud of Unknowing expresses with beauty a message that has inspired such great religious thinkers as St. John o fthe Cross and Teilhard de Chardin, as well as countless others in search of God. Offering a practical guide to the life of contemplation, the author explains that ordinary thoughts and earthly concepts must be buried beneath a "cloud of forgetting," while our love must rise toward a God hidden in the "cloud of knowing." The Book of Privy Counseling, also included in this volume, is a short and moving text about achieving enlightenment through both loss of self and consciousness of the divine. In the foreword, Huston Smith draws on his extensive knowledge of the varieties of religious experiences to illuminate the relevance of these works for contemorary readers.
