If you are watering a plant- water it with Love because it is an expression of the Sublime Intelligent Principle, because intelligent forces have shaped it.

Comprehending it in such a way, the world will be transformed in our vision. The Great Love will relate us to the whole Universe. This Love flowing out of God spreads over everything and we are its expression.

Of all the different races, the representatives of the contemporary one are the most beautiful, because the spiritual essence has manifested itself to a greater extent in it than in the more primitive races. This reveals that the source of beauty is the manifestation of the Divine principle, the increasing expression of God. The Master claims that the faces of the people belonging to the sixth race will be even more beautiful than of those of the fifth one, the contemporary one, because they will give spirituality an even greater vent. The angel visages are beautiful beyond description because they reflect God even better. Consequently, all beauty is a reflection of God. The more perfect a creature is, the better it evinces God; the more beautiful it is. Why do music, poetry, art, sculpture, architecture, nature, noble deeds stir the Divine impulses in a person? Because through the world of beauty we enter in a communion with God which in turn gives us the opportunity to reveal our superior soul, to evince Love. Since beauty awakens the Divine particle in a person, it helps people befriend each other and brings harmony among them.


The Master points out: "collective prayer, collective singing, joint eating, joint work unite the souls." Keeping in touch and collective work can truly unite people not in a mechanical junction, but in the genuine bond of love among souls. Hence, each member should strive towards developing love in him / herself.


Implementing all these mles for spiritual work, for perfecting life and connecting person to God and Love, evety morning send a thought into the world for the Sublime Justice of God to rise up in all people, their Love of God and their desire to perform His will to augment. Forward the idea that they join the path of joy, happiness and peace; this is the path of Love. These ideas transmitted through the air will reach all souls and will awaken in them sublime promptings and desires urging them to devote their life to God. This work of yours, this call to all souls will not be futile. It will bear fmit of its own, will contribute for the development of Love in you as well as in others. Have in mind that every activity, every creative work has a result only if it is prompted by Love. Outward creativity is necessary, yet it is Love that unlocks genuine creative processes. By its very nature, Love is active. As soon as Love is developed within a person, it will provide new direction to his/her actions. Love is the only power that can bring about the proper resolution to all social controversies.
