Here, the reactive as opposed to active nature of spirituality corresponds to the oft-noted distinction between faith (sacred experience) and works (good deeds). The former involves a receptive form of devotion or worship (reactive other-oriented intrinsic value); the latter entails some manipulative intervention, thereby placing it under our category of ethics (active other-oriented intrinsic value). In this connection, faith is viewed as involving an orientation toward some Other in the form of God, a Divine Spirit, or a Cosmic Force (Parker 1957:20), whereas ecstasy involves a mystical disappearance of the self-other dichotomy in a manner that seems to merge the self with the Other, to permit one to lose oneself in the Other, or to achieve a union with the Other and that thereby produces a sense of exaltation or rapture (Perry 1954:488; Frondizi 1971:118).
