|These tendencies, based on fear have (because man is
divine) acted as a tremendous stimulation of his entire nature, and have carried him
forward to his present point  of wide comprehension and usefulness; they have
produced our modern civilization with all its defects and yet with all its indicated
divinity. Out of these instincts carried forward into infinity, and out of the process of
their transmutation into their higher correspondences the full flower of soul expression
will emerge. I would like to point out the following:
- The instinct
of self-preservation finds its consummation in assured immortality, and of this the work
undertaken by the spiritualists and psychic investigators right down the ages is the mode
of approach and the inevitable guarantee.
- The sex
instinct has worked out and finds its logical consummation in the relationship -
consciously realized - of the soul and the body. This is the keynote of mysticism and
religion, which is today, as ever, the expression of the Law of Attraction, not as it
expresses itself through physical plane marriage, but as it finds its consummation (for
man) in the sublime marriage carried forward with conscious intent between the positive
soul and the negative and receptive form.
- The herd
instinct finds its divine consummation in an awakened group consciousness, which is
evidenced today in the general tendency towards amalgamations, and the widespread fusing
and blending which are going on everywhere. It demonstrates in the ability to think in
terms of internationalism, of universal concepts, which will eventually result in the
establishing of universal brotherhood.
- The instinct
of self-assertion, in its turn, has given to our modern civilization its intense
individualism, the cult of the personality, and the production of ancestor and
hero-worship. It is leading, however, to the assertion of the Self, of the divine inner
Ruler, and out of our newest science, psychology, will emerge a knowledge of the assertive
and dominant spiritual Self, and lead  finally to the manifestation of the kingdom of
souls on earth.
- And what of
the instinct to enquire? Transmuted into divine investigation and transformed by the
application of the light of the soul in the realm of enquiry, we shall have humanity
carried forward into the Hall of Wisdom and thus man will leave behind the experiences of
the Hall of Knowledge. Our great educational centers will become schools for the
development of intuitive perception and of spiritual awareness.
