Love of truth; commitment to justice; sense of personal responsibility for the effects of all our thoughts, words and deeds; spirit of cooperation; and selfless service for the common good - these five values are proposed as stepping stones for all our activities on this planet, in order to create a culture of right human relations and mutual respect between human beings. In the Manifesto 2000 for a culture of peace and non-violence, launched by UNESCO, similar commitments are proposed: to respect all life, to reject violence, to share with others, to listen to understand, to preserve the planet, and to rediscover solidarity. This Manifesto has already been signed by 75 million people worldwide.
These two sets of values have inspired us to create a list of groups, organisations and individuals who, in their own spheres, endeavour to put these values into practice. Although we may not always share their points of view and approaches, their activities set an example of how we can serve humanity and the other kingdoms of nature. This directory is thus our contribution to the international decade for a culture of peace and nonviolence for the children of the world.
Our hope in creating this directory is twofold. Firstly, that by making known these alternatives to the present profit-oriented, materialistic world order, we might strengthen them and increase the number of their supporters. Secondly, we hope to help those who seek to serve humanity in one way or another, and who often ask us or themselves, "What can I do?". May this directory inspire them and help them find their field of service!
The directory is structured on the basis of the 10 seed-groups, a structure proposed by the Spiritual Hierarchy of our planet as a possible basis for the future world civilisation. This structure includes 10 possible fields of service. In each field, the focus of activity may be more or less esoteric. Some people work on the level of inner realisation and exploration, others on the level of outer materialisation and research. Of course, these two orientations only represent two sides of the same coin, and in some cases, the distinction is difficult to make. This explains the wide variety of groups found under each of the 10 headings:
