The force of change has moved us away
from traditional values that have, in the past,
given meaning to human life
and provided the vehicle for innter development.

The resulting spiritual vacuum
has left many people confused and dazed,
with little inspiration to explore their inner nature.

Some people respond by denying the validity
of inner values all together.

Others react by clinging fiercely
to a belief system or a charismatic figure.

Both these responses buy only temporary assurance
at the expense of a genuine search for inner truth.
