20.

They all say that God is the Truth, the only thing that really exists; that spirit alone is, not matter.
Yet the things they seek of God are rarely spirit.
They ask always for material things.

In their prayers spirit is not separated from matter. Degradation — that is what religion has turned out to be.
The whole thing is becoming sham. And the years are rolling on and nothing spiritual is being attained.
But man should hunger for one thing alone, the spirit, because spirit alone exists.

That is the ideal. If you cannot attain it now, say, "I cannot do it; that is the ideal, I know, but I cannot follow it yet."
But that is not what you do. You degrade religion to your low level and seek matter in the name of spirit.
You are all atheists. You do not believe in anything except the senses.

"So-and-so said such-and-such — there may be something in it. Let us try and have the fun. Possibly some benefit will come; possibly my broken leg will get straight."
