Education is the business of living; it must continue throughout a lifetime so that mankind may gradually experience the ascending levels of mortal wisdom, which are:

  • 1. The knowledge of things.
  • 2. The realization of meanings.
  • 3. The appreciation of values.
  • 4. The nobility of work--duty.
  • 5. The motivation of goals--morality.
  • 6. The love of service--character.
  • 7. Cosmic insight--spiritual discernment.

And then, by means of these achievements, many will ascend to the mortal ultimate of mind attainment, God-consciousness.[2]
