THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE

IF A GROUP OF PEOPLE WERE ASKED, ‘WHAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE FOR MANKIND TODAY?’ DIFFERENT PEOPLE WOULD HAVE DIFFERENT ANSWERS. SOME WOULD SAY THAT THE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE. SOME WOULD SAY POPULATION EXPLOSION, WHILE OTHERS MIGHT SAY THAT THE PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH WERE OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE. SUCH DIVERSITY OF OPINIONS SHOWS THAT PEOPLE IN GENERAL DO NOT PROPERLY RECOGNIZE THEMSELVES. IF THEY DID, THEY WOULD ALL AGREE THAT THE MOST CRITICAL ISSUE FACING MANKIND WAS MAN’S DISREGARD OF THE REALITY OF HIS EXISTENCE.

MAN PERSISTS IN IGNORING THE INESCAPABLE FACT THAT ONE DAY HE MUST DIE AND BE CALLED TO ACCOUNT BEFORE HIS MAKER. IF HE WERE TO BECOME AWARE OF THE REALITY OF HIS EXISTENCE, IT WOULD BE TO THE AFTERLIFE RATHER THAN TO THIS WORLD THAT HE WOULD DIRECT HIS ATTENTION. IF YOU STAND AT A BUSY CROSSROADS DURING THE EVENING RUSH-HOUR AND OBSERVE WHAT PEOPLE ARE HURRYING TOWARDS, YOU WILL REALIZE WHAT TODAY’S HUMAN-BEING HAS CHOSEN AS HIS FUNDAMENTAL ISSUE. WHY DO YOU THINK THERE IS AN ENDLESS STREAM OF TRAFFIC IN THE STREETS? WHY HAS THE MERCHANT DECORATED HIS SHOP? WHERE ARE THE CROWDS OF PEOPLE COMING FROM AND GOING TO? WHAT IS THE MAIN TOPIC OF PEOPLE’S CONVERSATION AND THE TRUE PURPOSE OF THEIR MEETING ONE ANOTHER? WHAT INTERESTED THEM THE MOST? TO WHAT USE ARE THEIR FINEST TALENTS AND RESOURCES PUT? WHAT HAVE PEOPLE TAKEN WITH THEM; FROM THEIR HOMES, AND  WHAT DO THEY INTEND TO RETURN WITH? IF YOU CAN ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS, YOU WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO DEDUCE EXACTLY WHAT IT IS THAT MANKIND HAS CHOSEN TO BASE HIS LIFE ON AND WHAT HE IS ENDEVOURING TO ACHIEVE.

IT IS PLAIN FOR ALL TO SEE THAT TODAY’S HUMAN BEING IS SIMPLY RUNNING AFTER THE SATISFACTION OF HIS OWN DESIRES. IT IS THE WORLD RATHER THAN THE AFTERLIFE THAT HE IS EAGER TO OBTAIN. HIS HAPPINESS HINGES ON THE FULFILLMENT OF HIS WORLDLY AMBITIONS, WHILE IS GRIEF STEMS FROM THE FACT THAT THIS SEEMINGLY ELUDES HIM. THE EVERYDAY CONCEPT OF SUCCESS IS THE IMMEDIATE ACQUISITION OF COMMODITIES, THE ENJOYMENT OF LEISURE AND POPULAR ACCLAIM; WHILE FAILURE, TO HIM MEANS TO BE DEPRIVED OF THESE THINGS. THIS IS WHAT THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY IS CHASING. NO ONE CARES ABOUT TOMORROW; EVERYONE BECOMES FRANTIC ABOUT GETTING HIS SHARES NOW, TODAY, THIS VERY MINUTE.


