The less the faith, the more undeveloped and blunt the intellect. You may be a learned man; but if lacking in faith, surely you are no better than a gramophone record or an ox carrying a load of words. He who has no unquivering faith has no realization. And how can he who has no realization be wise? As much one’s realization, so much one’s vision and wisdom, and in wisdom is the firmness of faith. If you don’t believe, you neither see nor realize, and if you see and realize, it ripens your faith.
