Explorers of Mind

[For young adults]

The carnal mind is proposing a bizarre shortcut to joy and spiritual enlightenment these days, suggesting that with hallucinogenic drugs a person can bypass all demands upon himself to prove his relationship to the living God, Mind. Marihuana, a throwback to primitive ignorance, looms as a social phenomenon today. The more intense drug, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), has led the gaudy parade of a press-styled "love generation."

Since belief in matter underlies all limitation, swallowing matter in search of freedom is a perversion. Mindless matter can never confer instant spiritual enlightenment, new revelations of selfhood, or individual freedom and universal love. Only the recognition of the all-inclusiveness of Mind, Spirit, can free an individual and give him full dominion.

An enigmatical world confronts mankind. Is it any wonder that a questioning generation seeks new answers? Let us examine those aspects of the world that thoughtful young people rebel against. They are against the crass materialism in modern society. Practices passed down from generation to generation within the limited material sense of life are up for investigation. Disease, divorce, pressure paces, hypocrisy, materialism, mass murder, superficial religion, and the contemporary threat of total destruction of the human race are some of the social phenomena involved. For the individual, chasing rainbows through eight or nine decades of ephemeral joys and near disasters to gain the grave is a questionable pattern, to say the least. These images make one cry out for better concepts. Where are they to be found? In a better understanding of divine Mind, of God.
