|Inch by inch, humanity is nearing its readiness for
decision. Events are forcing governments to seek new answers to the vexing problems which,
today, defy resolution. More and more, they are hearing new voices with new and varied ideas
which advocate an entirely different approach to their dilemma. The thoughtform of the new
direction of human thinking and action is gradually taking hold. This being so, despite the
present chaos, it augers well for the future.
The nations are finding that the old methods and mechanisms no longer work, that crisis after crisis undoes all forward movement, while the cries and demands of the poor become ever more persistent and loud. Slowly but surely, the necessity to share begins to dawn on the minds of many. Soon this concept will register powerfully on the consciousness of the race and in due course will be established as the Ďmissing linkí in menís thinking.
Of course, not all men will, at first, see the need for this drastic and radical answer to menís troubles. The old competitive instinct dies hard. Gradually, however, the simple good-sense of sharing, the advantages of co-operation, and the renewed feeling of well-being through well-doing will convince all but the few. A new era of light will make itself manifest in the world.
In the glow of this revelation man will begin to realize certain fundamental truths of his existence and Being. He will know, as a palpable fact, that he is one of a great brotherhood who live and suffer and die together, as One. That the divisions and differences, which have meant so much to so many, and have caused so much of the suffering, are only seeming. That behind all outer appearance stands immortal Man, journeying together to perfection and the true expression of his divinity.
The world is awakening to the truth of manís existence: Man is divine, the outer expression of his true reality as soul. Through all vicissitudes, his soul has guarded him and shown him the path. Never has the soul been absent from the fray, the high endeavour or the reluctant effort. Man and soul are One.
Such is the truth awaiting manís discovery. The soul awaits this dawning revelation. Man is at the end of his apprenticeship in life. The soul, from now, directs a higher and a clearer path.
