"These men and women of goodwill must be found and organized and thus discover their numerical potency - for it is there. They must form a world group, standing for right human relations and educating the public in the nature and power of goodwill. They will thus create a world public opinion which will be so forceful and so outspoken on the side of human welfare that leaders, statesmen, politicians, businessmen, and churchmen will be forced to listen and comply. Steadily and regularly, the general public must be taught an internationalism and a world unity which is based on simple goodwill and on cooperative interdependence."

(Problems of Humanity, p. 178)

Members of the new group of world servers and men and women of goodwill must be sought for in every department of life. They will be found among the adherents of all the current ideologies and in political and scientific circles, among the world educators and philanthropists, among the creative workers, the industrialists, in ordinary homes and in the ranks of labour.

I (Master D.K.) call on all the men and women of goodwill in the world to study the principles of the new world order. I call upon them, as they fight for justice and the rights of the little nations and the future of the children of all nations, to begin to educate those whom they can reach , in right attitudes and in that foresighted vision which make the mistakes of the past impossible in the future."

(Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 204-207)

"The New Group of World Servers is not a new organization which is forming in the world. It is simply a loose linking together of all men of constructive peace aims and goodwill who lay the emphasis upon the prior need of establishing right human relations before any lasting peace is possible. This group In no way interferes with the allegiance and loyalties of any man. It Is a banding together of all who seek to express the spirit of Christ and who are free from the spirit of hatred and revenge. The challenge of this group to the world is to drop all antagonisms and antipathies, all hatred and racial differences, and attempt to live in terms of the one family, the one life, and the one humanity."

(Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 205)

"The power which the New Group of World Servers will eventually wield, will be drawn from two sources. first, from that inner centre or subjective world government, whose members are responsible for the spread of those ideals and ideas which have led humanity onwards from age to age. This inner centre has always existed and the great leaders of the race, in every field, have been connected with it. The great idealists and world workers, (such as the Christ and His great brother, the Buddha, and those lesser workers, such as Plato Spinoza, Abraham Lincoln, or Florence Nightingale) have all been associated with this centre. The range of these associates is tremendous and the grades of these workers are many, but self -sacrificing work for the betterment of human living and love of their fellow men have distinguished them all. Yet all drew their light and inspiration from this central focal point. The members of this government may be alive in physical bodies or discarnate. It is assumed that there is belief in immortality among those who read these pages - a belief in the perpetuation of the conscious soul in some dimension. These great souls are primarily distinguished by the fact that they know no mental limitation, and their inclusiveness is such that for them there are no racial distinctions nor any religious differences.

The second source from which the New Group of World Servers will draw its power will be from the men of good will in the world at any given time. They will be able to swing into activity at any moment such a weight of thought and such a momentous public opinion that they will eventually be in a position definitely to affect world affairs. One of their functions will be to bring into touch with each other, men of similar ideals and also to direct and further their efforts,

Knowledge of these ideals will be spread everywhere in the face of opposition and distrust; these truths must be expressed in every possible language and by every available means, and every available person must be utilised to circulate them. No effort should be spared at the present time and for the next few years. This work must first of all, be undertaken through the medium of the printed page and later, when trained people are available, through the medium of the spoken word. There must be synthesis of effort and the elimination of unnecessary and personal aspects of the work."

(Esoteric Psychology II, pp. 663-664)



"The World Teacher is that Great Being Whom the Christian calls the Christ; He is known also in the Orient as the Bodhisattva, and as the Lord Maitreya, and is the One looked for by the devout Mohammedan, under the name of the Iman Madhi. He it is Who has presided over the destinies of life since about 600 B.C. and He it is Who has come out among men before, and Who is again looked for. He is the great Lord of Love and of Compassion, just as his predecessor, the Buddha, was the Lord of Wisdom. Through Him flows the energy of the second aspect, reaching Him direct from the heart centre of the Planetary Logos via the heart of Sanat Kumara. He works by means of a meditation centred within the heart. He is the World Teacher, the Master of the Masters, and the Instructor of the Devas, and to Him is committed the guidance of the spiritual destinies of men, and the development of the realization within each human being that he is a child of God and a son of the Most High.

