Spiritual Peace

[Original article in German]

The peace for which men long can be known only meta-physically, through understanding the first record of creation, given in the first chapter of Genesis. We must all wake to see ourselves as children of the one creator and in this way perceive our oneness with God. As soon as we lean upon the truth about creation, in which man is recorded as created in the likeness of God, Love, the fetters of false belief are loosened and we comprehend our spiritual relationship as the offspring of divine Love.

Material viewpoints, limiting traditions, pride of race, bind the ignorant with chains, but these limiting beliefs give way to spiritual understanding. How could even one thought of war arise, if we saw that we are children of one Father-Mother, God, and that everyone has his place in God's creation? Not a single weapon would be wielded henceforth if men fully understood that truth.

The downfall of Babylon, of sensuality, would be assured if everyone understood creation to be spiritual, no longer regarding it as an increase of people, but as the creator's infinite unfoldment of ideas.
