50 On creating changes in human civilization

Beloved Dmitry,

A mystery school can only change the world in the way that anyone can change the world: very very slowly and with great care.

Any real change, any lasting change, takes a great deal of time to bring into effect. It is the work of generations.

But slowly, over the millennia, humanity has been advancing, though there is great barbarity, great violence, the presence of mystery schools, and awakened masters leading them, is something that is slowly leading mankind as a whole to better states of consciousness.
However, the reaction of those who do not wish to advance in such a way becomes more and more violent as they feel more and more pressure.
That is why in this past century mankind has had some of its greatest achievements of awareness, and also its darkest moments of brutality.

But slowly, inevitably, life leads to awareness.
