In urban areas, one of the most precious things—and often one of the rarest—is housing. Many people living in urban areas around the world don’t have access to safe housing. Overpriced housing is a factor, which can contribute to homelessness. Rapidly growing cities such as Mexico City, Tokyo, Johannesburg, and Shanghai have scarcely an empty nook, and in cities such as London, Berlin, and San Francisco, prices for housing have soared in the last decade.
There is no way to gloss over these issues. They take tremendous compassion, collective effort, and a real commitment to improving living conditions for everyone on our beautiful planet. But there is one answer already here that is affordable, accessible, and authentic right now, and this answer is that there is always an answer—a way.
This might sound presumptuous, but it isn’t. We can become intimately acquainted with the Principle of life immortal, which is God. In doing so, we can authoritatively deal with the claims of a mortal sense of life and their tendency to materialize everything from A to Z.
