What you will read, dear reader, is no fable, even though it may have the appearance of one. It describes real life, as you will perceive when you have gained insight into it." "Fare you well, my dear Christian, and may the leader of light, the Holy Spirit, reveal to you, better than I am able to do, the vanity of the world, as well as the true glory, consolation, and the joy of the elect and God-united hearts." John Amos Comenius. "Comenius's delightful allegory Labyrinth of the World may fitly take its place among the great dramatizations of the ever vital message of mysticism, or with such allegories as the English religious classic, Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress." "Comenius shows himself, in this work, a genuine mystic in the succession of Plotinus, Augustine, Meister Eckhart, Garard Groote, and Thomas a Kempis. The message of his work is a dramatized presentation of the eternal theme of all mysticism. The Kingdom of God is within you.
