‘The profoundest disclosure in the religious experience is the awareness that the individual is not alone. What he discovers as being true and valid for himself must at last be a universal experience or else it ultimately loses all of its personal significance. His experience is personal, private, but in no sense exclusive. All of the vision of God and holiness which he experiences, he must achieve in the context of the social situation by which his day-by-day life is defined. What is disclosed in this religious experience, he must define in his community.’

Hate, then, becomes a form of annihilation of self and others; in short – suicide.’

  1. Easy to get focused like a cat staring at specks of dusts and forget about the reality and importance of the universal.
