Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter III - Humanity Today - The World Situation
The New Group of World Servers is already a functioning active group. Every man and woman in every country in both [643] hemispheres, who is working to heal the breaches between people, to evoke the sense of brotherhood, to foster the sense of mutual interrelation, and who sees no racial, national or religious barriers, is a member of the New Group of World Servers, even if he has never heard of it in these terms.

The members of the New Group of World Servers belong to no party or religion and yet belong to all parties and religions; they assume no attitude or position either for or against any existing government, religion or social order. They engage in no political activity of any kind, and attack no existing order. They are neither for nor against a government or a Church, and spend no money, organize no campaign, and send out no literature which could be interpreted as attacking or defending any organization of a political, religious, social or economic nature. They say nothing and write no word which could feed the fires of hatred, or tend to separate man from man, or nation from nation. Yet these members will be found in every political party and every world religion. They represent an attitude of mind.

The members of the New Group of World Servers are not, however, a band of impractical mystics. They know exactly what they seek to do, and their plans are laid in such a manner that - without upsetting any existing situation - they are discovering and bringing together the men of good will all over the world. Their united demand is that these men of good will should stand together in complete understanding and thus constitute a slowly growing body of people whose interest is shown on behalf of humanity and not primarily on behalf of their own immediate environment. The larger interest will not, however, prevent them from being good citizens of the country where their destiny has cast them. They will conform to and accept the situation in which they find themselves, but will (in that situation and under that government [644] or religious order) work for good will, for the breaking down of barriers, and for world peace. They will avoid all attack of existing regimes and personalities; they will keep the laws of the land in which they have to live, but they will cultivate the spirit of non-hatred, utilizing every opportunity to emphasize the brotherhood of nations, the unity of faith, and our economic interdependence. They will endeavor to speak no word and do no act which can separate and breed dislike.

These are broad generalities, governing the conduct of the men of good will who seek to cooperate with the work being done by the New Group of World Servers. As they learn effective cooperation and achieve steadiness in the right attitudes to their fellow men, they are gradually absorbed into the ranks of the New Group, not through a process of formal affiliation, for no such process exists (there being no formal organization) but through the development of the necessary qualities and characteristics. It is of value to reiterate at this point that the New Group of World Servers is not an organization. It has no headquarters, but only units of service throughout the world; it has no president or lists of officers; it has only servers in every country, who are occupied simply with the task of discovering the men of good will. This is the immediate task. These men of good will must be found and trained in the doctrine of non-separateness, and educated in the principles of cooperation and the characteristics of the new social order, which is essentially a subjective realignment, resulting in pronounced changes brought about through the weight of a world opinion, based on a good will which knows no national or racial barriers or religious differences. Year by year there should develop much active work and much dissemination of the teachings upon universal good will, so that it changes from a beautiful sentiment and becomes the [645] practical application of good will by action in the affairs of every day life, in every country throughout the world.

In terms of Christian teaching, the citizens of the kingdom which Christ came to found must be discovered, and will be recognized by their spirit of synthesis, their inclusive point of view and their emphasis upon a world unity which is based upon our international synthesis (the recognition really of our human relations), our religious unity as children of the one Father, and our well known, though largely ignored, economic interdependence. The education of the men and women of good will will be in relation to the expression of a practical loving understanding. The New Group of World Servers will know who these citizens of the kingdom are and where they are to be found.

The next task to which the New Group of World Servers will consecrate their efforts will be to eliminate the fear in the world. This can be done and will take place when the men and women of good will awake to the fact of the wealth of good will there is in every land. There are millions of these men of good will in the world; they have been increasing steadily in numbers as a result of the agony of the world war, but, feeling isolated and alone, they have been impotent and futile. They have felt separated, useless and unimportant. As individuals, they are. As part of a great world movement, with a spiritual basis and expressive of the essential divinity in man, they are not. The massed power of good will, a thing which has remained hitherto unorganized, will be found to be irresistible. The work of the New Group of World Servers until May 1942 is to organize this latent power and bring it forth into expression by fostering it, by educational methods, and by indicating steadily the lines along which this potent spirit can manifest.
