MM Book 1 Chapter 4-17

The communitarian values are inherent within the Gospel message; the spiritual and physical are inextricably intertwined together, they cannot be separated and must be lived and experienced together; there is only one way: to conquer others is to know power, *to conquer yourself is to know the way* [the physical is a reflection of the spiritual]; the spiritual focus in all aspects of life is primary, the spiritual nature in each of us -- cities thick with people need to be stirred; the begettal of physical society, a transformation from the ground up - truth planted, nurtured, harvested - conversion is a process; people seek to understand themselves [self-actualization and maturation] in terms of their social environment but our basic human needs for meaning and understanding are not being met; we are comfortably numb - a new mode of existence is needed, one that illuminates the nature of human existence and its ideal possibilities.
