Saints and Madmen: Psychiatry Opens its Doors to Religion
Russell Shorto
Explains how pioneering psychiatrists are creating a new science of the Soul.

1 "Individual being is wrapped up in the being of other individuals, and in Being itself."

2 "The similarity of reported mystical experiences around the world and through time was one body of evidence that led William James to conclude that spirituality is basically one thing; that the plurality of the world's religions are only different manifestations of the same religion, different staircases, variously carved and polished, that all lead to the same place. Religions are many – mysticism is one."

3 "Consider that you are in God, surrounded and encompassed by God, swimming in God." Mother Teresa

4 "Relation is the essence of everything that is." Meister Eckhart

5 "Every bit of us at every moment is part and parcel of a wider self." William James, 'A Pluralistic Universe'

6 "We are all part of One; we are One." Erich Fromm, 'The Art of Loving'

7 "Prayer is a bridge to the divine, the connecting tissue between the individual and the All."

8 "The human being is made up not only of biological, emotional, and social forces but includes something that transcends the personal and has to do with an individual's intuition of being part of the universe, of being connected to all of life."

9 "Despite ordinary appearances, our inner life and the outer life of the world are deeply interrelated….in some sense, All is One."
