Education seriously needs the stimulus of all who feel open to the spiritual dimension of existence if its practitioners and policy-makers are to take a long-term view of their purposes. Teachers who accept this spiritual movement have a new opportunity to work, not as militants or propagandists, but as seekers and defenders of the human right of younger members of the society to form a personal view about the spiritual dimension to life. Spiritual power lies in the awareness of the oneness of reality not of its divisions. In Christian theology, this oneness is represented by Christ, who combines the timeless and the timely by being both God and man. The spiritual quest, reinforced by the rational and intuitive qualities that are so powerfully present in the contemporary world, is unlikely to mean a going back to any social or political system that has existed.
