Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter III - Humanity Today - The Great Approaches
This is a matter of practical import and is not at all an easy thing to attain. It lays the foundation for the rapid formation and definite emergencies of the New-Group of World Servers, and for the discovery and organizing of the men of goodwill throughout the world, wherever they may be found. The spiritual Hierarchy cannot work through people whose tongues are critical, whose ideas and attitudes are separative and who are violently partisan in their beliefs and comments. This is a statement of fact. I seek to have you train yourselves in such right activity, beginning with your own lives and your personal expression in the world.

As regards the required united work, I can but indicate the following lines of activity, and it is for you to follow them, if you will, or make it possible for others to do so:

  1. Discover the men and women of good will. These you will not recognize if you are full of racial, national or religious prejudice.
  2. Put these people in touch with the Units of Service in the countries where they live. [749]
  3. Educate them in the following ideas:
    1. The principles of good will and the medium and methods of their true expression in the daily life.
    2. The necessity of their being active and practical and consistent workers in the spread of good will in the world.
    3. The usefulness of building up live mailing lists (I think you call it) of those who see life from the angle of the spiritual values and who seek to build for the future.
  4. The authorities of any and every nation should be kept in touch with your activities, so that they are aware of all that you are seeking to do and can, therefore, realize that there is nothing subversive in the planned activities, and nothing that has in it the seeds of trouble for any ruler or national government.
  5. Keep constantly in touch with the Units of Service and use care in choosing those who represent the work you have all undertaken.
  6. Let the meditation groups be carefully handled and have about them nothing that could be regarded as secret or might bring them under suspicion of being secret organizations. This they are not. This non-secrecy must be emphasized in connection with all the work.
  7. As far as the use of the press and the radio is concerned, go forward as actively and earnestly as possible in preparation for the work planned in 1942 and its great united effort. Upon these two lay the emphasis, for by them the majority of human beings are reached.
  8. Let each Wesak Full Moon be a period of intensive effort, preceded by personal preparation and purification and lay the force of the emphasis upon: [750]
    1. The producing of sensitivity to the inner spiritual impression, emanating from the Hierarchy and the Group.
    2. The achieving of an intelligent appreciation of the steps to be taken during the coming twelve months, and the laying of careful plans so that they may indeed materialize.
    3. The correct distribution of your time and resources so that you do become an active worker in the cause of good will.
    4. The effort to cooperate with all that is being done along these lines, which entails the discovery of all groups and persons working with similar objectives.
    5. The submergence of your temporary interests in the good of the whole and through love of humanity.

I will say no more at this time. I have sought to indicate that which should be possible. If my suggestions are followed, and if the work is carried forward diligently, there is every indication that the work of the Hierarchy and of the Christ will be tremendously expedited. The need and the opportunity call for right understanding, and they demand also a joyful cooperation and the sacrifice of yourselves and of your time and money, in the attempt to make our work possible.

I make no further appeal for your help. I have been endeavoring to educate you in the new ideals and in the work of the New Group of World Servers. The responsibility for right action and for the effort to reach the public rests upon the aspirants and disciples of the world who read my words. There is nothing that I, personally, can do. It is your time (and all of you, without exception, can give some) for which Christ and humanity are today calling. It is your activity and skill in reaching those you can reach for which we make [751] demand. It is your money that is needed to enable us to reach the interested public. It is your meditation and intense inner cooperation which will construct that channel through which the spirit of peace can work and the forces of Light enter. The Hierarchy waits. It has done all that is possible from the angle of Its opportunity. The Christ stands in patient silence, attentive to the effort that will make His work materialize on earth and enable Him to consummate the effort He made 2000 years ago in Palestine. The Buddha hovers over the planet, ready to play His part if the opportunity is offered to Him by mankind. I beg you to note what I here have said. Everything now depends upon the right action of the men of good will.
