| But inner experience is only one source of human knowledge.
| That is why, according to this newer psychology, Christianity has already fulfilled its biological mission, and it is impossible for the modern man to understand its original significance.
| It may, however, be said that the level of experience to which concepts are inapplicable cannot yield any knowledge of a universal character, for concepts alone are capable of being socialized.
| Sexual self-restraint is only a preliminary stage in the ego's evolution.
| The standpoint of the man who relies on religious experience for capturing Reality must always remain individual and incommunicable.
| A wrong concept misleads the understanding; a wrong deed degrades the whole man, and may eventually demolish the structure of the human ego.
| The ultimate aim of the ego is not to see something, but to be something.
| The truth is that the religious and the scientific processes, though involving different methods, are identical in their final aim. Both aim at reaching the most real.
| Divine life is in touch with the whole universe on the analogy of the soul's contact with the body.
| Yet higher religion, which is only a search for a larger life, is essentially experience and recognized the necessity of experience as its foundation long before science learnt to do so.
| The soul is neither inside nor outside the body; neither proximate to nor separate from it.
| But the perception of life as an organic unity is a slow achievement, and depends for its growth on a people's entry into the main current of world-events.
| The ultimate purpose of religious life is to make this evolution move in a direction far more important to the destiny of the ego than the moral health of the social fabric which forms his present environment.
| Inductive reason, which alone makes man master of his environment, is an achievement; and when once born it must be reinforced by inhibiting the growth of other modes of knowledge.
| Another way of judging the value of a prophet's religious experience, therefore, would be to examine the type of manhood that he has created, and the cultural world that has sprung out of the spirit of his message.
| Conduct, which involves a decision of the ultimate fate of the agent cannot be based on illusions.
| The thought of a limit to perceptual space and time staggers the mind.
| Thus passing through the infinite varieties of space we reach the Divine space which is absolutely free from all dimensions and constitutes the meeting point of all infinities.
| Man is primarily governed by passion and instinct.
| The possibility of a scientific treatment of history means a wider experience, a greater maturity of practical reason, and finally a fuller realization of certain basic ideas regarding the nature of life and time.
