Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter III - Humanity Today - The World Situation
The New Group of World Servers should therefore [646] organize for itself a program covering this period, under the direction of Those who watch, on the inner, spiritual side of life. This program must have three objectives:

1. To discover, educate and blend together the men of good will, demonstrating to them the fact that in every country in the world, without exception, much is being done along the lines of

  1. International understanding and the brotherhood of nations.
  2. The betterment of human conditions by groups, churches and organizations, working along the new lines, without hatred, eliminating attack on groups or persons and the expressing of a partisan spirit,
  3. Religious unity and spiritual unfoldment within and without the churches,
  4. Educational activity, carried forward along lines of non-separativeness and broad inclusiveness.
    This can be done through the instrumentality of a new magazine which will be the organ of the men of good will.

2. To prepare the men of good will for a repetition upon a far larger scale of the "act of appeal" which took place on May 6th, 1936. Then the Great Invocation was used by millions, and of its effectiveness there can be no doubt. It greatly strengthened the hands of the Hierarchy and established a "channel of contact" which can never again be broken. Greater similar efforts can be launched during the next few years and they will embody the next great spiritual effort and expression of the men of good will for which the intermediate period is a preparation. It is desirable that there should be, if possible, a far [647] wider use of the radio, so that sequentially and following the journey of the sun, there may go forth over the air this appeal to God at the time of the full moon. The day of appeal will be the expression of the spiritual attitude of humanity and will lead to a subjective spiritual synthesis between the men of good will and the New Group of World Servers and the inner spiritual Hierarchy which is working to bring about the manifestation of the new order on earth, to inaugurate the New Age, and to materialize the kingdom of God on the physical plane.

To this future day of appeal or world prayer much thought and preparation should be given, so that the results achieved can be even more definite and potent than in the first quite successful attempt. Prayer or appeal is either a potent way of setting certain great forces in motion or it is not. The testimony of the ages is in favor of its efficacy along these lines.

3. To hold before humanity, as part of the living instruction which the men of good will will teach and live out in their daily lives, the necessity of a great group participation in a Day of Forgiveness and of Forgetting. This may be possible in a few years' time, but could be effectively tried in 1942. This is a forgiveness which is based upon a recognition of the universality of human error in the past, and the fact that there is no blame to be apportioned to this or that group, nation or church, but that we have all made mistakes, have all failed to understand, and have all been guilty of lack of love and of tolerance. It is not, therefore, a forgiveness which is based on a spirit of magnanimity or a sense of expediency or superiority, but upon a desire to forget the past, and to push [648] forward into the New Age and participate in the new social order, free from the ancient hatreds, relinquishing the memory of the old mistakes in policy, judgment and method, and ignoring the habitual barriers and our normal separative instincts.

This is the triple program to which the New Group of World Servers is pledged and in which we are urged to participate. To this endeavor they will in their turn call the men of good will. They have no other program or intention.

Loosely knit together by mutual understanding and similarity of objective, the members of the New Group of World Servers stand, whether they are conscious or unconscious of each other or the group, as it is here described. In every country they are found and actively are working. Through them the men of good will are being discovered. Their names and addresses are being noted and collected into mailing lists. Their capacity, whatever it may be, to serve their fellow men, will be also noted when possible and utilized, if desired. Thus through the men of good will everywhere, the principle of good will can be nurtured and developed in every country, and eventually turned to practical use. These people will constitute a new body of practical thinkers in every nation, who will be no menace to any government, nor will they work against the established order. They will throw themselves into those movements and undertake those activities which can in no way foster hatred, spread enmity, or cause division among their fellow men. To this group, no government or church can object.

Danger lies in laying down rules and in making forecasts. These will only lead to premature activity and hasty procedure. If the work which is outlined here proceeds along the desired lines; if, through daily use of the Great Invocation: [649]

Let the Forces of Light bring illumination to mankind
Let the Spirit of Peace be spread abroad
May men of good will everywhere meet in a spirit of cooperation
May forgiveness on the part of all men be the keynote at this time
Let power attend the efforts of the Great Ones
So let it be, and help us to do our part

the channel is widened and firmly established, and a day of prayer is duly organized; if the daily recognition of forgiveness in the sense in which St. Paul wrote when he said "Forgetting the things which are behind, press forward," becomes the rule among the men of good will, leading eventually to a worldwide day of forgiveness, then the task of the New Group of World Servers will go forward along constructive and fruitful lines, and will lead to success. Those Who seek to lead and guide on the inner side will also have reason to go forward with increased confidence, and the Christ will see the fruits "of the travail of His soul and be satisfied."

Having thus the program for this immediate period outlined before us, what are we going to do about it? This program cannot succeed nor can this middle party in the world - intermediate between the partisans and the groups pro and con in world affairs - come to fruition and constructive activity without each one realizing the need, and bending anew every effort - individual, financial and spiritual - to the helping of the Plan.
