Answer: First, we have to understand that we are managed by the upper force, by the thought of creation, and by that we can use the Light that Reforms in order to save ourselves and to win. But how should we win?
This whole war is not in order to defeat some hostile terrorist organization but in order to defeat the concealment that is all over the world.
We must remove it, at least to some extent, and then we will see what world we are living in, what is happening to us, to all of the created beings, and what the upper force wants of us. By the way, this is not contrary to the Islamic perspective at all. It requires explanation and nothing more.
War is a conflict between two opinions. The essence of this war is that every side wants to win by using its ego. But we should understand that today there is no room for this kind of war. This war has become something else: We are required to remove the concealment. We are sent an obstacle that forces us to think that we are seemingly fighting terrorists over some territory, some domination, or some political ideology.
But, in fact, it is a totally different battle that takes place only so that by this situation we will be able realize that it is the upper force that puts us in these acute situations so that we will be able to reveal it.
We can only reveal it by massive dissemination of the message that everything comes from this force in order to reveal it and reach equivalence of form with it. It is because this equivalence of form is the means to reveal it.
Equivalence of form with the upper force requires us to fulfill the condition of love thy friend as thyself and to turn one’s enemy into one’s lover, which means to turn the enemies into friends and the external enemies into internal ones.
