Is mysticism the key to unity?

At a level deeper than all the cultural, doctrinal, and ceremonial differences between the religions of the world, exists the soul-level where mystical experience occurs. No matter what religion, what culture, what belief system a person may operate within, the pure mystical experience is one and the same. Therefore, if the human community could only honor our common mystical essence, we could overcome all the hostilities and misunderstandings that currently divide the world's religions.
