Mysticism, in the words of Edith Stein

I always thought "mysticism" was sort of like the Navy Seals:  only for a very elite, very few.  Here's what Edith Stein says about it, though:

...the mystic is simply a person who has an experiential knowledge of the teaching of the Church;  that God dwells in the soul.  Anyone who feels inspired by this dogma to search for God will end up taking the same route the mystic is led along:  he will retreat from the sources of the senses, the images of the memory and the natural functioning of the intellect and will withdraw into the barren solitude of the inner self....