Ever since He left the earth, as related with approximate accuracy in the Bible story (though with much error in detail) has He stayed with the sons of men; never has He really gone, but only in appearance, and in a physical body. He can be found by those who know the way, dwelling in the Himalayas, and working in close co-operation with His two great Brothers, the Manu and the Mahachohan. Daily He pours out His blessing on the world, and daily He stands under the great pine in His garden at the sunset hour with hands uplifted in blessing over all those who truly and earnestly seek to aspire. To Him all seekers are known, and, though they may remain unaware of Him, the light which He pours forth stimulates their desire, fosters the spark of struglling life and spurs on the aspirant until the momentous day dawns when they stand face to face with the One Who by being "lifted up" (occultly understood) is drawing all men unto Himself as the Initiator of the sacred mysteries."

(Initiation Human and Solar, pp. 43-44)

"In the triumph of the Crucifixion or (as it is more accurately called in the East) the Great Renunciation, Christ, for the first time, anchored on earth a tenuous thread of the divine Will, as it issued from the Father's House (Shamballa), passed into the understanding custody of the Kingdom of God (the Planetary Hierarchy), and through the medium of the Christ was brought to the attention of mankind, Through the instrumentality of certain great Sons of God the three divine aspects or characteristics of the divine Trinity - will, love and intelligence - have become a part of human thinking and aspiration. Christians are apt to forget that the crisis in the final hours of the Christ was not in those spent upon the Cross., but during those spent in the Garden of Gethsemane, when His will - In agony and almost despair was submerged in that of the Father. "Father", He said, "not my will but Thine be done." (Luke XXII, 42)

Something new, yet planned for from the very depth of time, happened then in that quiet garden; Christ, representing mankind, anchored or established the Father's will on earth and made it possible for intelligent humanity to carry it out. Hitherto., that Will had been known in the Father's House , it had been recognised and adapted to world need by the Spiritual Hierarchy, working under the Christ, and thus took shape as the divine Plan. Today, because of what Christ did in His moment of crisis hundreds of years ago, humanity can add its efforts to the working out of that Plan, The will-to-good of the Father' House can become the goodwill of the Kingdom of God and be transformed into Right Human Relations by intelligent humanity. Thus the direct line or thread of God's will reaches now from the highest place to the lowest point and can, in due time, become a cable of ascension for the sons of men and of descent for the loving, living spirit of God.

(Externalisation of the Hierarchy, pp. 605-606)

"He, the Representative of the love of God, is asked to work again in the world arena wherein His earlier message has been negated, forgotten or misinterpreted for two thousand years, and wherein hate and saparativeness have distinguished all men everywhere. This will plunge Him into a foreign atmosphere and into a situation wherein all His divine resources will be needed and will be tried to the uttermost. The generally accepted idea that He will return as a triumphant warrior, omnipotent and irresistible, has surely no basis in fact. That He will ultimately lead His people, humanity, into Jerusalem, is a fact, founded on a secure foundation; but it will not be into a Jewish city called Jerusalem, but into "the place of peace" (as the word Jerusalem means). A careful consideration of the world situation today, and a dedicated use of the imagination, will reveal to the sincere thinker how appalling is the task which He has undertaken. But He has again 'set His face to go up to Jerusalem' (Luke IX, 51); He will again appear and guide mankind into a civilisation and a state of consciousness in which right human relations and worldwide cooperation for the good of all will be the universal keynote. He will - through the new group of world servers and the men of goodwill - complete His association with the Will of God (His Father's business) in such a manner that the eternal will-to-good will be translated by humanity into goodwill and right relations, Then His task will be done; He will be free again to leave us, this time not to return, but to leave the world of men in the hands of that great spiritual Server Who will be the new Head of the Hierarchy, the Church Invisible."

(Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 609)



