Spiritual awakening is the most essential thing in
man’s life, and it is the sole purpose of being. Is
not civilization, in all its tragic forms, a supreme
motive for spiritual awakening? Then how can we deny
existing matter, while its very existence is unwavering
proof of its conformability into the intended fitness?
The present civilization may possess a vanishing purpose,
but the eternal law has offered to that purpose a ladder
whose steps can lead to a free substance.
