Baba states that the disease of selfishness in mankind will need a cure which is not only universal in its application, but is drastic in its nature. Now that humanity is thrown into continuously bloody conflicts, it is, through immense anguish, experiencing the utter instability and futility of life which is based on purely material conceptions. When man has sunk so low that he can sink no lower, when his intellectual powers and scientific pride are humbled in the dust, only then will he repent and cry to God for help.
The promised intervention will come, a miraculous outpouring of Divine Love will deluge humanity, flooding every corner of the heart, giving rise to a tremendous and universal upliftment, which will affect every man in proportion to his spiritual development. This will be the awakening of the "heart chakra" or center on a cosmic scale. Thus the New Age will be born and the New Humanity will come into existence through the release of Love in measureless abundance, and this release of Love will inspire such a change in consciousness as will enable the repentant and chastened peoples to come together. Only then will the remnants of the nations be able to lay the foundations for a real brotherhood, in which caste, color and creed will play no part. This will be the Golden Age!
Dear R_____, in BABA Love,
Thanks for your letter of 12th.
Well, shall I confide in you something very personal? That day 9th and 10th July was a day of remorse, unusual for me in my life, and it was evident BABA was working it up in me; it was a day of real "purgatory" as they call it. I observed silence but could not relish food that day. I could not read or contemplate on Baba's themes. It was a review of the past life-events, and my acts, deeds, words, and thoughts and what evil and good I had been responsible for and how I had injured many and so on. I am not ashamed of telling this as it is an experience which all sinners like me should one day have to go through. I could not contain myself unless I established a physical contact with BABA and hence, I went to the Telegraph Office and dashed off a telegram thus:
"Reviewing all past events of my life, I feel bitter remorse and feel that I was unworthy of being Thy Lover, disciple and worker. I pray for complete forgiveness and for Thy love and grace to make me worthy of Your Love and perennial grace in all ways.”
