Letter to Kenneth Browne, in part: "If everyone would look after the life within themselves with 'universal intelligence,' which is love, being kind to each other under any circumstance, then we would have no disease or wars. It's so simple that it is overlooked, that is the teachings of Jesus, but people have been away from that teaching for a long time time that it is sad, we only learn through punishment of some kind, I know as I have been there."
