Preparatory to every shift in human consciousness there is a pause, a
moment of stillness, in which the achievements of the past are
reappraised and, if found wanting, discarded. Thus it is today as man
assesses what is relevant and needful to preserve for future use, and
what is dispensable in the light of his growing awareness and insight.
Left to himself, this period for man would be long indeed. Many are the
experiments which he would require to make, and many are the
possibilities of error which could occur, ere the right path was found
and the right steps taken.
From now on, man can avail himself, if he so chooses, of the help and
experience of Us, his Elder Brothers, Who stand ready to aid and inspire
when called upon to do so.
Thus is this a time without precedent, when the Helpers are at hand in
every situation, careful to maintain manís divine free will, but eagerly
willing to give of Their age-long wisdom and hard-fought-for experience
Much that today seems important will pass away, to be replaced by
simpler and more natural ways of living and relationship. Gone, you may
be sure, will be the blasphemy of millions dying needlessly of want in
the midst of overflowing plenty. Gone, too, will be the intolerance
which so disfigures the human spirit today. Gone, for ever, the urge to
dominate, subdue and exploit the resources and territory of smaller and
weaker nations. In their place will grow a new realism, an understanding
of the inter-connectedness of all men and of their mutual rights and
obligations. Men and nations will seek to live by the rule of law and
the requirements of peace and security for all men.
Soon, the beginning of such a process will make its appearance. Already,
the men whose eyes are attuned to the future are making known their
insights and gaining attention. More and more, many will turn to them
for assurance and guidance, and in this way the new thought will take
root. Gradually, a transformation will take place in human thinking and,
inevitably, the old will give way to a new and saner approach to the
problems of life.
Thus, in a fiery cauldron, the shape of the future is being fashioned
now. The outlines, as yet, are dim and indistinct, yet sufficiently
clear, to those whose eyes are keen, to give assurance and hope that man
is awakening to his true identity and purpose, and, despite the
vicissitudes of the time, well set on his forward path.
