Notes

R.M. Bucke says "To this is added a state of moral exaltation, an indescribable feeling of elevation, elation and joyousness, and a quickening of the moral sense, which is fully as striking and more important both to the individual and to the race than is the enhanced intellectual power.[1]

Egalitarian outcomes: 14th century female Christian mystic Julian of Norwich is insistent that "the revelations which she was given and the insights that followed from them were not for her own benefit alone...but where given for...all the ordinary mean and women of her time...Thus she wrote in English, not French or Latin, so that her book could be read not just by the aristocracy or the clerical establishment by anyone able to read English; it could also be understood by anyone who had it read aloud to them. It was not restricted therefore to those--mostly clerics, therefore mostly men--who were well educated....She writes not only for those with special religious commitments but for everyone. Neither is her book full of demands and imprecations. It is gentle, reassuring, even while it fosters ever-deepening trust in God."[2]
