Here the practical man will naturally say: And pray how am I going to do this? How shall I detach myself from the artificial world to which I am accustomed? Where is the brake that shall stop the wheel of my image-making mind?

William Blake

Hi Linda,

I think you'd enjoy William Blake:
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is: Infinite. From The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. (See also The William Blake Archive).

Don't limit yourself to 5 senses. The Hindus maintain there are six, the extra sense being mind. Rudolf Steiner makes a good case for the brain being a sense organ in his Philosophy of Freedom.

I am glad you are enjoying the book, it is a brilliant point to start a study of mysticism.
Peter
