Friends! We are the weavers of our own destiny. We have made our lives pitiful by becoming puppets at the hands of our own weaknesses and shortcomings. But we can overcome these with the help of our own conscience and perceptions. But, for this we need to go through a mental reformation. This mental reformation is the main foundation of a new era which is also a consequence of the thought transformation.
We face numerous problems and adversities in our lives, but we fail to understand that they are a result of our ignorance and frivolity. And the solution to these afflictions lies in awareness and enlightenment of the core of our hearts and souls.
A spider weaves its own web and gets entangled in it. But then it decides to break free and focuses its entire energy towards its freedom. It collects its own web in the form of a ball & swallows it whole. In the same way we have to loosen the knots of our adversities and become a free-soul. We cannot see these knots due to the darkness of the absurdity of our own minds. Once we decide and awaken our faculties, we would ignite the flame of our wisdom and would be able to open all the knots and set ourselves free.

Knowledge is a natural instinct of our soul. It makes us aware and alert, it helps us to enjoy the happiness in life and it makes us successful. A person devoid of knowledge will always remain shackled within the boundaries of life and death. Knowledge casts out all of the darkness of ignorance and leads us towards the path of salvation. Hence, knowledge is the most unique, pure and valuable virtue of life. Only A person with appropriate apprehension has the capability to differentiate between what is true and what is false, to weigh the feasibility and importance of the situations that life has to offer. Hence, such a person surrenders himself to God in all circumstances. He understands that it is useless to wander here and there in search of happiness and peace when it lies only within.
Now, how can one acquire knowledge and wisdom? Well, one can imbibe it through the continuous and regular self analysis and by constantly remaining in the company of learned but wise people. We must also continuously read scripture & contemplate to enhance our knowledge. This shall bring us enlightenment within. A society comprised of scholars always prospers and easily achieves its objectives.

While working, our objectives seem to be far away and difficult to achieve; even the benefits accrued from our labor seem to be much delayed. Many of us tend to forget that such hard earned benefits out of our labor will give be long lasting contentment. In the journey towards achieving our goal, certain shortcuts may sometimes come our way and attract us. But, we must stay determined on our chosen path in the wake of such deceptive temptations.
If we focus and concentrate on our objective then no hurdles shall be able to dissuade us. We shall become more and more convinced towards our choice. We would learn appropriate use of time and opportunities.
When we concentrate the heat of sun’s rays on one focal point they are capable of burning that point. Similarly, if we collect and concentrate our will power and energy on our aim we are sure to achieve success.

The Supreme Being wishes to make arrangements for the transformation of the Era. The greatest foresightedness of awakened souls amongst us is to come forward and extend their hand. In coming days, none will be able to have his own wealth. It is definite that the government (community) will be the owner of all money and property. Everyone will earn his bread diligently. One may note it down as a definite prophecy to happen. Future will prove this fact as true verbatim. I feel, I must request the thoughtful people of the present age insisting, not to waste time in the complications of raising  capital and hoarding property for their future generations. We have seen the end of kings and landlords in India and elsewhere with our own eyes, now these eyes must get ready to see the event of declaration of personal property as public.

Friends! The world is full of opportunities. But we are not able to benefit out of them. We can reap maximum benefits if we learn to mold ourselves to face the circumstances, we are passing through and prepare ourselves to avail the opportunities we see. A perfect co-ordination between the two leads to unmatched development of our character and disposition.
Here, what is primarily needed is, first a true and honest self analysis and then identifying the weaknesses. The final step is weeding out our weaknesses. After this we, each of us can reform ourselves and  and get a new rebirth with sound morals, principles and with a broad, modern and a flexible outlook.
We must also understand that to progress in life, planning is of utmost importance. Once a feasible strategy has been charted out, one must try to stick to it under any situation; eventually, success will follow. This implies that a person can elevate himself only by helping himself. Consequently the whole world will follow him.  The whole universe comes forward to help the person who is strong and determined towards his objectives.
