I’m thinking about the goal of spiritual life…

Huston Cummings Smith quotes:

 

“If we take the world’s enduring religions at their best, we discover the distilled wisdom of the human race.”

********** 

“Institutions are not pretty. Show me a pretty government.

Healing is wonderful, but the American Medical Association?

Learning is wonderful, but universities?

The same is true for religion…religion is institutionalized spirituality.”

********* 

“The goal of spiritual life is not altered states, but altered traits.”
