Whatever mystical experience or glimpse of the God is mere hallucination.

The ego gains more strength when one tries to know one’s own self as a person.  But one cannot undo oneself until and unless he realizes the true fact that ‘I’ is not the Self but the ‘I’ is the mind. The mind is the whole Waking experience.  The ego is part of the Waking experience. Therefore trying only getting rid of the ego without inquiring and reasoning into the nature of the  mind   it is impossible to unfold the mystery of one’s own existence. Therefore one has to discover and realize the fact that,  the whole Waking experience is a mere illusion in order to know the reality of one’s true  existence.  Deeper self-search reveals the fact that, the self is neither the waking entity nor the self is dream entity but the self is the formless soul. the soul is present in the form of consciousness.

Consciousness is the substance and witness of the duality.  The duality is present in the form of mind. Mind is present in the form of universe. The universe appears as waking or dream and diapers as deep sleep. The one which is aware of the coming and going of the three states is neither the waking entity nor the dream entity but the formless soul, which is present in the form of consciousness.  When the soul becomes aware of its formless non-dual true nature in the midst of duality it is called self –awareness. It is foolish to limit the consciousness only to duality because the consciousness pervades all the three states
It is erroneous to seek truth seek truth as a person which is the ego. Seek truth as the invisible knower of the ego that will lead the seeker towards reality. The invisible knower is ultimate state of the mind which is called Atman or spirit; there is no higher power other then Atman.

Jesus said:- "Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. (THE GOSPEL OF THOMAS- Saying 5) 

It means one has to know the world which confronts him confronts to realize his body and world are made of the same essence and that essence is Spirit (father). 

Sri, Sankara says: one must first know what is before him. If he cannot know that, what else can he know or understand? If he gives up the external world in his inquiry, he cannot get the whole truth.

[63. Without causing the objective universe to vanish and without knowing the truth of the Self, how is one to achieve Liberation by the mere utterance of the word Brahman? — It would result merely in an effort of speech.(Viveka Chudamani )

Jesus said:- Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over all." (Gospel of Thomas 2)

"The Kingdom of God is inside you and all around you, Not in a mansion of wood and stone.  Split a piece of wood and God is there, Lift a stone and you will find God." (Gospel of Thomas)

 No mystical experience will help. The seeker should not remain in hallucination of getting some mystical experience. Seeker has to inquire and reason and analyze, reflect constantly on the knower of the appearance and disappearance of the three states in order to unfold the mystery of his own existence.
It is imposable to unfold the mystery on the physical based inquiry. When one becomes Aware of the fact that,  physical entity  is not the Self,  than it become very clear of the fact that , ‘I’ is not the Self. Therefore, searching or inquiring on the base of ‘I’ is totally erroneous.  
Whatever mystical experience or glimpse of the God is mere hallucination. Since experience is possible only when there is ego. The ego disappears along with the Waking experience. Thus one has to remain as a person to experience mystical experience or indulge in breathing exercise therefore ego still dominates.  The over- self and the one experiences the mystical experience are still remain separate thus still there is duality. Duality means Waking experience. Waking experience means illusion.  The truth will be reveled when the invisible witness of illusory Waking experience is mentally  traced. 

Meher Baba said: - give no importance to creed, dogma, caste or the performance of religious ceremonies and rites.
The only Real Existence is that of the One and only God Who is the Self in every (finite) self.

The only Real Love is the Love for this Infinity (God), which arouses an intense longing to see, know and become one with its Truth (God).

The only Real Sacrifice is that in which, in pursuance of this Love, all things—body, mind, position, welfare and even life itself—are sacrificed.

The only Real Renunciation is that which abandons, even in the midst of worldly duties, all selfish thoughts and desires.

The only Real Knowledge is the Knowledge that God is the inner dweller in good people and in so-called bad, in saint and in so-called sinner. This Knowledge requires you to help all equally as circumstances demand without expectation of reward, and when compelled to take part in a dispute, to act without the slightest trace of enmity or hatred; to try to make.

The real love is the love for the innermost self. Thus ‘Love Thyself'. 

The self cannot be experienced, because the experience is possible only in the realm of duality.   There is neither experience nor experincer in reality.  In self-awareness the body, ego and the world are not considered different from consciousness.
