Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter III - Humanity Today - The New Group of World Servers
Out of this condition, how shall order be restored? How can the economic situation be stabilized, and the world be brought to a condition where there is a just and right sufficiency for all? How can national differences be healed and racial hatreds be ended? How can the many religious groups pursue their work of leading men to an expression of their divinity along the lines of individual heritage, and yet at the same time exist in harmony and present a united front to the world? How can wars be ended and peace be brought about on earth? How can a true prosperity be established, which shall be the result of unity, peace and plenty?

Only in one way. By the united action of the men and women of good will and understanding in every country and in every nation. Steadily and quietly, with no sense of hurry, must they do three things:

  • First, they must discover each other and be in touch with each other. Thus the sense of weakness and of futility will be offset. This is the first duty and task of the New Group of World Servers.
  • Secondly, they must clarify and elucidate those basic principles of right living, good will and harmony, which are recognized, but not applied, by all right thinking [673] people today. These principles must be formulated in the simplest terms and made practical in action.
  • Thirdly, the general public must be educated in these principles. Steadily, regularly and systematically, they must be taught the principles of brotherhood, of an internationalism which is based on good will and love of all men, of religious unity, and of cooperative interdependence. The individual in every nation and group must be taught to play his important part with good will and understanding; the group must shoulder its responsibility to other groups; and the responsibility of nation to nation and of all nations to the world of nations must be explained and emphasized.

This is no idle or mystical, impractical program. It undermines and attacks no authority or government. It is not interested in the overthrow of rulers or the downfall of any political or national party. It calls for intelligent and practical effort. It will call for the cooperation of many types of mind and many trained executives. The men of good will in every country must be discovered, and all who respond to these ideals must be gathered together through mailing lists. Their cooperation must be sought and systematized. This program will call, eventually, for the assistance of many lecturers and writers, who will work along the same idealistic lines but with differing methods. Through their knowledge of their own country, and of the best way to bring these basic truths home to their own nationals, they must be left free to work as they see best for their particular nation. They, and all men and women of good will constitute the New Group of World Servers. A central group, chosen from among them, should synthesize this work and coordinate it, whilst giving the widest latitude to individual servers and workers. [674]

This program will require patience and much cooperative work. The members of the New Group of World Servers must be discovered through their reaction to these ideals; they must be trained in the new policies, and educated in the technique of right thought, non-aggressive action, and the elimination of antagonisms of every kind; they must be taught the manner by which these basic ideals of world unity, economic synthesis and religious cooperation are to be expressed and attained. The law of Love, expressed intelligently, must be applied to all human relationships.

This work of educating the men and women of good will in the world must be proceeded with as rapidly as possible. The work must, however, be carried on with no infringement of harmony. There must be no interference with national preferences and programs, and no belittling of national governments, no matter what they may be. No political activity should be carried on in the name of the New Group of World Servers. Such action would continue the old methods and perpetuate the old hatreds. There must be no attack upon any party or group, and no criticism of any leader or national activity. Such old methods have long been tried and have failed to bring peace on earth. The members of the New Group of World Servers, and those associated with them, stand for no party, neither for nor against any group or form of control. This is their imperative position. For attack or counter-attack they have not time, energy or money. Yet their attitude is not one of "passive non-resistance". They are at work balancing world forces, and fostering the growth of that group of men who stand for good will, understanding and brotherhood.

The world of men today can be divided into two major groups. They are those who are fighting for some political party, some form of national government, some religious, [675] social or economic attitude. They are against all that is not of their inclination. There are those who are opposed to them, and who are ranged against them. Partisanship, fighting for or against, and party spirit distinguish the modern world of men. With these activities; which lead to separation and division and strife, the New Group of World Servers have no time or interest. They stand for those attitudes which will eventually produce a third party, free from political and religious hatreds. As yet they are unknown, unrealized, and relatively powerless to make a definite impression on world thought. If, however, there is skill in action and an adherence to the principles of harmonious cooperation, they can, in a very few years, demonstrate real power and influence.

The work can then swing into its second cycle of pronounced and definite influence. This will be possible only if those who have this vision will make every effort and every possible sacrifice of time and money to bring it about. Between the exploited and the exploiting, the warlike and the pacifist, the masses and the rulers, this group will stand, taking no sides, demonstrating no partisan spirit, fomenting no political or religious disturbance, and feeding no hatreds, either of individuals, nations or races. They will stand as the interpreters of right human relations, for the basic oneness of humanity, for practical brotherhood, for positive harmlessness in speech and writing, and for that inner synthesis of objectives which recognizes the value of the individual and at the same time the significance of group work. The propagation of these ideas and the spread of the principles of good will will produce this third group in world affairs.

In a few years' time, if the work is carried forward along these lines, public opinion will be forced to recognize the potency of this movement towards peace, international understanding, and mutual good will. Eventually, the numerical [676] strength of the men and women of good will in the world will be so great that they will be able to influence world events. There will then be enough people enlisted in the cause of good will to affect definitely the trend of world affairs.
