Where Is Humanity Now?
Lost in the wilderness of Mind and Heart, deep in the desolation brought about by its own unerring cleverness. Humanity is at an end. The Old Human Being, dominated by heart and mind, full of its own cleverness, is finished. There is nothing left. The inner pollution has become outer pollution. The inner selfishness has become self-centered nationalism. The inner anger has become war. There is no way out but death. Only death can lead to new life.
But this death is something new. This is not the death of the body. This is not the end of Human Kind. This is the death of the Old Humanity dominated by heart and mind, tossed hither and thither by the passions which know no bounds. This is the death of the ism of nations. This is the death of the old god who interposed himself between Humanity’s Inner Nature and ADA, the Lord of All. This is the death of fragmentation and aloneness. This is the death of halfness and the truths of halfness. This is the death of partiality. For ADA is the Lord of All, and Allness knows no fragmentation, no halfness, no partiality.
All over the world the new balance is coming: the balance of Inner with Outer, Woman with Man, East with West, Night with Day, Old with Young, Soul with Body and the Instruments of Body—the Heart and Mind, the Cleverness and Will. There will be no secrets now, for all things will be open. Human beings will talk with trees, and trees will tell how they grow. Humanity will see not with the eye of science only, but with the Inner Eye, the Eye which is clear of the muddying Passions.
Eyes to see and Ears to hear: Now they are being formed. New eyes and ears for the New Human Being, the bridger of East and West, Woman and Man, Night and Day, Old and Young, Inner and Outer. For the world is pregnant with change. The time has come. The world is breathing heavy with labor. The pains are coming faster and faster, harder and harder. They are almost too much to bear...
Jesus was born on the Cross, the bow which shot him to Heaven. There is no birth without pain, no blessing without suffering, no change without dislocation. This is the Universal Law. God is a Circle, constant in configuration and degrees. There is no change. Humanity is a triangle with shifting aspects. Though its totality is constant, its angles constantly change. These changes we call life. These changes we call death. Life and death, birth and dying—these are but changes of aspect, of appearance, not of the totality, which is constant and beyond change. In this way Adam’s Race resembles its Creator, for in their Natures both are Totalities, beyond the realm of change.
On earth this totality is known as Family: Man, Woman, Child. Human beings go from infant to child to adult. Adults return to the simplicity and helplessness of infants. The angularity shifts. The cycle is complete. Even this cycle resembles God. Then we say, “Life is complete.”
