Wars can stop only when we stop making them.

The Four Freedoms

Mankind has a great new lesson to learn which is that Nature only gives for re-giving. That is the secret of Natures continuance... Wars can stop only then we stop making them and we shall stop making them only then we learn the great lesson of the unity of man and the fact that other men are not only brothers but are actually ourselves. When we learn that lesson, we will know that we cannot hurt any other man without hurting ourselves in the same measure.

You, as an individual, can stop all wars by stopping them in your home, your town and your whole sphere of influence. Unity begins in the home, then reaches out to your neighbourhood. If every man in the world who desires prosperity, happiness and peace gives love out from himself to his home and his neighbourhood, there would be no more wars, for war is the harvest of hate and fear while happiness and peace are the fruits of love.

(The Dawn of a New Day in Human Relations, Address by Walter Russell, May 19, 1951)


His whole life long, Walter Russell made his opinion about peace very clear. The text above is his wording in a speech, he addressed to high ranking military personnel at the Armed Forces Day Celebration on May 19, 1951 his 80th birthday.


Man has free right to choose his own actions, but he must balance those actions with equal and opposite reactions until he learns that Gods one law must be obeyed. This God holds inviolate.

The whole purpose of life is to learn how to manifest God in Truth and the Law. The lesson is a hard one but man, himself, makes it hard by his unknowing of the law. As man gradually knows his purpose and the law by knowing God in him, life becomes more and more beautiful, and man more powerful in his manifestation of power.
Mans power lies in giving. He must learn to give as Nature gives. Each half of a cycle eternally gives to the other half for re-giving. Nature forever unfolds into many for the purpose of refolding into one. Each individual must manifest this universal law.

The desire of some so-called apron string parents to run their childrens lives for them, often claiming that they have sacrificed their very own lives for them, are taking from their children not giving. They are taking away the initiative children need to complete their own cycles: they must live their own lives for themselves.

Man must know the principle of Creation: giving between each interchanging opposite half of each cycle for the purpose of repeating its giving. This is universal law and each individual must manifest this law.
Man will forever war with man until he learns to give his all with the full expectation of equal receiving, and never taking that which is not given as an earned reward for his giving.

(Walter Russell, The Secret of Light, pp 109-110)
