You look upon the covers of your magazines in a store and feel discouragement. So many are drawn to pictures of weapons or to improving exterior appearances. So few seem drawn to things of the Spirit. “Where are the magazines touting love and charity?” The consciousness of humanity as a whole has not risen sufficiently to create a reality in which interest in Truth supersedes the gifts of instant gratification of the flesh and mortal mind.

Does this mean that you should surrender your efforts to help to raise the consciousness of those around you? Far from it. Soldier on. Radiate love at all times, even to those who seem most closed off from their Spirit-nature. You do not realize the full impact of your love at this time, but that does not mean that you should stop loving. Work only on raising your own consciousness. In so doing, you are building up the whole, for all is One.
