From our Exchages

The real environment, the mighty forces that play upon life and mould character, are spiritual; and this is where we have power over our environment.

Because it is spiritual we can open mind and heart to it, or we can shut the door against it. We can submit to what is evil in our environment, or we can shun it. We can also, to some extent, select the forces that act upon us. If we wilfully submit ourselves to the influence of the lower, if we choose to associate with what impoverishes true life, if we let evil intercourse do its corrupting work on us, it will pervade and pollute all life. We may think that we can play with evil influences, enter their company when it suits us and leave it as we entered; ... but we are deceiving ourselves.—The Standard.
