The Need for Vision



In the classroom, in management, in politics, and religion; in business, relationships, in government, and in the Temple called home; man must learn to live with recognition and respect for diversity, tolerance and restraint for difference if we are ever to hope for diplomacy, accommodation, and negotiation between nations. “Blessed are the Peacemakers,” for what hope is there without these qualities of Vision and Love, “for even if I have the gift of prophecy and know all mysteries, and all faith to move mountains, if I have not love, I am nothing,” and “where there is no vision, the people perish.” Never more was the vision of the mystic needed than now.

Life will go on forever, with nation’s well-meaning, science trying to account for the material universe, religion offering a solution, and man relentlessly seeking to reconcile hostile appearances with a loving God. He is impelled, often through extremity, to find the answer to the simple, yet profound questions that confront him: Who AM I? Where did I come from? What is the meaning of life? What is the true nature of existence? Where do I belong? What is the Truth of Being? Why evil? Where is God? What is it all about?

The more man finds the answer to these questions and comes to know the truth of himself, the closer he will come to a life lived in peace, a world filled with unity, joy, and compassion, and a heart filled with love. Then “out of the fullness of that Heart of Love, the mouth of man will speak” of the Love of God, man to man, nation to nation; truly “Thy kingdom come, the kingdom of God, on earth as it is in heaven,” Reality, ever present, Here, Now.
