Men say that social pressures and the trends of the times, like crushing and grinding gears, have eliminated the high standards of living and have trapped them into those degrading actions which throughout the entire historical stream have spelled the doom of civilization. Let me say then to those men and women of cosmic vision who can see the beautiful glyphs of spiritual initiation standing as marble stairs whitened and waiting the feet of the initiate: now is not the time to raise the white flag or to throw in the sponge!
Those who know how to divide humanity have been quite successful in so doing. The battle has been long, but the war between the legions of light and the denizens of darkness is not yet ended, although the victory is unquestioned....
Without recognition of their divinity, without compassion for their humanity civilization cannot mount; the nations of the world will be as thing--reduced to the chaos of whistling winds shrieking in the dark night of their souls' anguish and desolation.
Ours is the hope that climbs into the Master's chair....Let them (men) know that a God of infinite love has long ago completed that design which is the joy of the eternal spirit, the cup that runneth over. -Maitreya: Pearls of Wisdom 14:13 -Korean bronze, early 7th cent. A.D.
