Belief in mysticism is the underlying premise for the operation of many religions. Can mysticism exist apart from a religious tradition?
“I believe in mysticism, with an interior goal, and you are your own temple and your own priest. I don’t believe anymore in religions, because you see today there are religious wars, prejudice, false morals, and the woman is despised. Religion is too old now; it’s from another century, it’s not for today.” ― Alejandro Jodorowsky
