This Is A Special Age

by Dr. Stewart Bitkoff


Q: Spiritually many claim this is a special age. How or why is it special?

We live in an age when technologically, as a global community, we have the power to create a wondrous world or destroy ourselves. Are third world countries struggles and hunger to be ignored and only the industrialized society materially benefit? Or do we come together and share our collective wealth and potential? That is the challenge that faces humanity. Do the interests of some override the interests of many? What criteria or moral yardstick do we have to make decisions about this problem?

This is a special age. As a global community we have the capacity, for the most part, to eliminate hunger and disease. Also, in the west, 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? 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 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 spiritual capacity to know what is right. In part that is the goal of spiritual preparation. Authentic paths create individuals who are better able to serve themselves and others. Internally most travelers have the capacity 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 given up the search for them. These are the hidden teachers and our greatest natural resource.

Q: In this age, many are awaiting the return of the Great Teacher. Please speak to this prophecy.

It is a prophecy that the Great Teacher will return and again turn hearts upward in remembrance. As circumstance dictates, the Great Teacher will make public the Teaching. Always it is the same spiritual teaching that is updated into a modern form. At present the work and teaching occurs on a spiritual level.

The teaching is that the great religions and all people are One and spring from the same source. Mankind has forgotten to sip of this ancient river and experience the inner reality of God’s Love and Mercy through the Light.

We are all brothers and sisters and are most distant from our lasting spiritual nature when we forget to experience this reality. This is the eternal teaching and how to accomplish this is the inner mystery teaching of the great religions.

When the Light is experienced on a daily basis, this experience is integrating and makes us whole, better able to serve self and others.

Until the Great Teacher emerges, turn inward toward God, and ask to drink of God’s Love and Mercy. For in the spiritual realm, there is no time and distance and the teaching can be made manifest at any time or place.

The Prophecy

Traveler: Tell me of the Prophecy.

Master: It is written that much of what you see shall be destroyed and from the ashes he shall arise. The Dove shall be reborn.

Traveler: Why is this destruction necessary?

Master: For many years humanity has failed to follow the natural laws and like the babe who plays with a flame, the heat must be experienced. In the burning, the Lesson shall be taught.

As the fire cleanses, our hearts shall herald the new world’s birth.

Traveler: I am frightened; tell me of the new world and ease my fears.

Master: Mountains shall fall away; night shall bow to day; and each person shall awaken to the Name of God caressing their lips.

From the Dove’s nest, humanity shall be joined in the One Religion. And every traveler shall be cherished as part of the whole.

From the Creator’s Heart this wondrous dream shall become Reality, and you will experience it all.