"The Hierarchy is composed of those Who have triumphed over matter, and Who have achieved the goal by the very self-same steps that individuals tread today. These spiritual personalities, these Adepts and Masters, have wrestled and fought for victory and, mastery upon the physical plane, and struggled with the miasmas, the fogs, the dangers, the troubles, the sorrows and pains of everyday living. They have trodden every step of the path of suffering, have undergone every experience, have surmounted every difficulty, and have won out. These Elder Brothers of the race have one and all undergone the crucifixion of the personal self, and know that utter renunciation of all which is the lot of every aspirant at this time. There is no phase of agony, no rending sacrifice, no Via Dolorosa that They have not in Their time trodden, and herein lies Their right to serve, and the strength of the method of Their appeal. Knowing the quintessence of pain, knowing the depth of sin and of suffering, Their methods can be exquisitely measured to the individual need, yet at the same time Their realization of the liberation to be achieved through pain, penalty, and suffering, and Their apprehension of the freedom that comes through the sacrifice of the form by the medium of the purificatory fires, suffices to give Them a firm hand, an ability to persist even when the form may -seem to have undergone a sufficiency of suffering, and a love that triumphs over all setbacks, for it is founded on patience and experience. These Elder Brothers of humanity are characterized by a love which endures, and which acts ever for the good of the group; by a knowledge which has been gained through a millennia of lives, in which They have worked Their way from the bottom of life and of evolution well nigh to the top; by an experience which is based on time itself and a multiplicity of personality reactions and interactions, by a courage which is the result of that experience, and which, having itself been produced by ages of endeavour, failure, and renewed endeavour, and having in the long run led to triumph, can now be placed at the service of the race; by a purpose which is enlightened and intelligent, and which is co-operative, adjusting itself to the group and hierarchical plan and thus fitting in with the purpose of the Planetary Logos; and finally They are distinguished by a knowledge of the power of sound. This final fact is the basis of that aphorism which states that all true occultists are distinguished by the characteristics of knowledge, dynamic will, courage, and silence. "To know, to will, to dare, and to be silent." Knowing the plan so well, and having clear illuminated vision, They can bend Their will unflinchingly and unswervingly to the great work of creation by the power of sound. This leads to Their silence where the average man would speak, and Their speaking where the average man is silent."

This Hierarchy of forces has four pre-eminent lines of work:

- to develop self-consciousness in all beings

- to develop consciousness in the three lower kingdoms (mineral, plant and animal)

- to transmit the will of the Planetary Logos

- to set an example to humanity.

"When men have grasped the four facts here enumerated, and they are established as acknowledged truths in the consciousness of the race, then may we look for a return of that cycle of peace and rest and righteousness which is foretold in all the Scriptures of the world, The Sun of Righteousness will then arise with healing in His wings, and the peace which passeth understanding will reign in the hearts of men."

(Initiation Human and Solar, pp. 20-25)



Seed groups are in process of being "esoterically anchored" in the field of the world, having in them those who can respond to the subtler forces and who can–through the strength of their clear thought at this stage of the proceedings–produce those conditions (within the present existing world trends and world groups) which will enable the new sciences, the new approaches to divinity, the new education, and the new modes of handling the economic situation and the political problems, to precipitate and further the growth of the Kingdom of God in such a manner that this fifth kingdom in nature may be a tangible, factual and objective occurrence upon the Earth.

(Hierarchy, p.90)

These seed groups are embryonic and therefore, like germinating seeds, their activity is at present dual. Every seed demonstrates its life by putting out two outward evidences of its internal life and activity, and these seed groups are no exception to this universal law. Their activity is evidenced in a relation to the Hierarchy and their relation to each other. Not yet have they succeeded in emerging into outer plane activity. Their inner life is not adequately strong, but they are, as says the scripture, "taking root downwards" in order to "bear fruit upwards."

Should these groups develop as intended, should the corporate life of the members persist in right integral relation and should continuance be their keynote, then these seed groups, tiny as they may be, will come to flower, and–through an eventual "scattering of the seed," succeed finally in "covering the earth with verdure." I am speaking here in the language of symbolism which is, as you well know, the language of truth.

(Hierarchy, p.27)

The seed groups now in process of forming will be distinguished by the quality of fusion, and this should be as inevitable a development as is the separative and protective nature of the ordinary human consciousness. It is this sense of union and of at-one-ment which is the protective and essential characteristic of the fifth kingdom, and it is this latent, yet actively present, factor which leads unerringly and inevitably to the organisation–interior and subjective–of the seed groups, to their radiatory activity, and to the magnetic pull they evidence when duly organised. Thus they produce fusion and blending.

The influence of these new groups is due to the close inner relation demonstrated through uniform thinking and a recognised unity of purpose. It is for this reason (a truly scientific one in its nature) that I have emphasised so strongly the ordinary characteristics of the trained disciple, which are non-criticism, sensitivity and love. Where these are lacking, this simultaneous oneness and directed thought and this "group aroma" (as it is esoterically called, though the word I am attempting to translate is more adequate than the above) become impossible. I have not been interested in the elimination of hindering faults for the individual's sake, but for the carrying forward of the desired group purposes. The need is for group thinking of a powerful nature along the indicated lines; for visualisation of the Vision of such a clear nature that it becomes a fact for the individual; for the development and functioning of the imagination, applied to the lines of outcome and results, and functioning so creatively that the results are seen with clarity and must inevitably materialise. It involves also the holding of the inner subjective link with each other with such firmness that potent centres of force and of creative energy–working under inspiration from the Hierarchy, via the focussed minds of group members who are definitely en rapport with their [Page 104] souls and with each other–may function so successfully that the new civilisation and the new culture can be rapidly established. As this has to be founded on a basis of loving goodwill and upon nondestruction, and as its methods lead to right relations between men and nations, it is essential that the establishing groups should themselves express the subtler aspects of these desired virtues.

