Human beings are born with the thirst in the soul to connect with their Source. The thirst is there so that man will remain restless in this world till he finds his rest in God. T.S. Eliot, an American-born British poet, also has this same kind of thirst for the divine. Eliot being raised in a prominent Unitarian household was surrounded by religious ideology. But he had struggled with religion and belief throughout his life. His search was for one true religion that can lead him to one true God, who can satisfy his longings and can fill the void and groove in his heart. In Eliot’s poetry one can find struggles of a suffering soul and his yearnings for the union with the divine. With this perspective in mind, in this paper man’s spiritual quest, his struggles and sufferings to find the one true God in Eliot’s Journey of the Magi is undertaken to be examine.
Keywords: Journey, magi, search, God, Eliot.
