If the present world go astray, the cause is in you, in you it is to be sought.
'Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, Be it ever so humble, there 's no place like home; A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there, Which sought through the world is ne'er met with elsewhere.
Payne, John Howard
I never have sought the world; the world was not to seek me.
We follow the mystics. They know where they are going. They, too, go astray, but when they go astray they do so in a way that is mystical, dark, and mysterious.
The world's a forest, in which all lose their way; though by a different path each goes astray.
The mystic too full of God to speak intelligibly to the world.
The mystical is not how the world is, but that it is.
It is not how things are in the world that is mystical, but that it exists. (6.44)
Mysticism has been in the past and probably ever will be one of the great powers of the world and it is bad scholarship to pretend the contrary. You may argue against it but you should no more treat it with disrespect than a perfectly cultivated writer would treat (say) the Catholic Church or the Church of Luther no matter how much he disliked them.
William Butler Yeats
Cause me no causes.