(Hierarchy, p.102-104)




1- Telepathic communicators

These people are receptive to impression from the Masters and from each other; they are the [Page 36] custodians of group purpose and, therefore, closely related to all the other types of groups. Their work is largely on the mental plane and they work in and with thought matter and with the reception and direction of thought currents. They are also working at the facilitation of communication between individuals so that the rules and methods whereby speech can be transcended may become known and the new way of intercourse be brought about…

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Telepathic communication from soul to soul through alignment: from mind to mind through integration; between humanity and Hierarchy (the inner government of the planet) through the Science of impression.


2- Trained Observers

Their objective is to see clearly through all events, through space and time by means of the cultivation and use of the intuition. They work very largely on the astral plane at the dissipation of glamour, thus bringing in illumination to mankind. Thus another type of energy is brought into play, producing another type of inter-relation and communication. This communication is between the plane which is the plane of illumination and pure reason (the buddhic plane) and the plane of illusion and glamour, which is the astral plane. The Trained Observers are asked to remember that their great task is to dispel the world illusion through the pouring in of light…

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Dissipation of world glamour, illusion and maya through illumination.


3- Magnetic Healers

These healers have no relation to the work of the so-called magnetic healers of today. They work intelligently with the vital forces of the etheric body. Much of their work is dealt with in the fourth volume of A Treatise on the Seven Rays. This group of healers must bring about the right healing of the personalities of individuals in all aspects of their nature. The work to be done is that of the intelligent transmission of energy to various parts of the nature–mental, emotional and physical–through the right organisation and circulation of force. Present day healers should endeavour to break loose from the modern and traditional ideas as to healing; they should recognise the stupendous fact that healing must eventually be carried forward by groups which will act as the intermediaries between the plane of spiritual energy (either soul energy, intuitional energy or will energy) and the patient or group of patients…

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Through "magnetic living". Through laws of life — laws of health and right human relationships. Through continuity of consciousness.


4- Educators in the New Age

Their service is along the line of culture and they will work to bring in the new type of education. Their emphasis will be upon the building of the antahkarana and upon the use of the mind in meditation. Again–much of this new educational science will be given in the fifth volume of the series. They will act as communicators and [Page 38] transmitters of two aspects of divine energy–knowledge and wisdom. These must be thought of in terms of energy. This fourth group (whose work is concerned with the education of the masses) is a direct intermediary between the higher mind and the lower mind…

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Education through inflow of the light of knowledge into "instinctual man". — Through inflow of the light of th wisdom into "intelligent man". Through applied knowledge, expressed wisdom and occult understanding in "spiritual man".


5- Political organisers

The fifth group will concern itself with political factors in every nation. They will work in the world of human government, dealing with the problems of civilisation and with the relationships existing between nations. The bringing about of international understanding will be their major objective. This group communicates the "quality of imposition", and an authority that is lacking in the other branches of this divine group activity. This work is largely first ray work. It will embody the method whereby the divine Will works out in the consciousness of races and nations.

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

International understanding through communication of the divine (political) Will into races and nations, linking the department of the Manu (the Ruler of the human race) with men.


6- Workers in the field of religion

Their work is to formulate the universal platform of the new world religion. It is a work of loving synthesis and it will emphasize the unity and the fellowship of the spirit. This group is, in a pronounced sense, a channel for the activity of the second Ray of Love-Wisdom, that of the World Teacher–an office held at present by the Christ. The platform of the new world religion will be built by the many groups, working under the inspiration of the Christ and the influence of the second ray and these–in their totality–will constitute this sixth group.

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Through transcendental mysticism. Through transcendental occultism. Through transcendental religion.


7- Scientific servers

They will reveal the essential spirituality of all scientific work which is motivated by love of humanity and its welfare, which relates science and religion and brings to light the glory of God through the medium of His tangible world and His works. They have a most interesting function but one which will not become evident for a long time–not until the building forces of the universe are better understood. This will be co-incident with the development of etheric vision.

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Through development of new hypotheses to substantiate the next step forward. Through sensitive reaction to spiritual energies and forces. Through release of energy to relate spirit and matter and precipitate the divine Plan.


