Placing no emphasis on gender, but on qualities.
Immature minds keep on disputing about gender, race, nationality…We better concentrate our individual minds on love, unity, peace, prosperity, progress for all mankind.
The real problem of our generation is spiritual starvation, yes the spiritual starvation of each individual.
We usually agree with the ideal of love, unity, peace, prosperity, progress…for all mankind. But we have no common standards to attain real consent of thought, especially of action. We claim the service of these high ideals, but in confrontation with one another, instead of unification for the final victory of the whole race.
This problem can be solved only on the spiritually individual basis, by independently seeking for the truth and stick to it.
Not many people have clear ideas about this high endeavour, because they have no chance to hear about this common task which was supposed to be preserved for philosophers, although philosophers do not agree among themselves on any truth. We desire a happy world and we try not to make our contribution to it.
Throughout history, we see that only the Founders of World Religions can give lessons about truth, spiritual truth. Their believers attain great unity in thought as well as in action for centuries.
Today, we need a new vision to reconsider all things on a global scale. No problems can be solved within the boundaries of families, tribes or nations. Global warming, air pollution, nuclear war…are threatening the destruction of all mankind, and no world leaders or thinkers can give a plan for the preservation, or even better, for the glorious advancement of our world.
The Saviour Himself doesn’t use any physical power to force people turning to Him. He bears the greatest sufferings all his life, while silently and continuously wins individual hearts with love and wisdom. I only propose that each individual among us to embark on seeking for her/his own Master, until when s/he meets the One Who convincingly shows the complete Divine Plan.
All the Prophets in the past have given the unfailing promise: “Seek and ye will find.” Our ancestors have sought and found the spiritual truth, in the last 6,000 years under the Adamic Cycle, and they have built the Buddhist civilization, the Christian civilization, the Muhammadan civilization…. Today, you don’t care about what I say, I don’t submit my will under yours, how can we co-exist in unity of thought and of action?
Without seeking humbly and persistently, how can we recognize the real Master of our own self, and moreover, the real Master of all mankind in millennia to come?
What “oppression” is more grievous than that a soul seeking the truth, and wishing to attain unto the knowledge of God, should know not where to go for it and from whom to seek it?
