Humanity is not going to be saved by any material power — nuclear or otherwise. It can be saved only through divine intervention. God has never failed humanity in its dark and critical periods. The greatest danger to man today is not from any natural catastrophe, but from himself.
It is not possible to realize human brotherhood merely by appealing to high ideals or to a sense of duty. Something more than that is essential to release human consciousness from the clutches of selfishness and greed.
Today the urgent need of mankind is not sects or organized religions, but Love. Divine love will conquer hate and fear. It will not depend upon other justifications, but will justify itself.
I have come to awaken in man this divine love. It will restore to him the unfathomable richness of his own eternal being and will solve all of his problems.
