HOW CAN PEACE PREVAIL?
"See the world — everywhere talk about peace goes on. Big conferences are held to talk about peace. Why has this talk started?
"Because of fear.
"Atom bombs, hydrogen bombs, missiles and poisonous war material have been made in such quantity that the whole world can be destroyed. Now everyone is afraid. Talk about peace continues, yet still the preparation of war material goes on and on. No country has any confidence in any other country. They talk in a friendly way. But this is all an outward thing. Because evil forces are working everywhere with greater and greater power, destruction cannot be avoided. There is no honesty. There is no love. There is no confidence in anyone. Everyone and every country are engulfed by evil forces. Until these evil forces are destroyed, there can be no peace. But where are these evil forces?
"There are two types of impressions or sanskaras. One is natural, another unnatural. Natural impressions take you towards progress of consciousness, that is, towards Reality, God. Unnatural impressions create evil forces and take everyone away from Reality. Because of these unnatural impressions, humanity is under the grip of evil forces.
"Selfishness, greed, corruption, exploitation, lust, anger, wants, jealousy, hypocrisy, slander, backbiting and all low desires are increasing to every extent. Instead of love, hatred is arising. Human beings are worse than violent animals. In this situation, no one has any idea what will happen.
"If war takes place, and humanity is destroyed, can that solve the problem? The problem cannot be solved. Population is increasing like anything because people from different planets are taking birth on this earth. There is a shortage of food, shortage of water, changes in climatic conditions, different diseases and different calamities.
"If war takes place, can there be any peace?
"No. Not at all. Peace will come when people are free from unnatural impressions. Their consciousness will then proceed towards God. All low desires will be wiped out. Only then can peace reign. War is not the solution for bringing about this change in order for peace to reign....
"It is certain that three-quarters of the world will be destroyed. It is going to happen. It is a definite thing. But what about those low desires?
"If they are not wiped out, people will again take birth with them all.
"Now, try to understand properly. These low desires create noise. They are unnatural, created by unnatural impressions. Natural impressions create sound, which takes you toward the progress of consciousness towards God. This sound emanates from the Whim. When there are no impressions, there remains the Infinite Voice of God.
"Why did I observe silence? Do you know?
"At the time of the destruction of the world, My Silence will be broken. The noise of the world will be absorbed in the Ocean of My Silence. That bomb will absorb all noise in My Ocean of Silence. This bomb will be released in silence, and therefore it will be sudden. When those who die come back, they will have natural impressions with progressive consciousness."
