You're exactly right. And because of that, I hope the problems humanity has brought on itself get worse. These problems will never be fixed; the same
problems that got us in the position we're in now will never be gone until we are gone. That is what I hope for.
Fortunately, there are two possible States of Life. One is Nature, and the other is God manifested in Nature, and as God and Nature are both within
you, so you have it in your Power to live and work with either the one or the other. There is no standing still, because life goes on and it is always
bringing forth its Realities, whatever way one chooses.
Man without God is in a state of restless Hunger, Disquiet, and blind Strife, till the Property of Light and Love has got Possession of that state.
Now when you see this, you see the true State of every natural Man; blind Nature does all the Work, and must be the Doer of it, till the Christ of God
is born in him. For the Life of Man can be nothing else but a Hunger of Covetousness, a Rising up of Pride, Envy, and Wrath, a medley of contrary
Passions, doing and undoing because these Workings are the Properties of Nature left to itself. The properties of the natural man, without the
supernatural birth of Christ in him, must be always hungering, and working one against another, striving to be above one another, and all this in
Blindness, till the Light of God has helped such natural properties look to one common Good, in which they all willingly unite, rest, and rejoice.
Goodness to the unregenerate man is only a Sound and Virtue, a mere Strife of natural Passions, till the Spirit of Love is the Breath of every Thing
that lives and moves in his Heart. For Love is the one only Blessing and Goodness, and the very God of Nature; and we have no true Religion, are no
Worshiper of the one true God, but in and by that Spirit of Love, which is God himself living and working in us.
The Way to escape from the bestial life requires one to accept the disparity of all human effort and to humbly accept a union of the Divine Light of
God made manifest in the Soul through the rebirth of the spirit that was lost at the fall of both men and angels. Nature can do nothing that is
contrary to it's own internal workings, and the Spirit of Love can do nothing that is contrary to God; it is it's own goodness and rejoices only in
itself, because it is in itself, an immutable eternal will to all goodness.
The rebirth is the Divine wisdom of the ages, but foolishness to man.