8- Psychologists

They will form this next group and they will be concerned with the revelation of the fact of the soul and with the new psychology which will be based upon the seven ray types and the new esoteric astrology. Their major task will be to relate, through approved techniques, the soul and the personality, leading to the revelation of divinity through the medium of humanity. They will act also as transmitters of illumination between groups of thinkers and as illuminators of group thought. They transmit energy from one thought centre to another and, above everything else, they transmit the energy of ideas. The world of ideas is a world of dynamic force centres… These ideas have to be contacted and noted and their energy has to be assimilated and transmitted.

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Through relationship of the human kingdom to the sub-human and the super-human kingdom. Through a study of the divine Plan for the five kingdoms in nature.


9- Financiers and Economists

They will work with the energies and forces which express themselves through the interchange and the values of commerce; they will deal with the Law of Supply and Demand and with the great principle of Sharing which ever governs divine purpose. They will [Page 40] be the great psychometrical workers, for a psychometrist is one whose soul is sensitive to the soul in others and in all forms of life. The principle of Sharing which must govern economic relations in the future is a soul quality or energy and hence their work of relating soul with soul.

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Through study of the nature of prana or etheric energy. — Through study of deflection of this form of concretised energy into constructive channels and "ways of light". — Through study of the law of supply and demand.


10- Creative workers

They are communicators between the third aspect of Divinity, the Creative Aspect–as it expresses itself through the creative work and in response to the thought world–and the first aspect, Life. They link and blend life and form creatively. They are closely related to the ninth group because today, unknowingly and without any true understanding, they are bringing about a concretisation of the energy of desire; this in its turn brings about the creation of things. Incidentally, therefore, they are concerned with the concretisation of money. Their work is also largely philosophical and concerned with the task of relating–factually and scientifically–the other nine types of groups so that they may work creatively upon the physical plane and the divine Plan may clearly appear as a result of this synthesis which they bring about.

(Discipleship, I, p.35-40)

Summary of the work domains :

Through linking life and form. Through philosophical relationship of all ten groups. Through demonstration of synthesis and the Plan.






Brief history:

During World War II, the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, France, and China began the formation of a new world organization similar to the League of Nations which dissolved in 1946. The U.N. was officially founded in April 1945, then 50 nations signed the Charter of the United Nations on June 26.

Organizational goals and purposes:

There are six branches of the United Nations. Each member has a representative to the General Assembly, which makes recommendations on all matters relevant to the Charter. The Security Council is responsible for promoting peace and security. The Economic and Social Council manages the economic and social work of the U.N. and other related agencies. The Trusteeship Council helps governments presiding over Trust Territories to prepare themselves for self-government and independence, The judicial branch of the U.N. is the International Court of Justice. The Secretariat supports the other branches of the U.N, by implementing programs and maintaining policies that have been chosen by them.

Typical activities:

The United Nations attemps to maintain international peace. The U.N. also promotes friendly relations among nations and seeks to achieve cooperation in solving world problems. Finally, the U.N. centralizes the actions of nations working to achieve these goals.

Size and scope:

In 1992 there were 179 members in the United Nations. The organization is universal and conducts its business in six official languages.

"In June 1945, the Christ set in motion the forces of reconstruction which are related to the Will aspect of divinity and -which remain as yet the least powerful of the three streams of energy, released during the three Full Moon Festivals in 1945. These forces of reconstruction are effective mainly in relation to those entities which we call nations. The Hierarchy is at this time attempting to channel them into the Assembly of the United Nations; the use made of these impersonal energies is dependent upon the quality and the nature of the recipient nation, on its measure of true enlightenment and on its point in evolution. Nations are the expression today of the massed selfcentredness of a people and of their instinct to self-preservation. These energies can, therefore., increase that aspect of their lives. They can, however, in spite of this, increase the potency of the objective which the United Nations (at present) theoretically hold before the eyes of men everywhere. The main object of the Hierarchy is so to distribute these constructive, synthesising energies that the theory of unity may slowly be turned into practice, and the word "United" may come to have a true significance and meaning."

(Reappearance of the Christ, p. 93)

"The vision in men's minds today is that of the Aquarian Age, even if they recognize it not. The future will see right relationships, true communion, a -sharing of all thing.- (,%,vine, the blood, the life and bread, economic satisfaction) and goodwill; we have also a picture of the future of humanity when all nations are united in complete understanding and the diversity of languages - symbolic of differing traditions, cultures, civilisations and points of view - will provide no barrier to right human relations. At the centre of each of these pictures is to be found the Christ.

