Four phases of religious philosophy

From Symmetry of Soul

From [101:7.4]

There are four phases in the evolution of religious philosophy:

  1. Conformative. Resigned to submission to tradition and authority.
  2. Stabilize daily living. Slight attainments, just enough to stabilize the daily living, and therefore early arrested. "Just let well enough alone, would ya?" they say.
  3. Logical intellectuality. Giant intellects stagnate here because of cultural slavery and cultural bondage. Or the fall prey to materialism.
  4. Freedom. Freedom from all conventional and traditional handicaps. The religionist dares to think, act, and live honestly, loyally, fearlessly, and truthfully.
