You spoke the other day about the great responsibility we have to get your words out to the world. Can you say some more?
The most important need of humanity today is to be made aware that its past has betrayed it; that there is no point in continuing the past, it will be suicidal; that a new humanity is absolutely and urgently needed. And the new humanity will not be a society in the old sense where individuals are only parts of it.
The new humanity will be a meeting of individuals, where individuals are the masters and the society is to serve them. It will have many different aspects to it. It will not have so many religions; it will have only a religious consciousness. It will not have a despot God as a creator because that implies slavery of man. It will have godliness as a quality of ultimate achievement, a quality of enlightenment. Godliness will be spread all over – in everything, in every being.
The individual, for the first time, will not be programmed; he will be helped to be himself. He will not be given any ideals, any discipline, any certain pattern. He will be given only a tremendous love for freedom so that he can sacrifice everything, even his own life, but he cannot sacrifice freedom. The new individual will not be repressive: he will be natural, with no inhibitions – expressive of everything that he has. Just the way plants express themselves in different colors, in different flowers, in different fragrances, each individual will be doing the same.
The new individual will not have the false idea that all human beings are equal. They are not. They are unique, which is a far superior concept to equality. Although the new individuals will not be equal, they will have equal opportunity to grow into their potential, whatever it is.
There will be no marriage: love will be the only law. Children will be part of the commune, and only the commune will decide who is capable of being a mother and who is capable of being a father. It cannot be at random and accidental. And it will be according to the need of the earth.
The new humanity will have an ecology in which nature is not to be conquered, but lived and loved. We are part of it – how can we conquer it? It will not have any races: no distinctions, discriminations between colors, castes. It will not have any nations, any states. It will have only a functional world government, and the world government will not be chosen by mediocre voters – because they necessarily chose people of their own category.
