THE NEW HUMANITY WILL COME INTO EXISTENCE
The New Humanity will come into existence through a release of love in
measureless abundance, and this release of love can come through
spiritual awakening brought about by the Masters. Love cannot be
born of mere determination; through the exercise of will one can at
best be dutiful. Through struggle and effort, one may succeed in
assuring that one's external action is in conformity with one's
concept of what is right; but such action is spiritually barren
because it lacks the inward beauty of spontaneous love.
Love has to spring spontaneously from within; it is in no way amenable
to any form of inner or outer force. Love and coercion can never go
together, but while love cannot be forced upon anyone, it can be
awakened through love itself.
