Even while outwardly brought into the Christian Tradition, saved from a life of reckless hedonism, there has always been a hidden undercurrent of 'energy' drawing me into the inward and esoteric aspects of all Faiths. This was not always understod by me, especially in my more exclusivist days. However, Wisdom had other plans for me, as She caused me to finally understand what drew me to other religions and their mystical occult paths. No- it wasn't to fight them, nor to prove them wrong or myself right, NO. Rather, it was to learn that "Deep calleth unto deep..." - Psalms 42:7a.
It is therefore unto the deeper things, in you and in me- that Wisdom seeks for- the "lost coin", the "pearl of great price"- it is to that unto which I am called.
