It is not the Reality found by speculation or thinking alone, for intellect can err. It is the Reality found by the mystic intuition of mystic experience, by Reason (as opposed to intellect) of Philosophy, and verified by a realization more immediate and intimate than the ego of ordinary life, with its passions, emotions, and thoughts, and deeper than anything ever before experienced.
