The Externalization of the Hierarchy - Section I - Introductory Remarks
The cause for the momentous situation which calls for a realignment of our educational systems and processes, and for a readjustment of our present concepts of education, is to be found in the fact that the light of knowledge and the benefits which accrue from it have penetrated to the lowest grades of these slowly evolving people; all three groups are now strictly human and not simply the first two. The highest of them is therefore nearing the stage of demonstrating that which is superhuman and the lowest is separating itself (by almost imperceptible stages) from the animal condition. This necessarily causes a cleavage but it is one of which the highest group and the Hierarchy itself is cognizant, and which they "heal by their own inclusiveness." Forget not, that the greater can always include the lesser and thus bridge all gaps.

It is the education of these three groups which will be considered by the fourth group which has as its project education in the new age. Here again we touch the threefold purpose which each group has to hold before itself and which in the present instance consists of:

  1. The educating of the lowest of these groups into which humanity divides itself, so that they can become strictly and consciously human. This was the objective of the impulse which inspired the Renaissance and which lay behind the work of Rousseau, that great initiate, and this is the impulse which is today responsible for modern Humanism with its apparent materialism and yet its deeply spiritual subjective program and purpose. This eventually produces civilization by the inflow of the light of knowledge. [50]
  2. The education of the second group so that it may be stimulated by the inflow of the light of wisdom and thus constitute a bridging group between the other two, being - as it is - strictly human and self-conscious. This process will make of its members cultural aspirants, with a new sense of values, with a recognition of spiritual objectives and with a developed ability to make them the molders of public opinion. They will then be the most important group, expressing the culture of the new age. They will set the standard of values for the masses.
  3. The education of the advanced thinkers, of the aspirants and world disciples in applied knowledge, expressed wisdom and occult understanding. This group synthesizes all that is available in the other two groups and thus forms the nucleus of the Kingdom of God, of the fifth kingdom which is so rapidly coming into being.

I cannot do more than indicate these points, for their proper theme and their elucidation will be dealt with in the group's instructions. What I have stated, however, will serve to indicate to you the general theme of the new education and point the way to some of the considerations which are prompting my handling of this subject.

The work to be done (political service) by the fifth group of disciples is by far the most difficult of any for it is in many ways far less advanced. This is due to two facts:

  1. The masses of men are, as yet, relatively so little evolved that the task of this group of workers must therefore necessarily be dependent upon the success of the educational work of the world, as it will eventually be exemplified by the ideals and point of view of the fourth group and similar groups everywhere.
  2. So few truly first ray people are manifesting on the planet at this time and, when they do, their work perforce proves destructive, owing to the unevolved condition of the masses of men. That is why revolutions [51] so seldom, if ever, can be carried out without bloodshed, for the intended ideas have to be imposed upon the masses and are not immediately recognized and adopted by those masses; they evoke counter responses which arouse those in authority to wrong activity. The above ideas should arouse you to careful thought.

Let it not be forgotten that the objective of all true governmental control is right synthesis, leading to right national and interior group activity. The problem resolves itself into a dual one. First of all, we have the problem of the type of authority which should be recognized by the peoples; and secondly, we have the problem of the methods which should be employed, so that the chosen authoritative measures will proceed either by the method of enforced control, or would be of such a nature that they will evoke a generously rendered and recognized cooperation. Between these two ways of working, many changes can be rung, though the system of cooperation, willingly rendered by an intelligent majority, has never yet been seen. But we are moving towards such a condition of world consciousness and are on our way towards experimenting with it.

Let me here briefly indicate to you some of the modes of government which have been tried out, or will be tried out in the future.
