Certain faculties of man are directed toward the Unknown–thought, meditation, prayer. The unknown is an ocean, of which conscience is the compass. Thought, meditation, prayer, are the great mysterious pointings of the needle. It is a spiritual magnetism that thus connects the human soul with the Deity. These majestic irradiations of the soul pierce through the shadow toward the light.

Morals & Dogma, p. 9

We are to hear and read and meditate, that we may act well; and the action of Life is itself the great field for spiritual improvement.

Morals & Dogma, p. 243
