Signs of the Times

[Frank M. Selover, in the Press-Telegram, Long Beach, California]

How apparent it is that the public thought must be reversed; that it must be turned away from fear and selfishness and contention to that "perfect love" which "casteth out fear"; to that absolute reliance on God that sees in each neighbor a member of the eternal brotherhood; which substitutes good will for envy and cupidity.

If the earth brings forth fruit each after its kind, then need one be surprised if mortal thinking of a false nature also produces falsity and disappointment? By radically changing the viewpoint from the sordid, the selfish, the fearsome, to the pure and the true as purity and truth are found in God's kingdom, then, indeed, will the "wilderness and the solitary place" in one's thought "be glad"; and the troubled mentality, the desert of human dread, will be aroused and transformed until it "shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose."
