(spoken by Gillian Broadbent)
Every age has its revelations; every cycle its inspirations; every decade its innovations; every dispensation its message or call. The Call to the World today is Mazdaznan — the Master Thought. Ma means good or God; zda stands for thought, while znan, abbreviated from yaznan, means accomplished, masterly; in short, master of the good thought or the good thought that masters all things for good.
Mazdaznan sees in the universe intelligence; on the planet providence; in man possibilities that know no bounds. In man one sees the sum and substance of the creative energy; the polarity of evolutionary processes — the state of perfection. Whatever man appears to be — savage or civilized — matters not. The potentialities, properties, gifts, endowments, intelligences, attributes, powers, forces — all are in man; yet time alone reveals the hidden, occult, mystical and other powers in him, or through him. Inasmuch as all composers and their compositions are in an instrument, yet that instrument reveals it not until an intelligent hand manipulates it; even so in man all the intelligences hidden in his mortal frame, avail him not until he has learnt to manipulate the brain cells and set free the power that lies therein.
Mazdaznan comes as the Call to the World, reminding one and all of the limitlessness of man's possibilities. To fold the hands serenely and wait will not call out man's hidden powers and forces ; he must become active, not only in the pursuit of happiness, but to demonstrate and prove illimitability — perfection.
Whether considered from the evolutionary standpoint or that of Genesis, man is the sum and substance of the creative energy and evolutionary laws. In either case he is the crown of creation and necessarily embodies all the preceding operations. However undeveloped man may be he has within his being the latent power to adjust undesirable planetary influences and to overcome inherited tendencies, thus paving the way towards the realization of perfection.
Mazdaznan does not only encourage man to aim high, but proves deductively and conclusively that he is the incarnation of God and His attributes, destined to take up the work on earth where the Spirit of God left it to his care.
An Outline of the Mazdaznan Science of Daily Life is here presented to the student, the practical application of which will unfold true individuality — hidden talents and latent forces — ensuring health, happiness and success, which are the essential factors unto perfection.
