Thought Adjuster: “Human beings often seek shortcuts to promote the changes they desire in a quicker way. Few among you dedicate their lives to projects for which they may not see results because they are for future generations. It is natural for human beings to desire immediate solutions that can be used here and now. It is natural for those who work on any project to wish seeing the results of their efforts and know in their experience that what they have done has not been in vain.

However, men and women of faith should remember that every effort made in favor of the will of the Father is never wasted and invariably produces the expected results. Seeking shortcuts will never produce permanent solutions. How many countries in your world, after changing their political systems through armed revolutions, are now in a better place? Normally what happens is that those who replace the old order end up falling for the same mistakes and the same vices of the previous rulers.

A permanent solution for the conflicts and problems of this world is only possible when the spiritual level is raised in the hearts of each human being. Education, even when it plays an important role in social development, on its own will not help. Education without the moral foundations based on an authentic individual spirituality is practically useless when trying to solve problems and improve humanity’s quality of life.

The speed of the changes is not important. If all those involved in a social movement do not make an effort to improve themselves and become individual examples of the society they want to see, the changes produced will be condemned to disappear in time. The responsibility to build a better world rest upon the shoulders of all. The changes and the solutions for the problems of the world should spring from the hearts of its inhabitants. It should be a change expressed from within individuals toward the group, not the other way around.

The new leaders of humanity would benefit from reminding their followers that each one of them must become the new kind of men and women they desire for their groups, nations, and world. This is the only way that will bring a superior civilization to Urantia, a civilization where morality and social life are based upon mutual love among human beings and the universal fraternity of the children of God.”
