"Much of the great art around the world is found in the context of religion and spiritual practice. Nothing is more powerful to inducing a contemplative attitude than a beautiful statue of the Buddha or a Renaissance motet or cathedral ceiling. In modern life we usually place art in a more abstract location, a museum, home or slide show. We have lost touch with the immediate power of a piece of art to help you transcend your self and world to reach into ultimate mysteries. We also fail to understand how incredibly revealing night dreams can be and how they also take us to realms of mystery directly related to our lives. They, too, serve the spiritual life."
