Goodwill and the Forces of Reconstruction

O Lord, give strength to our hearts and power to our arms.
Because We are Thy servant.
In Thy Rays We shall learn the eternal Truth of Being.
In Thy Voice We shall listen to the harmony of the World.
Our hearts We give to Thee, O Lord.
Sacrifice them for the sake of the World.

Gemini~Goodwill Festival and the Forces of Reconstruction

In Aries, we experienced the Forces of Restoration ~ the Mind of God … Intelligent Activity in Divine Nature … Manas.

From the Point of Light within the Mind of God,
let Light stream forth into the minds of Humanity.
(2)

In Taurus, the Energies of Enlightenment from the Heart of God ~ Divine Understanding … Buddhi.

From the Point of Love within the Heart of God,
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of All.
(2)

Now, in Gemini, the Energies of Reconstruction ~ the Theory of Unity into practice ... the Will of God ... Atma.

From the Centre where the Will of God is known,
let Purpose guide the little wills of Humankind.

Sixty years ago the first printing of Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. II appeared. In it, Master D.K. told us that Humanity had entered the world of meaning and was then, for the first time, entering the "Circle of Liberation" … and, upon entering this Circle, would be confronted by the first major lesson ~ the Unity of the One Life. He further said that this form of presentation of the Unity of the One Life will be more easily recognized by the masses than such terms as Brotherhood, Relationship, Fraternity. This indicates that the newer phrase is more in line with scientific discoveries about the nature of energy and the Cosmos … rather than the more emotionally oriented references to Brotherhood and Fraternity. (3)

We can see much progress in the last 60 years, and the New Group of World Servers has been and is doing outstanding work in creating Lighted relationships of Good Will within Humanity, including those servers whose work is with the United Nations and relations between all countries. A world community is being established!

The reconstruction of the world is not dependent upon human creativeness, but at the same time one cannot say that humanity is excluded from the expanding spatial power. The bond linking man and Cosmos is inseverable. Thus, that which exists is expressed in forms predestined by the Cosmic Magnet. But man is also an expression of the existing, and thus man is revealed either as a force moving toward the Magnet or as an obstructive symbol.

That which is set forth as a creative manifestation will find its channel of expression; but the form of the action is bound with the karma of man. Since the Highest Reason has ordained the shifting, as an elemental action, it must be said that the shifting is indispensable. But, besides the shifting, there is the matter which receives the entrusted mission of construction. When the Spatial Fire pierces the earthly layers, there must be the understanding of true cooperation. The Cosmos is one, and man's finest aspiration is to be a part of it. Therefore, not separation but unification. Hence, either the predestined will be affirmed in the measure of the creative Magnet or the part assumed by man will establish the channel. Thus do the great forces mutually strive.

We have witnessed how the predominance of one channel disturbed the balance; therefore, power lies not in domination by force but in union of forces!

Renewal of Possibilities
Utilizing The Principle of Directed Purpose

But, is it possible that not all of the work is going in the right direction? For even with the best intentions and hard work, until or unless a disciple’s work is in line with the Principle of Directed Purpose, they may veer off in the wrong direction and thus lose valuable time and waste precious energy.

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. It is with this type of energy that the Avatar of Synthesis is peculiarly allied. He will convey to humanity, with the aid of the Christ, something for which we have as yet no name. It is neither love nor will, as we understand them. Only a phrase of several words will bring to us something of the meaning. This phrase is the principle of directed purpose. This principle involves three things:

1. Understanding—intuitive and spiritually instinctual, but intelligently interpreted—of the Plan, as it can be worked out in the immediate future by the Christ and His disciples.

2. Focussed intention, based upon the above and emphasising an aspect of the will, hitherto undeveloped in man.

3. Capacity to direct energy (through understanding and intent) towards a recognised and desired end, overcoming all obstacles and destroying all that stands in its way. This is not the destruction of forms by force such as we have seen imposed upon the world, but a destruction brought about by the greatly strengthened life within the form. (4)

Let us consider the following, in light of the quoted enumeration just above:

1. PLAN

Humanity is scheduled to take the third initiation towards the end of this Fifth root race and the beginning of the Sixth. The Kingdom of the Soul will have become fully manifest on Earth. Humanity will then recognize itself as the Higher Self, knowing there are further advancements also to be made, because the evolutionary process of form and consciousness, and the entering into higher and higher recognitions of the Divine Life ~ called initiations, will be common knowledge and part of the world culture. There are many third degree initiates and those of higher attainment on the planet at this time who have come to help prepare the way for this coming major achievement.

The creative presentations now being built into the thought life of Humanity include

Our essential identity
The Unity of the One Life
Identification with the Whole of Cosmos
The recognition that  all humanity is in fact One Community within that Whole

These are perhaps some of the most important concepts we can help to spread in our individual and group work. This does not necessarily require a change in our activities, but only the underlying motive for those activities.

By beginning with the Universal context of the Whole, and then placing our individual ideas and contributions within it, we greatly contribute to the quality and level of thinking of all. It is valuable to remember that the energies of all humans are raised by the the state of consciousness determined by the quality of our thinking, which of course determines ensuing actions. Karma can be changed through a change in attitudes and desires. What humankind has made that presently exists, we can re-make anew!

2. PURPOSE

Every attempt to invoke our Spiritual Will in service will lift our own energies into the higher realms of Universal Thought, whereby the Soul of Humanity can be reached and inspired. Developing the Spiritual Will gives us understanding of true Love in proper spiritual context.

The work of reconstruction seems to require the use of a new Universal vocabulary of the Real, which includes all of Cosmos and the place of our Planet and all its life forms within that Whole.

With Pentecost just past, we can imagine a time when all humanity will understand one another by becoming aware of these grand concepts through education, film, color presentations, symbols, story telling … these will become part of our civilization and then the Soul of Humanity will have the material it needs to impress the enlightened consciousness of all who are ready to receive it.

The broad general outlines mentioned here are quite new to many members of humanity, and yet are only an outline that will be filled in during the coming years by the work of disciples in every field. But the synthetic idea of the Unity of the Whole as the eternal Reality is a necessary beginning that puts all else in context.

3. PRECIPITATION

We know that the ultimate Purpose of Life on our planet has to do with developing and displaying Divinity through matter, thus redeeming the substance of the planet and eventually achieving Union with The Originating Source. This is an individual, Planetary and Cosmic Process. Our planetary part in this Cosmic Process is held by Shamballa, and implemented by Hierarchy in stages that can be accomplished within a given time period, age after age.

The energies of the New Age are penetrating the planetary life … let us prepare the substance of our planet to receive them; And let us Invoke and Align with the Forces of Divinity through the use of our Sacrificial Will.

The basis of community is scientifically confirmed, and each principle expressed by a community will be activated by conformity with the World Community. ... Thus, beginning with the seed, the construction of a community can result in the Community of the World. One must reorganize all human undertakings in order that the consciousness may approach the Community of the World. ... When an affirmed step is being built, Cosmos acts through shifting. Verily, the hour will soon strike. Verily, the predestined will arrive.
