Esoteric Psychology II - Chapter III - Humanity Today - The New Group of World Servers
No idle pacifism will be taught. It is no mystical dream which waits for God to take action and which relies on the future to straighten things out. It is no impractical idea, incapable of application. It is the plan for the development of a group of people, gathered out of every nation, who are trained in the spirit of good will, and who possess such a clear insight into the principles that should govern human relations in world affairs, that they can work with power in the field of human peace and understanding. It is a systematized process of education. By its means, men and women everywhere are to be trained to live as exponents of good will in every department of life, and the power of intelligent good will to adjust difficulties in every department of human affairs is unbelievably potent. But as yet, that growing spirit of good will has not been intelligently developed, applied, and systematized. Thousands of men and women are ready today throughout the world to be so trained, and to be brought into cooperation with each other, so that there can eventually be unity of effort in the cause of peace and harmonious relations. The New Group of World Servers seeks to discover these people, and unify them into a coherent group.

In conclusion, it might be said, therefore, that the New Group of World Servers seeks to help in the restoration of world balance and peace through the activity - coordinated, definite, and applied - of this emerging group of people, who can constitute a third group or "middle party" (to borrow a phrase from the field of politics) between those who are fighting for, and those who are fighting against, any group, religious organization, political affiliation or form of government. [677]

Through their work, the consciousness of humanity will be steadily evoked on the side of righteousness and peace. Righteousness will be regarded as the conscious establishing of right relations with one's fellow men. When the mass conscience is evoked and functioning, a stabilized opinion will be possible, and will be so strong that, in every country, acts of cruelty, of oppression, of enforced obedience through penalizing, of selfish aggrandizement at the expense of the helpless, of personal ambition, and of war will no longer be tolerated.

The time must come in the history of humanity when so large a number of people have been awakened to the finer spiritual issues and values that the old attitudes and activities will be rendered eternally impossible on a large scale. This coming period will be the correspondence in the life of humanity to that stage in the life of the disciple and Christian wherein he is no longer a victim of his wrong tendencies and habits, but begins to dominate them by imposing his enlightened spiritual will upon his lower nature. This stage can now be developed in our present day humanity for the first time in its history. One of the main functions of the New Group of World Servers is to bring about these changed attitudes, to foster the growth of a true public opinion through the education of the thinking people in the principles of good will and right relations. They in their turn will educate the masses. Thus it will be possible to profit by the emerging tendency towards righteousness and good will which is today most definitely present, even if weak and as yet but little realized.

The second function of the New Group of World Servers is to interpret the ideals and objectives which should govern the race and to familiarize the public with the immediate possibilities. By these means, they will eventually awaken in the masses an intelligent response, an ardent desire and a right [678] activity. In this way the idea of the few will become the ideal of the many, and will finally make its appearance as a working fact in human consciousness. The new, compelling, inner impulses must stand revealed to the human intellect. The growing tendency towards brotherhood (of which our modern philanthropic enterprises are an illustration), the ideal of group welfare in contradistinction to individual aims of a selfish and ambitious kind, and the enunciation of those principles which must and will govern the next world cycle, - these interpretations and their right and intelligent application must be carried forward. Through this form of mass education the new age will begin to make its potencies felt. The activities of the New Group of World Servers will lead to the establishment of two momentous facts. These are as yet only theories to the mass, though established knowledge to the few. They are:

  1. The fact of an intelligent, unfolding Plan which underlies the entire evolutionary process of the world, and which history and the growth of human consciousness demonstrate infallibly.
  2. The fact of immortality, or of life which persists when divorced from the body.

The recognition of these two facts will bring about great changes in world attitudes and governments, when the underlying purpose of world events is grasped and when the hope of immortality becomes a known accepted fact. World affairs and modern life conditions will then be seen in true perspective. Upon this we need not here enlarge, but when it is seen that the growth of good will in the world is the normal emergence of that which is inevitable, and when all that is occurring is seen in its relation to an eternal future, there are [679] carried to our minds implications of profound magnitude to the race.

The third function of the New Group of World Servers, and one that is of immediate import today, is to gather together into one loosely knit group, the men and women of good will throughout the world. Those who respond to these ideas and who show no antagonistic reactions to these truths must be brought into relation with each other. This group is today in existence. The nucleus for the work is already there. Their numbers must be steadily increased and their usefulness developed by a steady education in the basic principles of good will, during the next five years. Sufficient momentum will then have been developed so as to make it possible to initiate right activity. The New Group of World Servers should then be in a position to mould public opinion.