THIS STATE OF AFFAIRS IS PREVALENT NOT ONLY IN OUR BIG CITIES BUT EVEN IN THE TINIEST HUMAN SETTLEMENTS; WHEREVER ONE GOES, PEOPLE SEEM TO BE SIMILARLY OBSESSED. MALE AND FEMALE, RICH AND POOR, OLD AND YOUNG, URBANE AND RUSTIC, EVEN THE RELIGIOUS AND IRRELIGIOUS – ALL ARE RUNNING IN THIS SAME DIRECTION. MAN IS EVEN READY TO SACRIFICE HIS FAITH AND HIS CONSCIENCE FOR THEM AT THE ALTAR OF WORLDLY GAIN. HIS STRUGGLE IS FOR WORLDLY ENDS ALONE, AND HE CARES NOT WHAT HIS STRUGGLE ENTAILS. EVERY SUCCESS GAINED IN THIS WAY, HOWEVER, IS TRIVIAL AND MUNDANE AND WILL BE OF NO AVAIL IN THE AFTERLIFE. HE WHO IS CONCERNED WITH THE CONSOLIDATION OF HIS WORLDLY POSITION AT THE EXPENSE OF AFTERLIFE IS LIKE THE YOUNG MAN WHO DOES NOT CARE TO SAVE UP FOR HIS OLD AGE. EVENTUALLY THE TIME COMES WHEN HIS LIMBS FAIL HIM AND HE BECOMES UNFIT FOR FURTHER TOIL. SUDDENLY HE REALIZE HIS PREDICAMENT: HE IS NO LONGER ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR HIMSELF.THE SAME APPLIES TO OUR AFTERLIFE. ALL OF US ARE TOO CONCERNED WITH THE CONSOLIDATION OF OUR PRESENT POSITIONS. NO ONE GIVES A THOUGHT TO TOMORROW. THOUGH WE WITNESS WITH OUR OWN EYES THE DEATH OF PEOPLE ALL AROUND US, WE ARE STILL NOT GALVANIZED INTO ACTION. WHEN THE AIR-RAID SIREN SOUNDS IN WARTIME AND PROCLAIMS IN ITS CHILLING WAIL: ‘SQUADRONS OF ENEMY BOMBERS ARE APPROACHING TO BLAST THIS CITY TO ETERNITY. TO THE AIR-RAID SHELTERS AT ONCE!’ EVERYONE IMMEDIATELY TAKES THE QUICKEST ROUTE TO THE SHELTERS AND IN AN INSTANT, THE BUSIEST OF STREETS ARE DESERTED. ANYONE WHO DOES NOT REACT IN THIS MANNER IS CONSIDERED INSANE. THERE IS ANOTHER DANGER, HOWEVER , EVEN MORE TERRIBLE AND INEVITABLE, CONCERNING WHICH THE LORD OF THE WORLDS HAS GIVEN US DUE WARNING, WHICH WE DO NOT EVEN GIVE A SECOND THOUGHT TO. WHAT IS THIS WARNING? IT IS THE WARNING OF THE LORD OF THE WORLDS. HE PROCLAIMS HIS IMPERATIVES THROUGH HIS PROPHETS TO MANKIND, ‘WORSHIP ME, FULFILL YOUR OBLIGATIONS TO ONE ANOTHER LIVE IN ACCORDANCE WITH MY WILL. I WILL PUNISH THOSE WHO FAIL TO DO THIS IN A WAY THAT CANNOT BE IMAGINED. ‘ALTHOUGH, EVERY EAR HAS HEARD THIS DECLARATION AND EVERY TONGUE ACKNOWLEDGES IT IN ONE FORM OR OTHER, BUT THE GENERAL ATTITUDE IS TO TREAT IT AS A MATTER OF ‘NO CONSEQUENCE.’ IN ORDER TO AVAIL THEMSELVES OF WORLDLY ADVANTAGES, PEOPLE PERPETRATE EVERY FORM OF MISDEMEANOUR. HOWEVER WHEN IT COMES TO THE ADVANTAGES OF THE AFTERLIFE, THEY ARE NOT CONCERNED ENOUGH TO TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION. IN THIS WAY, LIFE’S CARAVAN PROCEEDS HEEDLESSLY TOWARDS A POINT OF NO RETURN. PEOPLE START IN RESPONSE TO THE SIREN SCREECHING OUT FROM THE MILITARY HEADQUARTERS, BUT NO IMPORTANCE IS ATTACHED TO THE DANGER SIGNAL THAT THE LORD OF THE UNIVERSE HAS GIVEN OUT FOR MANKIND. FAR FROM HASTENING AT THE SOUND OF IT, NO ONE EVEN ALTER HIS PACE.
