There is no counsel of
perfection to give the world or any solution which will carry immediate relief. To the
spiritual leaders of the race certain lines of action seem right and to guarantee
Time must be
given for the needed adjustments and humanity must learn to be intelligently patient;
humanity must face with courage and optimism the slow process of building the new
intelligent and cooperative public opinion must be developed in every land and the doing
of this constitutes a major spiritual duty. This will take much time but if the
men of goodwill and if the spiritual people of the world will become genuinely
active, it can be done in twenty-five years.
economic council (or whatever body represents the resources of the world) must free
itself from fraudulent politics, capitalistic influence and its devious scheming; it must
set the resources of the earth free for the use of humanity. This will be a lengthy
task but it will be possible when world need is better appreciated. An enlightened public
opinion will make the decisions of the economic council practical and possible. Sharing
and cooperation must be taught instead of greed and competition.
be freedom to travel everywhere in any direction and in any country; by means of this free
intercourse, members of the human family may get to know each other and to appreciate each
other; passports and visas should be discontinued because they are symbols of the great
heresy of separateness.
The men of
goodwill everywhere must be mobilized and set to work; it is upon their efforts that the
future of humanity depends; they exist in their millions everywhere and - when organized
and mobilized - represent a vast section of the thinking public.
- The United Nations, through its Assembly and Committees, must be supported; there
is as yet no other organization to which man can hopefully look. Therefore, he must
support the United Nations but, at the same time, let this group of world leaders know
what is needed.
- The general public in every nation must be educated in right human relations.
Above all else, the children and the youth of the world must be taught  goodwill to
all men everywhere, irrespective of race or creed.
It will be
through the steady, consistent and organized work of the men of goodwill throughout the
world that world unity will be brought about. At present,  such men are only in
process of organizing and are apt to feel that the work to be done is so stupendous and
the forces arrayed against them are so great that their - at present - isolated efforts
are useless to break down the barriers of greed and hate with which they are confronted.
They realize that there is as yet no systemized spread of the principle of goodwill which
holds the solution to the world problem; they have as yet no idea of the numerical
strength of those who are thinking as they do. They ask themselves the same questions
which are agitating the minds of men everywhere: How can order be restored? How can there
be fair distribution of the world's resources? How can the Four Freedoms become factual
and not just beautiful dreams? How can true religion be resurrected and the ways of true
spiritual living govern the hearts of men? How can a true prosperity be established which
will be the result of unity, peace and plenty?
