We’ve made our national pilgrimage to Gallipoli, scene of slaughter, carnage and courage; now, why not a national pilgrimage to our spiritual heartland, source of peace, love, inspiration and gentler living? People do not want war.  Reluctantly they go.  But, once committed, every nation does its utmost on the battlefield and on the civil front to ensure the ultimate objective – unconditional victory. Would that we could dedicate ourselves in like fashion towards a new objective – the realisation of the Divine in human nature and persist in this direction until this and the qualities it engenders, rules the human expression unchallenged. We would then discover that the peace we seek comes, not through force of arms and courage on the battlefield but through this beautiful blending of the human with the Divine nature.
