vanish self-interest. Co-operation will replace competition; certainty will replace fear; generosity will replace greed. Exploitation will disappear.
It has been asked why I have remained silent for seven years, communicating only by means of an alphabet board, and why I intend to break my silence shortly and it might be asked, in view of what has just been stated, what relation my speaking will have to the transformation of human consciousness which has been predicted.
Humanity, as at present constituted, uses three vehicles for the expression of thought, and experiences three states of consciousness. These three vehicles are: (l) the Mental Body, in which thoughts arise as the result of impressions from past experiences. These thoughts may remain latent in the mental body as seeds or they may be expressed. If they are expressed, they take first the form of desire, and pass first through the Subtle, or the Desire, Body, which is composed of the five psychic senses. They may rest here, as in the case of dreams or unfulfilled desire, or they may be further expressed in action though (3) the Physical Body with five physical senses.
The three states of consciousness corresponding to the three vehicles mentioned above are: (1) unconsciousness, as in deep, dreamless sleep, (2) sub-consciousness, as in dreams, or obscure, unformed and unfulfilled desires, and (3) waking consciousness, as in active daily life.
The process by which thought passes from the mental through the subtle into physical expression, may be called the expression of human will.
In order that thought may be expressed effectively, all three of the vehicles used in its expression must be perfectly clear and the interaction between them must be harmonious. The head and the heart must be united; intellect and feeling must be balanced; material expression must be understood to be the fruit of spiritual realization.
The God-man neither thinks nor desires. Through him, the Divine Will flows inevitably into perfect manifestation, passing directly from the spiritual body which, in the ordinary human being is undeveloped, into physical expression. For him, the super-conscious is the normal state of consciousness. From him there flows continuously infinite love and wisdom, infinite joy and peace and power.
In order to convey thought to others, man uses speech, or writing or some other physical means of expression; or, in some cases, as in telepathy, thought is transmitted, and received through and by the subtle body.
The God-man does not convey thought, but Truth, which he either awakens in the individual whom he is helping through deep, inner experience, or which he transmits directly from the super-conscious to the conscious, from the spiritual to the physical, by means of either the physical eye, the physical touch or the spoken word.
When he speaks, Truth is more powerfully manifested than when he uses either sight or touch to convey it. For that reason, 'Avatars' usually observe a period of silence lasting for several years, breaking it to speak only when they wish to manifest the Truth to the entire universe. So, when I speak, I shall manifest the Divine Will, and a world-wide transformation of consciousness will take place.

I was particularly glad to come to California because of the opportunity which it afforded to contact those who made or appeared in the moving pictures, and I am delighted that this gathering could be arranged for tonight.
I do not need to tell you, who are engaged in the production and distribution of moving pictures, what a power you hold in your hands; nor do I doubt that you are fully alive to the responsibility which the wielding of that power involves.
He who stimulates the imagination of the masses can move them in any direction he chooses, and there is no more powerful instrument for stimulating their imagination
