“Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.”
In effect, the people who change our lives the most begin to sing to us while we are still in darkness. If we listen to their song, we will see the dawning of a new part of ourselves. — Rabindranth Tagore
Human civilization now faces the final moment of a critical juncture. The dawn of a glorious new era is on its one side and the worn-out skeleton of the past on the other. People have to adopt either of these two.
You are the spiritual soldiers, you are the worshippers of Life Divine, hence I call upon you to adorn this crimson dawn deluged with glorious light. Victory is surely yours. — Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, 1 January 1967
Today all over the world, a grim fight has started between the evil forces and the benevolent forces. Only those who possess the moral courage to fight against the evil forces, can give a soothing touch to the struggle-torn earth with the balm of peace. Remember you are spiritual aspirants. Hence you alone shall have to undertake the mighty task of saving the earth. — Shrii Shrii Anandamurti
In these days of sable rattling and war mongering over Iran, Lebanon and other parts of the world we have to be very clear where we stand. We as ordinary human beings must make up our minds and give allegiance to the voice of humanity anchored in spirituality – in Sanskrit it is called ‘Dharma’ , in Arabic and Persian it is called ‘Iman’ . It is our total dedication to our spiritual humanness that lights up our existence that cannot compromise with injustice, with falsehood, with deception but that affirms our inseparable connection to each and everyone on this planet.
The fact that the fortune of every individual, not only of this earth but of the entire cosmos, has been wreathed together, will have to be admitted one day by people.
We as so called civilized people have to elevate our collective standard and demonstrate living as real human beings. We should have enough intelligence and erudition to provide decent and dignified living to all people, including the population increase on this planet. Aggressive wars for vested interests based on deception and falsehood are the vestiges of the darkest part of human character. War is based on hatred and divisive tendencies, so those who plan war are pulling down our collective humanity. They blacken the face of humanity.
One thing is sure – humanity is on the rise, we have passed the threshold of the dark hours to a new era of a higher standard of humanity. There is still a tug of war and war may escalate but there is certainly NO victory in sight for the war aggressors, rather they may just express their total dark failure.
Let us keep in mind it is not the barrel of a gun but the spiritual force of human beings that is the real source of power on this planet.
