2011 OPENING SPEECH
steemed Guests, Dear Friends; Tonight we are Celebrating the 17th Anniversary of the Panel “Call to World Peace from the Universal Brotherhood” which we have been Taking into effect and Celebrating Every year on November 1, since 1995. For this reason I would like to say to All Our Universal Friends who have come from all around the World and Honored us: Welcome, you have brought us Happiness. Tonight I would like to speak a little about Universality. What is Universality? As a matter of fact, Universality is a phenomenon that varies in accordance with each person’s Consciousness. However, according to our understanding Universality means to attain the Consciousness of the Whole, to possess Global and Flexible Thinking. A Genuine Universal Person is the one who sees and embraces Everything as a Whole with Himself/Herself. In Islamic Mysticism, Being Universal means to be the same on the inside as on the outside, for a Human Being to be at Peace with Himself/Herself, to be versed in Modesty, Tolerance, Patience, to have Appropriated to oneself the Philosophy of “Loving Creation for the sake of the Creator”. The Essential element here is the Human Being. While all Sacred Books have invited Humanity to Unity, Totality, Peace and Brotherhood they have at the same time also taken into effect an Evolution Program. For, Evolution is the sole phenomenon that enables the Human Being to attain Cognizance and Consciousness. The negative Tableaus our Planet is experiencing in this Last Age are factors that will lead Humanity on to perfection, by instigating him to Cognizance and Thought. For, perfection is always Born out of Chaos. Henceforth, we all know that our World is a school of Test. If a person experiences the reasons for what he/she lives through Consciously, he/will experience his/her World with more happiness. We, as the Association of the World Brotherhood Union, have been endeavoring for 50 years with our Friends who share the same view throughout the Whole World to explain the Truth to our Other Friends in the World and to reflect Love, Peace, Friendship, Brotherhood and positive views to them. Events and Studies such as These are taken into effect due to This Factor. Our Association and Foundation which were Officially Established in the year 1993 has now Begun to make Preparations for the Establishment of World Brotherhood Union Branches in many countries. The First World Brotherhood Association will be Established by our Spanish Friends in Madrid. Operations to this end are underway. The World Human Being is henceforth no longer the Human Being before the year 2000. Time has enabled everyone to Attain Consciousness and many Sectors of our Planet are presently treading towards the Morrows with the Consciousness of what needs to be done. The authentic Speeches that will be Delivered by our Esteemed Panelists tonight will Shed Great Light to Us on the Path we tread. We are grateful and indebted to them. Hoping you will have a Wonderful evening, I embrace You All with All my Love.
