The New Humanity – an integral vision of the Truth



A hodge-podge of collected ideas can never be a substitute for a direct and fresh perception of the Goal. The new world-culture will have to emerge from an integral vision of the Truth independent of existing traditions and not from the laborious process of selection and compilation of conserved values.

The vast vision of the Truth cannot be limited by any creed, dogma or sect: however, it helps men to transcend these limitations, not by blind and total denial of any value to the existing creeds, dogmas and sects, but by discovering, accentuating, unfolding and developing such facets of the Truth as might have been hidden in them.

All narrowness limits love. In every part of the world, humanity is breaking itself into narrow groups of caste, creed, race, nationality, religion or culture: and since these groups have been long accustomed to separative distrust and fear, they have indifference, contempt or hostility towards each other. All this is due to ignorance, prejudice and selfishness: and it can only be mended by fostering the spirit of mutuality which breaks through artificial isolationism, and which derives its strength from the sense of the inviolable unity of life as a whole. Creative leadership will have to recognize and emphasize the fact that all men are already united with each other not only by their co-partnership in the Great Divine Plan for Earth, but also by virtue of their all being equally the expression of One Life. No line of action can be really helpful or fruitful, unless it is in entire harmony with this deep Truth. The Future of Humanity is in the hands of those who have vision.

“The goal of life is to know God, the Infinite One, in everyday life. Baba gives you his love, that love which will eventually help you to find God.”
