A child is what some higher power makes it

How glad is a child when his mother gives him a new piece of cloth? If you ask him for it, he will refuse to give it and will say, “No, I won’t give it, Mamma has given it to me “. And he will hold the cloth tightly and watch, lest you should snatch it from him and as if his whole soul were in it. But a minute later, if he finds in your hand a toy not worth even a farthing, he will say,” Give me that, I will give you the cloth.” A moment later, perhaps, he will throw the toy away and run after a flower. He is attached to nothing.

What is the essence of this description?? A child is attached to nothing, therefore nothing is more valuable and nothing is less valuable. Values, if at any moment insisted upon, are not necessary values established in the world. A child is therefore so easy to be quietened because there is no opposing competition. On the other hand, the usual most temporary obstinacy is most forceful. But one does not know when that changes, because nothing has a permanent value with the child. Nothing is good and nothing is evil, nothing is permanently commendable and nothing is permanently repugnant. Rising a bit higher, nothing is child’s in the worldly sense and nothing is the child by itself. A child is what some higher power makes it. A child-like soul is a dry leaf that drifts itself to a scented or a stinking corner, as someone else desires and decides. He has no individuality, no aim and no object. He acts as it were by an instinct, which is too weak to have a permanent hold on him.

Where can peace and happiness be found?

Where can peace and happiness be found ?? The problem has been so often tackled and solved and again has got clouded and been lost and again tried and tackled anew, during the world’s eternity in the past. The human animal dives and daubs itself in the mud-pond of the world, being infatuated with its mirage-ful waters, gets sickened after some time, thinks of divinity, washes itself under the spiritual springs, gets again tempted to the mud pond; and the alternate stages of divinity and brutality go round, for eternity.

The word “brutal force” is again incomplete and misleading. Bless the day when the so-called brutal human world turns to be only an animal world. An animal has only an instinct. It does not go beyond the satisfaction of its little pleasure. A dog eats away your food, a cat sips away your milk, a goat chews away your plant and a donkey spoils your velvet carpet in the compound by rolling thereon. An ass enters any field as its own but leaves the field as soon as its hunger is finished. An animal knows only one thing – the immediate satisfaction of its hunger, though at any cost. But how little are we harassed, though in midst of them? What is their maximum demand, mischief and oppression?? Little or nothing, when compared with human beings.

 

Men are between deities and animals. They come down from being deity-like to be man-like. Their further stage of animal-like-ness is only quite a short passing phase. Just a stage of the few moments between one garment of yours and another, when you change them. Man immediately turns to be Satan-like after only counted moments of his animal-like-ness. Where can the whole development of Intellect and Will that he has passed through, while rising from the animal-ness to man-ness, go ?? He has receded two steps, only to take a much higher jump.

The satanic man speaks more wisely than deities themselves and acts more brutally than the animals themselves. The greatest masterpiece of his intellect is seen in the creation of perversions and delusions which keep the world in everlasting enslavement, ignorance and impenetrable darkness.

He spreads his thickest veil of blackness and casts his net to catch every fish that he can lay his hold on. He keeps on devising and executing plans and schemes that would keep the world spellbound and infatuated, and that would maintain his standing power over one and all, forever. More than three-fourths of this world is ruled by Satan and such Satan-like souls that look like merciful, straight and well-wishing benevolent deities.

Mother save Her surrendered sons from the clutches of Satanic souls !!
