Thanks for your wise response.
Looking back to all the world's great religions, we can see everyone of them
tried to send the same fundamental message in the hope of making human being
change. The messages of Great Teachers have always been very simple and
straightforward. Don't Kill. Don't lie etc.
>From a practical standpoint, even if a new Messenger were to come today, I
doubt that the fundamental message is going to be very different. This is
because I don't think that most of us are yet to fully implement such simple
principles like Don't Kill, Don't Lie etc in their fullest and complete
form. So if we are all waiting for some "miraculous" or occult message, we
may be in for disappointment. That does not mean that the same simple
message may be presented in a totally different way to catch the attention
so that masses will slowly implement them in their lives, thus not only
transforming themselves, but transforming everyone with whom they come into
contact. I am not going to go into the "occult" side because I simply do not
know much. Whether a new occult dispensation is going to be made available,
we have to wait and see with an open mind.
