Overconcerns Often Prevent Us from Taking the Action Which Frees Us

The dark ones continally seek to involve mankind in overconcern for externalities—political, personal, social, private—and in preconceived notions about the future of man or the future itself. These overconcerns often prevent man from taking the precise action which would free him from entanglements.

Yet, the dark ones weave their net most skillfully, and their snares have caught many unawares. But if the world be full of darkness, there is more light in the universe than all of the darkness of the world multiplied by the nothingness that it is. Those who, as insects, live out a cycle that in the cosmos is of less concern than a katydid (sabelsprinkhaan), will find that all of their seemingly great ideas come to naught (niets).

Purity of motive will assist the brothers in bringing in the golden age. All that which serves the needs of cosmos is great. All that which serves selfish desires of individual segments of society can be the approach of darkness and despair.

What, then, shall a man do to be saved? Commitment to the pristine ideas of God is a right step, and when love develops sufficiently to cognize the allness of God as of greater purpose than the turbulence of men and the spasms of self-seeking, the blessedness of freedom will come.
