Discipleship in the New Age I - Summary of the Tibetan's Work
Another phase of my work came into existence about ten years ago when I started to write certain pamphlets for the general public, calling attention to the world situation and to the New Group of World Servers. I thus endeavored to anchor on earth (if I may use such a phrase) an externalization or a symbol of the work of the Hierarchy. It was an effort to band together subjectively and (where possible) objectively all those people of spiritual purpose and deep love of humanity who were actively working in many countries, either in organizations or alone. Their name is legion. Some few are known to the workers in the school. Thousands are known to me but not to them; all are working under the inspiration of the Hierarchy and are, either consciously or unconsciously, fulfiling the duties of agents of the Masters. Together they form a band, closely knit on the inner side by spiritual intention and love. Some are occultists, working in the various occult groups; some are mystics, working with vision and love; others belong to the orthodox religions and some recognize no spiritual affiliations, so-called, at all. All are, however, animated by a sense of responsibility for human welfare and have interiorly pledged themselves to help their fellowmen. This great group constitutes the World Savior at this time and will salvage the world and inaugurate the new era after the war. The pamphlets which I wrote (the first of which was called The Next Three Years) indicated their plans and purposes, and made suggestions as to modes and methods of cooperation with this group of World Servers, already in existence and active in many fields.

Those whom the New Group of World Servers influence and with whom they seek to work and who can act as their agents, we call the men and women of goodwill. I made an effort to reach these people in 1936 when there was a faint possibility that the war even at that late hour might be averted. Many will remember that campaign and its relative success. Millions were reached by means of the spoken and written word and by the radio but there were not enough people, spiritually interested, to take the needed steps to stem the tide of hate, evil and aggression which threatened to engulf the world. The war broke out in 1939 in spite of all the efforts of the Hierarchy [784] and their workers, and the goodwill work fell naturally into abeyance. That part of the work in which members of the Arcane School had sought to serve and which had resulted in the forming of nineteen centers for service in as many countries had temporarily to be dropped - but only temporarily, my brothers, for goodwill is the "saving force" and an expression of the will-to-good which animates the New Group of World Servers.

I would emphasize that this work of anchoring the New Group of World Servers and organizing the goodwill work has nothing whatsoever to do with the school except in so far that members in the school were given the opportunity to help in the movement. They were left entirely free to do so or not as they chose; a very large percentage ignored the effort altogether, thus demonstrating the freedom which they felt and had been taught.
