Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter III - Humanity Today - The Great Approaches
It is for this "Day of Crisis" that we are called to work. It can be brought about in 1942; if all of us put ourselves and all our resources - spiritual, mental and material - into the meeting of the present opportunity and emergency. It can be brought about if the New Group of World Servers and the massed men and women of good will in every land use intelligence, plus good business technique and methods (which are spiritual faculties; not dedicated, as yet, on a large scale to the things of the kingdom of God). Practical utilization of every possible agency - the press, correspondence, personal contacts and above all the radio - the avoidance of all the old methods such as attack on persons, peoples, nations and ideologies of force and coercion and of separative techniques must be strenuously inculcated. The forces existent today, directed by the spiritual agencies of the incoming New Age, have made the field of service clear. It is the bridging of the separative cleavages, and the harmonizing of the warring schools of thought.

The workers on the inner side and the disciples who are responsible for the working out of the Plan have made great efforts to reach and stimulate the New Group of World Servers. They have been successful. Such success is in no way dependent upon any recognition of the Hierarchy on the part of the Servers. Where that exists it is a help, but it is dependent upon receptivity to spiritual impression, which means responsiveness to the new ideas which are expressive of the spirit of fusion, of synthesis, of understanding, and of cooperative good will. Look out for such people and work with them. Do not hold the prevalent attitude that they must work with you. It is for us, who perhaps know a little bit [747] more about the Plan than they do, to do the moving forward. It is for us to evidence intelligent understanding and to set the needed example by submerging our own ideas and personal desires in the good of the whole.

There must be on our part, if we react to all this, the reorientation of our entire lives for the next few years, to the urgency of the things to be done. This will necessarily involve the readjustment of our lives to the new impulses; it will entail the elimination of the non-essentials so that we can find time for the task; it will mean the cultivation of that spiritual sensitivity which will render us aware of the impressions and impulses coming from the inner side of life, and will make us quick also to recognize our brothers who are pledged to the same life of good will and who are awake - as we are - to the urgency of human need, and the immediacy of the day of opportunity; it will require the development in all of the spirit of silence, for silence is the best method whereby spiritual force is both generated and stored for use, and it will bring about the training of ourselves to see clearly the issues involved in any situation (personal, national or international) and then enable us to bring to bear upon it the interpretative light of expressed good will.

For the members of the New Group of World Servers and for the men and women of good will, the Hierarchy of spiritual Leaders have laid down the following rules:

  1. That they must aim at achieving peaceful relationships with, and harmonious acquiescence in, as well as cooperation with the government or state to which they owe allegiance or loyalty. This does not mean endorsing all policies and lines of activity undertaken by such governments but it does mean the refraining from all that could cause difficulty. There is always scope for much [748] constructive activity within any governmental policy or regime and it is to these constructive and peaceful enterprises that the servers of the Great Ones and of humanity will direct their attention.
  2. They must refrain from all interference in the affairs of any political or religious group.
  3. They must endeavor to express practical good will in the environment where their lot may be cast.
  4. They must strive after harmlessness in speech and in life in relation to their family, community, nation or group of nations. This means a consistent policy of non-attack. No leader or nation or race must be attacked or defamed.