Thus the expressed aims and efforts of the United Nations will be eventually brought to fruition and a new church of God, gathered out of all religions -and spiritual groups, will unitedly bring to an end the great heresy of separateness. Love, unity, and the Risen Christ will be present, and He will demonstrate to us the perfect life.

(Destiny of the Nations, p. 152)

The United Nations is an example of one organization that has activities in almost all ten fields of service of the ten seed-groups. Here are a few examples of U.N. agencies that work in fields related to the ten seed-groups.

The outer circle, called "Non-governmental Organizations" and depicted in green to represent our planet Earth, includes all those who are now working in order to create a better world. Motivated by a shared concern for human well-being that crosses national, racial and confessional borders, these people gather in groups, associations, organizations, in order to further specific aims, such as environment or consumer protection, East/West and North/South exchanges, cultural activities, fighting for the rights of minorities, education, and many others, Whatever their field of activity, they need to relate to each other on a global-scale in order to become ever more effective. This is the whole purpose of the ten seed-group work proposed in this manual and accompanying poster.

Cooperation between the United Nations and NGOs is becoming increasingly important, Besides NGO Liaison Officers in each agency and department of the U.N., there exists in Geneva a special "United Nations NonGovernmental Liaison Service". Its aims are to advise NGOs in Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand, on request, on design and implementation of Programmes, identifying and providing information available from the UN system, linking NGOs with other organizations sharing similar interests and with UN staff, promoting NGO networks active on specific development issues, preparing and producing development education tools, publicising innovative NGO research and action. Its main thematic area is the New International Economic Order, with special emphasis on consumer protection, development financing, disarmament and development, documentation service exchange, environment and development, food and agriculture, industrial restructuring, New World Information and Communication Order, population, science and technology for development, trade and commodities, trade unions and employment, transnational corporations.

The service regularly publishes the "UN Development Education Directory for NGOs in Industrialized Countries", with information on UN materials, resources and services available, how to obtain them and from where.

The mailing address of the Service is:

"The question now arises: In what way can we be of service? How can we aid during this preparatory stage of the reappearance of the Christ?

What the members of the spiritual Hierarchy are doing is much Indeed; those disciples who are in conscious touch with the Masters of the Wisdom or, if you prefer the term, with the senior disciples of the Christ - are working day and night in order to establish such confidence, correct attitudes and understanding of the divine spiritual "push" or enterprise that His way will be made easier. They and their groups of lesser disciples, aspirants and students of the realities stand unitedly behind the Christ and can thus enable Him to accomplish His purpose. Their major realisation is that of a cyclic ; it is one which has been anticipated crisis in the spiritual life of our planet, in the Father's House (Shamballa) for thousands of years. They have registered the fact that, for the first time in human history, all the three spiritual centres or groups through which God works are unitedly focussed on the same objective, Shamballa, the Spiritual Hierarchy, and Humanity (the Father's House, the Kingdom of God, and the world of men) are all striving in one vast movement for an Intensification of the Light of the World. This Light will irradiate in a fashion unknown before, not only the Father's House, which is the source of all our planetary light, but also the spiritual centre from which have come all Those Teachers and World Saviours Who have stood before men and said, as did Hermes, the Buddha and the Christ: "I am the Light of the World." This light will now flood the world of men, bringing illumination to men's minds and light into the dark places of human living."

Write it down in the blank space in the outer circle. You will be surprised at the results! Find then other persons and groups which work in the same field as you and seek to cooperate with them. As a second step, try to get in touch and to cooperate with people who are active in the other fields, the ones where at the moment you have no relations at all. Begin at the local level, then extend your network of relationships to the regional, national, continental, international and global levels. The circle of the United Nations is there to give you an idea of all that is already being done on a global scale to improve the way in which we manage our planet. It is time we extend our relationships to form a worldwide network of non-governmental organizations as well.

Good luck, and much joy in the common work!


The 10 seed-group work is open for all human beings on our planet, as a means of sharing global tasks and duties; it gives us the joy of awakening to our true existence as Cosmic Units of the One Life.


The sons of men are one, and we are one with them.
We seek to love, not hate;
We seek to serve and not exact due service;
We seek to heal, not hurt.
Let pain bring due reward of light and love.
Let the soul control the outer form, And life, and all events,
And bring to light the Love That underlies the happenings of the time.
Let vision come and insight.
Let the future stand revealed.
Let inner union demonstrate and outer cleavages be gone.
Let love prevail.
Let all men love.
