Session 19 - Every Person's Perfect Expression

×

Everything depends on the environment. Our only problem is determining how to set up such a diverse environment—an environment that is uniform for all people and suitable for everyone, so that anyone can acquire education through it, express oneself in the best, most appropriate way, and be connected to others in the integral system.


The purpose of the society is to bring everyone to unity, for in that unity, everyone will find his or her perfect expression.
