Beyond all the divisions of mind.

I do believe that our world is now in a over anxious state, becoming over whelmed and thus, not being enabled, in anyway, to clarify the distortions.  However, I believe it unwise, spiritually and psychologically unwholesome to emphasize this, for it raises none to higher things, but depresses courage,  the courage to meet life and carry on in a higher nobler way.  This manner of thinking goes      beyond all the divisions of mind, for it is to see beauty in and behind things, see beauty in all human beings no matter their race; see likewise the ignorance and the ugliness in life, though do not let these latter depress you or discourage you.  There is no reason to lose our calm, or our inner peace, in order to become like those who are passion driven, and governed by prejudice.  Such an attitude will not help us or those who suffer.  We have it within ourselves to send into the world, thoughts of courage and hope and an optimistic looking into the future: that no matter what happens, our folly or infamy or infidelity to his or her's inner god, to his or her's spiritual essence, that there is always right and justice which will ultimately triumph over all.  The only thing that is sure, is to be that we are on the side of right and justice---- and let us not forget, that we cannot always judge by appearances.  

Those who do not like this optimistic outlook and conviction and who are trying to get down into the arena of hysteria and discouragement, mock at it; yet every sane human who keeps there mind cool and clear and can think for there selves realizes full well that the mightiest forces in this world are cosmic right and cosmic justice, and they in the long run will always prevail. There is no need, to be discouraged.  Avoid hysterias; on the other hand, avoid running at one and the same with the hares and chasing with the hounds, which is what we all do more or less.  Have your own convictions and some times hide them if it is not wise to shout them from the house tops; but keep your own heart upright, in love with love, hating hate, always standing up for justice and innate right. Only be sure that when you stand up you are not standing up for the propaganda atmosphere around you, but for something that you in your heart know to be true.

It would be a sorrowful thing if there were nothing to our world but what we see around us today, or have seen at particular intervals during the past; but every time and always the conscience and the sense of justice of mankind have proved supreme over all and risen above human feelings and follies, and marched onward and upwards toward balance and harmony.  Don't be down hearted or discouraged or think the world is going to the devil because you don't like what is going on.  You have the right to like or dislike it.  But be sure that you, as an individual, on your part do not add to the hatred in the world, and add to its discouragement and unhappiness.   

                            Thank you, G. D. P.  One truth many paths.  Be Good, do good.
