Instead of altering his vision man wants to change creation

Thoughts and feelings determine what you are. Change your thoughts. If you give up your worldly outlook and view the world from the spiritual point of view, the Vishvam (world) and the Vishnu (Divine) will become one. Therefore, change your viewpoint.

Instead of altering his dhrishti (vision) man wants to change Shrishti (creation). No one can change creation. It is one's vision that has to be changed.

-Sai Baba

A great future awaits humanity

According to the Teaching, a great future awaits humanity. The "Captain" of the "ship" is alert and able, and conditions will gradually improve. Though many are suffering and will continue to suffer, the future of humanity is bright.

Many agents of darkness and their servants try to convince humanity that the end of the world is near, that humanity will never learn cooperation, that peace will never come, that greater suffering, pain and starvation are on the way.

The agents of darkness never give us a bright picture, and by spreading such pessimistic, negative thoughtforms, they pressure humanity to think and act along the lines of destruction, death, suffering and pain.

Once the gears of the human mind are engaged in such negative, ugly, destructive thoughts, humanity will be forced to live in such a way that it will fall into danger in trying to actualize the prophecies of the agents of darkness.

At the present we need leaders who will bring us hope, optimism, and joy; tell us that the future will be bright; tell us that the human soul is alive and sound; tell us that humanity will pass the crises and will build greater future. In spreading such a vision we will condition the thinking of humanity and lead it into positive lines - "Whatever man thinks in his heart, so is he."

Give vision to people and people will actualize the vision.
