Poisoned flour

As long as we keep baking with poisoned flour, the act of feeding humanity will not have the final, desired result.

What I mean to say is that we can go through all the right motions, but if our motives, and the spirit with which we act, still bears feelings and attitudes of prejudice, a sense of superiority, a tendency to be exclusive, etc., then the society that results from those efforts will continue to have the ills of the Old World embedded within it, and thus it will not be — cannot be! — the future envisioned for us by Bahá’u’lláh.
