The Mark

Physical and Spiritual Man
Maurice Nicoll

The Mark by Maurice Nicoll, from the intro: “Man touches the Earth with his physical feet, but he touches life with his psychological feet. His most external psychological level is sensual, a matter of sensation, a matter of the senses. That is, his most external thinking and feeling arise from what he perceives from sense. This level represents the feet of his psychological being as distinct from the feet of his physical being, and the kind of shoes which cover his feet represent his particular views, opinions, and attitudes that he wears or uses in his approach to sense-given life. Without your five senses, external life would not exist for you. How does a man walk the Earth? We speak here psychologically. How does his outermost psychology relate itself to external life?”
