A Special Age

by Stewart Bitkoff

Age Group: Adult


We live in age when technologically, as a global community, we have the power to create a wondrous world or destroy opurselves. Are third world country health struggles and hunger to be ignored and only the western industrialized society materially benefit? Or do we come together and share our collective wealth and potential? This is the challenge that faces humanity. Do the interests of some over ride the interests of many? What criteria or moral yardstick do we have to make decisions about these problems?

This is a special age. As a global community we have the capacity, for the most part, to eliminate hunger and disease. Also, we are examining spiritual experience, free of social censure, with scientific interest and wonder. Yet, where do we go from here? Do we have more of the same self-interest? Or does something higher emerge?

Today, many are turning toward non-traditional spiritual systems for individual answers and are seeking a balancing factor to personal interest, fear, and greed.

After a period of preparation, authentic spiritual teaching
provides the traveler, with an internal yardstick that helps balance the needs of the individual and many. This internal indicator is a spiritual capacity to know what is required. In part that is the goal of spiritual preparation and learning; knowing what to do in given situations. Authentic paths create individuals who are better able to serve themselves and others. Intuitively, travelers know what is needed to balance the spiritual and physical.

A better world is made one person at a time. Adding to other necessary preparations a period of spiritual learning, creates better people. People who have been freed of self-interest and the need to control others must teach this preparation. These people are present in each community; yet for the most part we have forgotten how to recognize and given up the search for them. These are the hidden teachers and our greatest resource.

Seek these teachers and follow their higher teachings; they are all around you. And gradually our world will change; beginning with you.
Dr. Stewart Bitkoff
