An outstretched hand
There is in the very midst of humanity today, albeit hidden and awaiting its hour of manifestation, that which is the very opposite of what has already manifested itself through the evil channels. There is divine pity as against barbarous cruelty, sublime wisdom as against materialistic ignorance, altruistic service as against aggressive selfishness, and exalted reverence against hard atheism. There is the recall to a forgotten God. There is redemptive grace. There is a hand outstretched in mercy to the worst sinner, and in consolation to the worst sufferer. Those who are mystically sensitive feel its presence even now, however intermittently.
… There are new forces penetrating this planet’s atmosphere today and they demand a new inspiration, new thinking, and a new way of living …
A time comes
when the seeker is so thoroughly penetrated with philosophic ideals that the higher life will become the everyday life.
