The Perennial Philosophy

The Perennial Philosophy
Aldous Huxley

Knowledge is a function of being. When there is a change in the being of the knower, there is a corresponding change in the nature and amount of knowing.”

“In regard to man’s final end, all the higher religions are in complete agreement. The purpose of human life is the discovery of Truth, the unitive knowledge of the Godhead. The degree to which this unitive knowledge is achieved here on earth determines the degree to which it will be enjoyed in the posthumous state. Contemplation of truth is the end, action the means.” (Actually from his 1944 introduction to the Bhagavad-Gita, but summarizes The Perennial Philosophy well)
