PERSPECTIVE ON THE NEWS

Reversing the drift toward war

It's so easy to become deeply interested—even engrossed—in specific events when sharp international antagonisms arise. The hostage-taking in Iran, the unsuccessful rescue attempt by the United States, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan—these developments, and new confrontations daily, have drawn such intense public scrutiny that much of the world seems preoccupied with analyzing the minute details of each event. One of the dangers is in not adequately recognizing the larger implications: the apparent drift into positions that make war more difficult to avoid.

Those who through prayer are contributing to the solution of present turmoil need to deal very specifically with this danger. Conflicting religious beliefs, blind nationalism, growing frustrations, pride, rigidity, fear—all these elements of mortal consciousness need to be expressly confronted and nullified with exact and powerful spiritual truths. Our growing acceptance of the action of divine Truth will contribute to a full-fledged solution.
