The Inner and Eternal Me

Evelyn Underhill often spoke of “the soul’s ground or apex, that deep core of our being where God dwells and speaks”. She referred to “The inner and eternal Me – spirit, the metaphysical self, that most hidden and intimate seat of our being, where already we live in a measure eternal life; the height or depth at which we taste God, the real seat of the religious instinct” [“God and Spirit”, 1930).

Buddhists explore such territory, and everyone (Evelyn claims) has some sense of their inner being. Do you?
